MTV Jersey Shore

Jersey Shore 2

The fans of Jersey Shore can 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.


Snooki on Steppin' Out magazine

In other Shore news, Snooki covers 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 DJ Pauly D‘s rising stature as a DJ and Jenni “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 MTV might have learned a thing or two from the last time they had to negotiate with the Jersey Shore cast.

As we reported yesterday, the JS cast is currently on strike, and refusing to film for the all new 3rd season.  The reason? They cast wants more money, more than the $10,000 per episode they got for season 2.

During the negotiations for the 2nd season, the cast decided to take a Friends approach by all sticking together and striking a deal together.  Things are however different this go around as TMZ is reporting some of the popular cast members, aka The Situation and Snooki are being offered more money than the rest.

The first to take the bait? The Situation according to a new TMZ report.  His manager confirmed yesterday that he has signed a new deal for the third season.  And how much does he stand to make?  Just a mere $27,500 to $45,000 per episode.  Not bad for a kid who calls himself ‘The Situation.’

As for the rest of the cast, the strike rages on.  A new report by the Hollywood Reporter however states a new deal should be reached any day now.

The cast asked MTV for $30,000 per episode — a 200% raise, and it seems MTV is caving in by countering with a number that’s close to that figure.  Sources also tell TMZ that MTV thinks they have “magic in a bottle” with this group and would like to keep the cast intact.

Is a Jersey Shore star getting ready to follow in the footsteps of Sex Tape Queen Danielle Staub? It seems so.

Multiple media outlets are reporting DJ Pauly D has several sex tapes floating around. Popcrunch reports the amateur tapes are said to be with a Canadian model he met this year while doing promotion for the first season of the MTV hit show.

“It is being revealed that they filmed a few sex videos while together – Our insiders say the girl in question has no intent on selling the recordings… But we all know eventually they will come out!!,” adds the ZackTaylor blog.


Jersey Shore Village Voice cover

In other Shore news, the other Jersey fellas are also making headlines but for very different reasons. Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Vinny Gaudagnino can be seen gracing the new cover of the Village Voice magazine which caters to gay men.

The magazine cover photo, which hit stands this week under the banner “Queer Issue” and above the headline “The Guido Ideal” — a story about “gay Jersey guidos on the down-low,” has led to some whispers and questions about the guys’ sexuality, but not so fast reports the NYPost.

The Post is reporting the guys were not aware what they were posing for and had no idea they were being photographed for the Queer cover. A source from the mag also adds, “The paper’s not saying the cover boys are gay, just that that they’re hot.”

The guys however seem to be good sports about the cover and The Situation was even quoted in the past as saying: “I’ll be honest, I like the attention [from gay men]. I’m flattered if there are guys with different preferences that have crushes on me.”

MTV Jersey Shore

MTV has finally decided on a location for the second season of their mega hit reality show Jersey Shore. The new season will be filmed in Miami, reports the Miami Herald.

There had been numerous reports and speculations in the past couple of months on where the 2nd season would be filmed. The Jersey Shore was not an option because MTV wanted to start filming this month, and needed a warmer climate.

According to the Miami Herald, some locals did protest MTV bringing the show to their home town, but despite their cries, it is said to be a done deal. The 2nd season of Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami is also currently filming in Miami. Perhaps we will have some reality cross contamination with the two shows.

The new season is scheduled to begin filming in 2 weeks.

Jersey Shore Cast

The finale of MTV’s hit show – Jersey Shore aired last night and many fans are wondering what is next for the cast.

UsWeekly caught up with the cast members who revealed their future plans. As we reported earlier, Snooki claims to be in talks to get her own reality or dating show. She even said she has an offer from VH1.

As for Jenni “J-Woww, she has received a nice offer to pose for playboy. “I got a really good offer from Playboy,” J-Woww said “But I’m going to hold off and see.”

DJ Pauly D is also considering stripping for Playgirl. “I’m just trying to get my head straight right now!” he told Us. (But after Snooki said she’d want to see that issue, Pauly D responded, “If she buys it, I’m gonna do it!”)

Mike “The Situation reveals he’s “got an offer to do something for primetime TV… like a sitcom of some sort. I think it may be a sketch comedy, or, like, the real deal. Something that’s really awesome… it’s a big thing!”

