PASADENA, California (Hollywood Reporter) - "Jersey Shore" executive producer Sally Ann Salsano is a tough Long Island chick that has much in common with her infamous characters. She pulls no punches and tells no white lies.

But she admits she's slightly apprehensive about the show's third season premiere Thursday night on MTV.

"I always get a little nervous," she tells The Hollywood Reporter. "Once you start drinking your own Kool-Aid you're in trouble."

So she was relieved to see what the "Jersey Shore" production team had in the can for season three.

"I saw it and I said, we're ready to go," Salsano said.

Indeed, one of the highlights of season three - which is back in Seaside Heights - will apparently be Snooki getting arrested after a drunken scene at the beach.

But the pressure is nevertheless on as MTV begins to milk the "Jersey Shore" franchise, recently announcing the first official spinoff with Pauly D. And the show is coming off a second season of record ratings that saw it become TV's No. 1 show among young viewers (12-34) last summer.   Continued...
