Jersey Shore: The Show’s Most Iconic Moments!

Sometimes, every once in a while, actual magic happens.

And the news that Jersey Shore is returning to MTV for a brand new season?

If that's not magic, who knows what is?

The new season premieres on April 5th on MTV, and to prepare ourselves for that glorious day, let's take a few moments to look back at some of the most memorable scenes in Jersey Shore history.

Grab a nice tall glass of Ron Ron Juice, make sure your hair is straightened and your t-shirt is as fresh as possible … and let's do this.

1. That Time a Guy Punched Snooki Right in the Face

During the first season of Jersey Shore, some guy just hauled off and punched Snooki. Right in the face. For no real reason. He was immediately arrested, the horrific event served as a bonding moment for everyone, and an entire nation was somehow endeared to Snookers.

2. "Hold My Earrings"

Snooki fights with angelina pivarnick
In the grand scheme of things, Angelina wasn’t on the show for very long at all, but she still left an impression — a very, very bad one. In this legendary scene, Snooki attacks her after she announces her feelings that the rest of the cast members are “fake.” Because on the Shore, them’s fightin’ words.

3. JWoww Doesn’t Play

“Hold up,” you may be wondering at this point. “Are all these iconic moments just fights?” And honestly, yeah, a lot of them are. But could you honestly say that special moments like this one, the one where JWoww gets so trashed that she gets kicked out of a club and then blames it on The Situation and tries to hit him in retaliation, aren’t the most memorable?

4. Guido Makeovers!

Remember the beautiful bromance between Pauly D and Vinny? Here’s one of the most precious moments they shared on the show — it’s enough to bring a tear to your eye.

5. The Smush Room!

This clip in itself isn’t necessarily iconic, but it focuses on two things that will always be heavily associated with Jersey Shore — pranks and the word “smush.” In the clip, JWoww has plans to use the Smush Room for an evening with her boyfriend, but Pauly and Vinny aren’t having it.

6. The Situation Falls on a Grenade

While we’re talking about classic Jersey Shore terms, we have to talk about grenades, right? Like the last clip, this one itself isn’t what’s iconic — it’s just a really solid example of how seriously the guys took grenades. Which was very, very seriously.

Jersey Shore: See the Latest Teasers … and Angelina’s Return?!

We’re going to Jersey Shore, bitch!

Just kidding, we’re not — except we kind of are, because the legendary cast of Jersey Shore is returning back to where all that magic happened, and we get to see it right on our television screens.

Or, OK, they’re not exactly going back to where all the magic happened.

Instead of returning to the house that was actually on the Jersey shore, they’ll be in Miami again.

But still, in a way, we might as well be right there with all of our favorite guidos and guidettes, acting like the hottest messes that ever walked the boardwalk.

And how beautiful is that?

Back in November, we first learned that MTV was bringing back one of the greatest reality shows of all time, and ever since then, we’ve been anxiously awaiting its return.

Thanks to this new teaser, which finally reveals the premiere date, we now know we don’t have to wait too much longer!

Check out the preview, then we’ll talk:

OK, so April 5th — mark your calendars, and be sure to get your GTL in beforehand, because you aren’t going to want to miss this.

Just in that quick little video, we see Snooki going to town on a pickle — just like old times! — and Pauly D and Vinny rekindling their epic bromance.

Next, there’s Snooki humping JWoww, then Ronnie sitting on Vinny’s lap, looking absolutely trashed.

Finally we see a shot of the whole gang together before the teaser cuts to a shot of Deena and Snooki standing on the water, where Deena shouts to all who can hear her, “We’re your new neighb

Can you imagine?

Next is a teaser with a little more meat to it — and oh, what exciting meat it is:

That’s right! Angelina Pivarnick, AKA the Staten Island Dump, is back!

She knocks on the door and waits patiently until The Situation answers it, then greets him not with a hug or even a handshake, but with “You think I’m a dirty little hamster?!”


“Oh sh-t …” The Situation says, and it really does look like he had no idea she was going to be there at all.

He even asks her “Who sent you?”

