Now that half of the Jersey Shore cast has been confirmed to make an appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 6, we have to wonder about the other half. What could be keeping them from their Season 6 promotional duties?

So far, Pauly D, Ronnie, The Situation, and Deena Nicole are confirmed to walk the red carpet and represent.

Snooki has the best excuse for skipping the event, considering she just became the proud mom of little Lorenzo two days ago (August 26). Since she’s wearing adult diapers at the moment, we can forgive the meatball for staying in with her new family.

That leaves Vinny, JWOWW, and Sammi without any specific reason not to attend. JWOWW is baby ‘Enzo’s godmother, and she’s rumored to be filming Snooki & JWOWW Season 2 with Snooki in Manchester, NJ right now. The show’s camera crew was even spotted following the BFFs into the hospital on delivery day.

As for Sammi, we would think that if Ron Ron can go, then Sammi could too. In the last few days, she’s mostly been tweeting photos of her pup, and promising “exciting things ahead” that she “can’t wait to show” everyone.

And how could Vinny miss a chance to hang out with Pauly? We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the whole gang (perhaps minus Snooks) shows up.
