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?
It’s like Christmas, Jersey Shore style with two new episodes airing within 72 hours of one another. And of course, MTV needs to capitalize on the VMAs by finishing the Rawn/Mike smackdown right before the awards show airs. Brilliant.
The show begins with Sammi stupidly placing herself between a roided Rawn and a flipping out crazy insane Situation. Mike loses it and slams his head into the concrete wall before crumbling to the ground. Intelligence just abounds on this show. JWoww attempts to get some sort of reaction from a dazed and confused Mike, while the ever gentlemanly Rawn mocks Sammi’s tears and blames her for not telling him about Mike’s gossip sooner. “Stawp Rawn!” Poor Sammi is able to get out the way before being manhandled by her sensitive (ex) boyfriend.

Jersey Shore’s “Twinning” aired last night with Mike winning twins. He loses one to Deena while losing his friendship with Snooks. Rawn and Sam make-up, while Vinny and Pauly, as always, entertain the masses.
The episode starts out with Florida chick trying to find her clothes while the Situation tries to find her a cab. Mike gets distracted on his way to the phone and feels the need to nap on the patio furniture where he proceeds to get attacked by a pigeon. Not once, but twice. How can you not believe in karma?
Ronnie can’t believe that after three seasons of this mess, he is just now realizing how alike he and Snooki are. They are both DTWO (down to work out), DTD (down to drink), DTP (down to party), and DTHAGT (down to have a good time)…I assume that DTF is implied, although hopefully not with each other. Neither are DTRAM (down to read a map) so when they can’t find the gym, the pair opts for cocktails at a local bistro. Snooki seems to be the only one in the house who hope Rawn and Sam reconcile because the drama Snooks brings pales in comparison to their relationship.

While the popularity of MTV’s mega hit showJersey Shore continues to soar, there is one clothing company that would like nothing to do with the show.
Evidently Abercrombie and Fitch is NOT a fan of The Situation, 29, and is now in fact offering him alongside his castmates a “substantial” amount of cash to never sport their gear again.
“We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino’s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image,” the company said in a press release on Tuesday. “We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans.”
The statement continued, “We have therefore offered a substantial payment to Michael ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino and the producers of MTV’s The Jersey Shore to have the character wear an alternate brand. We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response.”
Ouch! What is a bit odd is that the company reportedly capitlized on The Situation’s popularity last year by releasing a “Fitchuation” t-shirt.
And it turns out The Sitch is not the only reality star to turn off a clothing company. The Starcasm blog reportsTeen Momstar Gary Shirley also received a request from another clothing company –Aeropostale — days ago asking him to stop wearing their gear as well.
Gary tweeted, “I’m no longer allowed to wear Aero although I did stop wearing it a while ago. They called and banned it. Was a very sad day for me 🙁 RIP..” He later added, “Aero reached out and asked to either blur or not wear at all…” Surely that has to hurt.

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.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON SNOOKI WANTING TO DO DWTS & MAKING GUIDO BABIES? PLUS THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW & TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
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.
