'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation' Returns for Season 4 ... Filming in Bubble? Yeeaah, Buddy!!!

Exclusive

The coronavirus pandemic brought most TV and film production to a halt, but "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" is NOT one of them ... as the gang powered through in a bubble.

Pauly D, Vinny, Ronnie, JWOWW, Deena, Angelina and The Situation managed to shoot season 4 ... which will kick off on MTV with back-to-back episodes on November 19. This season's unique in that it'll also include the cast's extended family members staying in the bubble with them. Hence the new title ... "Jersey Shore 'Bring the Family' Vacation."

We're told the entire cast and crew shot in Nevada, taking over an entire resort to create a good 'ol "Shore bubble." Production adhered to local, state and federal COVID-19 health and safety requirements to get it done.

It'll be interesting to see how season 4 plays out after the explosive ending from the previous season. True GTL-ers will remember Snookie apparently quit the show ... following Angelina's wedding drama and the so-called "speech heard 'round the world." Long story short, Snookie, Deena and JWOWW took shots at Angelina while toasting her ... AT HER WEDDING!!!

It seems season 4 will center around the guys trying to reunite the women of 'Jersey Shore.'

Good luck, fellas!!!

Jen Harley & Chad Johnson Vegas Make Out Session ... Jen says Chad set her up

Exclusive
GOOD COMPANY
TMZ.com

8:12 AM PT -- Jen's rep tells TMZ, her client was set up by Chad, saying, "Jen Harley is not dating Chad or anyone for that matter. Jen is only friends with Chad and had met up with him to show him a house earlier that day for sale."

The rep goes on to say, "Jen had not had anything to eat all day, she was drinking alcohol at the club and was extremely intoxicated. Jen does not remember anything in the video and is disgusted and embarrassed by her actions. Jen feels she was set up by Chad and his friends who were clearly taking videos to sell to the press."

Here's a match made in heaven Sin City -- former 'Bachelorette' star Chad Johnson and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's baby mama, Jen Harley, have hooked up in Las Vegas ... and it's on video.

Chad -- the reality TV star turned aspiring porn mogul, who's sporting an appropriate mustache -- and Jen were all over each other Thursday night at JING ... in a scene that looked like it could be a teaser for an adult film.

The 2 threw masks and social distancing to the wind as they made out multiple times in front of friends and everyone else at the joint ... and Jen even gave Chad a lap dance.

As you can see.. they kept the PDA going outside the restaurant later on.

Strangely enough, we're told the 2 met through Ronnie ... Chad used to be buddies with the "Jersey Shore" star. Chad and Jen apparently hit it off recently at a lunch.

It's an interesting pairing for sure, but perhaps not surprising. Jen has had a volatile relationship with Ronnie for a few years now ... and Chad recently had a serious domestic issue with his ex-girlfriend as well.

Both Chad and Ronnie recently copped plea deals in their separate domestic violence cases.

Exclusive

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and his ex Jen Harley might seem like they're giving their toxic relationship another shot, but their friends can breathe easy ... instead of reuniting, they're being responsible adults.

The "Jersey Shore" star was out and about with Jen and their daughter, Ariana, Wednesday in Huntington Beach, but we've learned it's not a sign of a rekindled romance. Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... Ronnie and Jen are having family outings from time to time now, but only for Ariana.

We're told they took the last few months to get in a good place as co-parents and friends, and they've figured out it's healthier for the entire family to remain friendly and support their kid.

Ronnie had a restraining order against Jen, but it was dissolved in May after they came to a mutual agreement they no longer need it ... according to court docs.

It doesn't end there ... Ronnie also has to complete a 52-week domestic violence program at a court-approved agency in Nevada. He's also been ordered to only have peaceful contact with Jen Harley and obey the 3-year protective order issued in the case.

As you know ... Ortiz-Magro was initially busted for kidnapping back in October 2019 after allegedly striking Jen, wielding a knife, taking their daughter from her and then locking himself inside an Airbnb they were renting in L.A.

When cops arrived, Ronnie allegedly refused to come out so they had to bust in and tase him before placing him under arrest.

Harley allegedly suffered bruises and scrapes in the altercation, and a neighbor's surveillance footage shows her looking scared as she held Ariana and hid behind a car.

THE SECURITY FOOTAGE

Ronnie denied the allegations, but he was still facing 7 misdemeanor charges -- domestic violence, child endangerment, brandishing a weapon, criminal threats, false imprisonment, and 2 counts of resisting arrest. But, this is now all behind him ... as long as he keeps his nose clean.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro Catches Tiny Break In Domestic Violence Case

Exclusive

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has won a battle in his domestic violence case but there's still a full war to settle.

