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?
In response to The Situation‘s lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch, the company apparently believes they’ve done nothing wrong and The Situation has no grounds to sue them after they supposedly banned him from wearing their clothes and then referenced his famous phrases on two of their t-shirts! The company is accusing The Situation of having both a baseless lawsuit and of being unable to take a joke. Seriously.
The Situation filed a lawsuit against the company for knocking off slogans he claims he trademarked. The trademarks in question G.T.L and The Situation, of course!
Abercrombie & Fitch now denies the Jersey Shore star has any grounds to sue them “because he doesn’t technically own the trademarks in question… he only applied for them.” According to TMZ, A&F claims The Situation’s application for Gym Tan Laundry has been “suspended” because MTV “already owns ‘Gym Tanning Laundry,’ and the US Patent & Trademark Office thinks they’re too similar.” Oh my…
Despite the trademark issues, Abercrombie also believes that producing the shirts in question is actually protected under a law that “allows parody as part of free speech.” Not only that they were meant to be a joke and The Situation should get a sense of humor! The Situation has yet to comment on Abercrombie’s claims.
In other Jersey Shore news Snooki has been on a diet! And girl looks good! Revealing her new bikini body on Twitter, Snooki has been dieting and exercising diligently — and it has paid off. “So happy I’m at my goal weight I was when I was in high school! Feelin fit is amazing and can’t wait to tone up hardcore,” Snooki tweeted. And to complete her total transformation, Snooki asked Santa for a pair of “knockers” like JWoww‘s! Photos of a bikini clad Snooki are below.

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!
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PROMO? ARE YOU EXCITED OR ARE YOU OVER THE SAME OLD DRAMA WITH THE CAST?

Is he or isn’t he? Broke, that is because a new report is stating that Mike “The Situation” Sorentino has blown millions of dollars ($10 million to be exact) living the lavish lifestyle of an A-List celeb and now has nothing left!
And that lawsuit The Situation recently filed against clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch for approximately $4 million in royalties and damages? It’s possibly because he needs the money!
In Touch Weekly is reporting that theJersey Shore star’s spending habits rival none other than Kate Gosselin’s – except he doesn’t appear to use coupons. Despite netting over $5M in revenue in 2010 alone from “appearance fees, endorsement deals with Vitaminwater and Reebok, his own fitness video, a “GTL’ app, a rap song and a book deal”, a former friend of The Situation is reporting that he has blown all of it!
So what has he been spending on? Luxury cars, several Rolex watches and diamond chains, plus not one but TWO Bentleys! Even worse, The Situation, whose “big head and cruel lies have left him without a friend in the world” is now paying his brother Marc and several former friends to follow him around constantly acting like his entourage! “He’s so cocky, he thinks he can spend like an A-lister,” the former buddy explains.
“He has nothing left,” the source reveals. “He won’t stop spending money.” And the constant income stream may be drying up soon as the mag suspects The Situation’s popularity is “plummeting.” “No one is paying him for appearances anymore,” the friend continues. Even worse for The Situation, the spin-off show he has in the works isn’t taking off! “Forget his Ferrari, he’ll be back in a crappy car before he knows it,” his former friend concludes. This sounds a bit like sour grapes to me…
Well, The Situation is calling all of these allegations preposterous. Speaking to In Touch, he claims it’s all lies! “I haven’t wasted my money,” he insists.
“I know that there’s a beginning and an end to everything. I’m very conscious of that, so I save my money,” he explains. “Any of those crazy gifts that I have that people hear about — the Ferraris and Lambos and all that I have — those things were either gifted or came from an endorsement.”
As for the speculation that he won’t be earning big in the future– nonsense! The Corporation (yes, The Situation has his own company apparently) has a lot of big deals in the works! “I’m looking towards the long-term and the future; I do own percentages of most of the companies I’m a part of,” Mike describes. “My vodka line, Devotion Vodka, the first protein-infused vodka, is doing awesome. I have a tuxedo line with FLOW Formal, and there should be a Situation ringtone coming out soon.”
In other Jersey Shore news poor cheating Ronnie Ortiz-Magro still pines for his ex-Sammi Giancola following their latest break up! My how the tables have turned! Sources report to HollywoodLife that Ronnie was seen in a club “especially drunk but was visibly depressed.”
“He had tons of girls trying to get all over him but he refused all advances and everyone was saying that he missed Sammi,” the source recounts. “He refused to hook up with anyone!” Did someone call the paramedics?
Things are very different for Sammi, who doesn’t seem to miss Ronnie at all! “She’s doing great! She’s really focused on herself and her career outside of Jersey Shore,” a different insider explains. “She has a new fragrance coming out and a men’s fragrance. She’s doing her right now and staying out of the drama.” Oh, please let this be the official, official end of Ronnie and Sammi!

