Before Hurricane Irene cripples the airports, Snooki and her friends quickly board a private jet that ensures their attendance at the awards show.
Not even the Hurricane Irene can stop the "Jersey Shore" stars from having fun at this year's MTV Video Music Awards. Snooki, Vinny, The Situation, Deena and Sammie all were flown in to Los Angeles via a private jet before the airports are closed for the weather.
The five of them boarded from Teterboro, New Jersey. "MTV wanted to make sure they got in town for the VMAs," an insider told Us Weekly. The rest of the gang are still in other cities and are expected to join Snooki in L.A. Soon. DJ Pauly D will be flying from Oklahoma City, JWoww from Las Vegas and Ronnie from Rhode Island.
It is yet clear what kind of role the "Jersey Shore" cast would play at the Sunday awards show. Pauly D revealed previously that he would bring a lucky fan as his date. Meanwhile, Vinny tweeted earlier this week, "Can't wait for LA this weekend. Girls on the east don't have those sleeve tats that I like."
