They’re baaaaack! MTV has now released the trailer for the second season of Jersey Shore, and judging from the look of things, there will be no second season jinx!
In the 2 minute clip, we get to see The Situation, Pauly D, Ronnie and Vinny creeping on the girls in Miami Beach, while the ladies,Sammi, Snooki, JWoww and even Angelina can be seen getting into fights and arguments with one another.
So are Sammi and Ronnie together again? Will The Situation and Pauly D be able to avoid grenades this go around? Is Snooki still snookin for love? Will Angelina bring the drama once more?
All these questions will be answered when the show premieres Thursday, July 29 on MTV.
Multiple media outlets are reporting DJ Pauly D has several sex tapes floating around. Popcrunch reports the amateur tapes are said to be with a Canadian model he met this year while doing promotion for the first season of the MTV hit show.
“It is being revealed that they filmed a few sex videos while together – Our insiders say the girl in question has no intent on selling the recordings… But we all know eventually they will come out!!,” adds the ZackTaylor blog.
The magazine cover photo, which hit stands this week under the banner “Queer Issue” and above the headline “The Guido Ideal” — a story about “gay Jersey guidos on the down-low,” has led to some whispers and questions about the guys’ sexuality, but not so fast reports the NYPost.
The Post is reporting the guys were not aware what they were posing for and had no idea they were being photographed for the Queer cover. A source from the mag also adds, “The paper’s not saying the cover boys are gay, just that that they’re hot.”
The guys however seem to be good sports about the cover and The Situation was even quoted in the past as saying: “I’ll be honest, I like the attention [from gay men]. I’m flattered if there are guys with different preferences that have crushes on me.”
While the all new second season of MTV’s Jersey Shoredoesn’t premiere until July 29th, MTV has released a sneak peak of what is to come in the upcoming season.
The 13 minute clip shows the eight cast members as they prepare to leave for Miami Beach, where the second season was taped. The show’s break out star Snookiintroduces us to her new boyfriend, Emilio Masella, whom she refers to as her “amazing gorilla juicehead.” And in case you’re wondering, the two have since broken up. Snooki also shares that she doesn’t tan as much anymore because President Obama implemented a 10% tax on tanning.
We also see Sammi as she prepares to leave for Miami. Sammi reveals she is no longer with Ronnie but doesn’t know what will happen in the house. Vinny also lets us in that his main focus this season is to hook up with “pretty quality girls.”
The sneak peek is below -
Meanwhile in other Shore news, the show’s creator, Sallyann Salsano, made headlines last week when she shared that she is so worried about the cast members contracting STDs that she hands out herpes medication “like M&Ms.”
“We hand it out like M&Ms! ‘Hey kids, it’s time for Valtrex!’ It’s like a herpes nest. They’re all in there mixing it up,” Salsano said.
Hollyscoop was able to interview the cast during a recent event and they appeared puzzled by Salsano’s comments. “Really? I did not even hear that. What set was this? I wasn’t passed out anything. What story was that?” The Situation said.
Added Sammi, “No, I have no idea anything about that. That is weird. I don’t know why she would say anything about that.”
TELL US – DID YOU WATCH THE FIRST SEASON? WILL YOU BE TUNING IN FOR THE SECOND SEASON?
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.”
“I’m addicted,” Zarin told E! News last night at the Human Rights Campaign’s Sundance Film Festival party. Jill goes on to state the obvious by saying, “If there wasn’t all that press about how we shouldn’t watch it, I probably wouldn’t have.”
Jill has also found her favorite cast member in Mike The Situation, and her reason for liking Mike is a bit humorous. “The Situation reminds of Bethenny [Frankel] with the one-liners. It’s amazing; he comes up with these one-liners and sayings just like Bethenny.”
And speaking of Bethenny, what does Jill have to say about those pesky rumors and reports that the two have become fast enemies…
“It was a really rough four months for me, probably the roughest four months of my life emotionally,” Jill says about the time she spent filming the new season of the Real Housewives.
Jill doesn’t get any more specific about her beef with Bethenny as the housewives aren’t allowed to get into specifics about any of the drama (or anything else about the show) until the season premiere, but Jill did say, “I’m scared. The drama, the meanness and the cattiness…There were a lot of ups and downs.”
According to reports, things have gotten bad to the point that Jill might not be attending Bethenny’s upcoming wedding.
From what I’ve heard and read, things are were very ugly between Jill and Bethenny. Definitely can’t wait for the 3rd season to premier!
The Jersey Shore cast might be a lot of things but when it comes to their money, the cast is proving to be much smarter than most would give them credit for.
TMZ is reporting that the entire cast has rejected an offer from MTV to do a second season. Sources connected with the negotiation say MTV offered Snooki, Pauly D, “The Situation” and the others each a $10,000 signing bonus and promised to pay them $5,000 per episode to do a season two of the hit show.
