Will The Situation (Mike Sorrentino) from Jersey Shore guest star on Bones? That's the rumor, as a Jersey Shore-inspired episode is already in the works!

The Fox series' creator, Hart Hanson, says he has approached The Situation to guest star in an October episode modeled, in part, after the MTV hit show.

“We’re trying to get The Situation to play a murder victim,” he said. “A guido is killed and Booth and Brennan enter that world to find out what happens."

"We’re not sure if it’ll actually happen or not. Talks are ongoing.”

Sources say The Situation would play fitness guru Ritchie “The V” Genero, with the role of Ritchie’s Victoria Gotti-esque mom not cast as of right now.

How will Bones star David Boreanaz handle this Situation?

“Bones actually understands them because she considers [guidos] to be a tribe,” explains Boreanaz. Adds star Emily Deschanel: “Brennan anthropologically studies them and knows the lingo and the behavior. [She's] down with the guido stuff.”

Aren't we all by now? The only disappointing thing about this story is that J-Woww hasn't been also cast as a guidette prostitute and steroids dealer.

Deschanel predicts that the episode will be packed with references to the breakout reality hit, noting “I guarantee that there will be a fist pump.”

There will be some here if this comes to fruition.

We know you'll be shocked to hear this, but Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was arrested in Seaside Heights, N.J., after an epic bender.

We're talking Thursday night into mid-afternoon Friday.

Disheveled in a garish miniskirt that left disgustingly little to the imagination, she was hauled off in cuffs wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with "SLUT."

Nice.

"Nicole Polizzi was acting in a disorderly manner while located on the beach," Seaside Heights Police Chief Thomas Boyd told the N.Y. Daily News.

She was later released with a summons and when Snooki emerged from the station about 7:30 p.m., she was greeted by 100 screaming fans.

She was accompanied by fellow cast members Jenni (JWoww) Farley, Pauly D, Vinny Guadagnino and their newest housemate, Deena Nicole.

Snooki knows how to party. And resemble an Oompa Loompa.

A bartender at Aztec Ocean Resort told The News Snooki was there and consumed "three shots of Patron Tequila and a Long Island Iced Tea."

"She didn't tip!" said the barman, who would not give his name.

A bartender at EJ's Ocean Lounge next door said Snooki and friends were there around lunchtime and "were plastered when they walked in."

"I saw her by the beach, falling around, wobbling. No one could control her. She was so drunk. Too drunk," said witness Kwame Achampong.

Several celebrity gossip websites said Snooki went out drinking Thursday and didn't stop until she passed out on the beach Friday afternoon.

"She was passed out face down in the sand," a source told E! Online. "She couldn't even stand up. She was on her knees and kept falling."

The Season 2 premiere of Jersey Shore, set in Miami, aired Thursday night. The cast is now back in the Garden State filming Season 3.

The greatness/awfulness that is Jersey Shore is back. As advertised, Season 2 features a new shore (pity Miami Beach), but the same crazy. And then some.

We were concerned that the cast's celebrity status would diminish the show's luster, but the genuineness of these characters (for better or worse) was there.

So was the entertainment. While predictable, it was great to have The Situation, Snooki, Pauly D, J-Woww, Ronnie, Sammi, Vinny and that other girl back.

Here's The Hollywood Gossip's scientific plus-minus recap ...

En route to pick up the Sitch, Pauly D sums up Northeast winters: "Can't do nothin' in this weather. Can't tan, can't creep ... Girls stay in the house." Plus 5.

A dark brown Snooki laments that she no longer tans since "Obama put a 10% tax on tanning." Pretty sure that doesn't take effect until like 2014. Minus 4.

Jersey Shore Season 2 Cast

JWoww and Snooki ridicule Angelina's self-proclaimed "Kim Kardashian of Staten Island" moniker. "With what ass?" JWoww muses. A valid point. Plus 3.

No one expected Angelina Pivarnick back this season. She awkwardly greets Pauly D and The Situation, who reluctantly let her bunk with them. Minus 1.

Down south, Snooki discovers "life-changing" fried pickles. They did look good. Plus 2. That dude in the restaurant gets a Plus 1 for his fist-pump, too.

Ronnie and Sammi reunite. The tension is thick, lame and boring. This is totally going to be a drawn-out, painful Audrina-Justin kind of thing. Minus 7.

Pauly D does a quick pro-con on the Angelina situation: She's annoying and causes drama, but there could be a slow night with no chicks, so ... Plus 18.

While the guys are awkward but mostly tolerant of Angelina, the girls are ready to full-on brawl. Holy crap, JWoww needs to lay off the steroids. Minus 5.

As a general rule, it's hard not to smile at what a blast the guys are having with this show. The girls, meanwhile, just come off miserable and catty. Even.

One of the Boys

Cons: Annoying drama queen. Pros: Easily accessible.

Lending a hand scrubbing in the sink after a DISASTER involving Sammi’s FAVORITE white shorts, Snooki says "I feel like a pilgrim from the freakin' '20s." Plus 6.

An intoxicated Ronnie calls Sammi an "ungrateful c**t" and says she will "never f*%king win." Win what, you effing moron? Get over yourself. Minus 13.

