Jersey Shore Season 4 Filming in Italy: Delayed!

by at . Comments

No fist-pumping today. Looks like Jersey Shore Season 4 is on hold for now.

Snooki, The Situation, JWoww, Pauly D and crew were due to leave for Italy on April 14, a source confirms to E! News that production has been delayed.

The timetable has been pushed back "at least a few weeks." Why, you ask? Because the Italian government came to its sense and denied Snooki a visa?

That would make a better story, but no. Another reason.

While some Italian officials and commentators blasted the show and its stereotypes and want nothing to do with Jersey Shore, that doesn't appear to be the holdup.

A show source tells E! that producers are having trouble getting permits to film around Florence, though a rep for the Italian Film Commission denies it.

Rather, the network hasn't even applied, if you believe their side.

"We haven't been contacted by anyone from MTV or a manager for the show. Generally speaking, Italy is a film-friendly place," the spokesman says.

Another possible delay? Several castmates' contract squabbling.

Trying to strike while the iron is hot, the stars are reportedly holding out for more money and more freedom to make paid appearances in their free time.

MTV had no comment on the delay, but a network insider says that for various reasons, producers might scrap the idea of basing the season in Italy.

Instead, they'd shorten the stay abroad and "make it more of a vacation than them actually living there," or abandon the overseas trip altogether.

Which means the duck phone could be back in full effect come Memorial Day.

UPDATE, 4/13: The cast has signed HUGE new contracts and it's ON in Italy!

jwows tits look hideous. and what is with the gigantic horrific scars where she had them put in. ewwwwww. yuck. but the show is a hoot. it is like a car accident. you gotta keep looking at it. although it is getting a bit pompous with them thinking their rooting around is funny and needs to be meticulously documented. icky.


Can't wait for season 4. I think its fuckin' great that they can party and get paid for it. They're all hot specially pauly D, ....and snookie?......


Its not like Italy is the moral high ground of Europe. Have you been there? Guys will hit on anything with a vagina. There's plenty of people willing to interact and be filmed. Stop feeling sorry for Italians.


Fuck u all jersey shore is the best shire Eva!!!! Yaaaa buddy


No one cares anyways. These people are fucking jokes. And if that is in fact JWOWW on the end. Plastic surgery did nothing but make you look even more fake. and a little asian????????


I could give a flying fuck what the reasons are that they can't film but good!! Italy don't want them and neither do I!
They make humanity look bad!!


Seriously! They should take what they are given and be grateful.I'm so over paris Hilton Kim kardashian and all the other reality stars acting like they are a list celebrities. Go to Italy and rode this train for as long as you can.
