The cast of the hit TV show Jersey Shore were spotted leaving the Wendy Williams show studios in Manhattan today (October 21).

After taking a group shop, Vinnie Guadagnino, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, DJ Pauly D, Mike “THe Situation” Sorrentino, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola and Ronnie Ortiz Magro all took turns vamping it up for the paparazzi before moving on to their next media event.

The gang was on hand to promote the finale of Jersey Shore‘s Miami-based second season, which airs tonight on MTV.

But worry not — Jersey Shore co-creator and exec producer SallyAnn Salsano tells The Hollywood Reporter that the hit reality TV show will debut its third season, filmed in Seaside, N.J., on January 6.

Salsano promises “plenty of drama” in the new season. “There are some new hook-ups both in the house and outside. The kids legitimately grow up and come into their own in front of your eyes. They’re still the same cast, but I think how they deal with situations is completely different.”

Angelina will not be back, but we can expect to see Snooki’s friend Ryder show up. And, Salsano says that we can expect to see a new cast member: Deena, one of Snooki’s best friends. “She’s a good time. It was hard for her to come in because there was a pre-existing relationship between everyone. There was literally no shortage of drama.”

Salsano is tough on the newly famous stars of the show. “They’re grateful, they’re happy and they realize it’s the opportunity of a lifetime. If any one of them is like [cries a very Snooki-like “Waaa!”] — you know, giving me anything — I’m like, ‘Really? A year ago you were in your mother’s basement and I had to give you $4 for Gatorade and cigarettes.’ So we all laugh and move on.”

As for any spinoff shows, she says, “I don’t know if there is anything official.”

Her advice to the kids? “This is the advice I always give to them, and I take the same advice myself: ‘If everyone is out there drinking your Kool-Aid, that is awesome. The minute you have a sip, you are done. Just stay away from your own Kool-Aid.’ Some of them are more receptive to that than others. There are so many opportunities they’re getting from being on the show. The longer the show is on the air, the longer those opportunities will take place. So just keep the show on the air. I think sometimes that’s hard to know when you haven’t already seen it a million times in the industry.”
