(PIX11) — After Superstorm Sandy and disagreements with the show’s Shore neighbors, a New Jersey judge has decided to allow for another season of “Snooki & JWOWW” to be filmed in the Garden State.
The Jersey Shore — specifically Pelican Island in Seaside Heights — was hit hard by Sandy. Of the 140 homes in the small town, only a quarter are habitable.
So is it really appropriate to bring in a reality show into a town that’s rebuilding after tragedy? Residents have gotten angry and protested the show more than once.
Jersey locals had made legal attempts to keep the show far from their town, even requesting an injunction to stop 495 Productions from working at Snooki and JWoww’s house in Pelican Island. A judge has denied that injuction.
The Seaside Heights Business administrator reported that the show will film in two locations: one house in Berkeley with the original cast and the other in Seaside Heights.
Lori Tyska, who lives a block away from the Berkeley house, said “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.”
But another resident, Laura Biondo said “I’m fine with it. We may have to check out what is going on down there,” she said.
