'Jersey Shore's' Italian Fourth Season Is Delayed Again: Mayor of Florence Says 'Uffa' to Snooki's Pouf-a!

Everyone’s favorite guidos and guidettes are having trouble being welcomed back to their ‘motherland.’

Season Four of MTV’s hit reality show, Jersey Shore, is postponed yet again, due to conflicts with the Mayor of Florence, Matteo Renzi

There is already an established set of rules that must be observed, including no drinking in public and no filming in bars. According to Radaronline, permits have recently been revoked by the mayor to film at several important Florence landmarks like the Uffizi gallery and Palazzo Vecchio (the town hall of Florence). Will they have to sit in their townhouse and take shots with each other?

The cast’s Italian heritage isn’t buying them any favors when it comes to filming there. (We use “Italian” loosely: Snooki Polizzi is, of course, of Chilean extract. And J-WoWW is Irish-Spanish.)

There have been criticisms in the past over how the show depicts Italian-Americans in a seriously negative light, i.e. constant partying, swearing and fist-pumping that we’ve come to expect, so it’s no surprise that Italy isn’t exactly thrilled over the cast’s arrival.

Prior to these issues, filming was delayed because cast members demanded bigger raises. The eight core members of the group will reportedly pull in $100,000 per episode in the upcoming season.

$100,000 per episode? That is outrageously disgusting.
