If MTV’s hit show “Jersey Shore” has shown the world anything, it is that there is next to nothing that cannot be shown on television. The show is an amalgamation of young excesses. Debauchery, crudeness, rudeness, drunkenness, philandering, promiscuity, and other offensive behavior reigns supreme on the show and apparently works as a draw. And if that is what is setting the hook in audiences, Tuesday evening’s episode, complete with altercation and fight between Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, should serve to pull in viewers for episodes to come. The Season 2 DVD set will also no doubt have a hook as well, such as never-before-seen footage, because, as Radar Online reported Friday, what was seen on “Jersey Shore,” complete with hair pulling, cursing, and punching, was nowhere near as bad as it actually got when JWoww Farley and Sammi Giancola went at it.
An anonymous source told Radar Online that there were several occurrences in the JWoww and Sammi fight that never made it to the televised version. Newest cast member Angelina Pivarnic originally attempted to stop the fight but was attacked from behind and hit in the back of the head. She never found out who hit her and the footage was not broadcast.
Ronnie Magro, Sammi Giancola’s tomcatting boyfriend (still unbeknownst to Sammi in the timeline of the show, but a recent reunion get-together saw Sammi clued into Magro’s ways), jumped in to help his girlfriend. Although his intervention was shown, some of the action was not.
Ronnie scratched JWoww’s face, which was not shown. Radar Online’s insider noted that JWoww’s face was swollen later from the scratch and the blows she suffered from the fists of Sammi Giancola.
Even little Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi entered the fray to help her pal JWoww by stopping Ronnie. “Snooki got hurt,” the source said. “She was trying to jump in and help Jenni, and got elbowed in the ribs. She was really sore and bruised after the fight.”
The insider added, “This was one of the worst fights on the show and caused a rift between the whole group for a long time.”
The show has been no stranger to violence. During the first season, Snooki Polizzi got punched in a bar. And even when they’re not physical, the castmembers often engage in various forms of verbal altercations and abusive language.
The cast isn’t averse to violence off the set, either. Snooki became so abusive in an altercation on July 30 at the beach where “Jersey Shore” is filmed, Seaside Heights police were called in. She was arrested. She pleaded guilty to In handing down her sentence, the judge told her she was acting like a “Lindsay Lohan wannabe.”
But “Jersey Shore” fans shouldn’t fret about the missing footage from the most recent episode. There is little doubt that the forthcoming Season 2 DVD set will include the fight footage.
