All Episodes Talk: Jersey Shore Family Vacation

On 4/20/2018 at 1:45 PM, trimthatfat said:

I’m sure the extent of San talking about Ron goes something like this: Ew, what the hell was I thinking?. Ron wants to believe she’s still pining after him despite all of the ladies saying she’s found love with someone else. She turned down what I’m sure was a high offer so she didn’t have to see Ron’s face. Sam wins.

I would bet she turned down the offer because that is what she needed to do to convince herself and the world that she's better than those people.  Her ego could not permit her to go back because that is confirmation that she really is no better or different than the rest of them.  She needs to hold on to something because she is one of the lesser players in this drama, especially when it came to capitalizing financially.  The only thing she has is her umperiousness. 

I'm sure she is loving that they talk about her (especially ron ron).  Her psychology is quite basic- it's a 14 year old hostile mentality.

Or she knew Ron would never let her enjoy her time in peace.  Why take a chance that he'd rage out again and have another go at destroying her stuff.  Sometimes peace of mind is worth everything.

Ego or not, Sam was smart not to return. She really didn’t have anything to gain. Ron has anger issues and just seems generally unpleasant to be around.

I'm sure she passed up a good amount of money.

Either she's in a good place financially or maturity-wise or both.

I would say Sam didn't feel being around Ron was worth any amount of money they were offering her. Good for her.

If I hear Jenni say family one more time about Angelina coming in and she isn't family I am going to lose my mind. Yes, she is an outsider and yes she left. I would have probably left too since they all formed a clique that Angelina wasn't part of. Glad that Mike was giving her advise, but Angelina did need to just leave Jenni alone. I am glad she hit Vinnie because we all do. Vinnie always has to put people down. I am beginning to think Vinnie is a fucking snotty dick, Jenni is too, Ronnie is a cokehead, Snooki needs to be the center of attention and Paulie is the perpetual bachelor. I still like Paulie but I adore Mike now.

The producers are adding more and more people, because they had to have seen how boring this has become.

Sit in hotel, go eat, go to club.  Little squabbles.  Lather/rinse/repeat.

Sure they did similar stuff back on the original show, but there was also dating/hookup drama, roommate drama, drama outside the house.  All of them, except Ron, seem to be very aware of keeping a good image on tv.  Back in the day, they didn't care.  The drama now also seems manufactured. 

I keep remembering what Deena said last season re: Ron.  He'd call Sam even after she'd blocked him (maybe changed her number).  She said Sam really thought one day he'd show up at her house.  I honestly don't think Sam wanted any part of going back and opening that old can of worms.  Good move, because you know Ron would've tried something, and now he's got psycho Jen as part of his permanent baggage.  I think if he did get legal custody paperwork done, she'd still hold that kid over his head.  She doesn't care if she goes to jail - she said that as she was spitting at him.  She gets just as amped up as Ron ever did when she's angry.  She does not think one bit, not even, hey if I get arrested, who is going to take care of my two kids?  I would be glad not to be any part of that drama; Sam could have been pulled in - even if she has zero interest in Ron, Jen would be all up in her face.  I don't think Sam thinks she's better than the others; she was on that smaller reunion series when Ron wasn't on that show.  She wants no part of being around him.  Honestly, after he destroyed all of her stuff, she needed to stay away and not go back.

This season is boooooooring. Last season was at least more entertaining. All this season is them sitting around their hotel room and going out to eat. With some Ron & Jen drama mixed in, and Angelina making an appearance with her scripted drama vs. Jenni.  I guess they realize the show is so boring they now have to bring in other people like Snooki's friend Joey.

Yup. When they announced season two so quickly after the first, I was thinking, "wtf?"

But it's clear they were hoping to bank on Ron and his baby mama providing all the drama. 

Huge fail. Not only in that it can't carry the season, but I don't know anyone who found that enjoyable to watch. It's almost TOO much drama, even by JS standards. 

And I think that little downtime between seasons is a mistake. These are older adults now, with families and obligations. You can see the strain; they are all tired and want to get back to real life.

I enjoyed Miami. The nostalgia was fun. They were all genuinely glad to reconnect. Now all of that has waned and it's seriously boring to watch.

