It seems MTV is making sure people don't get too close to the Jersey Shore guys this season.
When the guido crew was dining at JFK Airport last week en route to Italia to begin filming, Pauly D, The Situation, Vinnie and Co. had a bodyguard in tow and told two girls that they weren't allowed to pose for photos with fans.
But Pauly and Vinnie did offer the two brunettes something else even better (or worse, depending on how you feel about them)...
"The guys explained they weren't allowed to take any pictures with people because of filming," one eyewitness tells me, "But they added that they could take the girls' phone numbers, makeout with them or anything else."
Pauly and Vinnie seemed particularly interested in the lovely ladies and asked if they were sisters, while The Situation (rocking his shades indoors, natch) stayed quiet and seemed "kind of shy," unlike his MTV persona.
When the ladies said they were, Vinnie piped in that he and Pauly could make out with them. "Pauly is really interested in you," Vinnie said, gesturing to one.
Alas, their potential hookups had to board their flight and no spit or numbers were swapped.
While the Jersey crew is filming in Italy currently, they won't be there spending all summer abroad.
The gang returns to the States June 20, and Pauly D will be begin his DJ residency at the Palms in Las Vegas on June 23.
