This Is Why The Jersey Shore Cast Were Filming Here
Ocean County was buzzing two weeks ago when Snooki and her pals from MTV's infamous "Jersey Shore" were spotted up and down the shore, from Asbury Park to Barnegat.
After much speculation and plenty of rumor (and that one-off Burger King spot), we now know what they were really doing here.
First of all, we can put one rumor to rest - it is indeed true that MTV has nothing to do with the filming.
But it is in fact true that they were shooting a reunion.
Snooki, The Situation (which, it's worth noting, still makes me cringe every time I refer to a grown man in a way that would be more appropriate for a 13 year old kid at summer camp), and crew were here to shoot a new series that will air on E! called "Reunion Road Trip".
The Hollywood Reporter says that the "Jersey Shore" cast is only the first crew to get back together to reminisce about the good old days, and that, "producers [are] exploring both unscripted and scripted series casts as possibilities for future episodes".
So it looks like the gang was here to indeed shoot a reunion of sorts, just not an official MTV one.
THR says that as of right now there isn't a date for the special to air, but we'll be sure to keep you updated so you can tune in (or so that you can make sure that all of your TVs are unplugged and literally unable to show you another picture of any of their faces).
