In an attempt to keep us around during the new fall TV season, “Jersey Shore” pulled out all the stops on Thursday night.
OK, not really. They did, however, show us footage of Snooki exposing her (blurred out) lady parts at a club. Like we’ve never seen that before.
Good thing Snooks wasn’t injured in that car crash from last episode or she might not have been able to dance around while simultaneously hiking her skirt up over her bum. (Ladies,
In all seriousness, we’re glad Snooki was unharmed and allowed to stay in Italy. Jionni, who was planning to visit her in Florence, was glad, too.
After finding out that Roger couldn’t get off work to visit (he was supposed to travel with Jionni), JWoww requested a girls’ night. So the girls - minus Snooki - went out for a drama-free evening of fun. (Side note: Why did Roger sound so shady and apathetic on the phone?)
The boys went out, too. MVP + Ronnie = Mr. VP. Noted.
Snooki, who stayed home alone, got a surprise visitor later in the evening. It’s Britney, b---h (sorry, I had to). As a prank, Snooks lets her in and told her to make herself at home in The Situation’s bed.
Snooki’s exchange with Brit in the confessional was one of the better parts of the episode. (Dear Britney, Snooki made you look dumb. Think about that.)
Unfortunately, when Sitch brought home a new girl, Snooki’s plan backfired. It's like Sitch says, when you’ve already got a bun in the oven, there’s no need to warm up another one.
Other than the fact that phrase is more commonly used to denote that someone is with child, Sitch makes a good point. (Speaking of children: Snooki needs to stop talking about having Jionni’s cute, tan babies. While their little meatball family would undoubtedly make for an entertaining spin-off, I’m not sure America is ready for Snooki to procreate.)
When Jionni finally makes it to Florence, he and Snooks decide to forgo a traditional touristy itinerary for a more “Jersey Shore”-type vacay: Time to hit the club.
But after watching Snooki’s public strip show, Jionni bolts. He eventually wanders back to the "Shore" house that night, but only to get his suitcase and leave again. Not sure where he’s headed, but there’s a good chance he'll make it back - considering they're still together.
During their fight, the rest of the cast dubbed Snooki and Jionni the new Ron and Sammi. Not to downplay their issues, but Snooki's temper tantrum was unlike anything I've ever seen. And I've watched this show since its first season.
What did you think of last night’s episode?
