They're in Miami, Trick

Can we talk about Jersey Shore for a minute? As you may already be aware, last year I wrote not one but two posts on this fantastic show. The second season of Jersey Shore started in July. This time the gang is in Miami (because I'm pretty sure the same city could not handle the cast of Jersey Shore for two consecutive years). It's been on the DVR, staring Amy Jo and me in the face for several weeks now. I won't lie to you--we were nervous. What if it wasn't good (in this case, the definition for good is quite different from the standard Webster's definition). Last night we finally decided to (in the words of JWoww) "man up" and watch. I don't want to say it was the best decision ever...but it was a good decision nonetheless.

The whole gang is back and it only took about 15 minutes for the drama to start. And why did the drama start? Because Angelina is back. If you don't know who Angelina is, consider yourself lucky. Feel free to consult the fantastic cast biography chart on Wikipedia. Thanks to this chart, I just learned that I'm older than everyone on Jersey Shore with the exception of The Situation and Pauly D. Anyway, back to Angelina.

Angelina was on the first season for approximately 3 minutes. OK, maybe a little more. She's nothing but an instigator--always stirring the pot and adding drama. Angelina had to leave last season because she refused to work her shift at the t-shirt shop. As I mentioned in a previous post, Angelina is a bartender. And she does (her words) "great things". Not to mention that during the reunion episode we discover that the guy Angelina was dating during Season 1 was a married man. Classy.
No one was sad to see her go. But I think everyone was sad to see her return. And by everyone I mean viewers and the rest of the cast. I was sad for a number of reasons (including those previously mentioned), but to top it all off...we learn that Angelina doesn't know how to properly dress herself. She has been looking a hot mess in every available shot. Sadly, I can't find a picture. Don't get me wrong--I wouldn't look good in those clothes either, that's why I don't buy them. Even Amy Jo borrowed a new term we learned from The Situation and called Angelina a "grenade".

In closing, I would like to say that Angelina has no business being on Season 2 of Jersey Shore and that Amy Jo and I are looking forward to watching the rest of the magic unfold this season. I'd also like to state that the amount of time I've spent not working on things for school but rather writing this post (not to mention searching for crappy pictures of Angelina on Google and learning that Snooki was born in Santiago, Chile) is a little ridiculous.
