SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. -- GTL (Gym, tan, laundry) is being replaced by GTC (Go to court) for the cast of MTV's "Jersey Shore."
So far this year, one cast member, Deena Cortese, was arrested for allegedly dancing in a roadway in Seaside Heights, slapping passing cars. And housemate Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is accused by a northern New Jersey man of assaulting him during a scuffle at the Bamboo Bar earlier this month.
Add to that a court hearing next week for a friend of Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino. John Manfre, known on the show as "The Unit," was charged with trying to bring drugs into the shore house, according to his lawyer, who is challenging the grounds for the arrest.
MTV declined to comment on the cast members' legal woes.
