Although the producers have to use a few reality fillers, like Kim K’s younger brother Rob Kardashian, TMZ is reporting that some actual celebrities will be competing in the upcoming season. Rapper, actress, and make-up spokesmodel Queen Latifah will be joining the growing cast, as well as Blue Collar’sKelly KapowskiTiffani Thiessen. Thiessen’s rep is, of course, denying this rumor…but isn’t that what they all do?
Also confirmed for the new season and a chance at the disco ball trophy is everyone’s favorite Oompa loompa, Snooki fromJersey Shore. Her rep as well had previously said the pickle lover would be a no-go. No word yet on whether she’ll be dancing in her furry Chewbacca boots or beaten up bunny slippers.
THOUGHTS ON THE CAST SO FAR? WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ON NEXT SEASON’S DWTS?
UPDATE - According to a new report by UsWeekly, Queen Latifah is NOT signed on to do the show. A rep for the actress states she is not doing the show while an insider adds that “there were never any talks” between the network and Queen Latifah. Yikes. Did TMZ get it wrong? Only time will tell.
Last night’s Jersey Shore was everything it should be and more. Oh so much more. There was a lot of cursing, a lot of falling, and a lot of inappropriate sausage references. Viva Italia and God bless the Shore.
Episode two of the new season, starts off where else? In the clerb. With the roommates watching, Deena lays one on Pauly D, and there is way more tongue than I need to see. She eats off his bottom lip and reveals her plans to have him as a cuddle buddy that night in hopes of gaining his Italian sausage later in the trip. Is it weird that when that time finally comes, I hope Pauly D comes bounding into the smush room singing “Saus-sege is heeya!” A girl can dream, right? Snooki, on the other hand, isn’t liking the Situation she’s in…you know, the one where the Situation keeps groping her.

And as it turns out, the Snooks is actually interested in putting on her dancing shoes! “I didn’t get asked [to be on 'Dancing'], but if I do, dude, I’m bringing the fist pump to the floor,” Snooki told Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday. She added, “If they ask me I’ll do it!”
Meanwhile, Snooki, 23, appeared on Good Morning America yesterday during which she actually talked marriage and making “guido babies” with her beauJionni LaValle.
“I’ve calmed down already. I don’t hook up anymore,” the Snooks told GMA. “I’ll always be this crazy, fun person, but when it’s time to get married, I’m going to be an amazing wife.”
“Jionni is a great guy so I’m so down to making Guido babies with him,” Snooki stated though adding the guido babies will have to wait a bit. “I’m only 23, but eventually I would love to get married.”
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the Jersey Shore which has castmates JWoww and Sammi butting heads. In the preview below, Ronnie and Sammi’s volatile relationship appears to take a toll on their roommates while in Italy.
In the clip, Vinnymakes it clear he is over Sammi’s erratic behavior when around her then ex-boyfriend Ronnie during a drunken night out. “I’m done with him and you being drunk,” Vinny tells Sammi. “When Ronnie and Sammi are drunk, they turn into different people and there’s no getting through to them,” he later states in the clip.
JWoww then chimes in, agreeing with Vinny. “This needs to stop! You’re not in high school and you need to grow up and find a happy medium,” snaps JWoww (Preach it sister!). Sammi however gets defensive. “I have feelings for Ron and I always will,” she angrily tells the gang. “It’s hard living with your ex-boyfriend and going out. I’m dealing with it the best I can, and I feel like I’ve been doing pretty f–king good!”
The preview clip is below! And as we reported Sammie and Ronnie did indeed get back together in Italy, and it appears they are still going strong today… for the time being.

Jersey Shore in all its trashy glory is returning; so hold onto your pouf and get ready to move to Florence, Italy for the Season 4 Premiere!
So what can you expect from this season’s Italian adventure? According to Executive Producer, SallyAnn Salsano: “The dynamic is supercrazy and explosive and yet more caring.” SallyAnn also relays being thousands of miles away from real friends and family, the cast had to rely on each other for support instead of bickering constantly!
While one might expect the Guidos and Guidettes to take to Italy like ducks to water, apparently the cast members had a difficult time adjusting to the lack of available facilities, i.e. GTL: We rarely made it to the gym,” says Vinny. “That’s unheard of for us. But it’s not really a big thing there. And these little weird streets that were built in the 1000s… going to the laundromat, you have to haul your luggage through friggin’ Italian villages. That made us stop doing certain things in our routine.”
The Guidettes also had some difficulty with Italian architecture, as apparently stripper shoes are not compatible with cobblestones, explains Sammi: The worst thing was the cobblestone roads and walking in heels. I had to buy a lot of flats, which I would probably never wear in Jersey.”
Despite the difficult surroundings, the cast still made sure to bring the drama to the max! And while no one is revealing the biggest conflict – apparently the Guidos were the source of most of the conflicts, without Angelina there to annoy JWoww, who reveals: “They were doing the catfighting.” Pauly D concurs: “You’ll be surprised to see the drama that sparks this year.”
There was one routine they didn’t have to give up, besides fighting: partying! “The guys, we went hard in Italy. There were a lot of entertaining nights,” relays Ronnie.
