This week, down on the Jersey Shore, the prank war kings returned, while Mike pondered his future with Paula and Deena got really, really trashed again.

Read on for THG's full recap!

Deena Cortese on Jersey Shore

Before the show, Vinny discussed Hurricane Sandy - it hit the gang's Seaside Heights, N.J., stomping grounds hard - and urged viewers to donate to the Red Cross.

Well done, Vin and MTV. Plus 100.

Back to the show. Roger Mathews and JWoww did not break up, obviously. We were well aware of this already, given that the two just got engaged. Plus 25.

We love us some Deena Nicole Cortese, but wow. Just wow.

As the final season of Jersey Shore plays out on MTV, we got to relive one of the past summer's most notable highlights from Seaside - her drunken daytime arrest.

Did the episode do justice to our heightened expectations?

Let's recap Jersey Shore, THG style, and find out!

  • Meatball Day
  • Deena Cortese Arrested

First things first, and we pick up after last week's brawl at Bamboo, where Jenni was tossed to the ground by her crazy boyfriend (now fiance) Roger Mathews.

JWoww, who was trying to break up the right, tries to smooth things over by saying she's sure he didn't know it was her. His response? "I recognized you the entire time."

Gotta love a man who's honest at least! Plus 10.

The Jersey Shore Season 6 premiere was just an appetizer.

$h!t got a lot more real last night in the season's second episode - also a two-hour event, thank you MTV - in which Snooki moved out of the Shore house.

How did that turn out? And what other stuff went down?

Let's recap Jersey Shore, THG style, and find out!

Snooki moved into her own "grandma shack" next door. A good compromise, as she was literally like 50 feet away, yet will be in much better health. Plus 20.

No sluts, no smoking and no drinking permitted. Plus 5.

Jersey Shore Season 6 premiered last night on MTV.

The gang has certainly come a long way since their initial hookups, pranks, fights and hot tub romps of 2009. With a sober Situation and a pregnant Snooki, it's ... different.

Was it still a little bit nuts, and more importantly, fun?

Let's recap Jersey Shore, THG style, and find out!

Snooki is engaged to Jionni LaValle and knocked up. Maybe you heard. Plus 12. Mike went to rehab and has been sober for awhile. Maybe you heard. Plus 10.

A reality show has run its course when the stars are so big that you already know these things. Well, unless you're the Kardashians, then you start making $h!t up. Minus 10.

JWoww and Roger Mathews, Ronnie and Sammi, Pauly and Vinny ... the gang is totally wifing up before our eyes. It's a magical thing, true romance. Plus 25.

Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi recently welcomed her first child, son Lorenzo Dominic LaValle. Now you can meet him on the cover of People!

After more than 24 hours of labor, Snooki gave birth to Lorenzo August 26. Fortunately, she and fiance Jionni LaValle say that choosing a name was easier.

"We were going back and forth, and I just happened to think of Lorenzo," says Jionni, inspired by a child he knew from his hometown. "She loved it."

The little guy's middle name, Dominic, is in memory of Polizzi's uncle (her father's brother), who passed away. "I did it for my dad," 24-year-old Snooki says.

Through it all, the future Mr. and Mrs. Jionni LaValle seem elated and content.

The couple can't say enough about their new baby, and their new life. With Jersey Shore canceled after this coming season, she'll have plenty of time for it.

"It's a different kind of love that I never felt before," she says. "When I got pregnant, everything changed. The partying is long gone. I'm a new person."

Pick up a copy of People today for more pics and Snooki's full interview!

Lorenzo Dominic LaValle's here and the Jersey Shore gang is dishing out the love to new mom Snooki, fiance Jionni LaValle and their bundle of love.

News of Snooki giving birth to the Garden State's youngest guido at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, N.J., Sunday was welcomed joyously.

Here's what her co-stars had to say on Twitter:

Snooki's BFF JWoww: "So proud of @snooki and @JLaValle! Lorenzo is the cutest baby I ever seen. Love him already."

Jersey Shore returns to MTV October 4 for its sixth season. With pregnant Snooki in the house, it'll certainly be different than years past.

Will Snooki be a good mom?

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is officially a mom.

The Jersey Shore star and her fiance, Jionni LaValle, welcomed their baby boy - 6-pound, 5-ounce Lorenzo Dominic LaValle - into the world this morning.

"The world just got another Guido!!!" a Polizzi rep told MTV, which confirmed the baby's arrival moments ago. "Nicole, Jionni & Enzo are doing great!"