THOUGHTS ON THE SITUATIONS FINANCIAL SITUATION? DO YOU THINK HE IS BROKE OR SMARTER THAN HE LOOKS? DO YOU BELIEVE RONNIE AND SAMMI ARE DONE FOR GOOD THIS TIME?
Well, Abercrombie & Fitch you can’t have it both ways! You’re either with The Situation or you’re against him!
A few months back Abercrombie & Fitch publicly offered the GTL-lovin’ Situation money to stop wearing their clothes; issuing a press release claiming his affiliation with the company was bad for business and could do “significant damage” to their brand after Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was photographed wearing it while filming Jersey Shore.
Then, the company followed up by creating t-shirts that clearly infringed on the skankerific star’s trademarks! Yes – Abercrombie & Fitch began selling shirts on their website emblazoned with “The Fitchuation” and GTL-You Know The Deal” Hmmm… that is oddly similar; shockingly so – I wonder where on earth they got the idea for “The Fitchuation”? Photos of the t-shirts in question are below. Now the shunned Situation is fighting back in court!
The Situation is asserting that despite Abercrombie advertising that he was offered a substantial amount dough if he gave up the brand, he was never actually offered that money at all and he is accusing the company of using him as a “marketing ploy” in the hopes to “draw attention to Abercrombie’s fashion line.”
And from now on, GTL officially stands for Gym, Tan, Lawsuit because The Situation is suing the company for violating his “trademarked slogans without permission,” claiming the t-shirts clearly infringe on his “trademarked Jersey Shore references.” Which, after all, is the nonsense that made him famous!
The lawsuit filed in Federal Court in Florida this Tuesday alleges Abercrombie “embarked on a worldwide advertising campaign using Sorrentino’s name, image and likeness to create brand awareness for its products by falsely claiming that [the company] had offered money to Sorrentino if he would stop wearing Defendant’s goods.”
Through his lawyers, The Situation contends that as a result of A&F’s “publicity campaign” they “profited off the use of a false affiliation with Sorrentino.” The suit also proclaims the retailer “wrongly used Sorrentino’s name, image and likeness for advertising purposes in violation of applicable law.” Oops — publicity stunt gone wrong A&F!
As a result of Abercrombie & Fitches’ blatant copying remarkably coincidental borrowing effort, The Situation is asking for a trial by jury, $1M in royalty payments and $3M in damages. Hey – according to Snooki he needs the money…

THOUGHTS ON THE SITUATIONS SITUATION? DOES HE HAVE A RIGHT TO SUE? CAN YOU BELIEVE ABERCROMBIE THOUGHT THEY WOULD GET AWAY WITH THIS?!
Jersey Shore’s pint-sized Guidette, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, sat down with GQ for what she called her “first interview ever” and talked the girl behind the poof, changing Jersey Shore and how she wishes MTV would portray the cast members as the “intelligent” people they really are.
Apparently, Ms. Snookers went to college! Oh and in case you’re wondering if the New York Times best selling author is a reader – she’s not. “I don’t read,” she said. “I just used the CliffsNotes, books were too long.”
Snooki is well aware of the public’s perception of her and the cast mates, explaining “they just think that we’re stupid, that we have no education, and all we do is drink, have sex.” But she wants everyone to know she’s actually very smart! “I went to college,” where she studied Veterinary Technology! Yes – Snooki can actually assist in operating on animals and, yes, she wore leopard print scrubs! In fact, she would love to return to school and get her Vet Tech license.
Snooki also revealed she is bothered by MTV’s portrayal of the cast of Jersey Shore and how it pretty much ruined her image by making her look trashy, trampy, and totally vapid and if she were in charge things would go very differently. “I wouldn’t show as much drinking and partying. I would show more of us chilling out and having a good time — which they don’t show,” she laments. “We don’t even drink those nights, but we laugh all night. They don’t show anything but us drinking and hooking up.”
As for what motivates MTV to only show the negative (re: trashy) behaviors of the cast, Snooki thinks it’s all about the Benjamins! “Maybe because of the success of the show, they think that if they don’t show us drinking and hooking up then it wouldn’t stay successful,” she muses. “I think that if they showed the sober side of us people would like it even more and it’d even change people’s minds about us.”
Whatever the perception of the show, Snooki thinks it’s absurd when people get upset about the words “Guido” and “Guidette”. Asked about some people comparing the terms to the N-word, Snooki calls those claims “ridiculous” and explains that while the N-word is “seriously offensive”, Guido is not. “’Guido’ is used as a lifestyle — like being a prep, skater, gothic. We’re Guidos. Plus, I’m not even Italian!”
Snooki rebuffs accusations that Jersey Shore has given her city and state a bad reputation. “They need to get over it,” she snaps. “We’re not representing Jersey.” New Jersey Governor Chris Christie unfortunately disagrees and was so disappointed with Jersey Shore he denied MTV’s tax credit, which is doled out to encourage filming in the state. Mr. Christie sent a letter to the network stating he was “duty-bound to ensure that taxpayers are not footing a $420,000 bill for a project which does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens.”
Making it clear that success – and the money that comes with it – hasn’t gone to her head, Snooki revealed that her outfit cost “like 50 bucks!” The reality star reportedly made $750,000 in the last year alone, but is very conservative with her money! “I save it,” she insists. “Jersey Shore is going to end soon. I’m not going to spend money like Mike [The Situation]. He’s already broke!” Yikes!
As for what’s next for Snooki, theDonald Trump fan (who even said he would get her vote for the GOP presidential nod) is expanding her brand! “I’m actually trying to get a clothing line together. I have perfume and tanning lotion, eyelashes, nail polish…” She also has a new novel, Gorilla Nation, coming soon! Furthermore, Snooki is making a cameo in two movies and hopes to land a guest spot on The Office!

