As Wetpaint Entertainment previously reported, residents of Pelican Island, New Jersey have been up in arms over Snooki and JWOWW renting of houses in the area to shoot Season 3 of their MTV reality series, Snooki & JWOWW.

As it turns out, the protests are bringing the two bosom buddies closer together — literally.

“JWOWW and [fiancé] Roger are settled into the home rented for them,” a source tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “But the owners of the house that Snooki, [fiancé] Jionni and the baby [Lorenzo] were supposed to live in are making things difficult. They haven’t been able to move in yet. So for now, everyone is crashing at JWOWW’s house.”

This was how Season 1 worked for the Jersey girls’ series, but last year, we saw them living in their own homes. Looks like we’ll be seeing some more craziness as the two are forced to shack up. “It’s close quarters for sure, but they’re trying to make the best of it,” the source adds.

Earlier this week, however, Snooki temporarily snapped. “Grow up, get over yourself and move on,” she told Pelican Island residents over Instagram. “There's much bigger things to worry about in life than trying to ban my family from your neighborhood.”

Yowza. We hope things settle down soon. Both Snooki and JWOWW have weddings to plan!
