Fresh off her stint in the slammer - which, thanks to the cast’s superstardom and some clever editing, lasted about five minutes - Snooki was ready to take control of her life.
Being in that jail cell was “like a (expletive) phenomenon,” she said.
After a girl’s night in/therapy session with JWoww, Snooki finally acknowledged the root of her drinking problem: gorilla-juiceheads, or the lack thereof.
“Snooking” for love is like a staph infection, she said, admitting her addictions to bronzer, boys and alcohol.
Meanwhile, Deena heads to the club with MVP. (I would like to take this opportunity to rescind my previous remarks regarding “Jersey Shore’s” newest “meatball.” Despite a few desperate pleas for attention at the club, she really held her own. Welcome to the “Shore,” Deena.)
Her actions also prompted the funniest part of the episode… After spotting Ronnie’s doppelganger at the club, Deena decides to bring him back to the house for a little hot tub action/cuddle session. (Deena and Dean – how precious.)
MVP refers to Dean as Ronnie the entire way home, and he doesn’t seem to mind at all. It’s only after the crew arrives home that we (and they) learn Dean and Ronnie actually know each other. And - how’s this for a small world - they both have girlfriends named Sam. Oops – way to throw your look-a-like under the bus, Real Ronnie.
But the face Fake Ronnie made before confirming his relationship was absolutely priceless … and so typical.
After Fake Ronnie and Deena settle into the hot tub, Pauly D and Vinny share one of the funniest conversations in “Shore” history.
“How could he do that to Sam?”
“He’ll be back with her tomorrow.”
“I have an idea, why don’t we write Sam an anonymous note.”
“So they won’t even think it’s us, we’ll write it politically correct.”
“It’s girl code,” they agree, and seal it with a pinky promise.
Another drama-free night later (I love when everyone gets along), JWoww decides to set Snooki up with one of Roger’s gorilla-juicehead friends. Speaking of Roger... Thanks to a second doppelganger-induced incident, the girlfriend he was accused of having last episode doesn’t exist after all.
This little piece of information, among other things, I'm sure, leads to the destruction of JWoww and Tom’s relationship.
They break up over a heated phone conversation while the rest of the cast listens in.
“Roger that,” Pauly D says.
Worried about her dogs and her belongings, JWoww heads back to her house and brings Snooki along for the ride.
We saw a very different side of JWoww last night. Upon learning that her bed, her watch and her hard drive are missing, she breaks down. Not the best situation to find yourself in while being filmed for a TV show, let alone ever, I’m sure.
Good luck, JWoww!
