NJ Towns Say Hell No To ‘Jersey Shore’ Spinoff
Despite the promise of a marked increase in booze sales at local watering holes, two New Jersey towns have refused to allow Jersey Shore‘s spinoff Snooki and JWoww to sully their good names.
495 Productions has been scoping NJ locations where Nicole Polizzi, who is due to give birth soon, and her best friend Jenny Farley can film their second season. Season one was filmed at an apartment in Jersey City.
The Point Pleasant Beach Council unanimously denied a request by the production company to bring the ladies to town, as did Toms River. Both towns were presumably scoped out for their eagle-eyed Child Protective Services.
Glutton-for-punishment Seaside Heights, the town which has suffered through four out of six seasons of Jersey Shore (save the ones filmed in Miami and Florence), said Snooki and JWoww is always welcome back to film there. That would suit Point Pleasant Beach’s mayor, who huffed to the Asbury Park Press newspaper:
"Seaside gave birth to them and that’s where they need to stay. That’s the kind of publicity Seaside wants. It’s not the publicity we want. We are a family tourist destination. That’s what we want to cultivate."
A family tourist destination? Doesn’t he know Snooki is about to become a mom?
