NJ judge allows taping of Snooki MTV series

 

BERKELEY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) – A judge won't stop production of the MTV reality show “Snooki & JWoww” in a New Jersey shore town that's rebuilding from Superstorm Sandy.

Berkeley Township officials and residents fear taping of the “Jersey Shore” spinoff could hinder recovery efforts.

Attorney Ron Gasiorowski tells the Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/1d0MHIB ) he's not pleased with the ruling. But the lawyer says the judge has not ruled on his argument that the production violates the town's zoning ordinance.

The property owner is seeking a variance after the town notified him that the home is in an area zoned for residential use.

Neighbor Rocco Vita says tourists haven't flocked to the home during taping. He says the cast says hello and security is very friendly.

    We are left wondering where Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union are going to get hitched at the end of next month. A peek of the invite leaked on TMZ says to “put on your dancing shoes” for a “throw down.” An enclosed note with blacked-out words tells guests to meet up at a hotel, where they will be transported to the wedding site. If they prefer to drive, attendees are directed to call a number for instructions on how to get to the venue that is “45 to 50 minutes south of South Beach.” Um, the Biltmore? Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne? Private estate? Your guess is as good as ours.
