"We all came together as a family," he dished. Considering Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino entered rehab and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi got pregnant, the cast has certainly had off-screen life experiences to add excitement to the already colorful show. 

He explained to The Hollywood Reporter, "You might think it wouldn't be crazy 'cause we got a girl that's pregnant and then my boy just got out of rehab, but you're gonna see how we do it and it's one of my favorite seasons."

Pauly pointed out a bone of contention with Emmy voters who dissed the show by not nominating it for any Reality TV categories.

"I don't make the rules for that, but I have to disagree with it." He added, "They should have been [nominated], but what are you gonna do?"
