Last night, the cast of Jersey Shore got into a major bar fight. Snooki wasn’t there, thank goodness, and Deena, Vinny, and Sam didn’t join in, but the rest of them? They threw down. They threw down hard.
From Us Weekly:
A source tells Us Weekly several members of the MTV cast — including Jenni “JWoww” Farley and her boyfriend Rodger Mathews, Pauly “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino — were involved in a “massive” bar brawl Friday night at Seaside Heights hotspot Bamboo Bar.
“It started as a small fight, then turned into a massive brawl,” the insider shares. “Jenni’s boyfriend beat up a few guys, Pauly knocked some guy out, [and] Ronnie [and] Sitch were all there as well, fighting off guys. Jenni sprained her ankle. It was rough.”
Explains the source, “These drunk guys saw the cameras and started taunting the girls. Then, they started bothering Ronnie, Vinny, The Sitch, and Pauly.”
Though the boys tried to ignore the instigators, “They came back and got in their faces,” the insider reveals. “Rodger and Ryan [Labbe, from MTV’s The Pauly D Project] stepped up and all hell broke loose.”
At that point, “It became a club-wide brawl . . . Ronnie, Sitch, Ryan, Rodger and Pauly were fighting five guys, and bouncers too . . . Jenni was fighting with the guys.”
As for Vinny Guadagnino? “He was [hanging] with the girls,” the source says. “He’s a lover, not a fighter.”
And just in case you need more proof, here’s a picture from today of JWoww on crutches:
I definitely believe that this story is true. I mean, the fight is obviously true, but I totally buy that it started because some douchebags saw the cameras and wanted a few minutes of fame. A similar thing happened when they were in Italy – they had to leave a bar because so many people were yelling at them and taunting them – and besides, the guys have already talked to a lawyer. They’re planning on suing the Jersey Shore guys, the bar, Viacom, and MTV. Apparently what happened in their version is that Ronnie punched a guy for absolutely no reason, then a bouncer put the guy in a headlock so Ronnie could punch him some more. Then I guess JWoww fell down some stairs or whatever. Yeah, sounds totally plausible.
It looks like this next season is going to be interesting after all, huh?
