“Jersey Shore” — Season 5, Episode 4

Same Shore, Different Season

If only I had known Danny was looking for a new housemate …

I could have been the first ghost guido. No tan, no gym, no laundry. I would have shaken the house up. Alas, I did not see the “Help Wanted” sign.

Maybe next summer!

“Jersey Shore” — Season 5, Episode 3

Same Shore, Different Season

Depending on whether you take I-9 North or Garden State Parkway North, Seaside Heights, N.J., is either 58 or 63 miles from Staten Island, N.Y., according to

I mention this because on last week’s “Jersey Shore” — I just watched it tonight because I just broke free from a “Dexter” marathon — the housemates moped about the departure of everyone’s BFF, Vinny, in a manner that made it seem like he moved across the globe.

Thing is he only went 90 minutes away, tops. Rumor has it one guido can see another guido fist pump from that distance, if they have the right amount of gel in their hair and at least one guidette in the club is DTF. Rumor also has it Pauly D’s blowout was the first visible from space, but I digress.

Vinny’s departure from the show amid anxiety issues, while likely a short-lived hiatus, provided some much-needed drama to a house low on surprises as Season 5 started. There are only so many times Snooki can fall down, Deena can expose her kooka and Snitchuation can be Snitchuation before it gets tiresome.

There are only so many times I can write about “Jersey Shore” before … nah, it will continue to be awesome. Cab’s here!

“Jersey Shore” — Season 5, Episode 1

Back in Jersey! Tanorexics no more!

Same Shore, Different Season. (copyrighted)

OK. There was no need to (fake) copyright that. It is not like MTV is going to read this blog and swoop in and steal that tagline. I mean, it is not even flattering.

The fifth season of “Jersey Shore” kicked off with a familiar setting (Seaside Heights) and familiar drama — Snooki and Snitchuation’s feud, a slut-tastic appearance from Snooki’s BFF Ryder, and the trials and tribulations of anxiety-ridden Vinny.

Viewers know what they are getting from “Jersey Shore” at this point — Deena’s cooka, although not in this episode. MTV knows what it is getting too — strong ratings.

“Jersey Shore” Is Back — That Can Only Mean One Thing

Deena’s cooka. Deena’s kooka. Deena’s cooka pictures uncensored.

People entered those gag-worthy terms into a search engine and ended up at the Cajun Tomato this week. I know this all-important knowledge thanks to WordPress analytics.

“Jersey Shore” — I typed “Jersey Shire” before correcting myself — is back with its fifth season Thursday night on MTV. Can you imagine Bilbo Baggins at the Shore? Or Snooki and Deena at the Shire? I digress.

I don’t know what “Jersey Shore” means to you — maybe it is guilt, maybe it is disgust, maybe it is meatball lust. For me, it means the aforementioned search items related to Deena’s vajayjay are going to cause my page views to shoot up like a Jersey hooker.

"Jersey Shore" — Season 4, Episode 12

Gone from Italy but never forgotten

Meatball+kooka sweat=this ginger gags.

That’s the equation I came up with to describe the Season 4 finale of “Jersey Shore.” It’s not Good Will Hunting writing on the chalkboard, but it will do for this post.

The finale was anti-climactic. The gang got drunk, tried to hook up with grenades, toured Florence’s sights, and talked about getting tan in Jersey. Now that I think about it: What REALLY happened in the Season 4 finale? Did I yawn throughout?

I need a six-hour energy drink, or two, to make sense of this cluster. Wink, wink at Deena and Sammi “Nada Sweetheart.” Way to shill, ladies. Stay energized!

"Jersey Shore" — Season 4, Episode 11

No. I don't have photos of Deena's kooka.

You’re welcome, Italy.

For all the ‘roided out aggression.

For all the overexposed meatball kookas.

For showing you the difference between hookers and Jersey.

You have seen the best guidos and guidettes our fine Shore had to offer. You will never see an Orange Dream Team like this again. Until, um, next Thursday night. Best Reality TV Night of My Life!

"Jersey Shore" — Season 4, Episode 10

No. I don't have photos of Deena's kooka.

Depending on your perspective, MTV’s “Jersey Shore” has either had its occasional low points or been one continuous low point. I am an unabashed fan of the show, and thus I would say it has had occasional low points, most of which were caused by Ronnie and Sammi “Nada Sweetheart”‘s constant bickering in Seasons 2 and 3.

Episode 10 featured the lowest moment in series history, in my humble opinion, and it had nothing to do with the castmates. It involved MTV’s decision to splice a Beavis and Butthead promo into a conversation Vinny had with his family.

I wanted to throat-punch MTV executives and claw my eyes out. Simultaneously. What in the name of Deena’s flea-bitten kooka were they trying to pull with that one?

I will leave that question unanswered. Besides revealing MTV’s utter contempt for its “Jersey Shore” audience, Episode 10 showed broken-hearted Snooki, in what has become one of Season 4’s main plotlines, lashing out at Snitchuation and trying to make up with her boyfriend, Lil Jionni.

"Jersey Shore" — Season 4, Episode 9

No. I don't have photos of Deena's kooka.

Ahhhhhh. So that’s what a kooka-free “Jersey Shore” episode looks like. I had forgotten.

The theme of Episode 9 was less kooka, more ugly tears. There was a pregnancy scare, bad dancing at imitation Karma, and a surprise rebound hookup at episode’s close.

It’s all leading up to an inglorious conclusion four episodes from now, I am sure. What will I do with myself once the season ends? Must. Not. Think. About. This! (slow tear)

Italian-style Guido Super Party in 3, 2, 1 ….

"Jersey Shore" — Season 4, Episode 8

No. I don't have photos of Deena's kooka.

Deena’s kooka, Deena’s kooka, Deena’s kooka …

… Snooki’s kooka, Snooki’s kooka, Snooki’s kooka.

All this meatball kooka is going to cause my Cajun head to explode. Notice: I spelled kooka correctly this week. Last week I came in first on Yahoo! and Google searches for Deena’s cooka, a term I misspelled.

My goal this week is to attain the top slot for Snooki’s kooka. It’s probably a long shot, like the odds of Jionni and Snooki’s relationship working after the events of Episode 8.

Here are my thoughts on an episode full of tears, bad dancing, and, you guessed it, kooka sightings.

"Jersey Shore": My new/old addiction

WARNING: There are lots of “cooka” related spoilers in this recap so if you haven’t seen Episode 7 you probably should watch it and then read this later.

“Deena’s cooka” is the No. 1 search item for my blog today. And it’s not even close. Some people have arrived at my site by searching “Deena’s cooka pictures.”

Sorry to disappoint, but I don’t have any pictures of Deena’s “cooka.” Ironically, the mere mention of the words “pictures of Deena’s cooka” might actually bring me more page views. Hooray for the Interwebs!

If you watched Episode 7 Thursday night, you know that Deena’s cooka came out with a vengeance. She and Snooki snookered for hours.  Ooh la la! or Ugh la la! You decide!
