New York, Feb 16 (ANI): New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has asked New York to take back 'Jersey Shore' cast members who he thinks are giving his state a bad name.
"Take them back. We don't want them," the New York Post quoted the Republican chief executive as saying at a town hall meeting in Lincoln Park, N.J.
According to the Star-Ledger, the governor also said Tuesday that he plans to ask NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo to reclaim the rowdy stars.
Christie, who has harped on the cast of the hit MTV series and their partying ways in the past, made it clear that his state was not responsible for New Yorkers like Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi - who was arrested for disorderly conduct during a particularly drunken day at the beach while filming the show's third season - and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.
"Remember, Snooki is from Poughkeepsie and the Situation is from Staten Island. That's not New Jersey," the paper quoted Christie as saying.
The cast is currently gearing up to shoot its fourth season in Italy. (ANI)
