‘Jersey Shore’ Stars ‘Can’t Wait’ To Shoot In Italy

Gondola rides, learning a new language, falling in love: Deena and Vinny tell MTV News their plans for next season and beyond.

The third season of “Jersey Shore” wrapped on Thursday night, but Seaside’s finest are already planning for the next installment of the show, which will take them to Italy. And that means the cast should probably brush up on their pregos and grazies before they land in the home of delicious spaghetti, fine leather goods and the Pope.

“Can’t wait! I honestly can’t wait to get there and see the place,” Deena told MTV News this week. “For some reason, I really want to go on a gondola ride. Or I would like if we’re in Rome, I would like to see the love fountain, so I’m thinking I’ll steal a coin … maybe I’ll fall in love.”

Meanwhile, her castmate Vinny told us he’d prepare for the next season of the hit reality series the same way he has for all of the past seasons.

“Preparing for Italy is pretty much preparing for any of the other seasons, trying to get in shape, trying to spend some time with my family, chill out, the quiet before the storm,” he said. “I’m excited to be thrown right into the water with whatever language skills I have.”

But the cast is also busier than ever with other projects and gigs.

Pauly D’s ramping up for the debut of his own reality show , and fans can catch him spinning tunes at his DJ residency at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

Vinny got a plum role on “The Hard Times of RJ Berger” and revealed he’s got some musical abilities, saying, “I dabble in music and it’s something I do for fun and if it’s good, it’s good.” No word on whether he’ll pursue that any further, but Vinny did add that he’d love to pursue more acting. “My future is very open. I like to do scripted types of things,” he told us.

Snooki and JWoww have followed a somewhat similar path: Both are published authors, and both have appeared on wrestling-type programs. Now there’s chatter the two ladies might get their own show, casting them as reality-TV version of “Laverne and Shirley.”

The Situation, of course, is already a budding entrepreneur, with a book and fitness DVD in stores and other deals in the pipeline. Earlier this year, the former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant began working on YOBI.tv’s “Random Talent” Web series with British comedian Ben Green.
