Seaside Heights, N.J.’s most famous summertime residents put the mess in “hot mess” on Monday night’s episode of Jersey Shore.
It was the one fans have been expecting since news broke in July that an intoxicated Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi had been arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, creating a public nuisance and annoying people on a beach, which is a crime in the Garden State.
But there were other cringe-worthy moments to make you squirm or laugh out loud, depending on your taste for reality TV:
• Snooki, who appeared intoxicated for most of the episode, threw herself at Vinny, begging for him to sleep with her. At one point Vinny said he was willing until he smelled the alcohol on her breath and kicked her out of bed.
• Deena jumped in the sack with Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and was similarly rejected. Later, she was drinking before all the roommates headed to Karma, where she said she just wanted to dance. But instead of showing off her moves, she flashed the club – and the cameras – as her skirt came up when she fell off the stage. Deena was eventually kicked out of the club for being too drunk.
• Upstairs at Karma, JWoww couldn’t make it down the steps in her heels, so she decided to pee on the floor behind the vacant bar and poured water over it to dilute the smell.
• The next day, Snooki woke up with a hangover and started sneaking beers at work. When her boss sent her out for coffee to sober up, she got shots instead. That was the beginning of the downward spiral that ended with the reality star in handcuffs.
