SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. (AP) - The cast members of MTV's "Jersey
Shore" had fun in Italy, but they're glad to get back to their
home facing the surf and sand of the real Jersey shore.
The young partiers traveled to Florence, Italy, to film the
fourth season, which premiers Thursday night.
Cast members met with reporters at their home in Seaside Heights
on Thursday. They say being stuck with each other around the clock
in a foreign country led to some major brawls. But they say they
remain as close as family.
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino says he recognized elements of
his own heritage when he saw how Italians talk with their hands and
stage elaborate meals.
The cast finished filming the fifth season in Seaside Heights on
Tuesday. Those programs will air later in the year.
