The Situation

Jersey Shore 3 Cast

After the widely reported contract hold outs, all of the Jersey Shore cast members have signed on to return for season 4!

TMZ reports Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and the rest of the gang will be heading to Italy in May to start filming. While TMZ doesn’t state the exact amount the cast will be earning, it does add that everyone is “very pleased with the outcome.”

Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the cast got a HUGE raise! Just how huge? Let’s try over $100,000 per episode! Yes, you read that right. Sources close to the negotiations tell EW members of the “core group” are now pulling down at least $100,000 per episode.

With each season producing an average of 14 episodes, this means a number of the Jersey Shore cast will earn over $1 million each for season 4 to simply drink, party & fight. Wowzers! The cast reportedly earned $30,000 per episode for season 3.

And finally, MTV announced last week it has picked up two Jersey Shore spin-off shows. The first show will focus on DJ Pauly D and his life on the road as “one of the country’s most in-demand DJs.” While the second show will follow BFFs Snooki and JWoww, chronicling their experiences as roommates after their lives on “Jersey Shore.”

MTV has ordered 12 episodes of each spin-off, and plans to debut both shows sometime in 2012.

Those wild and crazy kids of the Jersey Shore are already stirring up some controversy in Italy though they have yet to arrive for the filming of their 4th season.

See while MTV confirmed earlier this year that season four of the super mega hit show will be filmed in Italy, the show had yet to actually air in the country. That all changed this week when the show made its debut on Italian television, and let’s just say the Italians are no fans. In fact, the cast is now on the receiving end of some major backlash.

“They embody the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized,” wrote columnist Roberto Del Bove in Rome newspaper New Notzie.

It only gets worse as a preview of the show posted on an MTV Italia website drew some nastier comments.”When I see this, I wonder whether [Osama] Bin Laden had a point,” lamented one poster, going a bit overboard perhaps.

“Slicked hair, exaggerated narcissism, boundless love for the family and outlandish eccentricity” is what was written about the show in another popular Rome newspaper, Corriere della Sera.

The Italians might be happy to know that only part of the fourth season will be filmed in Italy. This isn’t the first time the Jersey Shore clan has been criticized for their shenanigans as the show also drew major ire from Italian-American groups during their first season, leading to some boycotts by advertisers.

Love them or hate them, the show is definitely here to stay as the season 3 finale last week drew record ratings for MTV, with over 7.6 million viewers tuning in.

Speaking of season 4, RadarOnline is now reporting that there is a contract dispute brewing with some of the cast members. Apparently, cast members “Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and Pauly D have not finalized their contracts because they can’t agree on the amount.”

“As of last week Deena hadn’t signed her contract either but Ronnie, Sammi, and Vinny were done,” reveals a source, um does Deena not realize she’s very expendable?. “Time is short, everyone is getting concerned because they’re supposed to leave for Italy soon, I just hope they can settle it,” the source adds.

The cast also went through contract disputes last year as they went on a short strike before season three; eventually negotiating a 200% raise from $10,000 to $30,000 per episode.

And finally, the reunion show airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c. We will revisit the top moments of the show with the cast and also find out why Sammi and Ronnie broke up again for the 2000th time back in January.

TELL US – THE ITALIANS, THEY HAVE A POINT NO? PLUS THOUGHTS ON THE REUNION SHOW?

It seems former Jersey Shore star Angelina Pivarnick is still a little peeved about the way her former roommates treated her, most notably Mike ‘The Situation‘ Sorrentino, who she now believes is “gay” because of the way he treats women.

“I think Mike is gay,” Angelina states bluntly to Popeater. “I think he’s gay because of the way he talks and the way he abuses girls. He talks down to women.”

Oh but Angelina had more to say, stating her past hook up with The Sitch was pretty lackluster. “I didn’t have sex with him but to be honest with you, to get a girl riled up to the point where you want to have sex, he doesn’t even know how to do that. I honestly feel like he’s in the closet right now; he doesn’t want to come out.”

Wowzers. As for Mike, his rep called Angelina’s comments “ridiculous,” adding that “obviously the only way she can get press is to slander my client. She’s become a circus sideshow. Kinda sad to see.”

In other Shore news, on-again off-again couple Ronnie Magro and Sammi Giancola continue to remain broken up for the moment. And when the HollywoodLife caught up with Ronnie this week, he made it clear he is still ‘Single Ronnie’ and had no plans to apologize to Sammi for the way he treated her on the show.

“I saw the whole season in advance,” Ronnie says. “It is what it is. It happened. You know, you learn from your mistakes and just go from there.” And when it comes to the upcoming 4th season, to be filmed in Italy, Ronnie reveals he is open to anything including hook ups with locals. “We’ll see what happens. We’ll see what it’s got!” said Ronnie.

