Back to the boardwalk! Last night’s Jersey Shore took a step back from the norm. Instead of being a PSA of how not to act/dress/drink yourself into a combination of regret, remorse and oblivion, it was more a study in sociology. This show has long been touted as a gluttonous look at very tan, very blinged out people with too much money, time and booze… but not quite enough sense. As it should be.
However, before I ever got this dream job of blogging for RT, I watched religiously — and not for the antics and the ridic catch phrases and abbreviations (although those are Ah. Maze. Ing!) — because, unlike with any other heavily scripted reality show, these folks really seem to care about one another. They brawl, they bitch, they hook-up, things get awkward, but no matter what, at the end of the day, they really are a family. #SundayDinners

Happy Jerzday kids. In today’s Jersey Shore update the stars of the Boardwalk are everywhere – on talk shows, getting tattooed, talking about each other, but is it too much? Here’s a break down of what’s been happening in guido-land!
First up, Snooki got a new tattoo to go along with her new super svelte body. Snooki tweeted: “Gettin tattoo done as we speak omg I can’t . If I could say every curse word in the book I would……well I am. Out loud and proud.”
The petite pistol got a star with leopard print kisses and some hair pieces zebra stripes tattooed on her shoulder to go with the crown and pink bow on her other shoulder. This newest ink matches her very vibrant hair color! Photos of Snooki getting inked are below!
Next up, is the cast of Jersey Shore over-exposed? I mean they are everywhere with product endorsements, creating their own products, ring tones, liquor, tanning solutions — you name it — and now they are headed for spin offs? Is that just too much of a good thing?
Allegedly, yes. In Touch Weekly is claiming the cast can no longer make big bucks for appearances anymore because they are too prevalent! “They’ve saturated the market,” an insider claims. “Their popularity has dropped and venues are bored of them.” Well, they are only good at a few things: getting drunk, acting skanky and acting a mess… so yeah, I mean it’s not like they have actual talents to fall back on!
Over exposure or no, that certainly didn’t stop several clubs from booking them for New Years Eve celebrations. Of course, I don’t know how much money they earned to show up!
Finally, the ladies of Seaside Heights gossiped to MTV News about The Unit, The Situation’s brother from another mother. And if you’re wondering what The Unit refers to — it’s below his belt thankyouverymuch!
“The Unit is another part of Mike,” Deena Cortese explained. “He’s like Mike’s unit, it’s kind of unreal. He kind of, like, gives Mike more ‘umph’ to be, like, a jerk.” According to Snooki, “He’s like Mike times 10, so it’s, like, gross, gross, gross. It’s not attractive.”
If you’re hoping for more of The Unit’s U-nique charms he’ll be hanging around in a few more episodes this season. Lucky us!
I hope you’re ready because the second episode of the fifth season airs tonight on MTV (10/9c). Get your cocktails ready!
THOUGHTS ON SNOOKI’S NEW TATTOO? DO YOU THINK JERSEY SHORE IS STAGED? IS THE CAST OVER-EXPOSED?

It’s an all new Jerzday, GTLers! Last night was the season premiere of Jersey Shore which found the gang back at the Shore for Round Three. I have to say, I love the local seasons as compared to Miami and Italy. The drama continues as Mike “The Situation” (or the Saduation) Sorrentino won’t stop with proving true the fact he hooked up with Snooks while she was with Jionni. Without further ado, I’m going to Jersey Shore, b*thches… and I may rip your heads off along the way!
Ciao Florence, s’up Jersey. There’s a montage of the group leaving Italy, although it’s clear they are thoroughly thankful for their experiences abroad. Or not. Fast forward two seconds to a Jersey shuttle ride and the whole cast is riding out to that infamous house that once had an Italian flag spray painted on the garage. What happened to the antics of watching separate housemates hilariously make their way back to the Shore? I guess production costs called for “an altogether now” arrival. Oh, nevermind… they went straight from Italy to Seaside. That’s quite a spring break! One thing hasn’t changed… no one wants to room with creepy oldMike.

