Is the Jersey Shore cast getting ready to take their fist pumping to Miami? It seems so, as multiple reports reveal the cast is planning to relocate to Miami to film it’s second season.
Just weeks after the cast and MTV negotiated a nice payday (a reported $10,000 per episode), it’s being reported the network is in talks to rent out a house on Lincoln Road for this season’s filming. Snooki also tweeted days ago that she is moving to Miami. Past reports reveal MTV wants to start filming in March.
In other news, it seems 22 year old Snooki has finally found a “juiced up guido” to call her own. Snooki reveals she has found love in new boyfriend Emilio Masella, a 22 year old personal trainer at the Gold’s Gym in New Haven, Conn.
The two met on facebook over a year ago and became exclusive just days ago. Masella tells PEOPLE. “We started talking online again before the show even started airing and started hanging out again.”
According to Snooki, she and Emilio are the “sexiest couple I have ever seen in my entire life.”
Last we heard from the attentionwhore known as Heidi Montag, she informed us she was heading back to her hometown of Crested Butte, Colorado, to visit her mother, Darlene Egelhoff, for the first time since undergoing 10 cosmetic procedures in one day.
“I was nervous, but also excited … I never thought in my wildest dreams she was going to react the way she did,” Mrs. Pratt, 23, told PEOPLE.
The mother daughter reunion – which was filmed for The Hills – was less than joyous according to Heidi. “She was looking at me almost like a zoo animal. It wasn’t like I was her daughter anymore. She was looking at me like I was a circus freak,” says Heidi.
“I think she was most upset that Spencer was there for me and she wasn’t. She was saying how sad it is that my confidence is gone because of the music industry I’m trying to get into.”
Heidi, who’s first album release sold less than 1,000 it’s first week, then goes on to say she has zero regrets about the surgeries despite still being in pain. “I wanted to be the most beautiful, inside and out. It’s part of being a pop star,” she says.

First comes fame, then comes the pitfalls of fame. It seems Jersey Shore’s Snooki is now experiencing the later as RadarOnline is reporting that nude photos and videos of the 21 year old reality star have now gone up for sale.
According to Radar, Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, is featured in the self-snapped nude photos and video that are currently being shopped around to various media outlets.
It seems RadarOnline has seen these photos and according to them, Snooki took the steamy shots and footage herself, appears in her bedroom in one photo, kneeling with one hand on the floor and the other grabbing her bed frame. And according to Radar, another photo is simply too raunchy to describe.
Snooki is however denying this as she took to her twitter page yesterday to post the following – “Idk [I don't know] where radar online comes up with their stories … weirdos.” She continued, “Like i said before about my supposed ‘sex tape’…There are no nude pictures nor will there ever be. the tabloids just love snook gossip ;]”
RadarOnline is however certain the photos are indeed of Snooki. Just last week, Radar also reported nude photos of castmember J-Woww were also being shopped around.
In other Shore news, TMZ is reporting the second season which is now scheduled to begin filming in March, will be filmed at a new location. Evidently, the Jersey Shore is too cold at this time of the year, and MTV is looking into other locations to film season 2. TMZ also confirms that search has expanded out of the country, as MTV Producers have called the cast members to make sure they have valid passports.

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.
UPDATE - A MTV Exec confirms the entire cast will be returning for a 2nd season and also reveals it will be filmed at a different location.
“Our audience has fallen in love with ‘Jersey Shore’ and its amazing cast who have really grown together as a family” said Tony DiSanto, President of Programming for MTV. “That bond gives the show its heart, and we’re thrilled to reunite these friends to bring fans more of what they love — laughs, love, drama and of course GTL.”
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.
It’s becoming difficult to keep up with Heidi Montag and her lies. First she claimed her mom was upset over her multiple plastic surgeries (Heidi, 23, had breast implants, a brow lift, botox in her forehead, a nose job revision, fat injections in her cheeks, a chin reduction, neck liposuction and had her ears pinned back.), however she is now singing a different tune by revealing her plans to get her mother plastic surgery.