Prosecutors dropped 2 charges against the 'Jersey Shore' star in his domestic violence case with Jen Harley. Ronnie was arrested last October after an explosive fight at their Airbnb in L.A., and faced 7 charges. Now, according to docs obtained by TMZ, prosecutors asked the judge to drop 2 of those charges -- brandishing a weapon and criminal threats.

The judge has already signed off on the prosecutor's request.

A rep for the City Attorney's Office tells us they amended the complaint based on the evidence. Ronnie's attorney, Scott Leemon, tells us, "The facts and circumstances relating to the arrest and charging of Ronnie were exaggerated and actually incorrect."

He went on to say, "The City’s Attorney agreed with us and dismissed 2 of the pending charges against Ronnie. They agreed that these allegations were baseless and made up. We are hoping further investigation will yield similar results."

As we reported ... Jen alleged she suffered bruises and scrapes during an altercation with Ronnie that resulted in cops busting through the door and Tasing him before slapping cuffs on him and wheeling him out on a gurney.

He later pled not guilty to 7 misdemeanors -- domestic violence, child endangerment, brandishing a weapon, criminal threats, false imprisonment [of Jen] and 2 counts of resisting arrest. It's now down to 5 misdemeanors.

The news comes less than a month after cops in Vegas recommended Jen be charged for allegedly attacking Ronnie with eyeliner. Prosecutors have yet to make a decision in that case.

Vinny from "Jersey Shore" sure is a tease, but luckily for the ladies -- and fellas -- out there, he aims to please ... 'cause he's returning to his Chippendales gig to quench everyone's thirst.

The self-proclaimed Keto Guido will embark on a 7-week engagement beginning April 24 through June 7 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino. He'll perform 3 nights a week during that run ... and it's easy to see why they've scheduled him for multiple nights a week.

The self-proclaimed Keto Guido has been great for Chippendales' bottom line after not one but TWO sold-out engagements in 2019. Since his first performance, Chippendales has seen huge demand for him to return.

SNACK TIME

The "Jersey Shore" star was spotted Sunday morning leaving E11EVEN Miami at the ass crack of dawn around 6 AM ET. Looks like he was raging the night away with some good company -- a couple of baddies were kinda flanking him as he made his way out of the club.

No PDA here, but all signs point to these two lovely ladies rolling with our man. He's leading the way, and they're all giddy following close behind ... casting their gaze on him.

It's a good sign for sure to see Ronnie moving on and away from his on-again, off-again girlfriend and baby mama, Jen Harley, who recently got into another alleged snag with her ex. Ronnie claims she attacked him with eyeliner ... just the latest episode between them.

He bounced back from that run-in with a nice surprise on the streets not too long after the Jen incident, getting flashed by a spunky chick with even spunkier ... fuhgeddaboudit.

Sources close to Jen tell TMZ ... she caught the real estate bug after making some extra cash helping agents flip her own homes, and decided she wanted to take real estate classes and pursue a career in the biz.

Jen's been around the game for a while ... we're told she's owned 6 homes in her life and got a thrill out of buying and selling each property. Now she can pocket some commissions!!!

In addition to being licensed in Nevada, we're told Jen wants to eventually get a license in Cali, and she has a house in escrow in Florida she's hoping to turn into an Airbnb.

As you know ... Ronnie and Jen are selling their Las Vegas home after listing it 3 months ago. Jen only got her real estate license in January, so she didn't land that listing.

Probably for the best, considering their track record.

Situation isn't shutting the door on a potential run at Chippendales ... but he's channeling Cuba Gooding Jr.'s character in "Jerry Maguire" and telling Chippendales to show him the moola.

CREATIN' THE SITUATION
Hollywood Pipeline Podcast

When Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino was about to join the reality TV world on "Jersey Shore," he prepared in a very interesting way ... by smelling what The Rock was cooking.

Mike and his wife, Lauren, were guests on the Hollywood Pipeline Podcast with Dax Holt & Adam Glyn ... and he made a huge reveal. He tells them "The Situation" isn't his normal personality -- it's an amped-up version inspired by his love for wrestling ... specifically, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

The Sitch says he wanted to bring something new to the hit MTV series, and while he's obviously a character on his own ... he wanted to make himself "larger than life." Hence -- the nickname, the catchphrases, the abs ... and talking about himself in the third person.

Gotta say, it worked pretty well, and Mike sold it as the genuine article ... though ya gotta think he really had some GTL experience.

Funny part is, Mike says he ran into The Rock once and got some kudos from the wrestling star for his reality TV performance ... and the master didn't even know he was speaking to his pupil.