THOUGHTS ON SNOOKI’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE THE CAST OF JERSEY SHORE IS INTELLIGENT AND MISREPRESENTED BY MTV? DO YOU THINK THEIR BEHAVIOR ADDS TO THAT MISCONCEPTION? ARE YOU SURPRISED SNOOKI IS GOOD WITH MONEY?
They’re back! Fresh off the cast’s European excursion to Florence, Italy — MTV has announced it will be kicking off the new year with an all new season of Jersey Shore!
Yes, America’s favorite drunken hotmesses housemates will return to Seaside Heights, NJ, when season five of the MTV hit series premieres on Thursday, January 5, 2012 (10/9c).
Back on their home turf and excited to be in their natural habitat, “the cast hits the ground running to get their “G.T.L” regimen back on schedule while also dealing with their evolving group dynamic amidst the tensions and hookup rumors left over from their time in Florence.”
To mark the special occasion, MTV also released a preview clip for the new season which features DJ Pauly D recovering from a tanning accident after burning his face when trying to get his skin tanned. He was trying to correct the paleness he suffered while in Italy. The rest of the cast is also shown as they prepare to hit their favorite club Karma.
As we reported, the cast began filming season 5 immediately following their return from filming season 4 in Italy. They did not get a break which in turn led to some more drama, such as Vinny Guadagninoquitting the show, only to return days later.
It was a classic case of he-said she-said on this season of the Jersey Shore as Mike The Situation accused Snookiof hooking up with him and cheating on her boyfriend.
During earlier episodes this season, Mike, 29, dropped the bomb when he also revealed he had developed feelings for the Snooks, 23. The Snooks however unconvincingly protested too much flew into a rage and denied Mike’s claims. Snooki also informed her beau Jionni LaVelle of Mike’s claims though she still maintained she never cheated.
Fast forward to today and UsWeekly is reporting Snooki’s castmates, including her BFF JWoww, no longer believe her! The report states they actually believe Mike’s version of events over hers.
The reunion for season 4 was taped on August 31, and the hook-up was a huge topic. “When the hookup was brought up during the reunion show, nobody sided with her,” a witness at the taping revealed. “Everyone believed Mike!” added the source.
A report by Star magazine confirms UsWeekly’s report stating that though the cast was upset with Mike at the beginning of the reunion taping in Los Angeles, by the end of the show, they were believing his claims “because Snooki was just out of control, denying it too much.”
The set insider adds that Snooki also showed up drunk to the reunion (Seriously, this girl has a drinking problem no?) and continued drinking through out. “It was only 11 a.m., and she was a mess!” the insider reveals. “She was slurring her words and struggling to keep her head up straight. There was no doubt she was drunk.”
Producers reportedly struggled to keep the Snooks in check backstage. Yikes.
A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THESE REPORTS? DO YOU BELIEVE SNOOKI HOOKED UP WITH MIKE? DO YOU THINK SHE HAS A DRINKING PROBLEM?
