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!

Sammi Giancola, a.k.a. Sweetheart, said in one of the earliest Jersey Shore quotes that she is the sweetest b!tch you will ever meet. We beg to differ.

Popping some chick twice in the face at a Miami nightclub doesn't exactly seem like a "Sweetheart" move to us, but maybe it was done out of love?

The incident supposedly happened last month, and according to law enforcement officials, Sammi is in the clear - but only because she left town just in time.

The Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office says the case of Giancola's flying fists of alcohol-fueled fury is closed because, well, there's no one to arrest.

Sammi 'Sweetheart'

NO SWEETHEART: Sammi is at the center of the latest Jersey Shore fight.

"As a matter of policy, we do not file charges involving misdemeanor crimes when the accused is beyond [our] jurisdiction," an office spokesman said.

However, if Giancola ever shows her face in Miami again? According to the State Attorney, "This case could be revisited if and when the accused returns."

Scratch Miami off the list of cities in consideration for Season 3 then.

Last season, Sammi's hothead BF Ronnie Magro became notorious for fights on the show. Seriously, the dude would throw down at a moment's notice.

A couple of absolute tools continue to seek some form of justice.

The fist-pumping Jersey Shore cast members are under fire again for putting said fists where they don't belong. Two South Florida attorneys are filing assault charges - not against one of the dudes, but against Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola.

No wonder MTV is replacing the cast.

The 22-year-old star reportedly got into a fight while at Club Dream on South Beach on May 8. Kristin DeMinco was the woman on the receiving end.

DeMinco's attorneys say she was assaulted and punched twice in the face by Giancola while in the club. "She saw me talking to him," Deminco said.

"Asked why I was talking to her boyfriend. She was jealous I guess that I was talking to him. I was like, you can calm down ... we are just talking."

Sammi Giancola Pic

She cleans up nice, but Sammi's got a temper!

Look, you don't want to even be accused of hitting on Ronnie Magro.

"I wasn't trying to hit on him," she maintains. "She exchanged bad words at me. I exchanged some bad words back. She hit me twice in the face."

Then the Guidos/ettes who gained reality TV fame in Seaside Heights, N.J., supposedly took part in another fight, getting 'em kicked out of the club.

They lawsuit is the latest in what has become a trend of Jersey Shore cast members getting into physical altercations for increased television ratings.

Just last week, a New Jersey judge agreed to hear a lawsuit claiming Jersey Shore producers encouraged cast members to provoke fights for publicity.

Detestable and possibly criminal? Sure. But entertaining stuff. Season Two premieres July 29! Let the fights and Jersey Shore quotes commence!

"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.

It's official. Jersey Shore stars Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola and Ronnie "I Get in Fights and Call People Gay Slurs" Magro are done. Like, for good this time.

Well, until tomorrow when they get back together.

The couple's famously tumultuous relationship, which any viewer of the show or celebrity gossip sites is familiar with, recently broke up again. And it's ugly.

“Ronnie and Sammi are no longer together,” a source close to them says. “They got so angry that when they were in Vegas on March 6 that they demanded separate rooms, separate tables and wanted to be separate at all events.”

As if that weren't enough, Ronnie Magro is taking to Twitter in a bid to torture Sammi: “Ronnie’s new thing is posting GTS on Twitter, which means GYM TAN SMUSH [sex]. He keeps maliciously putting it in his Tweets to upset her.”

Ronnie, Sammi and Pauly

Ronnie and Sammi in happier times. Just ignore Pauly D's hair.

GTS, of course, is a play on GTL (gym, tan, laundry), one of The Situation quotes most often repeated in the months since Season 1 of Jersey Shore aired.

Thursday morning, Ronnie Tweeted, “Early morning GTS.. Busy day gonna be crazy....” Following up a while later with, “@Sn00ki ... Come on Snooki u can never GTS to much (u kno that lol)... wooooo... 2 weeks, You ready? bc im not.”

That about sums it up right there.

“I’m sure he still has feelings for her because he is trying so hard to make her jealous,” the source says. “Ronnie is acting like he hates her, but I think it’s still love, you know those two things can be interchangeable a lot of the time.”

One thing is for certain? Season 2 rumbles!

“The new season is going to have a crazy amount of jealousy, you never know Sammi might even hook up with Mike this season," the source says. "Drama."

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.

Get ready for a second season packed with house music, fist-pumping, trash bags, fighting with strangers on the boardwalk, and hilarious Jersey Shore quotes.

MTV's only newest hit show is coming back for Season 2!

The network, which had been engaged in some heated negotiations with the Jersey Shore cast, will run it back this summer with all the original stars on hand.

We can't wait for a new dose of DJ Pauly D, The Situation, Snooki, J-WOWW, Sammi, Ronnie and Vinny, although it looks like they'll be in a different setting.

That's right, Seaside Heights lucked out. The gang will “escape the cold Northeast and find themselves in a new destination,” MTV said in a Friday statement.

Warm weather locales, consider yourself forewarned.

The Cast of Jersey Shore

FIST-PUMP! All seven of these guidos and guidettes will be back on MTV.

MTV continued: “Our audience fell in love with Jersey Shore and its amazing cast who have really grown together as a family. That bond gives the show its heart."

"We’re thrilled to reunite these friends to bring fans what they love - laughs, love, drama and of course, GTL,” the network's president said in the announcement.

That would be gym, tanning and laundry - the daily routine of The Situation.

In case you didn't get your fix throughout December/January, MTV will broadcast the Jersey Bowl, a February 7 marathon of Season 1, on Super Bowl Sunday.

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."
