Jersey Shore's Sammi Giancola and Ronnie Magro got together early in the show's inaugural season. The pair proceeded to fight and break up a lot.

The live reunion after the Jersey Shore season finale was no exception. Ronnie and Sammi got into a big fight and swore this split was for real, too.

Not so much - they're back on!

Ronnie Magro became enraged after viewing never-before-seen footage of Sammi in bed, having a heart-to-heart, with The Situation on the reunion.

But co-star Snooki (a.k.a. Nicole Polizzi) says it only lasted a day: "They got back together two hours later. You never know with them," Snooks sez.

Sammi Giancola, Ronnie Magro

Ronnie and Sammi from Jersey Shore sure keep it interesting.

Despite fighting and breaking up around the clock, and Ronnie's propensity for kicking people's asses on the boardwalk, Sammi and he seem perfect together.

She's proclaimed herself the sweetest bitch you will ever meet, and he's clearly a juiced-up hothead with a heart of gold ... mostly. A match made in heaven.

Or at least Seaside Heights.

As for their co-star, Nicole Polizzi says her own love life is picking up these days, as some blogs have linked her to an unlucky, tan "guido" named Emilio.

Asked about the rumored romance, she said: "What the hell? How does that get out so fast? He's just a friend. We're hanging out but nothing serious."

Still, she can't help but add, "He's my guido. He's my type."

The cast of MTV's Jersey Shore would love to run it back for Season Two ... if the price is right, which it's currently not. The gang rejected MTV's offer to return.

Sources close to the negotiations say MTV offered then each a $10,000 signing bonus and $5,000 per episode. The guidos and guidettes were not interested.

Looks like we've got a Situation on our hands!

The cast has made it clear that they are negotiating Friends style. In other words, everyone wants the same amount and wants a lot more than MTV's offer.

In response, the network doubled its bonus offer and is willing to cough up $10,000 an episode. Snooki and Co. have not responded to the counteroffer.

Jersey Shore Cast Pic

As much as they act like trashy morons, the gang wasn't born yesterday. The season finale drew 4.8 million viewers, making $10K/episode a relative steal.

For reference, some members of The Hills cast are raking in $50,000-100,000 an episode, and that was pulling in half as many viewers last season at best.

The cast is on contractual hold with the network for another year and technically has no right to renegotiate, but this sort of thing is still done all the time.

MTV technically has not made a decision on whether there will be another season, or whether it will feature the current lineup or new guidos and guidettes.

But come on. You know they're gonna bring back the all-star roster. It's just a matter of finding a mutually acceptable price for those Jersey Shore quotes.

All good things must come to an end. So, too, must the first season of Jersey Shore, and The Hollywood Gossip has all the action recapped below as only we can.

Last night's ninth and final episode of the MTV hit's inaugural run was somewhat subdued and sentimental (seriously), which wasn't a bad thing. Let's get to it:

Pauly D's girl says the gang is "acting like Israelis." Vinny's reply: "Israelis are like [machine gun noises, gestures]." Equal opportunity stereotypes! Minus 3.

Vinny, Pauly D, and Mike head out for some male bonding. Plus 4, because this surprisingly normal behavior makes them actually look like chill dudes. Almost.

Sammi bails Ronnie out of jail after his latest fight. They hug. He says he's not sorry he hit the guy, only that he got caught, blah, blah, we're bored. Minus 5.

Upset over guys, Snooki decides to dance away the pain. Solo. In broad daylight. People stare as if this were the first Oompa Loompa in a white, leopard print mini dress they've ever seen break it down in front of a camera crew. Plus 6.

Snooki Dance Party

One-woman dance party. Snooki stizzyle.

Pauly D: "We stayed boys throughout this whole thing. This bond that we shared brings us together and no one can ever take that away from us, ever. Like, we take that with us for life, this bond ... That was deep." It sure was. Plus 4.

Sammi and Ronnie go out on a date, "somewhere out of Seaside ... getting away from it all." In Belmar, an even trashier location 17 miles up the coast. Minus 3.

The pair toasts each other and their future, post-Shore. Actually kinda sweet. Plus 2.

Poor Snooki whines about guys some more. Geez, give it a rest, girlfriend, Minus 7.

We learned last night that Vinny thinks Pauly D is "ridiculously, ridiculously good looking." Pauly D's look to the camera said it all. He's the ultimate guido! Plus 9.

Snooki and The Situation go hot-tubbing. We're scared for what's coming. Minus 5.

Snooki and Mike Make Out

The Situation and Snooki suck face. We're as grossed out as you.

Revolting as watching Snooki maul The Situation might seem, he was actually being genuinely nice to her, before, during after making out. Plus 6 for his sensitive side.

