'Jersey Shore' Spinoff: Are Snooki & JWoww Leaving the Drama Behind?
Jersey Shore stars Jenni "JWoww" Farley and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi are on their way to becoming the modern day Laverne and Shirley — that is if Laverne and Shirley cruised the boardwalk for guidos and fist-pumped their way across the globe.
The reality TV twosome are set to begin filming their own spinoff, and they're ready to show their fans a softer side.
"It's not going to be so much of the partying that you see on Jersey Shore," Snooki told Parade.com "You're going to see a different side of us when it comes to our relationships with our boyfriends and just our normal lives."
"Hopefully people will see that I'm not always the party girl and I'd rather not drink and stay in and play board games." she added.
The pair have taken their shenanigans from the Jersey Shore to Miami to Italy, but where their new spinoff will take place is still up in the air.
Snooki: 'Reality Shows Capture Your Worst Moments'
The city of Hoboken, N.J., recently rejected a request by the producers of MTV's Jersey Shore to film the spinoff in the small town. Mayor Dawn Zimmer said the city's Film Commission worried that the project might compromise the safety and quality of life of city residents.
But the reality stars aren't taking the rejection personally. In fact, they'd like to take their new show to a warmer climate.
"I would actually love us to travel because it's still kinda chilly in Jersey right now," JWoww said. "I'd love us to go explore beaches."
In addition to their upcoming spinoff, both girls are keeping busy with a variety of business ventures. JWoww has written her own modern girls' guide to dating, The Rules According to JWoww, while Snooki has two books, her own signature perfume, slippers, tanning lotion, lashes, boots, and smart phone apps under her belt. Most recently, she partnered with iHip headphones to design her own stylish line.
"They're going to be very gaudy with animal prints and bling-bling. Totally my style," she said.

The pair has also found the secret to having successful relationships while in the spotlight.
"The less the relationship is in the spotlight, the better," JWoww said. "There's business time and then there's personal time. When you cross that barrier you're going to get a lot of criticism and people will get into your relationship. That's when the problems occur, so the less I let my relationship be dissected, the better."
JWoww is also quick to shoot down rumors that she's had several plastic surgery procedures in between seasons.
"I just laugh. The things they said I had done are so outrageous. If they're not going to believe me, just look at my schedule. I was doing appearances twice a week and TV shows at least once a week during the time they said I had it done, so they should realize that I wouldn't have been able to have anything done."

Snooki has also found a way to keep her relationship going despite the spotlight. She's on again with her boyfriend of one year, Jionni La Valle, despite on and off screen drama with Jersey Shore co-star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.
"We're really good. He's a great guy, so we're doing great," she said about her relationship with Jionni. As for Mike: "I really don't care for the kid let's put it that way."
Season 5 of Jersey Shore is currently underway, but can fans expect the drama to continue?
"I really hope so. I really can't see it ending on Season 5," JWoww said.
"At this point, we have no idea, but obviously we all want to go back," Snooki added.
