Live Blogging Jersey Shore , Week Five with Special Guests Sammi and Ronnie [Jersey Shore]

It's always nerve-wracking having company over. Is the house clean enough? Will we have enough food? When will they get here? Will they show at all ? Like a good party, it's going to be a blast watching Jersey Shore together. As you might have heard the king and queen of Seaside Heights, Sammi and Ronnie, are scheduled to be joining us tonight.