Mike: "Next thing you know, Snooks' clothes just started coming off!" No no no no no. Fortunately, he puts a stop to it, because they're like siblings, so only Minus 3.

Cue season-ending montage:. Fights. Hook-ups. Pickles. Abs. Fights. Hair spray. Fist-pumping. Fights. Hot tub action. Arrests. Laughs. Fights. The Situation. Plus 5.

TOTAL: +10! SEASON: +56! We're ready for a break from the Shore, but we also can't want for it to return. Follow the link for a full season of Jersey Shore quotes!

What can we expect on the Jersey Shore season finale tonight? Besides lots of hooking up, Ed Hardy t-shirts, hair gel and expletives being bleeped out?

Mike "The Situation" and Nicole "Snooki" called into Ryan Seacrest's KIIS FM radio show this morning to dish about the surprise hit freshman MTV show.

The Situation hasn't got time for the haters, pointing out that, "You can't please everybody out there. That's why they created the remote control."

Snookers defended her many hookups with dudes, saying, "I'm single!" and that she's been "just making out" and "not having sex" with them all.

Tonight, Snooki promises things only going to get "a lot crazier" and "We know each other so well now, we don't care if we hurt anyone's feelings."

So basically more bitching, fighting, drinking too much, fake tanning and clubbing are coming our way. Pretty standard, and just the way we like it!

The Situation

The Situation boasted that he hooked up with all the girls on the show but says that he would only sleep with "maybe 1 or 2" of ladies. He says that he and Snooki are "best of friends" but that "sometimes we forget and hook up!"

Gross.

The funniest source of Jersey Shore quotes opines that JWoWW "has her own sex appeal but she's not The Situation's style" and the biggest bitch on the show was Angelina, but she "left after seven days so she doesn't count."

And when it comes to what she likes in a guy, Snooki loves, "tan, sexy guidos" who can "rock the dance floor" and "guys that are into themselves" because "I'm into myself" and "need a guy that takes as long as I do to get ready!"

Maybe she and Pauly D should get together then.

Snooki, a.k.a. Nicole Polizzi, insists that she is "all natural ... [my breasts] are real, everything is. I swear to God! My boobs are real, and my hair is real!"

The Situation, a.k.a. Mike Sorrentino, confirmed that they are indeed real - gross again - as are his muscles. Yup, he's totally steroid-free. Supposedly.

Stephen Izzo says he got a raw deal. And by raw deal, we mean he got hit in the back of the head. After heckling the most juiced up of all the guidos.

That's right, the guy who Ronnie knocked the f*%k out on Jersey Shore last Thursday claims he got sucker punched. Sure you did, Steve. Good story.

Sucker-punched or not, you shouldn't go heckling the Jersey Shore cast. It will end in a fight. Not that Izzo minds. In fact, he wants a rematch now!

Izzo says he was trying to fight MTV security after they broke up his group's expletive-filled tussle with the guidos, when a guy came out of nowhere.

That's when Ron-Ron delivered a haymaker to the back of his head, Izzo says, leaving him lying on the pavement and getting Ronnie Magro arrested.

Anyway, Izzo says he's itching for Round Two.

Ronnie From Jersey Shore

Ronnie Magro's boardwalk blowup landed him in jail - but he won!

He says he's gonna show up for Ronnie's court appearance in a few weeks. We'll see if he puts his money where his mouth is. If so, he'll likely eat pavement again.

Just to clarify, this is not to be confused with the fight Ronnie got in during the previous episode. His scuffle with these morons landed them in the clink as well.

Oh, and one final note on the classy Stephen Izzo. This loser took to the Internet after the episode aired last week and typed the following disgusting tirade:

"lets get something straight what u didnt see is i never fought ronnie i was fighting...those N**GER bouncers when that bitch ran over and snuck me."

"then got stomped out by those 3 n**gers as he ran away."

Wow. We couldn't be happier Ronnie whomped this jackass.

Don't get us wrong. We find Jersey Shore quotes hysterical as the next site, and can't tear ourselves away from MTV's newest, trashiest, guiltiest pleasure.

But we're a little surprised its ratings keep rising.

Sammi and Ron

In news that is sure to have guidos everywhere fist-pumping with delight (even more than house music), the show bested everything on cable last week.

Yup, the show was #1 Thursday against cable programming. That's not including the major networks - or NBC, for that matter - but it's still impressive.

In this week's sign of the apocalypse, more than 3.5 million Americans watched as The Situation got his freak on with some trash bag in the hot tub on Jersey Shore.

MTV's menagerie of meatheads averaged 3.6 million viewers during last Thursday's back-to-back episodes, and gained a 3.5 share with viewers 12-34, up 9 percent.