Enzo was born at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, N.J. around 3 a.m. Sunday, according to MTV, which congratulated Snooki and Jionni LaValle.

Snooki, Jionni LaValle Engaged!

"We couldn't be happier for Nicole and Jionni on the healthy delivery of their baby boy!" the network said in a statement. "We are looking forward to Lorenzo's first trip to the Jersey Shore and can't wait to see his first animal print onesie."

Jersey Shore will return for a sixth season this fall, and her spinoff Snooki & JWoww has also been picked up for a new season, though it's unclear the extent to which Enzo will appear on either, or whether he has an agent yet.

So there you go. Snooki is a mom. In charge of keeping a small human alive.

The Mayans predicted the world will end 12/21/12 ... turns out they missed by 118 days, not too bad considering the scope of human civilization.

In all seriousness, congratulations to Snooki and Jionni. Welcome Enzo!

UPDATE: A couple of Tweets from Snooki. Sounds like she's on Cloud 9:

  • Snooki Tweet 1

After being denied by several New Jersey towns, Snooki & JWoww have found a new place to live, and the residents of their new town aren't pleased.

495 Productions, the producers of Jersey Shore as well as Snooki & JWoww, had trouble finding a location to film Season 2 of the duo's reality show.

The small town of Manchester stepped up to the plate, though ... much to the chagrin of the Manchester natives who have to live next to them.

Some of their close neighbors say they had no idea Snooki and JWoww were rolling into the small Garden State town 80 miles south of N.Y. City.

When they called the town to complain, they were told the mayor already signed off, so too bad ... for him, the next time he runs for reelection.

Concerned residents were told 495 would go door-to-door to "address the situation," but several neighbors tell us that hasn't actually happened.

What would they say anyway? Meanwhile, with pregnant Snooki ready to pop any second, crew members have been seen setting up equipment.

Say a prayer for Manchester.

Snooki and JWoww will not be welcome in Toms River or Point Pleasant, New Jersey, during the second season of their Jersey Shore spinoff show.

The Point Pleasant Beach Council unanimously voted against a request to tape the Snooki & JWoww there; Toms River negged a similar request.

Guess they gotta need to keep the quota of overly tanned girls with giant fake boobs saying inane things to a minimum ... or at least limit the traffic.

Snooki, JWoww Photo

Season 1 was filmed in Jersey City, N.J., after Hoboken negged them. Jersey Shore itself is filmed in Seaside Heights, further down the Atlantic coast.

Although it doesn't have a location yet, Season 2 of Snooki & JWoww will be an entertaining ride to say the least, given all that should transpire.

"It would probably be up to my labor and [my baby] being born," Snooki told E! News, though she adds that things won't be too intimate.

Thank goodness.

"[Fiancé Jionni Lavelle] wants [the birth] to be private and I totally respect him for that," she said. "But I'm going to record it for myself."

"I want to remember that moment. And I want to show Lorenzo when he's like 16 in front of all his friends and really embarrass him."

At this rate, let's just hope the hot mess can find a hospital that will allow her in the door. Tip: Check in as Nicole Polizzi, not Snooki.

Snooki & JWoww, a half-hour Jersey Shore spinoff, premiered on MTV last night.

It was ... exactly what you think it was. Snooki and JWoww just livin' life!

Of course, we already knew the main storyline coming in, given that the gals are bona fide celebrity gossip staples at this point - Snook's preggers.

Still, not everything about the show, in which the Shore stars move into a Jersey City, N.J., apartment, was telegraphed. Some of it was even funny.

Let's break it down, THG +/- style!

Snooki and JWoww Photo

JWoww, on prepping to put her partying ways behind her and settle down: "I'm 'bout to hit 30 in a coupla years, and that's it." Girl, you're 26. Minus 9.

The scene in which Snooki tells Jenni she's pregnant and engaged was evidently not staged, as JWoww is SURE Nicole is kidding and it's a joke. Plus 50.

"Instead of life throwing me a curveball, it threw me a spermball ... obviously." - Snooki. Clearly written for her by MTV, but still, nice one! Plus 8.

"Jionni proposed and I'm engaged," Nicole Polizzi insists. "I swear!" "No, you're not," Jenni Farley says. "You would've told me!!" She just did! Minus 1.

"Like, who lives in a firehouse?" says Snooki, re: their new digs. Firemen, or reality stars basically. Either way, looks like a pretty cool place, so Plus 5.

JWoww isn't sad about Snooki about being pregnant, just about being late for their apartment hunting and leaving her sitting on a stoop alone. Minus 5.

Plus 20 for the guy ogling the pair out of a car window.
