Italy Trip Delayed for ‘Jersey Shore’ Cast (PHOTOS)

Snooki and friends bid farewell to the Jersey Shore this weekend, and attempted to travel across the pond to begin filming in Italy … but they didn’t make it very far. 

According to the New York Post, the country has revoked some of the MTV show’s permits to film the reality show. The guido and guidette cast members were headed to Newark Airport before receiving news that it may take as long as a week before they’ll make it to Europe. According to Radar Online, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio and Vinny Guadagnino had already been taped with their suitcases heading to the airport.  

This isn’t the first speed bump the highly anticipated show has run into…

Back in April, Gawker and several other media outlets published a list of guidelines for the Jersey Shore roommates that was reportedly from Mayor Matteo Renzi that was released to an Italian newspaper. The alleged rules read:

  • The cast will not be filmed in bars and clubs that serve alcohol.
  • The cast will not be filmed drinking in public.
  • The show will not be filmed to promote Florence as a drinking town.
  • The show should be filmed in a manner to promote Italy (not Americans visiting Italy) and feature its culture and good food.
