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 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!

Get ready to beat up the beat.

Snooki and J-Woww, a.k.a. Nicole Polizzi and Jenni Farley, a.k.a. the really short, orange girl and the behemoth with the enormous fake boobs from Jersey Shore, posed for the cameras at the Jersey Shore Soundtrack Album Release Party this week.

That's gonna be an awesome soundtrack, for sure ... this gang requires the right kind of tunes to go absolutely wild on the boardwalk. Which they will do again, beginning July 29 on MTV (follow the link to peep the Jersey Shore Season 2 trailer).

The real question, of course, is ...

Snooki and Jenni

Who would you rather ...

Last season on Jersey Shore, Brad Ferro punched Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi.

That was very uncool. You cannot condone violence of that nature, especially perpetrated against an Oompa Loompa by a 'roided-up gym teacher.

A drink tossed in her face, tough? That we can appreciate.

The reality star, who just broke up with Emilio Masella, was doing shots with co-star J-Woww at Ocean's 10 bar in Miami Saturday at 6 p.m.

That's when some random dude approached her.

Do not f--k with the Snook.

"She was in a good mood, but this particular guy was obviously interested and she wasn't,” a witness said. "She told him flat out, 'Don't f--k with me.'"

He yoinked her drink and walked off. The situation escalated.

"I guess he provoked her by wanting an apology and she flipped out," the witness said. "Snooki threw a handful of food from her table at the guy, and then slapped him on his shoulder and his face - before tossing a plastic cup at him."

It is unclear whether this will be shown on Jersey Shore, but unknown guy retaliated by throwing his drink all over Snooki. Well worth $7.50.

J-Woww ran over screaming "What the f--k happened?" as security threw him out. Snooki said, "He took my drink!" Scintillating, as always.

After taking a few seconds to re-do her hair pouf, she continued partying with J-Woww at another location. Season Two begins July 29!

The Jersey Shore cast needs to hit the beach or something. They're looking kind of aimless in these photos from a recent day out and about in Miami.

Seriously, they look bored. It must not be the same in South Beach without the sights and sounds of Karma and Ronnie pummeling boardwalk idiots.

This awesome photo of Snooki and J-Woww got us thinking, though: Which one of the Jersey Shore cast members would you rather ... you know?

One is a HGH-riddled behemoth with enormous fake boobs. The other may or may not be auditioning for Little People, Big World later this year.

Both fake tan and wear ridiculous outfits. So who's it gonna be?!

"I'd do it every year if I could." J-Woww on breast implants, to Harper's Bazaar.

Quotes like that give you some idea of what the fashion mag was up against when it sought to turn Jersey Shore cast members into elegant, classy ladies.

If you never saw show, however, you might be fooled. Jenni (J-Woww) Farley, Sammi Giancola (Sweetheart) and Nicole Polizzi (Snooki) clean up nice ...

The Jersey Shore Girls

FISH OUT OF WATER: The girls attempt to look refined.

In the magazine, Snooki, J-Woww and Sammi get etiquette lessons from New York City socialite Tinsley Mortimer for reasons unknown. Will they take?

"I know a couple things about manners," Snooki declares. "I just don't use them."

There you have it. You can take the princess out of Poughkeepsie, but you can't make the princess any less trashy or have her put on underwear.

The cast of MTV's Jersey Shore has brought its GTL, bed-hopping, first-pumping antics to Miami's South Beach for Season 2, but that's just the beginning.

Lest you thought Seaside Heights, N.J., was a thing of the past, the gang will be returning to the Garden State - in the very same house - don't you worry.

They just got a jump on Season 2 in Miami because of the weather.

"Once the boardwalk heats back up, the series will return to the Jersey Shore to complete the season," MTV said, noting that the season starts July 29.

The Cast of Jersey Shore

All the lovable guidos and guidettes will beat up the beat again: Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Sammi Giancola, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Vinny Guadagnino.

Also returning? Angelina Pivarnick, a.k.a. the random girl who bailed after like one episode, and a.k.a. Kim Kardashian of Staten Island (self-proclaimed).

The network is also exploring adding new cast members to the second season or more likely the third season of the surprise reality hit. Filming dates in Seaside are July 1-September 19, so it looks like a third season is in the works.

"It's like a big family reunion," said Tony DiSanto, MTV's president of programming. "We couldn't be more excited that the whole group is together in Miami and that they'll be going back to Jersey when the sun heats up."

Also heating up? Tempers. MTV worries that more peeps will pick fights with Snooki, Ronnie and company just to get on TV (the stars will likely oblige).

The network has requested additional police presence for the cast. According to the Seaside Heights P.D., MTV wants 8-10 off-duty officers - their tab.

The Jersey Shore cast just screams high fashion, doesn't it?

Somehow, the Ed Hardy-wearing, fake-tanned likes of J-Woww, Snooki, and Sammi and their tight "going out" top glory are featured in Harper's Bazaar.

In related news, The Situation will be guest-editing Vogue.

You have to give the girls credit for cleaning up nicely, though, even if Snookz can't pose for a picture without wearing that ridiculous grin (or something).

Classy Jersey Girls

DOLLS: The women of Jersey Shore get classy.

Perhaps J-Woww summed up the experience best on Twitter: “Harper Bizaar shoot in 6 hrs and can’t sleep :( ... Omg to the Harper’s Bazaar Shoot. Prior to the show I never purchased one mag/ now I’m in a lot of em! I buy 10 a wk! They’re addicting!”

So true.

All three of the ladies shown above will appear in the magazine, and at least for their standards, they look (dare we say it) pretty classy in the process.

The Jersey Shore cast is ready to take Miami.

But first it's off to L.A. for a press tour for Snooki, DJ Pauly D, The Situation, Vinny, Sammi and Ronnie. Are they ready for L.A.? Hells yeah these guidos are.

But is L.A. ready for them?

Doesn't look like it has much of a choice, but here's the cast of MTV's breakout hit, mugging for the cameras right after touching down at LAX Airport ...

Jersey Shore Cast in the House

DIRTY HALF-DOZEN: The Jersey Shore cast members arrive in a location where some people besides them are actually tan. Possibly from the sun, even. Novel concept.

The gang appears to be in fine, orange, Ed Hardy-wearing form. We can't wait to see where they turn up next ... actually we can, but will find out for you anyway.

So much for being a "guidette."

Jersey Shore star Jenni Farley, a.k.a. JWoww, admitted on Fox's Strategy Room Tuesday that she and co-star Nicole Polizzi, a.k.a. Snooki, aren't even Italian.

She may be the "Guidette Princess of F*%king Poughkeepsie" (one of our favorite Jersey Shore quotes), but Snooki is predominantly of ... Chilean descent.

So f'ing weak. Now we don't want to see Snooki nude anymore. THG NOTE: We never did, nor can we see what the appeal is there. Sorry, Emilio Masella.

J-Woww says she personally is Spanish and Irish. Spain and Ireland are rolling in their collective graves, while Italians everywhere are rejoicing at this.

Snooki is not really Italian. Nor is she tall.

In truth, the ancestry of these idiots (or anyone) doesn't matter. They're all Americans and we watch because they're lovably trashy. But why promote it so falsely?

The MTV hit show was slammed by Italian-Americans for perpetuating "negative stereotypes," hyping up its "guidos" and "guidettes" in previews and interviews.

"If you replace Italian-Americans with any other ethnic group, would they use such a pejorative term to promote the show?" the president of one group posited.

Basically they bash Italians and aren't even Italians themselves. Classy.

Such a disappointment. We feel so used. At least we know Heidi Montag's plastic surgery is real ... though by definition her boobs, face, etc., are fake. Irony.
