'Jersey Shore' Delayed Again, Italian Permits Revoked
By Kelly Fisher Posted May 9th 2011 07:03AM
According to RadarOnline.com, the city of Florence has revoked the show's permits to film at several historical landmarks, including the Uffizi gallery and Palazzo Vecchio.
Several cast members, including Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino and Paul 'DJ Pauly D' DelVecchio were filmed, bags packed and ready to roll, at the airport last week but MTV told them to hang tight until the show figures out a plan.
This hiccup in production is just latest speed bump for the producers. Problems began when several cast members held out for bigger raises last month, which first delayed their trip.
Next came the backlash from Italian citizens who were not happy that they show would be filming on their home soil. When the mayor of Florence released a list of "rules" for the reality stars -- including no filming in bars and no drinking in public -- it began to look grim for the next season of 'Jersey Shore.'
Now, with filming permits in question, will viewers even get to see any Italian sights other than the roommates' rented townhouse?
