Lisa LoCicero to Guest Star on Bones' Jersey Shore Episode

at . Comments

Think Jersey Shore and General Hospital with a little Real Housewives sprinkled in... then mixed together Bones style. The third episode of the coming season (which premieres September 23), features Brennan and Booth investigating a fitness guru's death.

The case of Ritchie “The V” Genaro brings soap opera star Lisa LoCicero on board as Janine Genaro, the mother of the deceased. “Think Victoria Gotti meets Real Housewives Of New Jersey,” a source says of LoCicero’s character.

Lisa LoCicero is coming from General Hospital to Bones.

As for the Jersey Shore tie-in? LoCicero could play mom to no less than the MTV show's own Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, who's been approached to play Ritchie.

“We’re not sure if it’ll actually happen or not,” series boss Hart Hanson said of bringing The Situation quotes to this guest starring role on Bones. “Talks are ongoing.”

This Bones episode – titled “The Maggots In The Meathead” – will riff heavily on Jersey Shore, according to Fancast. The tribute/mockery of the reality series will include a scene featuring a fist-pumping club mix of the Bones theme song.

Bones Quotes

Sometimes the best things in life happen against the odds.


Booth: I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here, look, um, hey. Do you remember the last time that we were here? Standing right around in this spot? It was right in the beginning before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you because you were irritating me and, uh, you chased me down, and you caught up to me and I said to you 'listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row' and you said to me--
Brennan: I can be a duck.
Booth: Yeah. You know we had been chasing each other for a long time. Chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and snakes. And now chasing you has been the smartest thing that I have ever done in my life. And being chased by you has been my greatest joy. But now, we, uh, we don't have to chase each other anymore because we caught each other.