The only thing I enjoyed lately was Pauline and Vinnie making little puppets of each other to carry around. That's totally something I would do.

I don't think this will last many more seasons.. what would they show ? Most of them are married/ engaged/ have kids .. and even though Pauly and Vinny aren't , they don't seem to want to bring randos home anymore ., it's not the jersey shore we all want to watch . The big draw of the original JS was ( as someone posted above ), them not caring about how they looked on camera and just doing the most stupid , outrageous things .. Now they're just too aware of the cameras and Snooki is almost a normal person whereas she used to make the show by being a total shit show .. I get that they grew up and  ( kind of ) matured , but it doesn't make for very interesting reality tv so I just don't see this lasting long .

I'm guessing the way they pick locations for seasons is if they can line up free lodgings and filming rights to all these venues.

So the restaurants and clubs in Vegas are more upscale than the ones they used to go to on the Jersey shore and it's an older crowd.

Of course the cast is older and they may not want to do the things they used to do even just 10 years ago, which was to get really drunk, get into fights, bring groupies home every night.  Or how about the things Snookie used to do, like cartwheels while wearing a dress with no underwear.

But I bet the venues in Vegas said they better not cause fights or anything or else they won't be invited back.  Or trash their suite.

If they have more seasons, it'll probably be similar, a lot more sedate than the JS days.

And the cast probably would no longer settle for a basic shore house, which isn't as posh as the places in Miami and Vegas.  Nor would they bother doing a fake job at a t-shirt store.

Now they're probably not getting paid like they were when JS was at its peak and the cast was going on late night talk shows and such, because it's probably not getting those levels of ratings.

Isn't Planet Hollywood (where they are staying) the same place where Paulie has his regular DJ residency.

^Interestingly, no.  He had a long term residency (like 5 years) at Harrah's.  More recently, he spent the Summer spinning at Drai's Beach.

Planet Hollywood has appeared on a few shows lately, Vanderpump Rules & Jersey Shore among them.  They must be offering ridiculous comps for all that exposure.

They don’t like Angelina because she bailed after episode one.  She probably thought Jersey Shore would be a shit reality show and end up like Washington Heights....cancelled after one short season.  That probably would have happened, had Snooki not been punched in the face and suddenly people were watching Jersey Shore.

Now Angelina realizes she missed out on money and fame and probably feels a bit foolish.  The rest of them probably feel like she’s just riding their coattails.

I noticed how often Angelina looked at the cameras.

Angelina is really gross and immature. She and Ronnie act like they haven't matured a day since the first season. I don't know why she thought it was a good idea to antagonize Jenni or to try to befriend her by acting like a thirteen year old. Just so dumb and obnoxious. I don't understand how Jenni and Nicole are such close friends outside the show but Snooki doesn't treat her very well onscreen. I know jwow overreacted to the mothers day video (let it go!) but damn, Nicole doesn't seem to have her back of even care aboit her feelings. I realize Nicole didn't invite Angelina, production did but at least give ur supposed best friend a heads up. I think they should ditch Angelina and Deena and Ronnie and add Roger to the cast. I love him.

Why is Angelina asking Jenni to fix her a drink?  Angelina was fricking bartender who “does great things.”   Can’t stand her, never could, quit trying to mix in.

Either the producers told her to do many of these things or they chose to air there scenes.

I guess whatever caused antagonism, had the potential to boil over into fights or yelling.

Yup Angelina is probably kicking herself for leaving. Snooki and Jwoww live in NJ mansions now and don't have to work.

Everything's pretty much been said about the Ron/Jen drama, so I'll just say that JWoww looked amazing in that red dress when they went to dinner. Also I love her glasses, don't know why she gets so much criticism for them, I think they look cute on her. Mike and his food love are adorable. The Pauly/Vinnie bromance is mildly amusing. Angelina, eh.

That's all I got.

