They were one of TV’s biggest sensations the earlier part of the decade.
And on Wednesday night, the Jersey Shore cast was back in the limelight celebrating the premiere of their new project, Jersey Shore Family Vacation, at Dream Downtown’s PH-D Lounge.
The ensemble cast of the reality TV franchise – Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, 30, Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley, 32, Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino, 35, Paul ‘Pauly D’ DelVecchio, 37, Vinny Guadagnino, 30, and Deena Nicole Cortese, 31 – was front-and-center as they posed at the hip venue to commemorate their return to television.
Only regular Ronnie Magro, 32, was not on hand – and for good reason – as he and girlfriend Jen Harley welcomed a baby girl Tuesday.
The diva, who emerged as one of the show’s breakout stars, wore her jet black mane with bangs with bold red lipstick that added sizzle.
The 4ft8 dynamo, who has two children with her husband Jionni LaValle – son Lorenzo, five, and daughter Giovanna, three – rounded out her get-up with open-toe grey sandals with fringes.
JWoww also made a fashion impression in a shimmery black gown with a plunging top and black heels, with her jet black mane parted on the side.
The group, who surged in popularity during their six-season run on MTV from 2009 thru 2012, has high hopes in their first group project in more than five years.
With his trademark confidence, The Situation compared he and his Garden State running mates to the members of a certain Marvel tentpole franchise.
‘We like to compare ourselves to The Avengers in that we have reunited to save reality TV once again,’ he told the New York Daily News Wednesday.
Jersey Shore Family Vacation debuts April 5 on MTV.
