Apparently Snooki and New Jersey's Berkeley Township don't  mix, at least as far as reality TV shows are concerned. Its residents want her and co-star Jwoww banned.

The residents of the New Jersey community have hired an attorney to block the former "Jersey Shore" star's planned summer vacation to its Pelican Island, the Associated Press reported.

A small island community that includes parts of Berkeley Township and Toms River, Pelican Island was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy last October.

The majority of the homes on the island remain vacant with only 25 or so residents having moved back, while others live nearby and are in the process of rebuilding, according to the Star-Ledger of Newark.

The fear among Berkeley resident is that Snooki will bring a circus-like atmosphere to their community as she films the third season of her MTV reality TV show "Snooki & Jwoww."

A spinoff to the popular MTV reality TV show "Jersey Shore," "Snooki & Jwoww" follows "Jersey Shore" alum, Nicole Polizzi aka Snooki and Jennifer Farley aka Jwoww in their day-to-day lives around the Garden State.

"We have nothing against free enterprise or anything like that," Ed Hoffman, a Berkeley Township resident who has lived on Pelican Island for 25 years, told the Star-Ledger. "But you have to have concerns about where this is going to take place. It’s going to take place in a residential neighborhood and it’s going to be overwhelming to the residents."

Hoffman is one of many on the island who remain displaced by Sandy.

Snooki reacted to the resident's attempt to hire an attorney to prevent her from visiting the Jersey Shore community by posting on Instagram this week: "Unable how adults are trying to ban my son, fiancé and I from enjoying our summer at the shore."

"Grow up, get over yourself and move on," Snooki added on Instagram. "This is not how we should be treating one another. Absolutely sick and very sad. I pray for you. There's much bigger things to worry about in life than trying to ban my family from your neighborhood."

The decision to hire an attorney follows an apparently unsuccessful ban attempted during a township council meeting on Monday where more than 40 concerned property owners voiced their opposition to the filming in their community, the Star-Ledger of Newark reported.
