Ahead of Hurricane Irene hitting the eastern seaboard, members of the Jersey Shore cast members hopped a private jet to escape the storm and attend the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.
According to MTV, Jersey Shore cast members Snooki, Vinny, Deena, and Sammi narrowly escaped Hurricane Irene after the Jersey guidos boarded a private jet in New Jersey for L.A. to attend the 2011 MTV VMAs. “We had to get out here for the VMAs,” said Vinny. “MTV did whatever they could to get us out here. We wouldn’t miss it for the world.”
Pauly D., who arrived in L.A. from Oklahoma while on tour with Britney Spears, revealed that he almost didn’t make it out. “I was nervous. This storm’s no joke,” said Pauly D. who went on to say that he texted Jersey mate Vinny out of fears that the Jersey crew wouldn’t make it to L.A..
