The upcoming season of “Jersey Shore” has run into further trouble, just as we predicted a few weeks ago. Right at the last moment, with bags packed and some of the stars at the airport ready to jet off to Italy, the whole series was once again put in jeopardy in a further argument over filming permits.
The “Jersey Shore” cast’s trip to Italy has been postponed indefinitely until filming permits are worked out.
The production team have already rented an amazing townhouse in Florence, and at this rate, it looks like all the scenes will be there! Florence’s Mayor, Matteo Renzi, is cracking down on where shooting can take place.
He had already barred the “Jersey Shore” cast from being filmed drinking in public. So that cuts out the majority of shots we are used to seeing of the likes of Snookie, The Situation and Pauly D.
Now it has been reported that permits for shooting at some of the city’s most famous landmarks, including the Uffizi gallery and Palazzo Vecchio, have been yanked.
The Situation, Pauly D and Vinny were already filmed arriving at the airport with their suitcases. Now they are being told that their trip to Italy will have to wait, if it ever takes place at all!
What do you make of all this fuss over permits? Is “Jersey Shore” a bad advert for a city as Florence’s mayor fears? Or is he being a party pooper? Perhaps more importantly, should the “Jersey Shore” production team scrap the whole Florence idea and keep the Jersey Shore gang at home?
