Ever since Jersey Shore gave its final fist pump in December 2012, my life has felt a little less full. Of course, I watched Snooki & JWoww and loved every second, but it just wasn't the same as seeing all of the Jersey Shore gems gymming, tanning, laundering, partying, dancing, fighting, cooking, and laughing on a weekly basis. Needless to say, I'm clamoring for a reunion. And lucky me, it sounds like a reunion is not not in the cards. At the premiere of Logo reality series Fire Island, E! News talked to three Jersey Shore stars about whether or not a reunion special will ever happen. Though they’ve all moved on from the series, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, and Vinny Guadagnino all seemed pretty on board with the idea. Most of ‘em have reunited multiple times offscreen already, so why not get the crew back together for the MTV cameras?
So, if a Jersey Shore reunion were to happen, what might it entail? JWoww shared the cast’s idea with E! News. The cast’s truly delightful and truly realistic idea. She said,
“Me and the cast mates from 'Jersey Shore' talk all the time about this, and we always said that we would take a nice vacation with each other for like 10 to 14 days. Nothing more because we'd end up killing each other. And if we're married or have kids, they'd have to be there because we can't miss them! But no more than, like, 14 days because we'd probably go back to our old ways. I'm old now, I can't handle a hangover like I did."
The Jersey Shore angels plus a vacation plus their families? Sounds perfect, I would watch. Especially if they went to Miami. And stayed in the Season 2 Miami abode. And broke the Season 2 closet again. And brought the Seaside Heights duck phone to the Season 2 house. Look, I re-watched several episodes of Season 2 a few weekends ago (shoutout to MTV Classic) and I have yet to move on. What a gorgeous season of television.
Also? “I'm old now, I can't handle a hangover like I did” warmed every last cockle of my heart.
