MTV has finally decided on a location for the second season of their mega hit reality show Jersey Shore. The new season will be filmed in Miami, reports the Miami Herald.
There had been numerous reports and speculations in the past couple of months on where the 2nd season would be filmed. The Jersey Shore was not an option because MTV wanted to start filming this month, and needed a warmer climate.
According to the Miami Herald, some locals did protest MTV bringing the show to their home town, but despite their cries, it is said to be a done deal. The 2nd season of Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami is also currently filming in Miami. Perhaps we will have some reality cross contamination with the two shows.
The new season is scheduled to begin filming in 2 weeks.
Heidi Montag, star of the MTV’s The Hills, is getting in on the joke by spoofing herself in a new Funny or Die video.
The 23 year-old reality star, who made headlines earlier this year when she revealed having 10 cosmetic procedures done in one day, joined forces with Oscar-winning director Ron Howard to film the parody.
In the parody, Heidi pokes fun at herself in her attempt to urge Congress to enact financial reform so that more people and reality stars can afford to pay for their surgeries with their credit cards. Heidi’s douchebag husband Spencer Pratt also makes a cameo.
Is the Jersey Shore cast getting ready to take their fist pumping to Miami? It seems so, as multiple reports reveal the cast is planning to relocate to Miami to film it’s second season.
Just weeks after the cast and MTV negotiated a nice payday (a reported $10,000 per episode), it’s being reported the network is in talks to rent out a house on Lincoln Road for this season’s filming. Snooki also tweeted days ago that she is moving to Miami. Past reports reveal MTV wants to start filming in March.
In other news, it seems 22 year old Snooki has finally found a “juiced up guido” to call her own. Snooki reveals she has found love in new boyfriend Emilio Masella, a 22 year old personal trainer at the Gold’s Gym in New Haven, Conn.
The two met on facebook over a year ago and became exclusive just days ago. Masella tells PEOPLE. “We started talking online again before the show even started airing and started hanging out again.”
According to Snooki, she and Emilio are the “sexiest couple I have ever seen in my entire life.”
Last we heard from the attentionwhore known as Heidi Montag, she informed us she was heading back to her hometown of Crested Butte, Colorado, to visit her mother, Darlene Egelhoff, for the first time since undergoing 10 cosmetic procedures in one day.
“I was nervous, but also excited … I never thought in my wildest dreams she was going to react the way she did,” Mrs. Pratt, 23, told PEOPLE.
The mother daughter reunion – which was filmed for The Hills – was less than joyous according to Heidi. “She was looking at me almost like a zoo animal. It wasn’t like I was her daughter anymore. She was looking at me like I was a circus freak,” says Heidi.
“I think she was most upset that Spencer was there for me and she wasn’t. She was saying how sad it is that my confidence is gone because of the music industry I’m trying to get into.”
Heidi, who’s first album release sold less than 1,000 it’s first week, then goes on to say she has zero regrets about the surgeries despite still being in pain. “I wanted to be the most beautiful, inside and out. It’s part of being a pop star,” she says.

First comes fame, then comes the pitfalls of fame. It seems Jersey Shore’s Snooki is now experiencing the later as RadarOnline is reporting that nude photos and videos of the 21 year old reality star have now gone up for sale.
According to Radar, Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, is featured in the self-snapped nude photos and video that are currently being shopped around to various media outlets.
It seems RadarOnline has seen these photos and according to them, Snooki took the steamy shots and footage herself, appears in her bedroom in one photo, kneeling with one hand on the floor and the other grabbing her bed frame. And according to Radar, another photo is simply too raunchy to describe.
Snooki is however denying this as she took to her twitter page yesterday to post the following – “Idk [I don't know] where radar online comes up with their stories … weirdos.” She continued, “Like i said before about my supposed ‘sex tape’…There are no nude pictures nor will there ever be. the tabloids just love snook gossip ;]”
RadarOnline is however certain the photos are indeed of Snooki. Just last week, Radar also reported nude photos of castmember J-Woww were also being shopped around.
In other Shore news, TMZ is reporting the second season which is now scheduled to begin filming in March, will be filmed at a new location. Evidently, the Jersey Shore is too cold at this time of the year, and MTV is looking into other locations to film season 2. TMZ also confirms that search has expanded out of the country, as MTV Producers have called the cast members to make sure they have valid passports.

TMZ is confirming that a deal has finally been struck between the cast of Jersey Shore and MTV.
All the cast members are expected to return. According to TMZ, Vinny, Ronnie and JWoww accepted the $10,000 per episode offer. No word on if the other cast members will also be paid the same amount.
Though a deal has been agreed to in principle, lawyers for the cast are still trying to hammer out certain terms of the deal. Apparently, one of the main issues is how many paid club appearances the cast members will be able to do each week. Snooki, Pauly D and The Situation want the right to appear at as many as four clubs and other venues a week ..
As we reported earlier, some of the cast members are able to pull between $7,500 – $10,000 per club appearance.
UPDATE - A MTV Exec confirms the entire cast will be returning for a 2nd season and also reveals it will be filmed at a different location.
“Our audience has fallen in love with ‘Jersey Shore’ and its amazing cast who have really grown together as a family” said Tony DiSanto, President of Programming for MTV. “That bond gives the show its heart, and we’re thrilled to reunite these friends to bring fans more of what they love — laughs, love, drama and of course GTL.”
Negotiations are still taking place between the cast of Jersey Shore and MTV.
As we previously reported, MTV offered the cast each a $10,000 signing bonus along with $5,000 per episode to return for a 2nd season. The cast decided to reject that offer, leading MTV to then increase the offer to $10,000 per episode along with the 10 Gs signing bonus.
The HollwoodReporter is now reporting that the cast is close to reaching a deal with MTV. According to the report, the fact that MTV raised the offer made for a positive turn in negotiations. A deal is expected to be reached by the end of this week.
Apparently MTV is eager to get the cast shooting the new season, which they hope to air in July or August.
The main issue now is a production hurdle, as the show is based during the summer but MTV wants to air it during the summer time. It seems MTV will likely film the 2nd season during the winter or spring.
In other Shore news, RadarOnline is reporting that nude pictures of cast member Jwoww, real name Jenni Farley, are being shopped around. No word yet on who is shopping around the images or whether any media outlet has purchased these raunchy images.
UPDATE - TMZ is reporting 2 of the cast members have accepted MTV’s offer. Those cast members are Ronnie and JWoww. The latest is MTV is now drawing a hard line by saying it’s do or die. The cast members that don’t accept the offer by tomorrow will be replaced.
It’s becoming difficult to keep up with Heidi Montag and her lies. First she claimed her mom was upset over her multiple plastic surgeries (Heidi, 23, had breast implants, a brow lift, botox in her forehead, a nose job revision, fat injections in her cheeks, a chin reduction, neck liposuction and had her ears pinned back.), however she is now singing a different tune by revealing her plans to get her mother plastic surgery.
In a new interview with Nightline, the liarHills star completely backtracks on her past comments and even claims her mom was well aware of her plans to have 10 cosmetic procedures in one day. “I’ve had this conversation with her several times. So I think she knew,” she says. “I already heard what she had to say.”
Heidi says the only thing she didn’t tell her mother was the date of her surgery because she “didn’t want it to be a circus. And I didn’t want it to be crazy media outside my house.”
And we can be sure to expect some mommy daughter plastic surgery bonding in the near future as Heidi reveals her plans to get her mother under the knife. “Actually, she was excited for me and she’s asking me … for her surgery next,” says Heidi. “So for Mother’s Day, I have to ask [surgeon] Dr. Frank Ryan if he’ll do the mommy makeover.”
