The fans of Jersey Shorecan now breathe a huge sigh of relief as America’s favorite fist pumpers will be returning for a third season of the hit show!
News and reports of a strike hit the web this week as TMZ reported the entire cast refused to film home scenes for the third season because they wanted a raise from MTV. The cast wanted $30,000 per episode, a 200% raise from the $10,000 per episode they earned for the 2nd season.
It seems MTV is very confident in this cast because the 2nd season has yet to air! It is however set to debut on July 29. No word yet on how much the cast will actually receive from MTV. TMZ did report some of the more popular cast members aka Snooki, The Situation, will get more money than their peers. Angelina will not be back for season 3.
In other Shore news, Snookicovers this month’s issue of Steppin’ Out magazine, and dishes on her castmates and the downfalls of fame.
“Myself, Pauly, Vinny and Jenny [J-Woww], we’ve all stayed the same,” she says in the new issue of Steppin’ Out magazine. “We’re the closet friends in the house. I trust them with my life…It hasn’t gotten to our heads.”
Snooki, 22, says she realizes she and The Situation are more popular than their co-stars. “I know the others want the same opportunities that Mike and I get, but we don’t control those things,” she says. “The media isn’t asking for the others so they can’t really be mad at me.”
After acknowledging DJPauly D‘s rising stature as a DJ andJenni “Jwoww” Farley‘s fashion line, Snooki adds, “I can understand why the others might be jealous. They aren’t doing anything, but they should still be happy for me.”
Snooki also gives her sob story touches on the pitfalls of fame. “I miss my old life,” she sighs. “I miss being able to be around my family and at home. I miss going out with my friends and going out to a bar. I can’t do that anymore. When I try to do that, I get attacked by the fans.”
It seems drama always seems to follow Snooki wherever she goes. The latest is now that the break out star of Jersey Shorewas involved in a bar fight over the weekend and got a drink thrown at her.
According to RadarOnline, the newly single MTV reality star, 22, was doing shots with her co-star Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, 23, at Ocean’s 10 bar in Miami this past Saturday when a man approached her.
“She was in a good mood, but this particular guy was obviously interested and she wasn’t,” said a witness to Radar. “She told him, ‘Don’t f— with me’ so he snatched her drink and walked off.”
“I guess he provoked her by wanting an apology and she flipped out,” the witness continued. Snooki then reached for food on her table and threw it at the guy before slapping him on his shoulder and his face, and tossing a plastic cup at him.
In response, the unidentified man reached for his own drink and drenched Snooki, much to her anger. Security ended up throwing him out.
The Jersey Shore cast continues to film its second season in Miami. It is set to debut July 29th on MTV.
TMZ is confirming that a deal has finally been struck between the cast of Jersey Shore and MTV.
All the cast members are expected to return. According to TMZ, Vinny, Ronnie and JWoww accepted the $10,000 per episode offer. No word on if the other cast members will also be paid the same amount.
Though a deal has been agreed to in principle, lawyers for the cast are still trying to hammer out certain terms of the deal. Apparently, one of the main issues is how many paid club appearances the cast members will be able to do each week. Snooki, Pauly D and The Situation want the right to appear at as many as four clubs and other venues a week ..
As we reported earlier, some of the cast members are able to pull between $7,500 – $10,000 per club appearance.
