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.

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?
