Jersey Shore Family Vacation Visits Asbury Park-And Takes In A Drag Show

Even if you are only a peripheral fan of the reality smash Jersey Shore, you are acutely aware of who Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Pauly D and J-Wow are in the pop culture lexicon. We have followed their lives for years on their original show (mostly based in Seaside Heights, N.J.) and now their reboot Jersey Shore Family Vacation has shown them growing up, marrying, divorcing, and parenting. Now filming their latest season (the current season is airing now), they have been seen out and about on the Jersey Shore (and beyond). This weekend, the gang (followed by MTV cameras) dropped into Paradise, located in Asbury Park, N.J. 

Sources say, the ladies were at the center of the action at this particular outing. The whole cast was in attendance, sans Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino (released from federal prison earlier this week). The cast was celebrating J-Wow’s recent divorce, and took in a drag show at the famed nightclub. New Jersey/New York City drag stunner Jolina Jasmine even gave J-Wow herself an on stage lap dance to the ironic strains of Ariana Grande’s “Break Up With Your Boyfriend”. Post lap dance, Angelina hopped up on stage and formally asked Deena, J-Wow, and Nicole to be bridesmaids at her own upcoming wedding! 

The boys look to have taken up residence in the VIP area of the nightclub, where they could have a bird’s eye view of the festivities. 

Several of the ladies, Nicole and Angelina specifically, have been known to hit the clubs with the boys on occasion, but this is the first time that the show decided to film at an establishment geared towards the LGBT community and its allies. Sources say that the entire gang was having a great time, was friendly to fans and could not have been more pleasant to deal with. 

Guidos, Meatballs, and Drag Queens; sounds like a late summer Friday night in Jersey to me….