“Jersey girls still found us,” says Pauly D. And lucky for them “American college students are far easier to get home at night than Italian girls,” says Salsano. Well, she has a job I certainly don’t envy!
In other Jersey Shore news, it appears filming for Season 5, the last and final season, has already wrapped! Wow – these Guids move fast in more ways than one! To celebrate the end of an era, Snooki got her nose pierced! A picture of the pierced Snooki is below!
The cast also bid farewell to the very brave Shore Store, which was ballsy enough to employ them during their time on the Jersey Shore. After bidding farewell, The Guidettes decided to hang out on the roof one final time. I wonder what they’ll all be up to next?
Jersey Shore premieres Thursday, 8/4 at 10/9c on MTV. A preview of the upcoming season is below!
With less than a week until the season 4 premiere, theJersey Shore cast is starting to do some press to promote the show while also filming season 5 at the same time.
In a new interview with Extra, Snookidiscusses her car crash in Florence, Italy which ultimately led to her license being suspended. “The brakes weren’t really working in our Fiat. They were, like, old. I tried to use the brakes and they didn’t work,” said Snooki of the fender bender. “So to avoid the cops, I ran right into a wall so I didn’t hurt anybody.”
Snooki adds that the cast stayed close to home following the crash. “The only time we [drove was] to the gym, so after that nobody went to the gym — we’d just walk around,” she tells Extra.
Moving on to the on-again off-again poster couple Ronnieand Sammi. As we reported weeks ago, the two once again got back together during filming in Italy.
And surprisingly, they are still going strong today though something tells us they’ve probably had 10 breakups between then and now. While talking to Extra, Sammi admits they are indeed “back together,” adding they are now “moving forward each day in the right direction.” Uh uh. When Ronnie is asked if he thinks fans want to see them back together, he answered – “I think fans want to see us together but not fighting. They want to see us together and happy.” Something tells us fans would rather not see them together at all since that always equals fighting.
In the same interview, Vinnyreveals we will have to wait and see if he got to meet his family in Italy. AndThe Situation’s favorite Italian phrase? It translates into “let’s go back to the house” of course.
The Italian season 4 of Jersey Shore premieres August 4 on MTV at 10/9c.
Multiple sources confirm to TMZ that Rob, 24, is officially on board despite concerns about the DWTS schedule conflicting with his older sister Kim Kardashian‘s big mediawhore wedding in August.
Rob has reportedly signed the dotted line for the new season which will premiere September 19. Rob won’t be the first Kardashian to compete on the show as Kimmie made it all the way to week 3 back in 2008.
Oddly enough, TMZ reported last week that the DWTS producers were working hard this season to get some real A-listers on the show, even changing their policy to a no minimum rehearsal requirement.
And it appears Jersey Shore’sSnooki might be a no go despite the report that she was also negotiating to appear on the show. Her manager issued a non-denial denial to the Rumor Fix simply stating “Not true” when asked about the DWTS rumors.
As for Rob, no word yet on what exactly makes him a “star.”
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ROB BEING CAST ON THE SHOW? IS HE EVEN Z-LIST?
It’s that time again folks! As we near the 13th season premiere of Dancing With The Stars, the casting rumors have began!
According to the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine, being considered for the upcoming season are reality stars Snooki and Rob Kardashian, alongside talented celebrity/singer/actress Christina Milian.
Sources reveal that Jersey Shore star Snooki, 23, is in talks to do the show! In addition to the Snooks, Kim Kardashian’s little brother Rob, 24, is also in discussions with the network. “Rob is such a low-key guy, so it would be interesting to see if he’d come out of his shell,” Kris Jenner a source says. Rob would be following in the footsteps of his sister Kimmie who did the show back in 2008 and was voted off during week 3.
As for R&B singer Christina, 29, a source says, “She’s a possibility!” Also a possibility? Boxer Mike Tyson, 45, “is being considered,” according to a second insider. Ai ya ya. Should be an interesting season!
The new season of DWTS is set to premiere September 19 on ABC.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE CASTING RUMORS? WHICH OF THESE “STARS” WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE?
With less than a month until the August 4 premiere, MTV has released the official season 4 cast photo of the Jersey Shore cast!
In the above shot, the cast is all glammed-up for a late-night run through the streets of Florence, Italy where they filmed the fourth season from May to June.
As reported, the cast only got a one week break before they began filming the fifth season back in Seaside Heights, New Jersey late last month. The new season will debut Aug. 4 on MTV at 10/9c.
In other Shore news, after almost losing two cast members in a span of one week, TMZ is now reporting MTV has laid down the law!
According to TMZ, MTV has now instituted a zero tolerance policy for future cast runaways. Sources close to production reveal the network is very serious this time stating that if another cast member tries to walk off the show… that person will be fired, and the remainder of his or her contract will be terminated. No exceptions.
This is apparently a power play by the network to reassert some authority after two cast members nearly bolted in the same week. Vinny Guadagnino actually left the show for a week after complaining of being “burned out” only to return a week later. While Vinny was gone, The Situation also threatened to quit the show but returned hours later.