She seems friendly enough, at least in this short little clip.

And it’s worth noting that she actually has suitcases this time around instead of trash bags.

But we can’t imagine that a house with Angelina in it will stay drama-free for long.

Since today is obviously a very blessed day, we have one more precious sneak peek to enjoy:

Remember Ron Ron Juice?!

Of course you do — how could you possibly forget?

But just in case you did, Ron Ron Juice is a special little drink invented by Ronnie, and as he explains it, it’s “the sh-t that gets the night going.”

“Whenever that sh-t comes out, it’s always a filthy night.”

Basically he just cuts up some watermelon slices and some cherries and then throws that stuff in a blender with cranberry juice, vodka, and ice.

Pauly D calls it “the root of all evil,” but honestly it does sound pretty delicious.

While the guys are sipping on their juice, The Situation takes a moment to explain some of his life philosophies.

“I wait till the last minute to shave,” he explains, “I wait till the last minute to put the shirt on, ‘cause then you feel fresh. These are rules to live by.”

“Shave last minute, haircut the day of, maybe the tanning and the gym. You gotta do the guido handbook.”

If you’ve ever watched a single episode of Jersey Shore then you know all this, but still, it’s comforting to hear all this laid out fresh, isn’t it?

Just a little over seven weeks until the season premiere!


Snooki & Jionni LaValle: Marriage Troubles Confirmed Ahead of Jersey Shore Reunion

Currently, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is in Miami, filming Jersey Shore: Family Vacation with her famous frenemies.

We imagine she’s enjoying the break from reality almost as much as Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino (who’s currently facing 15 years in prison for tax evasion), as Snooki has some serious issues to face when she gets back home.

For several weeks now, reports that Snooki and Jionni LaValle are headed for divorce have been circulating non-stop on social media.

Insiders claim that Snooki and Jionni are living separate lives and have spent much of the past year simply going through the motions of a happy marriage.  

“Snooki and her husband have been having problems in their marriage,” an insider tells Life & Style.

The source adds that Snooki “thinks that Jionni is very controlling and that he doesn’t want her to work. He wants a housewife, not a working mom.”

Snooki hasn’t spoken publicly about her alleged marital issues, but Jionni recently let loose in an Instagram tirade that left fans feeling perplexed.

Apparently, LaValle wrote the post while his wife was packing for Miami.

Jionni admitted that he was upset with his wife’s decision to leave home for an extended period of time, but he also–somewhat confusingly–claimed that all is well in their marriage. 

“Hey guys, I’m going to visit this subject one time and one time only so……. My wife is filming a scene packing up and leaving for her new show and I AM CHOOSING TO NOT be on TV because I simply DO NOT like it,” LaValle wrote.

“You will not see me on her reality show. Being a reality star was never something I wanted to be when I grew up,” he added.

“We ARE not divorced. For the HATERS I hope this message finds you and confuses you even more about life and for the FANS of my wife and her show… I got your back!!!”

One insider says the real cause of Jionni’s anger is the fact that Snooki made the decision that he should stay home with the kids while she gets paid to party with her friends.

“She sees Jersey Shore as her show, and he came in after it began She doesn’t need or want him with her,” says the source.

The fact that Snooki has hooked up with Vinny Guadagnino and also has a complicated history with Sorrentino probably isn’t helping Jionni to relax.

No word yet on when Family Vacation will air.

But you can bet Jionni will be watching intently.


Real Housewives of New Jersey: Struggling to Find New Cast, Facing Cancellation (Report)

Are you a female resident of the Garden State whose taste for drama is matched only by her love of sequins and spray tans?

Then contact Andy Cohen ASAP, because you might have a future flipping tables on one of reality TV’s trashiest series!

Yes, The Real Housewives of New Jersey is looking for new cast members.

It’s exciting news for Jersey residents, as along with the E Street Band and Chris Christie’s gravy supplier, the show is one of the state’s most reliable sources of steady employment.

With Siggy Flicker departing the series and ratings at an all-time low, cast members and producers are reportedly desperate to pull RHONJ “out of the gutter.”

