Jersey Shore Cast- Where are they now?
Jersey Shore, an MTV reality show, was very popular for seven seasons. In addition to introducing the world to guidos and guidettes and several phrases of questionable taste, the show has spawned several spinoffs. Let’s find out what these reality stars are up to today.
“Snooki”, Nicole Polizzi, 26, is 7-months pregnant with her second baby with fiancé Jionni LaValle. Their first son is 2-year old Lorenzo. When we first met Snooki on Jersey Shore, she was a drunk, crazy klutz. Snooki today is more refined, toned, slimmed down and a busy mother. She stars with Jwoww in the spin-off series, Snooki & Jwoww, which recently ended its third season.
Pauly D‘s spinoff show, The Pauly D Project lasted one season. After that project, Pauly D was DJing in Las Vegas when he had a one-night stand with Amanda Markert (DTF), a former Hooter’s waitress. As a result of that encounter, Pauly is the father of a one-year old daughter whom he did not know existed until she was five months old and whom he did not meet until seven months after that. After working out custody and child support issues, Pauly D is content seeing his little girl on weekends, although he would like to see her more often.
Like her castmates before her, Jenni, “Jwoww” Farley is in a family way. She is expecting a baby girl with her fiance, Roger Matthews. Jenni has shared with fans many details of her pregnancy, including sonograms and craving updates but will not film the delivery. She complained to HollywoodLife.com, “I really can’t wait for her to come out. I’ve hated every second of it, it was awful… So, I just try to take it with a grain of salt again and keep moving. I’m excited for the actual outcome.” She costars with girlfriend, Snooki in Snooki & Jwoww.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is known for his buff body, but a serious bout with kidney stones in 2013 required him to be hospitalized. During the illness, his muscles atrophied, but, now, he’s back in shape. He attributes his shape-up to, “Weight, cardio and abs 5-6 times a week.” Also, diet, “If it tastes good don’t eat it lol.”
Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola has dyed her hair black and gone into the fashion business. Sweetheart Styles is her aptly named online boutique, where one can find “everything Sammi Sweetheart.”
Former Jersey Shore star, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was charged with simple assault after a fist fight with his brother, Frank, over management style in the New Jersey tanning salon they co-own. Mike was seen walking out of the salon with a huge shiner and scratches on his neck. The week before, salon employees had called police about bounced paychecks. Apparently, too much G and not enough T going on at Boca Tanning Salon.
