Sammi ‘Honey’ Giancola returns to “Jersey Shore” – a plotline that not only shocked the fanbase, but also the cast themselves… TMZ has learned.
Sources linked to the show tell us Pauly D, JWoww, Billiards, The situation, Vinny and all the other “Family Vacation” stars had no idea that Sammi would show up on set last week…and they were just as surprised as the rest of the world.
Waiting for your permission to load Instagram media.
Of course… the reactions have been wild, or so our sources say. We’re told it was truly a shock to everyone involved – and the raw, jubilant responses it elicited from people were wild… laughter, tears and everything in between.
This was all filmed, and we’re told it will all take place in the second half of this season (the 6th, BTW), which is currently filming. No word on an air date.
Sammi’s return is a HUGE deal…considering it’s been over a decade since she’s been on anything ‘Jersey Shore’, and was the only OG cast member not to return for “Family Vacation”. The timing of his presence now, however, could make perfect sense.
The thing is, she has a very checkered history with Ronnie Ortiz Magro …whom she dated from time to time throughout the original run. Ronnie has since moved on, but the ups and downs of his life continue – and he stepped aside from ‘JS’ indefinitely 2 years ago.
The dude made an appearance last season, but he’s no longer a regular cast member – and that could be why Sammi agreed to sign and return.
Now that the whole gang is back (minus Ronnie), we’ll see what shenanigans they get into. Sammi has always been a great personality and is not one to put up with shit.
I can not wait !