Vinny sums up the night: "Ronnie's obliviated at this point." Plus 6.

The Situation: "Ron is at the club hooking up with grenades, which is a bigger ugly chick, and land mines, which is a thinner ugly chick, and ... loving life." Plus 11.

Sure enough, Ronnie mauls one of each. Minus 8 for the nasty close-up.

An additional Plus 12 for the previews of future episodes. Wow.

TOTAL: +26. Follow this link for the night's best Jersey Shore quotes!

Jersey Shore, the second season of which premieres tonight on MTV, is a phenomenon. Not a good show, necessarily, but a phenomenon just the same.

From a small beach house in New Jersey, the self-professed guidos have inspired spray tans, blowouts and ab-tastic bodies across the U.S. and beyond.

What was a regional style - term used very loosely - has gone global thanks to Jersey Shore, which earned 4.8 million viewers for its first season finale.

It goes beyond fashion, too.

On top of clothing lines, cast members have penned book deals, filmed workout videos, inspired iPhone apps and command big bucks for appearances.

Not since Miley Cyrus and Hannah Montana have a TV show and its star been marketed so insatiably. Only this is a GTL-loving band of hedonists.

  • Got a Situation
  • J-Woww Photo

Fashion icons The Situation, left, and J-Woww.

For whatever reason, there's a whole community that really identifies with the show so much that they see themselves in the larger-than-life stars.

Jersey Shore products ranging from iPod Touch apps letting you "Jersefy" your machine to iTunes' "Spread Snooki" iPhone photo app exemplify this.

For a tan like Snooki, you can purchase a lotion called Sunlove, for which Snooki is a spokesperson. Or you can sample JWoww's Filthy clothing line.

For guys, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's clothing line for Dilligaf by Bohica Bill includes shirts, which he rarely wears, sweatshirts and accessories.

The most entrepreneurial member of the cast, The Situation also has a self-help guidebook for "guidos" in the works, not to mention a workout DVD.

Are their 15 minutes almost up? Don't count on it. The cast just signed big contract extensions for Season 3 and added a new star, Deena Nicole.

Jersey Shore's second season premieres tonight on MTV.

You will not be seeing Deena Nicole on it.

Still with Angelina Pivarnick out for Season 3 (she was apparently back for Season 2 after being out for Season 1), there’s room in the Seaside Heights enclave for a hot new guidette, and they've apparently found one in Snooki's friend.

Deena Nicole, real name Deena Nicole Cortese, is reportedly filming the reality show’s third season in N.J. Here's the brief rundown on her ...

Deena Nicole Pic

Watch out, Jersey Shore. Deena Nicole has arrived.

Real Jersey girl. Unlike The Situation, Snooki, Ronnie, Vinny and Pauly D, Cortese is the real deal. She hails from New Egypt, N.J., in Ocean County. Wonder what New Jersey's Governor, who hates the show, thinks about that.

Snooki's pal. Cortese goes way back with Jersey Shore leading lady Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. The pickle-loving reality star even reportedly helped Cortese get cast on the show. Cute.

Single status. Before deleting her Myspace page, Cortese posted that she was a single lady. But - sorry guys - one that's currently "not looking for anything."

Forget GTL, it's BBB. “All I need is beats, my broads, and booze,” she posted on Facebook before she began filming. NOTE: Become a fan of THG on Facebook!

Tomorrow on MTV ... It. Is. On. Jersey Shore returns for Season 2.

The entire cast is intact and now filming Season 3, to boot ... and then some. Deena Nicole, a self-proclaimed “Bad Ass Brunette,” will play a big role.

Mike n' Pauly

Where did the new star come from? Sources say she was already BFFs with Snooki and seems like she’s going to fit in well with the rest of the cast.

Deena, real name is Deena Nicole Cortese, and is good friends with Snooki, who helped get her cast. She was also hangin' with J-Woww on Saturday.

The 23-year-old is a former cheerleader who was on the squad at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, N.J. She went to New Egypt High School.

Jersey Shore's new girl looks like ... the other Jersey Shore girls.

Maybe Garden State Governor Chris Christie, who recently called out the show, will be satisfied that they added another bona fide Jersey-ite at least.

Well, at least until he sees Deena Nicole's racy MySpace page, which is filled with profanity-laced proclamations and sexy shots of her drinking, etc.

“I don’t give a f**k,” is interspersed with sexy pics and quotes like “I’m addictive and expensive like cocaine. I should just have my own TV show!”

The foul-mouthed female also recorded a video blog on her MySpace page in 2008, in which she rants about the way she's been treated by dudes.

Swearing revenge, she says, "we're gonna play you out, n**ga."

Yup, sounds like she should fit in fine with Ronnie Magro & Co.

Sources close to production confirm Deena will be appearing in a number of episodes in Season 3, but isn't considered a "permanent" cast member.

The Garden State has a message for Jersey Shore: Stay out!

Jersey Shore quotes are hilarious, yes. But are they even organically grown? Are we watching bona fide Jersey-ites or just a bunch of d-bag posers run amok?

