Get ready for a second season packed with house music, fist-pumping, trash bags, fighting with strangers on the boardwalk, and hilarious Jersey Shore quotes.

MTV's only newest hit show is coming back for Season 2!

The network, which had been engaged in some heated negotiations with the Jersey Shore cast, will run it back this summer with all the original stars on hand.

We can't wait for a new dose of DJ Pauly D, The Situation, Snooki, J-WOWW, Sammi, Ronnie and Vinny, although it looks like they'll be in a different setting.

That's right, Seaside Heights lucked out. The gang will “escape the cold Northeast and find themselves in a new destination,” MTV said in a Friday statement.

Warm weather locales, consider yourself forewarned.

The Cast of Jersey Shore

FIST-PUMP! All seven of these guidos and guidettes will be back on MTV.

MTV continued: “Our audience fell in love with Jersey Shore and its amazing cast who have really grown together as a family. That bond gives the show its heart."

"We’re thrilled to reunite these friends to bring fans what they love - laughs, love, drama and of course, GTL,” the network's president said in the announcement.

That would be gym, tanning and laundry - the daily routine of The Situation.

In case you didn't get your fix throughout December/January, MTV will broadcast the Jersey Bowl, a February 7 marathon of Season 1, on Super Bowl Sunday.

The investigation into the death of Brittany Murphy has taken an unexpected turn as the L.A. County Coroner's Office tries to fill in key gaps in her medical history.

The actress, who died December 20 at the age of 32, was suffering from severe anemia and other conditions and was under a physician's care, according to TMZ.

Rest in Peace Brittany

The Coroner's Office received medical files from Murphy's doctor, but they show her last visit was months before her death. But someone else was treating her.

The pathologist assigned to the case has been told by Brittany Murphy's friends and family members that other doctors treated Murphy during her final months.

Officials believe these other doctors could help determine her medical condition leading up to her death, and shed light on what, if any, medications she was on.

Brittany Murphy (1977-2009) with husband Simon Monjack.

The toxicology report is not completed, but when it is, the coroner will determine if the medications in Murphy's system were prescribed to her or someone else.

Investigators found numerous medications in Murphy's home after her death.

The mystery comes because those medications were prescribed to Murphy, her husband Simon Monjack, her mom Sharon, and "unidentified third party names."

Monjack has said, in several of his many interviews since Murphy's death, that the meds were his. But it doesn't appear to be case, at least not exclusively.

Dude's also suing Warner Brothers for wrongful her death. What a nut job.

In any case, the Coroner's Office is not expected to release the official cause of Brittany's death for weeks, with these various loose ends needing to be tied.

It looks like Maddox Jolie-Pitt has something in common with... millions of other penis-based human beings.

The eight-year old son of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie has developed feelings for Kim Kardashian, as he attended last week's New Orleans Saints game with his father and was more interested in shots of Kim on the big screen than he was in shots on Brett Favre by defensive ends.

It sounds like Maddox wants to defend Kim's end, if you know what sources mean!

  • Maddox Jolie-Pitt Picture
  • Sucking A Lot

That's not how I suck on lollipops, daddy...

“He has a huge crush on Kim,” a family insider told OK! Weekly. “He thinks she is the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen. Well, he used the words ‘hottest girl’ to be exact.”

That's saying a lot for a guy that has likely seen Angelina Jolie in her underwear. It's also saying a lot of likely BS from a magazine that claims Pitt has reunited with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston.

Still, friends claim Kardashian is flattered by Maddox’s affection. This is just what the Saints don't need: a reason for Reggue Bush to be distracted in the week leading up to the Super Bowl.

The domestic agenda of Barack Obama was not the only thing affected by the election of Scott Brown as a senator from Massachusetts.

The politician's daughter, Ayla Brown, has found herself back in the spotlight.

A season five semifinalist on American Idol, Ayla had pretty much faded into obscurity prior to her dad's shocking victory. She had planned to release a new album in April, but her label called the morning after Mr. Brown was elected and said it wanted to move up the release date of "Circles." To January 26!

Fortunately, the CD was complete and Brown can look forward to greater sales than previously expected. She talked about the whirlwind of her career with Entertainment Weekly:

On her American Idol experience: It was positive. I was 17 at the time. I had only played basketball. Never sang in front of people, except for national anthems at local high school games. So being on stage with a live band was a first for me. Of course I was nervous. Of course there were times I felt I had no idea what I was doing. That was the fun part.

On her new album: This CD I’ve had much more of a part in, in terms of the thought process, the lyric writing, music, everything. It means that much more to me because of that.

On her dad's Idol prospects: Uh, I don’t think he would do well at all. I haven’t heard him sing in years. I would be very curious to see how that would go.

Will you purchase Ayla's album?

It's like celebrity gossip magazines and websites are actively engaged in a bet over who can make up the most ridiculous Angelina Jolie gossip item this week.

With this latest rumor - that Angelina Jolie and Lady Gaga were lovers - celebrity gossip has officially hit a new high. Or low, depending on your perspective.