In a new interview with Nightline, the liarHills star completely backtracks on her past comments and even claims her mom was well aware of her plans to have 10 cosmetic procedures in one day. “I’ve had this conversation with her several times. So I think she knew,” she says. “I already heard what she had to say.”
Heidi says the only thing she didn’t tell her mother was the date of her surgery because she “didn’t want it to be a circus. And I didn’t want it to be crazy media outside my house.”
And we can be sure to expect some mommy daughter plastic surgery bonding in the near future as Heidi reveals her plans to get her mother under the knife. “Actually, she was excited for me and she’s asking me … for her surgery next,” says Heidi. “So for Mother’s Day, I have to ask [surgeon] Dr. Frank Ryan if he’ll do the mommy makeover.”
The Jersey Shore cast might be a lot of things but when it comes to their money, the cast is proving to be much smarter than most would give them credit for.
TMZ is reporting that the entire cast has rejected an offer from MTV to do a second season. Sources connected with the negotiation say MTV offered Snooki, Pauly D, “The Situation” and the others each a $10,000 signing bonus and promised to pay them $5,000 per episode to do a season two of the hit show.
The cast however rejected the offer and made it clear that they were negotiating “Friends” style … meaning everyone would get the same amount and it had to be a lot higher than MTV’s offer.
The sources reveal MTV came back and doubled the offer to $10,000 an episode. So far, the cast has yet to respond to the new offer.
Some of the cast members of The Hills are getting paid a whooping $100,000 per episode, which should give the Jersey Shore cast some leverage considering their ratings doubles that of the Hills. They averaged over 4.8 million viewers just last week.
An MTV spokesperson would not comment on the negotiations and MTV has yet to officially comment on a season two. TMZ also reports MTV has received thousands of tapes from wanna be Guidos and Guidettes wanting to be on the show.
As much as I like this cast, I’m not sure having them all back for a 2nd season would be a good idea. They have become too famous and I’m guessing the show will become too fake and scripted for a season 2, The Hills anyone? I think it would be better to do a Real World format, and bring back an entirely new cast for a 2nd season.
UPDATE - TMZ is also reporting that MTV has given the cast until the end of Monday (today) to accept the offer, or they will be replaced. This is allegedly a ploy by MTV to try to divide and conquer the cast. Apparently, the cast members who accept the offer will be on the 2nd season, and the ones who don’t will be replaced. We will be sure to keep you updated on this.
TELL US – SHOULD MTV BRING BACK THIS CAST FOR A 2ND SEASON OR CAST SOME NEW PEOPLE?
Apparently, Heidi Montag’smom is mortified that her 23 year old daughter underwent 10 cosmetic surgery procedures in one day to look like a completely different person. The Hills’star even revealed to PEOPLE magazine that she kept her surgery plans secret from friends and family.
Nine weeks after her drastic transformation, Heidi claims she is now dealing with the horrified reaction of the general public her mom, Darlene Egelhoff.
“I still can’t believe I’m 23 and mom is reacting this way,” says Heidi. “I’m nervous to go home and face her – especially with cameras rolling.” Heidi herself A source close to the family tells PEOPLE that Heidi’s mom Darlene “is horrified and having a total breakdown. She can’t wait to confront Heidi when she goes home.”
It seems Heidi’s mom will be getting her wish soon as “Heidi is planning to head back to her small town of Crested Butte very soon,” says the source. And not to worry as MTV cameras will be there to capture every tender moment for the Hills.
In other news, Bravo housewives are also sharing their opinions on Heidi’s new face and body.
Gretchen Rossi had the following to say – “She looks like a Cat Woman now! The one eyebrow just goes so far up now. The eye looks weird to me now.” The OC star star told RadarOnline. “She didn’t need it. She was beautiful. She was really such a pretty girl. What is she 23 or 24?”
Alexis McCord of the NYC Housewives also had the following to say about Heidi – “It does not set a good example to her fans,” she told Radar. “One thing I have learned from doing this show is that people really do judge or commend you.” She continues, “And there are a lot of young impressionable women that watch her show. It is terrible to think that a young woman with body issues could be watching it, see her transformation and commend her thinking that having surgery is the answer.”