The second season premieres Thursday in Miami before returning to the glorious paradise of Seaside Heights ... whose residents might prefer they not.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie could not accurately be counted among fans of The Situation, Snooki, J-Woww & Co. He said as much on ABC's This Week.

Mauling Pauly D

NOT FROM JERSEY: He's not, and the governor wants people to realize that what we see on Jersey Shore is not reflective of his state. [Photo: PacificCoastNewsOnline.com]

His take on it is that the series "takes a bunch of New Yorkers, drops them at the Jersey Shore and tries to make America feel like this is New Jersey."

He's kind of right. Pauly D hails from Rhode Island, Snooki from downstate New York, Ronnie the Bronx, The Situation and Vinny from Staten Island.

The Governor isn't the only one upset with the show either.

Last December, the New Jersey Italian American Legislative Caucus says the show is "wildly offensive" and promotes derogatory ethnic stereotypes.

Again, not incorrect. But do we care? Is it all in good fun?

Follow the jump to see the N.J. Governor's criticism ...

The Jersey Shore salary controversy seems to have dissipated as quickly as it arose in the first place, with new reports saying the whole cast has re-signed.

A rep for the network confirmed Tuesday that all principal castmates have inked new contracts to shoot the show's third season, save for Angelina Pivarnick.

Who? Oh, right, the quote-unquote Kim Kardashian of Staten Island who bailed after one episode last season, then came back, then evidently flaked again.

Oh well. Guess she couldn't hang with the wild times of Snooki, J-Woww, The Situation and friends, who will now bank an impressive $30,000 per episode.

That's up from $5,000 per episode in Season One.

Guido? You Know!

FIST-PUMP: They're back in business, baby!

"MTV is pleased that the Jersey Shore cast will be returning to Seaside Heights to continue production on Season Three," the network said in a statement.

"Not only have they become a part of the MTV family, but fans worldwide have fallen in love with them. Stay tuned for Jersey Shore Season 2 on July 29."

MTV had quite the situation on its hands, as Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Co. demanded a giant raise before allowing cameras to follow their awesome lives.

The Situation was the first to re-sign. The rest followed.

All water under the polluted bridge now. Let the Jersey Shore quotes, club-hopping, fist-pumping, hair-oiling, fake-tanning and boardwalk brawling begin.

Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is seen as a diva by many.

She says it's not true, but other cast members may still be jealous.

"Myself, Pauly, Vinny and Jenny [J-Woww], we've all stayed the same," Snooki says in the new issue of Steppin' Out. "We're the closest friends in the house."

"I trust them with my life... It hasn't gotten to our heads."

But Snook points out that herself and The Situation have become more in demand as celebs, which might foster resentment with the Sammis of the world.

SNOOKIMANIA: It's no Bieber Fever, but it's pretty big.

"I know the others want the same opportunities that Mike and I get, but we don’t control those things," she says. "I can understand why the others might be jealous. They aren't doing anything, but they should still be happy for me."

Snooki does lament her newfound fame to a degree.

"I miss my old life," she sighs. "I miss being able to be around my family and at home. I miss going out with my friends and going out to a bar. I can't do that anymore. When I try to do that, I get attacked by the fans."

Sometimes literally.

"I won't open up to anyone," she says, "except my best friend who I've known since I was 2 years old and my family and management team. That's it."

Production on Seasons 2-3 of Jersey Shore came screeching to a halt as Snooki and her pals threatened to go on strike, but it's all good now. Fist-pump!

Mike Sorrentino is taking control of the situation. Pun ... intended!

Perhaps the best known member of the Jersey Shore cast has signed a deal for a third season. Now his goal is to get the rest of his raise-seeking crew on board.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, all eight of the principal stars were close to signing new contracts today after initially asking for $30,000 per episode.

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Jenni "JWoww" Farley and the rest of their partners in crime made $5,000 an episode in Season 1 and $10,000 per for Season 2.

Considering the first season was only nine episodes, that really wasn't that much. Season 2 will feature a robust 24 episodes, giving the cast a big raise.

Yet they wanted more still, and it looks like they'll get it.

No word if The Sitch's contract has a steroids clause. As in he must use them.

MTV released the following statement: "We don't comment on any contractual conversations. Season 2 premieres July 29 and production is on schedule."

Rest assured, The Situation is already ahead of schedule. Rumor has it he was offered a one-time $60,000-$180,000 bonus to sign on for Season 3 and 4.

The network supposedly thinks The Situation, Snooki, and Pauly D are the only three non-expendable stars, but hopefully the gang will remain intact.

"Mike has been packed and ready to go for days for Jersey Shore 3 and is excited to move forward with the shooting," his manager said in a statement.

"After hearing there was a rumored strike, Mike decided in order to get Season 3 done, he was going to have to lead the pack and wants to encourage the rest of his cast to follow his lead and return for another amazing season of Jersey Shore."

"Mike is confident the rest of the cast will rally around him as they have in the past. The Situation has always been respected and well-liked by the entire cast. He felt that he could break the stalemate by putting these rumors to rest."

Ever-altruistic, and always a leader.