As for the show’s couple – Ronnie and Sammi – it seems they might really be done for good this time (they broke up during the reunion show when Ronnie saw some unseen footage of Sammi talking/flirting with The Situation.) TMZ is reporting Ronnie hosted a party last week and was photographed creeping with making out some random girls.

It will be interesting to see how MTV deals with doing a 2nd season, which is sure to come considering 4 million viewers tuned in last week. MTV is said to be considering bringing back this cast for season 2, or bringing in new people similar to the Real World formula.

The Jersey Shore cast is proof that all publicity is good publicity, as the strong and loud criticism from lawmakers and Italian groups has only helped propel the show and it’s cast into being very popular. Plus with the very high ratings, the show will certainly be returning for a 2nd season.

The entire cast of Jersey Shore spent some time in Los Angeles recently, and paid a visit to the Chelsea Lately show during their LA stay. Though Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino clashed on last week’s episode of the shore when he made fun of her “rolls,” the two seem to have now kissed and made up, literally. As previews for tonight’s finale episode show the two hooking up in a hot-tub.

It seems their new found “friendship” might have continued post show when on E!’s Chelsea Lately, host Chelsea Handler asked Snooki and The Situation if they’ve hooked up. “Yeah, yeah, yeah,” he replied. But it’s not a big deal according to Snooki. “It’s not awkward at all,” she said. “If I wanna make out with him right now, I can. It’s not weird.”

The Situation also clarified what “hooking up” means. “On the show, it’s just a kiss,” he said. “But sometimes, on the road, it’s a little more than that. We save the special stuff for on the road,” he jokingly said. When asked if he’s gotten luckier with the ladies since appearing on the show, he smiled. “I like to think [I was popular with women] before the show,” he said. “But after the show, it’s been a Situation.”

The cast also hit up West Hollywood hot spot Voyeur, during which Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio said they partied with Lindsay Lohan and “Lindsay’s mom,” Dina. They were however the most star struck when they met Leonardo DiCaprio.

“It was weird, ‘cuz we were with Kevin Connelly the whole night, and he took us over to his VIP table, and there was someone with a hat pulled down, and it was Leo,” he said. “All of a sudden, he looks up and goes ‘GTL, baby!’ And I was like ‘Yeah!’”

“GTL” is Jersey Shore-slang for “Gym, tan, laundry.”

There are also talks of Snooki, the break out star of the show, getting her own reality show. According to Snooki, she has received numerous offers to have her own reality or dating show.

“Definitely there is no set thing, but it has been talked about,” Snooki told UsMagazine. “I got offers from VH1 and other reality networks,” said Snooki, 21.

Even though a lot of people don’t seem to be fans of MTVs controversial show Jersey Shore, the ratings still continue to rise. Some companies including Domino’s and Dell have pulled their advertising, reports Usmagazine. However, one of the stars of the show isn’t keeping quiet amidst all the controversy, instead the Jersey Shore star Nicole Polizzi (a.k.a. “Snooki“) is saying people who aren’t interested in watching the show should stay away.

“I just have one thing to say to Domino’s, Dell, UNICO and all the other haters out there,” she yelled. “F*** you! If you don’t want to watch, don’t watch. Just shut the hell up! I’m serious… F*** you!”

The controversial MTV reality show follows a group of 20 something year old Italians as they live and work on the Garden State’s shoreline. The Italian-American organization (UNICO) claims that the show perpetuates negative stereotypes and should be pulled off the air. They also want sponsors to boycott the series.

“She is not an embarrassment to Italian Americans — she is actually an embarrassment to the entire human race!!!!” UNICO released in a statement.

In addition to UNICO and advertisers bashing the MTV series, the New Jersey beach town also released a statement saying it doesn’t “solicit” or “promote” the filming of Jersey Shore.

One thing is for sure, if ratings continue to increase like they have then this shore isn’t going off the air anytime soon.

In other news, the Jersey Shore cast received a makeover from Life&Style magazine. The photo of the cast is below –

New Jersey lawmakers are the latest group to get on the anti Jersey Shore bandwagon.

The AP is reporting that the the New Jersey Italian American Legislative Caucus, sent a letter to the president of Viacom, MTV’s parent company on Tuesday. Caucus chairman Joseph Vitale is asking that the show be immediately taken off the air.

The group believes the show promotes derogatory ethnic stereotypes and is “wildly offensive.” The NJ lawmakers are also asking advertisers to boycott the show. As of Wednesday, MTV has yet to issue a response.
