‘Jersey Shore’ cast returns stateside, Snooki’s trim figure gets a story plant


At long last, Italy’s national nightmare is over. After the Italian government tried and failed to deter “Jersey Shore” from filming in its country by revoking filming permits for historic sites, the guido bunch still descended upon Florence. Once on the scene, the boys commenced street-bound fistfights (both of the real and pretend variety) while Snooki crashed into a police car, thereby injuring two officers and losing her license. Finally, after the conclusion of season 4 filming, the cast members have left behind countless empty bottles of fake tanning lotion and hairspray; now, they have immediately returned to New Jersey to begin filming on season 5. For many of them, this shall be their last go round before MTV recruits a new bunch of cheaper drunk tarts. In other words, they’d better save their money for the long, steep decine from fame.


In semi-related news, a very odd and obviously planted story has popped up about Snooki’s hardcore fitness regime, according to People:

Has Snooki been putting a little more stress on the “G” in her GTL routine?

Now back from Italy, where the “gym, tan, laundry” gang was filming season four, Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 23, seems to be gearing up for season five by working out.

The pint-sized reality star was spotted heading to the gym Monday with cast mates Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, who will all be heading to the Seaside Heights, N.J., house Sunday to begin filming the next season.

And despite her concern that all the spaghetti in Italy would interfere with her diet plan, Snooki seems to have steered clear of excess carbs. The reality star looked fit and healthy in her black and grey gym get-up.

“I definitely want to get in shape and be healthy again,” she told PEOPLE in January. “But it’s really hard to eat good when you’re traveling because you see fast food and you want to go to this restaurant and that restaurant.”

While we don’t have access to the particular photo that People uses for illustrative purposes (you can see it here), the photo appears to be taken at a highly flattering angle and does not accurately depict Snooki’s true appearance as of yesterday, which is shown below.


As for the notion of Snooki avoiding carbs while in Italy, well, that’s easily disproven as well. These photos, taken on 7/6, show Snooki during a 2:30 am cafe binge that reportedly included tortilla chips and two large ice cream sundaes. Of course, I don’t intend to poke any fun at Snooki’s weight in and of itself, but if her people are going to plant “fitness” stories in People, they ought to be prepared to deal with photo evidence to the contrary. I’m not saying this is anywhere near the degree of Kirstie Alley delusional territory, but let’s just not go there, shall we?

    I’m so sick of the Morticia Addams hair.

  2. Theuth says:

    You can actually eat pasta everyday without any problems for your diet, unless you have some kind of gluten intollerance; let’s stop with all these stupid myths about ‘evil carboidrates’, Italian diet has lots of them and it’s one of the healthiest around.
    I expect then to have gained a lot of pounds during their trip, with the alcool and (probably) all the good food they eat.

  3. TurquoiseBlue says:

    I think she looks ok. The girl is only 4’11 or something so she’s always going to look curvy.

  4. Rebecca says:

    Only if you’re young and/or have a fantastic metabolism, Theuth. None of my slim 30+ Italian girlfriends touch pasta, pizza or bread.

  5. Theuth says:

    @Rebecca: they are doing wrong, then. You can in reasonable doses and without exaggerating at every age, unless you have particular problems. The best way is eating a dish of pasta for lunch and meat/fish/legumes with vegetables for dinner: many people make the mistake of eating pasta with fat dressing or heavy sauce, gourge themselves over desserts and cakes and then wonder why they gain.
    I remember, when I was sick and couldn’t eat nothing, that my mother always gave me some pasta with just a hint of oil and that was able to calm my stomach, same with rice. Pizza is more heavy, but it’s a complete meal. Actually the only thing not necessary is bread, expecially if put together with other carbs, but for many it’s easier to avoid pasta and not the other way.
    Sei italiana anche tu?

    Poor wee Lassie! Shnooks looks like a rode hard put away wet 40!

  7. tiredofrumers says:

    i really don’t like the snarking on snooki’s weight, especially considering how open she’s been about struggling with bulimia. i think she looks healthy and her curves are great!

  8. Quest says:

    I think Mike “the situation” has lost his “Six Pack” and got “A Keg of Something” instead (second pic) :)

  9. Tierra says:

    Im with Theuth on the pasta/bread. everything is okay in moderation imo.
    Im 41 and still a slim size 6. I eat bread/butter almost every day as well as a lot of pasta. I also work out regularly but Id never EVER give up my carbs. Most ppl that do those diets usually have to stay on some kind of diet b/c they’ve screwed their metabolism up with their dieting, which is why they gain weight so fast when they do eat them.

  10. anait says:

    @Theuth: You’re right, it’s a matter of quantity.
    I’m getting fat, but only because I’m baking too many cakes and I’m eating them… have my own reasons to do so and I know that they aren’t good reasons, btw I didn’t have this bad habit before and I didn’t put on a kilo even if I ate pasta each day.

  11. Mari says:

    @Quest- I was thinking the same thing! He looks like a blowup doll…that’s puffy…and bloated.

