Snooki & JWoww Heading Back to the Jersey Shore?

She may be a mother now, but that isn’t stopping Snooki from revisiting her Jersey Shore beginning…

The 25-year-old Chilean American reality television personality and her co-star, fellow Latina JWoww, may return to their home base on the Jersey Show for the next installment of their spin-off series.

Snooki & JWoww

MTV hasn’t confirmed it yet, but town officials have revealed that the two will film the third season of Snooki & JWoww in two shore towns; at a home in the Pelican Island section of Berkeley and a residence in Seaside Heights.

Seaside Heights Business Administrator John A. Camera says the show’s producers, 495 Productions, have paid a $25 film permit fee for a “pretty light filming schedule at that address. It seems like it is a very small production and we are not looking at much need for security at this point.”

Some local residents aren’t too pleased that the women are back on the Jersey Shore. Berkeley Township Council President James Byrnes said, “We don’t even have time for this nonsense. We don’t need another distraction right now,” as the town continues to rebuild after being hit by Hurricane Sandy.

New mom Snooki has hit back at Byrnes, tweeting, “Don’t worry James Byrnes,we won’t be a ‘distraction’towards you&the community,i have a family just like everyone else that enjoys the shore.”

Resident Lori Tyska, who lives a block away from the Berkeley house, agreed with Byrnes, “It is crazy to do it here. … Many of us have just moved back to the area or are in the process of trying to get our homes rebuilt.” On the contrary, Laura Biondo stated, “I’m fine with it. We may have to check out what is going on down there.”

The new season of Snooki & JWoww will still follow Snooki as she continues motherhood and JWoww enjoying her engagement and preparing to head to the altar.