And in this case, that’s not just a euphemism for moving out of New Jersey.

“Network execs told the ladies that they had to get the show ‘out of the gutter’ or else it was going to be canceled,” a production source tells Radar Online.

Insiders say the show is finding trouble finding affluent women who are willing to blow up their personal lives on national television for 15 minutes of fame.

Go figure!

“The women were told to find a way to make the show better and to help find a new lady to join the show that wouldn’t be so divisive. Bravo wants fun and this season was not fun,” says the insider.

Wait … there was a fun season of RHONJ?!

Would that be the one where Teresa Giudice went to prison, or the one where her husband went to prison?

We kid. In its early days, the show really did have a sense of fun and frivolity.

Of course, it’s hard to hold onto that when you have cast members serving hard time.

Anyway, the effort to land a new Jersey Housewife has reportedly gone in some bizarre directions.

According to one report, Melissa Gorga attempted to convince Chrissy Teigen to join the cast.

It didn’t pan out for the obvious reasons that Teigen is 1. not from New Jersey, 2. not a housewife, and 3. far too famous to ever seriously consider such a move.

But we can’t blame Gorga for trying something desperate, as sources say if the show doesn’t land a new lady soon, it won’t be returning for another season.

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online to get caught up in time for what could be the show’s final episodes.


The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 15 Recap: Margaret vs. Siggy

Kim D was back to stir the pot on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 15, and Teresa Giudice was not about to let her leave without throwing in her two cents. 

“F—k yeah, I’m on probation, bitch,” Teresa snarled at her enemy before saying that Posche stood for “Piece Of S—t Coke wHore Every day.”

Yes, we’re not so sure Teresa is very good at her spelling. We pity the editor of her books. 

Kim then pointed out that the fashion show raised $ 3,000 for the family, and that only paved the way for some more drama as Teresa claimed Kim stole some of the money for herself. 

Teresa yelled that Kim D liked to wreck marriages, and even threw in some words about her being a madame. This paved the way for Kim to say that she did not hate the idea of being one. 

Wouldn’t it be great if returned full-time? There would be fights on an episodic basis. It would really be Kim D vs. the world. 

When Kim D was ushered out of the studio because she served her purpose to rile the women up, Margaret Josephs admitted that she was being sued for over $ 9 million by Vineyard Vines. 

This has been widely speculated on social media and something Siggy Flicker has been taunting her with via social media, so it’s excellent that Margaret admitted it. 

Margaret was adamant that it was “normal” in the industry, but Siggy continued to try and paint the fashion designer as a bad person. 

Now that Siggy is out of the cast, we can breathe a huge sigh of relief until the producers cast the next unstable person to try and cut the women down. 

Then, it all switched up and gave us a Dolores Catania and Danielle Staub argument for the ages. If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you will already know that Danielle has been critical of Dolores’ relationship with her ex-husband, Frank. 

Dolores admitted that something was “off” with Danielle and that she did not have any evidence to back up the claims that she was on drugs.

“I get it. You don’t like me, but shut the f—k up and stop calling me names,” Danielle fired back at her nemesis. 

“I don’t want anything to do with Dolores Catania, that piece of s—t,” Danielle subsequently said while Dolores was backstage, and it became clear that Dolores loved winding Danielle up. 

She was legit laughing and Danielle shouting. Well played, Dolores. 

In the end, it all came down to Margaret vs. Siggy, which has been the storyline all season long. 

Siggy would not confirm whether she thought Margaret was anti-semitic, saying: 

“Only Margaret knows what’s in her heart.”

But things took a tense turn when Margaret started telling Siggy that she had deep ties to Jewish people. 

“Shame on you. You are not Jewish. You didn’t convert. You are not Jewish,” Siggy balked at her. 

Andy chimed in with his thoughts and admitted that his parents did not agree with Siggy’s sentiments about Margaret. 

“You don’t bring him up in casual conversation,” Siggy said. “It’s done.”

So, that’s a wrap on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8!

What did you think of all the action? 

Was it worth the wait?
