UPDATE: Apparently MTV has even less sympathy for the Jersey Shore cast than we do! The show’s producers are getting sick and tired of the cast’s demands for more money, and one source tells TMZ: “The show is not about famous rich people with managers coming to the Shore.” In fact, producers are considering cutting most of the cast loose, as The Situation, Snooki and Pauly D are really the only three they can’t afford to lose.
It’s the news every hardworking American longs to hear — seven twentysomethings who do nothing but drink and start fights are demanding more money before beginning to film the new season of their show. That’s right, the Jersey Shore kids have gone on strike today according to TMZ who reports, “The cast was supposed to begin shooting ‘at home’ scenes today for season three, but we’re told JWoww, Ronnie, Sammi, Pauly D and Vinny — who are spread out between New York and Rhode Island — told the crews they weren’t shooting without new contracts.” Please, please, please fire them MTV!
Sources go on to tell TMZ that, “the cast feels they can make more money doing appearances for two months, rather than filming the show.” Who are these people that are interested in attending events the Jersey Shore cast is at and thus subsidizing these appearance fees? Wouldn’t the presence of a girl in a beehive, I mean bump-it, kartwheeling through a bar with no underwear be a deterent to attending?
Either way, I am sure MTV can find 7 other young adults willing to get drunk on camera. I can even recommend some.
