No Plans for 'Jersey Shore' to Film at Bum Rogers

But cast's security detail did question procedure for dropping in for a meal

It's just a rumor!

Bum Rogers manager Jeannie Rodriguez has put to rest any suggestion that MTV's "Jersey Shore" cast might be filming at the landmark restaurant in South Seaside Park.

"They would have to make arrangements for that," Rodriguez said. "Nobody's done anything like that."

But Rodriguez did say that security employees for the show had dropped in and asked what procedures would need to be followed if the cast dropped in for a meal.

"He said they might want to come in and eat," Rodriguez said.

The issue surfaced at the June 28 Township Council meeting, when South Seaside Park resident Donald Whiteman asked council members if they were aware of the show's plans to film at Bum Rogers on Wednesday nights.

"We're hoping to see more of a police presence on Wednesday nights," Whiteman told the council.

"If there are any additional costs with this, I think we should send the bill to MTV," Council Vice-President Carmen J. Amato Jr. said. "Unfortunately, Snookie and The Situation are not coming to enjoy our amenities, they are coming to create disturbances."

The audience applauded.

Police Chief John C. Weinlein III sat in the back of the meeting room and took it all in.

When asked after the meeting if he was a Snooki fan, Weinlein replied "No."

"Does she have any?" he said. "We will discuss the problem with the show and determine what type of additional protection might be needed."

Bum Rogers server Brittany McGary wasn't happy to learn the gang might be coming to South Seaside Park.

"It's the worst!" said McGary, 22, who has worked at the restaurant on Central Avenue for two summers. "This is like one of the few places you can get away from all that. It's extremely aggravating. We come down here to get away from the crowds and the mess and the boardwalk."