The bad news? This week is the season finale. No more Boardwalk rumbles or shots of Snooki dancing with no underwear for at least another couple of months.

It's pretty devastating.

Two episodes of Jersey Shore? Back to back? Double fist-pump! The Hollywood Gossip has all the action from Seaside Heights recapped below as only it can.

Last night's seventh and eighth episodes of the season took the trashiness to a new level. Below, we award and deduct points as we deem fit. Let's get to it:

As the first hour gets going, Snooki catches the eye of an attractive non-guido, "Cowboy." He seems to take a liking to her for reasons unknown. Minus 3.

Mike is tapping some trashy chick in the hot tub when Snooki and the Cowboy break it up. That's right, Snooki just cock-blocked The Situation. Plus 10.

We thought the trash bag's friend coming to collect her was a dude. Minus 2.

Sammi lets Ronnie out of his cage for once. The Situation decides to stir up trouble by ratting him out for talking to some girl. D!ck move, Mike. Minus 4.

Duck Phone in Effect

Vinny makes a booty call. Duck phone stizzyle.

The Situation doesn't like Vinny mackin' in on his sister. He also doesn't like Vinny ditching her for the boss' girl Tanya. It's a total Catch (Situation?) 22. Plus 6.

Later, Mike pulls a robbery on Vinny's fake-breasted butter face trash bag, leaving V stunned. What a c*ck, but Even, because you gotta respect the execution.

As if Mike hadn't alienated enough people in one night, he refuses to walk JWoww home from the club because he's workin' on the nightly trash bag. Minus 5.

Plus 10 for JWoww pimp-slapping his ass at home.

Pauly D must confront a Stage 5 Clinger in some Israeli girl that is stalking him. Minus 7, because deep down he was into it and this was kind of wasted time.

Plus 3 for the hilarious phone impression of The Situation in an attempt to throw her off the trail, though. This guy's got The Situation quotes down pat.

Situation and Pauly

The Situation was cruisin' for a bruisin' last night.

Bored and determined to become the most hated man in N.J., Mike plants pickles around Snooki's room. Minus only 1, because a pickle sucker might like that.

Ronnie confronts Mike about his crush on Sammi. Mike says it's obvious "Sammi has a crush on me... it goes back to the days of prehistoric kindergarten." Plus 12.

After some dudes make fun of Snooki (a recurring theme in New Jersey and across the world), Ronnie gets arrested after he takes exception and knocks one of 'em the f*%k out. Minus 15, because the 'roid rage is off the hook with this guy.

TOTAL: +4! SEASON: +46! We wonder if Mike is really just a caricature of Mike, and doing everything he can to act like a jackass. Either way, we'll totally buy it.

A New York University Law student recently had and pursued a brilliant idea - bring Nicole Polizzi (a.k.a. Snooki from the Jersey Shore cast) to a party at NYU.

For the low, low price of $2,000, the students learned from celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton that they could book a night to chill and party with Snookers.

Snooki, Jionni LaValle

Unfortunately, Perez unearthing that tidbit quickly caused her price to go up. Her booking fee rose to $5,000 the next week. The Situation commands $7,500.

The student first hatched the plan December 23. Since then, Snooki’s appearance fee skyrocketed well out of the NYU Law students' broke, academic league.

For $10,000, this could be yours for the night. That's right, you have to pay Nicole Polizzi that to get her to hang out. She should be paying you for such torture.

Snooki now commands serious dough - five figures - to do whatever it is she does. Namely wear unattractive outfits, get drunk and try to hook up with strangers.

Ones who may or may not knock her ass out at some point.

We're read a lot of crazy stuff, but this may take the cake. Ten thousand dollars for a guidette troll to act annoying and probably puke on the floor at 2 a.m.

If you're into that, it's not hard to find for free many a local watering hole. Being smart, the NYU crowd passed on Snooki. But you know someone will pay it.

Snooki 1, Meathead 0. The New York City gym teacher who punched the Jersey Shore star in the freaking face last summer is now losing his job as a result.

Given that Brad Ferro's job is to help shape young minds, one can understand how beating up a girl, however annoying she is, would be frowned upon.

An official at the NYC Department of Education tells the site it's drafting a letter to fire Ferro, who was arrested for the barroom attack, within 30 days.

"The termination is underway," the official says.

Snooki Got Dropped

THE MESSED UP INCIDENT: A screen-grab from the now-yanked promo of Snooki getting clocked. She did not deserve that. She was being really annoying, though.

Brad Ferro, who lives and works in Queens, had been assigned to a non-teaching role ever since the controversial footage aired during a recent MTV promo.

The network ended up not airing the actual knockout blow after negative reaction to the promo. Snooki, a.k.a. Nicole Polizzi, did get drilled pretty hard.
