Jersey Shore cast is going to Italy – sorry Italians!

So the Jersey Shore cast is headed to Italy to film for next season, where they’ll drink, fight, screw and spray tan their way under the skin of an entirely new country. I would apologize to the Italians, but it wouldn’t be sincere at all. It’s not analogous to getting rid of a barge full of garbage, although that’s the first thing that comes to mind. This news brings the initial lift of realizing that your annoying neighbors will be going on an extended vacation. I guess the break between Jersey Shore seasons does the same thing, without the international relations issues.

The entire “Jersey Shore” cast is finally getting THE BOOT — because we’re told the plan is to shoot Season 4 in Italy!

Sources connected to the show tell us they will be scouting locations in Italy — similar to the way they did it in Miami — to find the right locale.

One source connected with the show says they’ve already lined up some of Vinny’s Italian relatives to host the “Jersey” crew for an authentic Guadagnino dinner.

And we’re told … two months ago execs began working on getting visas for the cast and crew.

Of course, the whole thing is contingent on whether the Italian government lets them in the country!!

UPDATE: MTV just confirmed our story … Italy’s the place! Arrivederci!

In response, an Italian-American advocacy group compared Jersey Shore to a freak show and said that this move will hurt all Americans and “make us look like buffoons and bimbos.”

There are reports that castmember Ronnie is likely to be denied a Visa due to a pending investigation after he cold clocked a guy in a scene shown on Jersey Shore. It sounds like the Italian government is going to press the point. An embassy official told Radar that “Persons who are currently in the criminal process can not be issued a Visa.” I doubt that will curtail the show’s plans to film in Italy. Producers have made it sound like the kids are not irreplaceable. Ronnie is not one of the big stars and I would bet they’ll film without him.

In related news, Snooki and J-Woww are getting a spinoff where they’ll live together and surely get up to all kinds of drunken hijinks. I have yet to see more than a few minutes of Jersey Shore, but The Soup (love The Soup!) had a highlight last week where J-Woww peed behind a bar because she didn’t want to walk all the way downstairs in heels to the bathroom. It was disgusting, and she didn’t even pee in a cup. You couldn’t see anything because she was crouching down and I assumed she did her business in a cup she would empty in the sink. She really peed all over the floor though, because she sprayed water over it and then declared that her pee didn’t stink. I think that segment pretty much sums up this whole franchise. It’s below.

Snooki is shown on 1/13. Cast photos are from 1/6/11 on Good Morning America. Credit:

  2. samihami says:

    They won’t let them back into the US, right? I mean, that is the plan, I hope?

  3. brin says:

    @samihami….that’s what I thought, too!
    Don’t let them back in….please!

    No, we won’t think that; worry not. =D
    They strike me as silly kids trying to behave in a way they recognize as identifying of their subcultural group.
    They’re only interesting as a cultural product.

  5. Stephanie says:

    So, our little orange potato is heading to Italy! I hope they don’t try to make gnocchi out of her. Ugh.

  6. v1nc3nt says:

    they perfectly fit italian tv!

  7. devilgirl says:

    They disgust me!

  8. DD says:

    Ya I don’t think italians are particularly fond of this show. At least the few I’ve spoken with, if the jersey shore show is mentioned they usually roll their eyes.
    I don’t think the cast will feel welcome there, if I were them I’d keep bodyguards around at all times.

  9. womanfromthenorth says:

    It’s the first thing I thought!

    Please forgive us….

    They will not get much love over there.. hope the trip sucks

  10. Theuth says:

    Oh, FFS! Italy is already full of horrible things on TV, there’s no need of bringing here these loser!
    …on the other side, I’m pretty sure they won’t survive here, considering lots of Italian people can’t understand American language (English yes, dialects are another story); plus, Jersey Shore has been aired here last year and believe me, even our guidos (‘truzzi’) consider them a joke. It may be VERY satisfying see them being trashed by our trash.
    I reconsider my opinion: I can WAIT for them to be destroyed here.

  11. Maud says:

    Every country has their own brand of trash!

  12. Whatever says:

    The Italian advocacy groups need to point out that most of these losers aren’t even Italian. No idea why they are even going to Italy. They should be taking a tour of various South American countries. Of course, they don’t want them down there either!

