Just days after the news broke that Jwoww was planning to pose for Playboy, a new report now reveals the amount the Jersey Shore star stands to make.
According to RadarOnline, the Playboy offer for Jwoww aka Jenni Farley is $400,000! Radar adds that the deal is yet to be finalized and may face some obstacles due to Jwoww’s contract with MTV.
“Talks have been going on for a long time now and the highest offer she has received is $400,000,” reveals a source. RadarOnline also reports that the negotiations began at $200,000 with the $400,000 offer being contingent on full nudity.
Jwoww confirmed the Playboy news to E! Online last week, telling the site she hoped to pose during winter time.
Get ready to see a whole lot more of Jenni Farley aka Jwoww.
E! News is reporting that the Jersey Shore star is ready to pose nude in Playboy magazine. Jwoww confirms the news to the site, stating she is in the final negotiation stages.
“Final offer is standing,” said JWoww. “Hopefully, it will go through.” As for when she plans to take the photos, Jwoww replied “winter.”
So is Jwoww planning to show everything? “I don’t know yet,” she said. “It hasn’t been talked about yet.” And with the third and likely final season featuring the original cast of Jersey Shore all wrapped up, Jwoww and Snooki make it clear they are open to having a spin-off together. “It would be us just living together,” Snooki said, “and trying to make a living.”

Slow news day folks. Two cast members of the mega hit show – Jersey Shore dropped a bombshell on Tuesday, when they both revealed they are not even Italian!
Snooki and fellow castmateJ-Woww appeared on Fox News’ The Strategy Room, during which J-Woww revealed she was Spanish and Irish, and not Italian. Even more shocking, she also shared that “Nicole isn’t and [castmate Ronnie Magro] is not full Italian either.” By the way, Nicole is Snooki.
So what nationality is Nicole/Snooki — who regularly describes herself as a Guidette — well that answer is Chilean.
It’s safe to say Italian-American groups will not be happy with the revelation of this latest tidbit. Mainly because they were already complaining about the use of the terms “Guido” on the show, which they had always believed to be widely offensive to Italian Americans. The show perpetuates “negative stereotypes,” UNICO National President Andre DiMino told Fox last year.
“If you replace Italian-Americans with any other ethnic group, would they use such a pejorative term to promote the show?” he continued.
This could prove to be rather controversial, as it will be interesting to see how people feel, mostly Italian Americans, about non Italians using the terms “Guido” and “Guidettes.”

Negotiations are still taking place between the cast of Jersey Shore and MTV.
As we previously reported, MTV offered the cast each a $10,000 signing bonus along with $5,000 per episode to return for a 2nd season. The cast decided to reject that offer, leading MTV to then increase the offer to $10,000 per episode along with the 10 Gs signing bonus.
The HollwoodReporter is now reporting that the cast is close to reaching a deal with MTV. According to the report, the fact that MTV raised the offer made for a positive turn in negotiations. A deal is expected to be reached by the end of this week.
Apparently MTV is eager to get the cast shooting the new season, which they hope to air in July or August.
The main issue now is a production hurdle, as the show is based during the summer but MTV wants to air it during the summer time. It seems MTV will likely film the 2nd season during the winter or spring.
In other Shore news, RadarOnline is reporting that nude pictures of cast member Jwoww, real name Jenni Farley, are being shopped around. No word yet on who is shopping around the images or whether any media outlet has purchased these raunchy images.
UPDATE - TMZ is reporting 2 of the cast members have accepted MTV’s offer. Those cast members are Ronnie and JWoww. The latest is MTV is now drawing a hard line by saying it’s do or die. The cast members that don’t accept the offer by tomorrow will be replaced.
Tonight’s episode of MTV’s hit show Jersey Shore will feature another run in with the law. This time around, it involves cast member Ronnie Magro, who was arrested back in September after getting into a fight with another man in front of MTV’s cameras.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was arrested on Sept. 4 for aggravated assault for striking a man with a closed fist. Ronnie, 24, tells PEOPLE that though the charges have now been dismissed, he did spend a few hours in jail, had a mug shot taken and paid about $600 for bail.
Ronnie claims he was provoked while he was walking home from a bar with Snooki and their costar Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola. According to Ronnie, the other person involved in the fight was being disrespectful to his friends, shouted “racist” remarks at their African-American security guards and might have spat on him. He however regrets the incident, “I definitely felt out of place,” he says of being in jail. “It’s definitely a place I never want to go back to again. Definitely a lesson learned.”
Still A Couple – In other news, Ronnie and his girlfriend from the show, Sammie Sweetheart are surprisingly still going strong. The pair confirms to PEOPLE that they are indeed still together and care very much for each other. “I care about her deeply and I see it going for a long time,” Ronnie says. “I don’t really want to jinx anything [but] I love being with her. I have a best friend that’s my girlfriend, which is really hard to find.”
Adds Sammie: “I’m very happy and content with my life right now. Things are just amazing and I’m just gonna go with it.”
Jenni “J-WOWW” Farley, has also reconciled with her boyfriend Tom, despite cheating on him with costar DJ Pauly D on the show. Jenni says all is well with their relationship and he moved in four months ago.
And finally, the ladies of the show stripped off their 5035 20 pounds of make up for a makeunder photo-shoot courtesy of In Touch magazine.
From left to right, Jenni “J-Woww” Farley, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, and Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola — who swear by eyeliner, bronzer, and lip gloss — ditched their make up for the shoot. Must say Snooki looks the best, she should consider making this look permanent.
MTV is once again stirring up controversy with the debut of their new show – Jersey Shore. The show, which follows a group of 20 something year old Italians as they live and work on the Garden State’s shoreline, has been criticized by some Italian American groups as being offensive and reinforcing stereotypes of Italian-Americans.
UNICONational — the “Largest Italian American Service Organization in the USA” — claims they “can’t keep up with the volume of calls” from “outraged” Italian Americans. They added that it should be pulled from the air. The backlash doesn’t end there, as advertisers – Domino’s and American Family Insurance have requested that their ads be pulled from the show.
MTVhowever continues to stand by the show. “We understand that this show is not intended for every audience and depicts just one aspect of youth culture,” MTV’s spokesman told Fox News on Tuesday. “Our intention was never to stereotype, discriminate or offend.”
The cast of Jersey Shore can be seen continuously referring to themselves as “Guidos” and “Guidettes” on the show. Both terms have long been found to be offensive to Italians.
One of the cast members, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, however defends the use of the term ‘Guido.’ “The older generation doesn’t understand. These days in New York and New Jersey a ‘guido’ is a good-looking Italian male that likes to have fun and a ‘guidette’ is a good-looking Italian girl,” Mike tells EW.com.
I actually saw the premier episode of this show and was a bit surprised to see the term “Guido,” be used so frequently by the cast. Always assumed the term was offensive. Other than that, the show pretty much fell in line with all the other MTV reality shows, such as the Real World. It was pretty much the same formula – follow a group of 20 something year olds as they get drunk, and make complete asses of themselves on national television. It’s likely the show is here to stay as it premiered to rather good ratings, the premier episode was seem by a total of 1.4 million viewers.