Happy Jersday! You know you’re psyched. The GTL-ers are returning to both the TV screens and the shore in the drama-filled fifth season of Jersey Shore!
Oh, it will be a season — of that I am convinced. A season of all the things that made us love them; far from the respectable and classy Italy and back to where they belong roaming the boardwalks of Seaside Heights in search of a drink, a good time and a grenade!
And oh my, are they happy to return to the land of the guidos and gyms and tanning salons. “They didn’t have any fried foods there, no mozzarella sticks or chicken parm,” Sammicomplained to The Chicago Sun Times about the cast’s Italian adventure.
“It was so difficult to get my hair straightener to work out there; the electricity stunk. Driving was terrible. We had a stick-shift Fiat. I didn’t drive the whole time … I couldn’t wait to get back home.”
Well, now they are home and they are ready for action. Ready for more fights betweenSnooki and The Situation, ready for JWoww to be well… wowful, ready for Deana to do something shocking and ready for more tanning sessions than a girl can count. “We hit Jersey hard,” said Pauly D warns.
Of course — there will always be The Situation having situations! “Mike has always been that character — kind of an egomaniac, kind of mischievous, a snake in the grass,” Vinny says of his roommate. “Do I think it’s 100 percent real? No, but that’s the character he has on the show. It’s who he is in that scenario. He’s actually a good kid deep down.”
Watch a clip of the upcoming episode below. It features Vinny and The Situation reuniting with a little sexual chemistry of the dry hump variety. Or something. Only in Jersey, only in Jersey…
Jersey Shore Season 5 premieres tonight at 9/10c on MTV.

Well, it’s official part of the Jersey Shore cast is going their separate ways — at least temporarily! Pauly D is getting his own show set to air this spring on MTV!
DJ Pauly D has just wrapped filming for a new reality show and fans can look for it on the network “very soon!” No word yet on what the concept of Pauly’s new show is, but hopefully it will focus a little more on his DJ-ing! “The show is done being filmed,” a source tells HollywoodLife. “Pauly is really excited for the spinoff — he wants to be a part of the Jersey Shore franchise until he’s a senior citizen.”
In other Seaside Heights news Snooki has officially reached her goal weight of 98lbs! The pint-sized guidette has become even more pint-sized as she recently Tweeted that she is now the same weight as she was in high school. Snooki tells fans she has been working out hardcore to achieve her goal and can’t wait to tone up.
The newly svelte Snooks has been posting a plethora of photos on Twitter advertising her new teeny tiny frame and I have to say she looks fantastic! Some of Snooki’s new Twitter pics are below.
Snooki warned Jersey Shore fans that they won’t be seeing her new body on the upcoming season. “Bcuz I was still heavy wen we filmed in July&tats wat ur gonna see Jan 5th. I dont give a shit tho, i feel great now & thats all that”
In the past, Snooki has admitted to struggling with an eating disorder so hopefully she is losing weight healthily. Despite her new healthy lifestyle and physique, it doesn’t seem like Snooki has given up the booze that made her famous. In several of her TwitPics she’s seen holding a glass of libations!
Snooki seems much happier these days and things with her boyfriend Jionni LaValle are apparently going very well based on her Twitter action! Snooki recently wrote, “Had an amazing Christmas with jionni’s family! Love my future husband ;)”

