Following the destructive effects of Hurricane Sandy on the coastlines of New York and New Jersey, MTV launched a new show 'Restore the Shore' featuring the cast of 'Jersey Shore' witnessing the devastation of the reality show set.
Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi was on the verge of tears as she was flown over the wreckage of Seaside Heights in a helicopter for the show, feeling deep regret for all that was lost of her reality show life. Pauly D and other members of the show also struggled to contain their shock. 'I'm looking at it and I still can't believe it's real', Pauly said when he visited the boardwalk. 'Now here is something that we've partied on, walked on, danced on, did everything on, it's just a happy place, and to see it gone, it's like dead silence.'
Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino was noticeably missing from the rather miserable reunion, but Vinny Guadagnino took the time to talk to those who had lost their homes and lives due to the effects of the storm. 'Honestly, Sway, seeing and talking to those people, I didn't know how to react to somebody who just lost everything', he said to the 'Restore the Shore' hosts Sway Calloway and Amy Paffrath. 'Grown people, grown men crying right next to me, and what can you say to somebody who just lost their entire life?'