    That story about Jwhatever peeing behind a bar is revolting.

  13. serena says:

    I don’t want to see it neither have them to film in my country D: I’m so very upset!

  14. flourpot says:

    How people like this can become famous is beyond me.

  15. Quest says:

    What class, what intellect (not). They need to go away, there is no country that deserves this

  16. Amandahugandkiss says:

    Ugh!! They aren’t Italian. They’re AMERICAN. We’ll see just how Italian they are when they get over there.

    Can’t wait.

  17. phlyfiremama says:

    Jeez, what did Italy do to us? Whatever it was, surely we can work it out. D we really need to punish them that harshly?

  18. Solveig says:

    Look, let’s do an agreement, we take them all forever and you take Berlusconi and his executive (lackeys and hookers) and lock them in Guantanamo.

  19. Brittany says:

    People rag on this show so much, but at least it’s funny and entertaining. Much more than the other bullshit reality shows out there.

  20. original kate says:

    remember that movie with tom hanks about the guy who had to live at the airport because there was some weird problem with his visa/passport? wouldn’t it be great if these assclowns had a problem like that and had to live at the airport in italy? here’s hoping.

    ps: sorry, italy.

  21. Cherry Rose says:

    Ugh. Can’t stand these people. Non talented waste of spaces. >.<

  22. Eleonor says:

    Oh don’t worry for us our prime minister televisions have no position vacant because of HIS hookers, so the Jersey shore crew doesn’t have too many chancees to succeed here.
    Edit:I co-sign Solveig, but you must throw away the key.

  23. the original bellaluna says:

    LOVE the side-eye the 2 on the right are throwing the tall one! Speaks VOLUMES.

  24. Catherine says:

    Why would anyone want to read about a fat, ignorant talking no-talent? Burn the book!

  25. Amy says:

    I’ve seen a few episodes of this show and it is entertaining for me because I live in the NY tri-state area which is where a lot of Italian-Americans live. Obviously the ones on the show are stereotypical of Guido culture which is why they were chosen in the first place. But there ARE people like them and I always find it hilarious they talk so much about Italian culture when the truth is, Italian-Americans and real Italians have very little in common. Brilliant choice on MTV’s part to showcase this!

  26. ezra says:

    They will give new meaning to “Ugly American.”
    @10Theuth- I lived in Italy, I am familiar with the Italian sentiment regarding Americans & the pathetic quality of Italian programming & I agree with you 100%. The “Truzzi” will have them for lunch.

  27. PrettyLights says:

    I watched this show once and felt like crying for the sake of humanity. They are all so rediculous, and yes they will make us look bad. I bet the Italians don’t want them there any more than we want them here. I saw that Soup bit – who the heck does something like that? Classless and disgusting!

  28. KsGirl says:

    They’re going to Italy? Oh! This is gonna be AWESOME.

  29. Jenn Jenn says:

    Italy’s head of state is regularly makes headlines for his orgies with barely adult women and prostitutes. I don’t think Italians will be bothered by the antics of the Jersey Shore crew.

  30. Mistral says:

    Ugh. They disgust me.

  31. dragonlady sakura says:

    Are we at war with Italy?!

  32. Hakura says:

    @Stephanie (5)- “So, our little orange potato is heading to Italy! I hope they don’t try to make gnocchi out of her. Ugh.”

    LOL, orange potato. And I agree, provided Gnocchi isn’t a dish meant to be fermented.

    “She really peed all over the floor though, because she sprayed water over it and then declared that her pee didn’t stink.

    OMFG. I was just speechless reading that. Most dogs have more class & courtesy. How can anyone find this girl attractive? (or Snooki for that matter…)

    @Arianna (1)- I KNOW!! That’s so hilarious. This site always has the best pictures.

  33. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    @original kate: That was The Terminal and I think there was a coup in his home country, or something. The way things are going with Sleazy Silvio, let’s hope Ganesh finally answers our prayers and affront to respectability will get walled up in some forgotten corner of Pompeii ruins. His dirty mind would be plenty stimulated there (Eric Idle impression).

    Oh CB! I heart you! That made me laugh so hard I cried!