  12. Jen34 says:

    I think Snookie actually looks good. At her height, she probably can’t take in too many calories without gaining weight, and a few extra pounds on a small frame shows easily. I’m only 5′ 3″, and even when I exercise regularly, I need to watch the calorie count carefully.

  13. Novaraen says:

    They are the ugliest bunch of people that I have ever seen.

  14. RocketMerry says:

    I agree. Pasta, pizza and bread are always on my table (I’m italian, too) and I’m very slim.
    The point is how much of it you eat and what you eat it with.

  15. GeekChic says:

    @Tierra and Theuth, I agree. I’m 33 and a size 4-6, and carbs are a mainstay of my diet. I’m vegetarian, so if I cut carbs I would have very few things to eat. I do exercise by doing karate and kobudo (seriously, gals, karate is amazing for your legs and butt, plus it’s just awesome to have the confidence to know you can kick some serious ass if you need to protect yourself or someone else). I have probably the slowest metabolic rate in history from years of steroids for asthma, so I’m not one of those women who can eat whatever she wants. Still, I eat plenty of carbs, I just don’t overdo it and eat everything in moderation. Carbs are not the enemy for the vast majority of people.

  16. Nanz says:

    The one that goes by JWOWW (I think) really is a pretty girl. Which makes this show/lifestyle all the more tragic. Every time I see a picture of her face, I think there is something really stunning about her – underneath all the Jersey Shore crap. But I’ve never seen the show, so I only know what CB and the celeb blogs tell me.

  17. i'm a cylon says:

    i think it has a lot to do with her roots.
    She is adopted and originally from chile (or Peru?). Please do not misunderstand me but I think they tend to be very short and ‘compact’.

  18. jover says:

    THose first two pics are hilarious and sad. In the sixties people were cool and hip naturally as part of the vibe of the time, but these losers, posing and fronting like they are the coolest thing since Jimi at monterrey, is just sad. THey are products and their sale by date is fast approaching; they are still roped in on the talk shows when no other guests are available, but their act is wearing thin; where will they all be in 5-7 years?

  19. Sloane Wyatt says:

    #10 @anait – I always turn to sweet cakes and such when times are quite hard, so I hope whatever your reasons you have to eat yummy comfort baked sweets that your situation gets better. In the meantime, enjoy your cakes whilst I munch my chocolate bar ’cause it really does make you feel better like nothing else.

    That’s a good thing:)

  20. Kim says:

    Not to be mean but Snooki looks exactly the same size. I dont see any weight loss. She is a very short girl so i imagine keeping the weight off, especially if drinking, is hard for her- like it is for most women.

    They all seem like decent enough kids. Maybe some have bigger egos than necessary but they are young and got quick fame & money and are handling it better than the Paris, Nicole & Lindsay crowd.

  21. original kate says:

    she still looks like an oompa loompa to me. being short has nothing to do with putting on/taking off weight. i am short and if i gain 10 lbs. you can see it, but the other side of that is when i lose 10 lbs. you can see that, too. snookie’s problem is not that she is too short but that she is lazy and probably has a crap diet – she has that carb/alcohol bloat and that softness around her waist that comes from no exercise. also, having orange skin and dressing like a truck stop hooker doesn’t flatter anyone.

  22. RhymesWithSilver says:

    Argh- I’m from Staten Island, and whenever the Jersey Shore people go out in a group, it looks like my high school reunion!

    I will be a little Italian porkchop for the rest of my life, but I cannot give up pasta and liquor. It’s not about how long I live- it’s about the survival of everyone around me!

  23. Amanda G says:

    It makes me angry just seeing Ron and Sammi. They are horrible people.

    Who is the guy on the steps in the 2nd picture? Doesn’t look like Vinnie to me? I guess it probably is though.

    Snooki looks more like the weight she was in season 1.

    “At long last, Italy’s national nightmare is over” and ours is just beginning again!

  25. Charlotte says:

    When the hell are they gonna be over???

  26. LBeees says:

    Skimmed the carb/no carb comments.

    As my two cents, carbs should represent 60% of your daily calorie intake. Strive to have some of those cals come from fiberous foods (legumes, for example, or potatoes) and at least half from whole grains and you’ll be good.

  27. hollywood101 says:

    I don’t see any weight loss. And what is with those hideous boots? Trash.

  28. wow!! says:

    I see three of them in that pic that could use a gym. The situation is so cocky, I’m surprised he has allowed himself to look so pregnant. Now that I know Snooky is Chilean and was only adopted into an Italian family I understand why she has that awful figure. Not a good looking bunch.

  29. I’ve learn some good stuff here. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how much effort you set to make one of these magnificent informative web site.

  30. I like the valuable info you provide for your articles. I’ll bookmark your weblog and take a look at again right here frequently. I’m somewhat sure I will be informed many new stuff proper here! Good luck for the next!

    It’s actually a cool and useful piece of information. I am satisfied that you shared this useful information with us. Please stay us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.

  32. May be a double standard, but Colin Firth played someone most people don’t remember. Obviously talent matters, but to those of us that are visual it is next to impossible to find an actor believable if they don’t look like the character they are playing.Report this comment as spam or abuse
