'Jersey Shore' Cast

Under QUARANTINE

in Seaside

6/24/2011 6:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The "Jersey Shore" cast is on lockdown ... as they wait to start shooting Season 5 in NJ next week -- which means no phones, no Internet, no friends, no family, no nothing.

Sources connected with the show tell TMZ ... producers want to keep the cast "in the zone" after coming back from Italy.  Translation:  If they started circulating again in New Jersey with friends, family, and the media, they'd lose the chemistry that makes the show work, and it takes time to get it back.

So given that Season 5 starts shooting on Monday, we're told producers felt it was better to just keep them away from everyone.

But there are always exceptions to the rule. Sammi, Deena, and Pauly D had prior engagements they had booked that could not be canceled -- the girls had commercial shoots and Pauly had a DJ gig in Vegas.

So producers gave the trio a weekend pass to show up at their gigs and come back no later than Sunday night.

I can't wait to see the foolery(hangs head in shame). Sammi should change her nickname from "sweet heart" to "sour".

MTV is taking this a little too serious, I mean I know they give them good ratings (God knows why) but really?

If the mere sight of these people doesn't make you nauseous, then something is probably wrong with you.

What a coincidence! I've decided to keep myself "in the zone" by avoiding all contact with the cast of the Jersey Shore. I probably shouldn't have read this. DAMN!

I feel so bad for the rest of the cast having to be locked up a whole week with Ron & Sammi.

Well, I guess I'm staying out of Seaside again until they leave. We used to go to Seaside every weekend, then at least every month off season. Since the Jersey Shore garbage started I haven't even been interested to go there anymore. It's really sad, because we used to have so much fun. Now we go to Atlantic City or Wildwood. Unfortunately, Wildwood is 3 hrs away for us, so we don't go that often :/ (and Point Pleasant is way too small + crowded during the summer).

They should be kept under quarentine forever. Give the rest of the world a break.

It is going to be so great when they dump these trolls after this season and realize that any drunk lowlife party animals will bring in big ratings at a fraction of the cost.

Does anybody watch this dumb show? And that Snooki thing is as about as ugly as that Octomom. She makes me puke when I see her.