Yea and Angelina is coming off very thirsty for the camera . Her personality is awful but I'm sure she's putting a lot of it on as an interview for the producers . Right now she's still a guest spot and hoping the other people being mature/ boring will help her stay long term .

mike did have a show, but it was his family. i think a show maybe on Food Network, would be really really great. he loves to eat! but he doesnt gross me out when he eats like alot of food network/food shows do. it could be him cooking and going to places to eat. i think if he traveled around to just a couple cities to the nicer restaurants and than cooked at home, it would be a very watchable show. he just gets so happy when he eats. vs the people who are like "let me shove this giant greasy cheese burger in my mouth" types.

My GAWD, can we please do away with the gay BFF? Sidebar, I'm gay too, so I'm not coming from a place of either "I can make jokes because I'm a dentist- Seinfeld",  or "that's wrong"...that said, I don't think any of the JS family have inclinations unless (Snooki, JWoww, Deena) they do, which fine...but your very BASIC gay guy rolling up all "hey gurrrl"...enough. Quit making our community a mockery, thanks. Snooki is no SJP & whoever the guy was is no Stanford.

Thank you! And YES! He was obnoxious.  Also, his hitting on Ron and Mike was horrible.  Whenever things like that happen, I think "how would people feel if gender roles were reversed?"  So, if, for example, it was Ron always going up to Jenni and rubbing on her body after she has repeatedly asked him to stop, how would people react?  They'd hit the roof.  Or, if Angelina were saying to him, "yeah, if you saw me naked in the shower, your'd get aroused", people would be irritated.  I also can't stand people who always have to be the center of attention at all times like Joey so that really added to my irritation, but the fact that he is awalking stereotype who helps paint the entire community negatively really was irritating.

I think Jenni was right. Her and Snooki aren't that good of friends and to me thry never really were. Snooki has to be the center of attention and is all about herself and is selfish to me. Jenni is more laid back and just isn't into that scene anymore and Snooki just keeps putting on a show to get money and Jenni just doesn't want to go along with it anymore and go do her own thing. Their friendship was to make ratings and be drunk and it doesn't work anymore now that they both have kids and are married and Jenni is beginning to see that Snooki hasn't been a good friend. I've had friends like that and you just realize that you let them go because they are only about thenselves.

The girl is desperate. That was a lot of money she lost out on the first go round. She has to cement her place w the cast again in the off chance Jersey Shore pops off again.

I used to feel bad for Angelina, that she was mistreated by the cast and got an unfair rap. My opinion has changed. She really is gross, arrogant (though it's a facade because she clearly feels like an underdog with the cast), and tries waaaaay to hard to be shocking/crazy/interesting. It could be producer driven but it's probably not too far from the truth because no one likes her in real life either. I bet her boyfriend (fiance?) gave her permission to do whatever it took to get screen time. She didn't say a word about what he would think about getting  up on Pauly.

I can't believe I even watch this show at 40 years old ? I do love trashy TV.

Random questions, but can you pls ask your friend if he smelled good? Also, can she gauge how tall he really is? 

Pauly strikes me as a “quality fragrance guy” and in my opinion. that alone makes a guy 10 times hotter.

I’m so happy to hear he was nice. Rude celebs can suck it. 

Your friend gets 10 bonus points for “stalking his ass down” because I would’ve done the same exact thing! 

Thanks in advance to you and your BFF. I hope she makes that photo her holiday card this year!

@Nic330 I agree with what you are saying.  I think part of it was because it was shorter (which I get since Snooki and Jenni both have families to tend to back home), and also the interlopers (crazy Jen and Joey).  I include Angelina in that group.  If they do another installment, I would prefer the core 7 returning to Seaside or some other shore location, maybe even with their significant others and kids for part of it.  The reality is, they have grown up and moved on so I’d rather see that reality and dynamic.

The cast/ producers are just grasping at straws at this point . None of them are into it . If not for Ronnie , there would be absolutely no drama.. just watching them go out to eat basically . Pauly just wants to be DJing and making money elsewhere , Snookie and Jwow want to be home with their family , mike wants to be eating at home with his fiancé and Vinny really never seemed like he wanted to be there from the beginning . And all of that is fine except they're trying to sell us that they all want to be on " vacation " together and we all know they'd rather be anywhere else . Except Ronnie . I'm sure this is a nice escape for him .