The cast however rejected the offer and made it clear that they were negotiating “Friends” style … meaning everyone would get the same amount and it had to be a lot higher than MTV’s offer.
The sources reveal MTV came back and doubled the offer to $10,000 an episode. So far, the cast has yet to respond to the new offer.
Some of the cast members of The Hills are getting paid a whooping $100,000 per episode, which should give the Jersey Shore cast some leverage considering their ratings doubles that of the Hills. They averaged over 4.8 million viewers just last week.
An MTV spokesperson would not comment on the negotiations and MTV has yet to officially comment on a season two. TMZ also reports MTV has received thousands of tapes from wanna be Guidos and Guidettes wanting to be on the show.
As much as I like this cast, I’m not sure having them all back for a 2nd season would be a good idea. They have become too famous and I’m guessing the show will become too fake and scripted for a season 2, The Hills anyone? I think it would be better to do a Real World format, and bring back an entirely new cast for a 2nd season.
UPDATE - TMZ is also reporting that MTV has given the cast until the end of Monday (today) to accept the offer, or they will be replaced. This is allegedly a ploy by MTV to try to divide and conquer the cast. Apparently, the cast members who accept the offer will be on the 2nd season, and the ones who don’t will be replaced. We will be sure to keep you updated on this.
TELL US – SHOULD MTV BRING BACK THIS CAST FOR A 2ND SEASON OR CAST SOME NEW PEOPLE?
The finale of MTV’s hit show – Jersey Shore aired last night and many fans are wondering what is next for the cast.
UsWeekly caught up with the cast members who revealed their future plans. As we reported earlier, Snooki claims to be in talks to get her own reality or dating show. She even said she has an offer from VH1.
As for Jenni “J-Woww, she has received a nice offer to pose for playboy. “I got a really good offer from Playboy,” J-Woww said “But I’m going to hold off and see.”
DJ Pauly D is also considering stripping for Playgirl. “I’m just trying to get my head straight right now!” he told Us. (But after Snooki said she’d want to see that issue, Pauly D responded, “If she buys it, I’m gonna do it!”)
Mike “The Situation“ reveals he’s “got an offer to do something for primetime TV… like a sitcom of some sort. I think it may be a sketch comedy, or, like, the real deal. Something that’s really awesome… it’s a big thing!”
As for the show’s couple – Ronnie and Sammi – it seems they might really be done for good this time (they broke up during the reunion show when Ronnie saw some unseen footage of Sammi talking/flirting with The Situation.) TMZ is reporting Ronnie hosted a party last week and was photographed creeping with making out some random girls.
It will be interesting to see how MTV deals with doing a 2nd season, which is sure to come considering 4 million viewers tuned in last week. MTV is said to be considering bringing back this cast for season 2, or bringing in new people similar to the Real World formula.
The Jersey Shorecast is proof that all publicity is good publicity, as the strong and loud criticism from lawmakers and Italian groups has only helped propel the show and it’s cast into being very popular. Plus with the very high ratings, the show will certainly be returning for a 2nd season.
The entire cast of Jersey Shore spent some time in Los Angeles recently, and paid a visit to the Chelsea Lately show during their LA stay. Though Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino clashed on last week’s episode of the shore when he made fun of her “rolls,” the two seem to have now kissed and made up, literally. As previews for tonight’s finale episode show the two hooking up in a hot-tub.
It seems their new found “friendship” might have continued post show when on E!’s Chelsea Lately, host Chelsea Handler asked Snooki and The Situation if they’ve hooked up. “Yeah, yeah, yeah,” he replied. But it’s not a big deal according to Snooki. “It’s not awkward at all,” she said. “If I wanna make out with him right now, I can. It’s not weird.”
The Situation also clarified what “hooking up” means. “On the show, it’s just a kiss,” he said. “But sometimes, on the road, it’s a little more than that. We save the special stuff for on the road,” he jokingly said. When asked if he’s gotten luckier with the ladies since appearing on the show, he smiled. “I like to think [I was popular with women] before the show,” he said. “But after the show, it’s been a Situation.”
The cast also hit up West Hollywood hot spot Voyeur, during which Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio said they partied with Lindsay Lohan and “Lindsay’s mom,” Dina. They were however the most star struck when they met Leonardo DiCaprio.
“It was weird, ‘cuz we were with Kevin Connelly the whole night, and he took us over to his VIP table, and there was someone with a hat pulled down, and it was Leo,” he said. “All of a sudden, he looks up and goes ‘GTL, baby!’ And I was like ‘Yeah!'”
“GTL” is Jersey Shore-slang for “Gym, tan, laundry.”
There are also talks of Snooki, the break out star of the show, getting her own reality show. According to Snooki, she has received numerous offers to have her own reality or dating show.
“Definitely there is no set thing, but it has been talked about,” Snooki told UsMagazine. “I got offers from VH1 and other reality networks,” said Snooki, 21.