Uh oh Jersey Shore, fans could the fifth season be their last? For the guidos and guidettes of Seaside Heights it seems being the drunken party animals embarrassing themselves on television has grown old now that they’ve had a taste of fame and fortune!
HollywoodLife reports that according to a source close to the show the cast members are over it! “The cast just isn’t as close as they once were,” the source reveals. “They are all pursuing their own projects, clothing lines, perfume lines and several of them want their own spinoffs. There’s a lot of competition and they all feel like they’re famous enough in their own rights to continue on without the show.”
“Pauly Dhas been trying to secure his own reality show for a while,” a different source explains. “Mike [The Situation] wants his own show but no one really wants to go forward with it and Snooki and JWoww were trying to get their own show.”
JWoww has already confirmed she is filming a spinoff with BFF Snooki and is hopeful the plot will include them going on a road trip.
Jersey Shore’s Fifth Season airs on January 5th on MTV.
WOULD YOU WATCH ANY OF THE JERSEY SHORE CAST IN THEIR OWN SPINOFF OR SHOULD THE CAST STAY TOGETHER?
Jersday will soon be back for all you Jersey Shore lovers! Also back? Seaside Heights as the Guids return to their roots on the infamous Jersey Shore. <fist pump>! Snooki is calling it “the best time of my life.” I’m calling it ca-ca-ca-caraaazeee! Oh and bloody and boozey and bronzey.
In the fifth season the entire cast returns and things get even more risqué as the sneak peak features a drunken and delushous Snooki taking a pee someplace that’s usually reserved for the family pet. Vinny Guadagnino apparently has enough as he vacates the house. “This is real. This is a reality right here. Vinny’s out of here,” Pauly D declares. The trailer promises many drunken nights, many bar fights, many pranks, many grenades and much ado about everything. Oh, and The Situation is bleeding.
The Situation and Snooki will continue to go at it, and this time Mike is also targeting the pouflette’s then boyfriend Jionni LaValle and promising to disclose a secret. Uh oh! Deena Cortese swears that the cast is more like “brothers and sisters” and the bickering never lasts long. “But you’ll see, we had a lot of fun in Jersey; we had so much fun. We were home, we were comfortable.”
“We’re back in our habitat and I’m ready to tear the speakers off this joint,” The Situation promises. Oh, you know you can’t wait! Check out the sneak peak below!
Jersey Shore premieres Thursday, January 5, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Get your cocktails ready!

Those wild and crazy kids of the Jersey Shoreare already stirring up some controversy in Italy though they have yet to arrive for the filming of their 4th season.
See while MTV confirmed earlier this year that season four of the super mega hit show will be filmed in Italy, the show had yet to actually air in the country. That all changed this week when the show made its debut on Italian television, and let’s just say the Italians are no fans. In fact, the cast is now on the receiving end of some major backlash.
“They embody the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized,” wrote columnist Roberto Del Bove in Rome newspaper New Notzie.
It only gets worse as a preview of the show posted on an MTV Italia website drew some nastier comments.”When I see this, I wonder whether [Osama] Bin Laden had a point,” lamented one poster, going a bit overboard perhaps.
“Slicked hair, exaggerated narcissism, boundless love for the family and outlandish eccentricity” is what was written about the show in another popular Rome newspaper, Corriere della Sera.
The Italians might be happy to know that only part of the fourth season will be filmed in Italy. This isn’t the first time the Jersey Shore clan has been criticized for their shenanigans as the show also drew major ire from Italian-American groups during their first season, leading to some boycotts by advertisers.
Love them or hate them, the show is definitely here to stay as the season 3 finale last week drew record ratings for MTV, with over 7.6 million viewers tuning in.
Speaking of season 4, RadarOnline is now reporting that there is a contract dispute brewing with some of the cast members. Apparently, cast members “Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and Pauly D have not finalized their contracts because they can’t agree on the amount.”
“As of last week Deena hadn’t signed her contract either but Ronnie, Sammi, and Vinny were done,” reveals a source, um does Deena not realize she’s very expendable?. “Time is short, everyone is getting concerned because they’re supposed to leave for Italy soon, I just hope they can settle it,” the source adds.
The cast also went through contract disputes last year as they went on a short strike before season three; eventually negotiating a 200% raise from $10,000 to $30,000 per episode.
And finally, the reunion show airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c. We will revisit the top moments of the show with the cast and also find out why Sammi and Ronnie broke up again for the 2000th time back in January.
TELL US – THE ITALIANS, THEY HAVE A POINT NO? PLUS THOUGHTS ON THE REUNION SHOW?
