2 NJ Towns Reject ‘Snooki & JWoww’ Taping Requests
POINT PLEASANT BEACH, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – The Jersey shore town that is trying to close its bars early and restricts overnight parking has said no to “Snooki & JWoww.”
The Point Pleasant Beach Council unanimously voted against 495 Productions’ request to tape the “The Jersey Shore” spinoff featuring Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jennifer “JWoww” Farley.
The request said the cast would be living outside the town.
Councilman William Mayer told the Asbury Park Press “it’s not what we need at this point.”
The state’s top liquor regulator is blocking the town from imposing a midnight bar closing. The time and overnight parking restrictions are designed to reduce noise near the beachfront.
Nearby Toms River also turned down the MTV reality series.
“Snooki & JWoww,” which premiered in June 2012, taped its first season in Jersey City.
