Cast of ‘Jersey Shore’
Had no idea about Sammi’s return…
Appeared, shocking everyone

Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola is returning to “Jersey Shore” — a plot twist that came as a shock not only to fans, but to the cast themselves … TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to the show tell us Paul D, JWow, Snooki, The situation, Vinny and all the other stars of ‘Family Vacation’ had no idea that Sammi would show up to the scene last week … and that they were just as surprised as the rest of the world.
Of course … the reactions were wild, or so say our sources. We’re told it was a real shocker for everyone involved — and the raw, jubilant reactions it elicited from people were wild … laughter, tears, and everything in between.
All that was caught on camera, and we’re told it will all play out 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 … seeing as how it’s been over a decade since she’s been on anything “Jersey Shore” related, and was the only OG cast member not to return to ‘Family Vacation’. The timing of her presence now, however, may make perfect sense.
The fact is that she has a very rocky history with Ronnie Ortiz-Magro … who she dated on and off throughout the original run. Ronnie has since moved on, but his life’s ups and downs continue – and he stepped away from ‘JS’ indefinitely 2 years ago.
The guy made a guest appearance last season, but he’s not a regular cast member anymore — which could be why Sammi agreed to sign on and return.
Now that the whole gang is back together (without Ronnie), we’ll see what kind of shenanigans they get up to. Sammi has always been a big personality and is not one to put up with ice***.