According to Ian Halperin, author of the recent lie bestseller Brangelina: The Untold Story of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, that's precisely what happened.

Jolie, who is reportedly bisexual, Lady Gaga, a rumored hermaphrodite, had a secret rendezvous at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel that lasted all night, he says.

“Angie is obsessed with Lady Gaga,” a source said.

Aren't we all. That definitely confirms the affair!

Just Gaga

This supposed Lady Gaga tryst is not the first time Angelina Jolie has been accused of cheating on Brad Pitt. Heck, it's not even the first time this week!

Last week, In Touch spoke to Anna Kowalski, a housekeeper who worked at the Waldorf-Astoria in NYC, who claimed Angelina had sex with a dialect coach.

“The room was a disaster,” Anna said. “There were empty vodka bottles everywhere. The bed was covered with black rubber sheets ... there were sex toys on it.”

This was widely denied, but it was just the beginning.

Then two days ago, four different tabloids unleashed a deluge of reports claiming Brangelina was done for ... and Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston are totally back on.

Jolie has previously spoken of her desire to have an open relationship. For whatever reason, Star, Life & Style and their ilk seem determined to tell us she's in one.

Groundhog Day (February 2) is just around the corner, and the misguided folks at PETA are generating pointless controversy by demanding its icon be freed.

That would be Punxsutawney Phil, the affable rodent who emerges each year at Gobbler's Knob to dictate if winter shall continue or early spring commence.

For those keeping score, he's prognosticated six more weeks of winter in 98 of his 112 weather readings - although PETA hopes he won't make his 113th.

The controversial animal-rights group wants to take Punxsutawney Phil away from Gobbler's Knob and give the guy a retirement at an animal sanctuary.

In his place, they are proposing a robot groundhog.

Punxsutawney Phil rules. Groundhog Day is fun. Eat it, PETA!

Gemma Vaughan, PETA's animals in entertainment specialist (really) fired off a letter to Punxsutawney Groundhog Club president William Deeley this week, imploring the organization to forgo the use of real rodents in future Groundhog Days.

Deeley responded in a statement to the Associated Press that the world-famous groundhog is "being treated better than the average child in Pennsylvania."

Furthermore, Phil's treatment conforms to the standards of the state's agriculture department, which visits him at the town's Groundhog Museum annually.

Still, PETA V.P. Tracy Reiman is lobbying for an animatronic Phil, who "would attract new and curious tourists" to Punxsutawney's annual event. Please.

You know what actually attracts tourists? Tradition. You know what might actually help animals receive more ethical treatment en masse? Not this!

Are ridiculous PR stunts really the best way to advance a cause, or are they just out for attention? These people are the Tila Tequila of non-profits.

You tell us, though: I'm on team ...

There's little debate that Super Bowl XLIV will pit the top teams in each conference against each other.

But there's already a great deal of controversy surrounding commercials that will air on CBS during the game. A pro-choice group, for example, is taking extreme exception to the planned Tim Tebow ad on the February 7 broadcast.

Many liberals might have more to shout over now:

CBS continues to stall over a commercial from ManCrunch.com, a gay dating website. The network has told the company that ad space is full, though many spots remain unsold. Said spokesman Dominic Friesen:

"It's clearly a form of discrimination that we're getting the runaround, that we're not being told the truth. Quite frankly, there is a lot of ad space available - a lot of the companies that typically advertise during the Super Bowl are not advertising this year."

In the 30-second spot, two men are watching the game, reach into the chip bowl simultaneously... and then make out. Watch it below and sound off: Is this a double standard, considering the approval for the aforementioned pro-life ad?

Tila Tequila is good.

You've really gotta hand it to this professional attention-grabber for doing everything she can to sell her fake pregnancy story. First, came the the website announcement. Then, the photoshopped sonogram.

Now, Tila has moved on to phases three and four of her plan: shop for baby clothes and hint at a father for her imaginary unborn child.

The paparazzi-addicted loon was spotted today at Kitson's Kids in Los Angeles. She aptly held up a toddler - as real as the tyke supposedly growing inside her belly - for cameras to see...

Fake Baby Pic

Meanwhile, after initially saying the sperm donor responsible for planting his seed inside her troubled womb was a war veteran, Tila is now teasing that it's a famous rapper who has been in trouble with the law.

Is this all part of her GAME? You tell us. Consider these Tweets from last night:

  • RT: @ihategame To My Unborn child (2pac's voice) <=== Hmmm what ever do you mean by that?? Gee I wonder! Tell me!! haha!
  • RT @skyla79: WTF is @ihategame the father of @officialtila's baby?!!
  • RT @skyla79: WTF is @ihategame the father of @officialtila's baby?!!
  • You guys stop asking me if @IhateGame is the father of my child.....STOP ASKING ME! GO ASK HIM!

Ok, fine. Hey, The Game, are you the father of Tila Tequila's unborn child? Call us!
