Is New Jersey finally turning on its most famous and notorious guidettes?

Newark mayor Cory Booker is the latest city official to ban Jersey Shore's Snooki and JWoww from shooting their spinoff in one the Garden State's cities.

Newark's GTL diss comes on the heels of Hoboken's thumb's down, when mayor barred the Team Meatball gals last month from bringing their train-wreck shenanigans there.

Looks like Snooki's kooky charm and JWoww's wow are fading faster than a bad tan…

The Star-Ledger reports that Booker sent this missive to the show's producers in response to their request for a shooting permit:

"While we appreciate your desire to film and capture the essence of our great city, we are confident that the filming of this show will most certainly attract a high level of local and national attention and notoriety."

The mayor also added, "I hope you can appreciate that my first priority is the safety and well-being of citizens and visitors," alluding to concerns that the city's law-enforcement and emergency resources would be needlessly strained by responding to show-related disturbances.

Snooki and JWoww did catch a break earlier this month when Jersey's City's mayor, Jerramiah Healy, allowed the duo to shoot there.

But that hasn't stopped locals from shunning them: According to reports, local business have put up "No Snooki" signs, and several bars have refused the stars entry.

Guess every Meatball has an expiration date.
