Attention All Guidos And Guidettes: Photos Show A ‘Jersey Shore’ Reunion Is Happening
Get a fresh blowout and prepare to GTL because it appears that a “Jersey Shore” reunion is happening. That’s right, the whole tanned guidos and guidettes from the TV show “Jersey Shore” appear to be filming for a reunion. MTV has not announced that there will be a reunion show, but photos by the cast of the show seem to suggest that they are at the Jersey shore and filming something.
The cast members of the hit reality show have been spotted in the Jersey beach towns of Point Pleasant Beach and Asbury Park in the past month. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley have been seen followed by camera crews. Toby Wolf, director of marketing for Jenkinson’s Boardwalk in Point Pleasant Beach, said the reality stars were at the shore “for a couple hours and played boardwalk games” on June 16. He added that they had a “low-key dinner” at Jenkinson’s Pavilion Restaurant.
The last episode of “Jersey Shore” was on December 20, 2012, and it makes sense that MTV would want to bring back “Jersey Shore” since it was the channel’s most-watched series of all-time. However, MTV has denied that they are filming a show for their network. “MTV has denied any involvement in the filming” and an MTV representative said that the production is not an “MTV project.” But that’s not what Asbury Park Mayor John Moor said. He confirmed that producers for the show applied for a permit to film on the boardwalk and beach under the name of “Roadtrip Reunion.” The mayor stated that “they paid their fees and everything worked out fine.” Asbury Park city officials said the show was being done by the Los Angeles-based Bright Road Productions, which probably means that it is a “Jersey Shore” reunion of sorts, but probably not for MTV since “Jersey Shore” was done by 495 Productions.
However, not everyone was thrilled with the cast of “Jersey Shore” to be back. The Langosta Lounge, a restaurant and bar on the boardwalk in Asbury Park wanted nothing to do with the reunion. Peter Mantas, entertainment director of Langosta Lounge, denied a producer’s request to film at the restaurant. “They called 10 days before they
wanted to film and we said no freaking way, it’ll be bad publicity,” Mantas said. “Bring those meatheads to the Langosta Lounge? No way.”
