'Jersey Shore': The morning after

We're going to start this recap with a little bad news: A repeat of “Jersey Shore” aired last night. But the good news is that it’s not too late to reminisce about the madness that was Sunday night’s (pre-Video Music Awards) episode.

Unfortunately, Vinny and Angelina didn’t have the awkward morning after I was hoping for. No quietly sneaking out of bed, trying desperately not to wake the other person. No "where am I," or "what happened last night?"

The universe did throw us a bone with a brief phone conversation between Angelina and Vinny’s mother, but even that scenario had the potential to be way more amusing than it was.

When Vinny’s mother finally made it to the house, she opened her suitcase to reveal stuffed peppers, chocolate cake and countless other goodies rarely associated with luggage. But that’s not all: She also brought Uncle Nino, known to some as an “original guido.”

While Vinny was busy gushing about his mother - “They don’t make women like my mother anymore,” he informed us - The Situation was busy berating Angelina for being a terrible human being.

Despite The Situation’s questionable morals, he seemed to feel very strongly about not hooking up with your roommate after accepting a Fossil watch from another suitor. Or could these newfound scruples just be a result of his undying hatred for Angelina? Hmm…

Back to Vinny’s guests… Pauly D described the madness in the house best when he said it was “a lot of people yelling and talking with their hands.”

After a multiple course meal prepared by Vinny’s mother, Uncle Nino, Jwoww and the rest of the roommates got in the hot tub.

“My Uncle Nino doesn’t really have the highest standards in the world, so these girls are looking like supermodels to him,” Vinny said.

After a quick dip, Vin’s family left and the roommates headed to the club.

Pauly and Mike each picked up girls. However, Sitch's style – which Pauly described as “super obnoxiously aggressive” – didn't work in his favor this time. His catch of the night ended up telling him she has a boyfriend and leaving. No worries - The Situation always has a backup plan/girl.

At 6 a.m., Pauly and Mike made calls until they found a girl willing to come over. Mike asked her to bring a friend for him – “no grenades.” When she arrived alone, she simply said, “All my friends are grenades.” Hilarious. So, Mike made himself an egg sandwich and enjoyed the show from his bed.

The next day at the club, Mike threatened to tell Jose about Vinny and Angelina, “the Staten Island ferry - everybody gets a ride and it’s free.”

In order to beat him to the punch, Ang told Jose that she and Vinny hooked up the other day. Lucky for her, Jose interpreted that as "they kissed" and almost immediately forgave her. If he hadn't already gotten the real story, he surely watched it go down on TV this week. Sorry, bud.

Vinny, meanwhile, met a...dancer that night at the strip club named Ramona. Vinny said Ramona is everything he looks for in a girl.

“I finally found a girl I might be able to introduce to my family one day,” he added.

I’m just wondering what it is about Ramona that makes Vinny think his over-protective Italian mother might approve of her. I’m thinking it’s not her day job.

At the same time, Pauly is falling for a beautiful Cuban girl who he actually wants to get to know – so much so that he doesn’t invite her back to the house. (Gasp!)

The next day, the boys ask their respective girls out to dinner. Vinny, who has no game, stuttered and mumbled until Ramona finally said yes out of pity, while Pauly D had no trouble securing a date.

The boys went out to get their hair done, buy flowers and get some new clothes. But when poor Vinny returned home, Ramona called to cancel. He slammed the phone down and stormed outside.

Vinny wasn't going down without a fight, however, or at least one more pathetic phone call asking his dream girl to “please, please, please, please” go out with him. She agreed only to stand him up later that night.

Pauly D and his date went out, as did Angelina, Jose, Ronnie and Sammi. Vinny sat at home alone looking depressed and The Situation… where did he go?

What did you think of Sunday night’s episode?

    it's a good thing Vinny's date turned him down, she was probably a dude. It was his lucky day

    Yeah I felt bad for Vinny too. He'll find someone else quick though, b/c I think he's the most attractive male in the house. And that's the first time I actually saw Pauly want to treat a girl with respect. Depending on the girl, a guy's reaction to her changes IF he wants something more than a fling. Guys try to act retarded, but in the end I think they all know how to act properly. The only difference is if they want to...and Angelina has multiple personality disorder!!! She's crazy and two-faced. She cannot be trusted for anything....

    I swore this show is garbage at it's finest..but did that stop me like countless other from getting hooked on it? NOPE!! I think the show is hilarious because you can't take that stuff seriously. It's entertainment. Question though. It's all over the tabloids these guy/girls can't go anywhere without the paparazzi all over them. So then how is it they work in an ice cream shop and one episode shows Snooki and Vinnie working and bored there are no customers???? Don't you think if the paps knew they were there or if anyone caught wind the cast was there that there would be hoards of fans lining up at the door. Makes ya think huh? Is any of this show scripted?????

    I love this show lol.
    If you watched last season you will know that the "sanitation" as uncle guido called him had NO GAME, he only got some game now that he's famous and pulling in 5 mil this year.

    Sammi, please shut the F up... You didn't win a fight. You can't win anything while the other person is being restrained. I would LOVE to see a 1 on 1 fight between Jwow and Sammi.

    Jwow is absolutely the hottest girl in the house.

    I thought being a guido meant being a tough Italian guy with a new york accent. According to the "Situation" it means talking like an African American rapper and according to Vinny it means having no game. The only guido on the show seems to be Ron and i read online his last name is Ortiz. LOL

    For being a supposed stud, the only girls he seems to end up with are grenades and ugly chicks. Then again his face is a trainwreck and the bod can only go so far
