"However you want to take it from here, you take it and you act on it," he adds, clearly pushing Jionni to wake Snooki up and dump her on the spot.
But what does Jionni do instead?
He thanks the Sitch, shakes his hand and says nothing. Mike takes this as a sign that Jionni doesn’t care about Snooki, but in reality, Jionni goes back to bed and tells Nicole how hilarious it is that Mike told him such a stupid lie.
‘I’m not going to deal with this right now," says a groggy Snooks, adding that Mike is just trying to get a rise out of Jionni.
Jionni agrees, admits he doesn’t care, and goes back to bed.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is the extent of "Jersey Shore" drama these days. It’s almost as if these people are acting calmly and rationally. It’s eerie.
But at least there’s still some fight left in old Snooks. when she sees Mike later that morning, she tells him they’re never going to be friends again and starts screaming and cursing at him while a diminutive Jionni quietly begs her to shut up.
After Snooki has cooled down, she and Jionni go out for a romantic couple’s day out.
"I want to be with you forever," she purrs. "if you can handle me forever."
And that’s when we find out Snooki is really a powerful psychic .
"me and Jionni are getting married, I feel, when he proposes," she says in confessional. "And I don’t know when that is, but he’d better do it … within the future."
Wow. just wow. It’s exactly like going to a boardwalk psychic – just vague enough to potentially happen, and kinda, sorta, but not really logical. Sigh.
during Sunday dinner, Snooki decides that the whole gang should go camping that Wednesday, despite the fact that they all agree that "guidos don’t camp."
The following situation occurred: a boy with a stuttering problem would need to perform a large monologue in their group’s next selected play. throughout the first workshop sessions, he had been constantly monitoring his reputation. he was concerned with being treated differently in some way, for his stuttering problem. even though in complete contradiction with the group’s attitude towards such situations, his concern was understandable. unfortunately, it was also in complete contradiction with the basics of method acting. The more the others hinted at his approach, the subtler it became, but it was always there.
That day, the exercises had little to do with method acting, but they were useful and fun. The boy volunteered to play the Expert among the first. with a nonchalant smile that was every bit calculated, he told everybody that he would overcome his problem by the time the play would be staged. Nobody had doubted that. The exercise started well, but when the boy’s turn came, the Expert mumbled a few unintelligible sounds and stopped. There was no Expert onstage, delivering a one minute improvised speech on a crazy topic. Fun was gone, and the helpless boy with his stuttering problem replaced the onstage Expert. The boy’s glare in complete silence alerted the others back into the real world, and they were watching him with worried faces. Yet there was no other evidence of anything going on. only seconds were passing, and the boy with the stuttering problem was neither quitting, nor speaking.The trainer had wanted to teach improvisation that day. he was not so keen on method acting but, even so, he did not stop the exercise. The boy was neither consenting to this premature end, nor rejecting it, and the trainer genuinely wanted the boy to make a choice. For the group, the new situation was of little help, but that boy was still there, caught between the two worlds.
When the others felt the exercise was over and whispering started, he reacted surprisingly by speaking, and told everybody, once again, that he was going to succeed by the time the play would be staged. again, nobody had doubted that. when it came to theater overcoming individual limits, most of those kids had very little doubts. The boy delivered his message without any visible effort, but in a strange husky voice that was very low and caught general attention in an instant. they became a bewildered audience in that instant. Not the theatrical audience of an Expert, not the cheering audience of a training stand-up comedian, but the real-life audience that a stuttering boy had managed so hard to win over. it all lasted just that instant. then everybody, group and boy, suddenly relaxed. everybody got back to the workshop naturally, like nothing had happened, like the exercise had almost landed on the right spot, even if it had followed an altogether different route. Others volunteered to play Experts and were queuing patiently in the attentive audience. unlike with young grown-ups, work after the incident went down well.
Feedback after the workshop
Their group must have seen such moments before, because they discussed the situation among other themes during the next feed-back session. it was almost not there in their questions and their impressions.The trainer did nothing to change that perception of the things going almost well. The boy’s impressions were a clear hint at several minutes of psychodrama, and the trainer was well aware of that. most of the older trainees knew the word already, but they did not recognize the situation. The few ones who did, remained friendly and silent. The boy’s progress confirmed the trainer’s silent assumption. whatever had caused the young man to stutter, his problem gradually gave in after that workshop.
Feedback after the performance
Their performance went down well, and they were pleased with themselves when they discussed it. The boy who used to have a stuttering problem confessed of wanting to have his character stutter a bit onstage, now that he did not have that problem anymore. For a moment, it had seemed the logical step further, but then he gave it up, he said. while the younger ones were pondering his confession, one of their 17-year-old leaders asked what had made him stop, and the 15-year-old boy answered that his sudden decision could have jeopardized his onstage interaction with the others. In his particular case, not building a stuttering character during the rehearsal sessions meant that suddenly stuttering onstage could have worried the others out of their acting efforts. he ended jocularly, explaining that his fluent speech had been enough fun for one day. The huge applause he got for this unprepared feedback speech surprised him. Soon after that, they went for a hide-and-seek session in the cold and sunny central park. The trainer decided to accompany them, and read a few lines in the sunny cold, while they were at playing. they were all convinced that childhood games played an important part in method acting training. they were playing like their lives depended on it, and he was already cold, but he still felt like having been invited to someone’s graduation ceremony and party.
Although TMZ is reporting otherwise, Mike “the Situation” Sorrentino’s rep tells RumorFix that the Sitch is not in rehab for substance abuse.
A rep for the Jersey Shore star tells RumorFix, “the Situation has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule.”

The news comes just a day after MTV confirms that “the Situation” and the rest of the Jersey Shore crew are coming back for Season Six.