And on tonight’s all new episode of the Jersey Shore, titled, “A House Divided,” Snooki and Vinny have a falling out; Mike continues to instigate drama between Sammi and Ronnie; Pauly and Vinny try to hook up with Deena’s friend, which doesn’t go over well with Deena.

According to numerous reports, Jersey Shore star The Situation experienced a bit of an ego bruise last night during the taping of “Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump.

See, for some very odd reason, The Situation was made a part of the roast and he ultimately took to the stage at some point to tell his jokes… which bombed badly, to the point that he was booed off the stage. Below is an excerpt of what happened from the LA Times -

“”The Sitch,” as he’s called, deadpanned to [Whitney] Cummings, “I actually wouldn’t call you a grenade because you won’t be blowing up anytime soon.” (Buh-dum-bum!) He told Snoop Dogg that he and Trump had a lot in common because Trump owned a lot of property and Snoop’s ancestors were property. (Snoop did not appear amused.) Before long, the audience began to boo so loudly that comedian Jeffrey Ross, who’s been at this so long he’s known as the Roastmaster General, had to interject into the act to try to save the Situation, who’d already claimed he shared one quality with Ross: “This is my first night doing comedy.” “It’s also your last,” Ross responded, to overwhelming applause.”

In fact, one Comedy Central exec stated The Sitch’s jokes were so bad, that most of his act might be cut from the final broadcast. The roast will air on Comedy Central on March 15. Here’s to hoping the “jokes” will be left in so that we can all laugh at with the Sitch.

In other Shore news, there seems to be a small feud brewing between R & B singer Ne-Yo and Snooki, all stemming from Snooki’s recent Rolling Stone magazine cover.

It all started on Monday when Ne-Yo tweeted, “Wow. Snooki is on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Really? I quit. (Just kidding, but almost serious….).” He later added that he wasn’t trying to diss the Snooks. “I gotta reiterate, no disrespect to Snooki,” he told E! News. “I don’t know her so I can’t disrespect her but I feel like Rolling Stone is a music magazine and for them to put her on the cover, it’s like, ‘Really?!’ “

Snooki however took the diss personally as she tweeted, “Neyo’s mad that I got the cover of rolling stone?…you lost a loyal fan. What a buzz kill.#sorry.” Ne-Yo however seems to be taking the loss of a fan in stride. “I think I’ll be all right,” he smiled upon being told of Snooki’s tweet. “I think I’ll sleep tonight.”

Finally, on tonight’s all new episode titled, “GTF—Gym, Tan, Find Out Who Sammi Is Texting,” things heat up between J-Woww and Roger; Pauly and Vinny take a road trip to Staten Island; and Mike clues Ronnie in on some of Sammi’s suspicious behavior. The episode airs at 10/9c on MTV.

In a new interview featured in the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine, Jersey Shore star Sammi Giancola explains why she took back ex-boyfriend Ronnie Magro after he destroyed all her belongings on the show in a fit of roid rage.

Yes, Ronnie and Sammi got back together following this fight which was filmed last September. In fact, the two had their most recent break up a little over a month ago.

“He’s a good person,” Sammi, 22, says of Ronnie, 25, who stomped on her glasses and called her a “spoiled bitch” during the infamous spat. “Nobody’s perfect. I get out of hand, he gets out of hand.”

UsWeekly adds that while the two remain broken up since January, Sammi has forgiven Ronnie and the two are now talking again. “Sam always has excuses,” a Sammi pal says of the reality star, who started dating Ronnie in summer 2009. “She kept saying that wasn’t the Ronnie she knew. Ronnie was verbally abusive for sure.”

Meanwhile, The Situation appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show this week during which host Ellen qeustioned him about his frequent hook ups on the show.

“In the last three years, how many girls have you kissed?” asked Ellen.”Ummm, really don’t keep count,” The Situation responded. “Do you want to guess?” Ellen went on to guess 1000, after which The Sitch responded, “You never know. That could be close,” he laughed. “I’m joking. I really don’t know.”

And finally, on tonight’s all new episode – the 9th this season — Sammi returns to the house, and Snooki‘s past hookups come back to haunt her. Later, The Situation pranks Snooki and Deena, but the other guys have the last laugh when they ditch him for taking too long to get ready.

While Jersey Shore star Snooki has admitted she developed feelings for her costar Vinny Guadagnino following their hook ups on the show, Vinny is now making it clear those feelings are not reciprocated.

In a new interview with Life & Style magazine, Vinny states that Snooki is not his type. “Living together forces me to sometimes stumble into her bed,” said Vinny. “But she’s not my type physically. But if I [saw her] out in a club, I probably wouldn’t go there.” Ouch.

In other Shore news, it seems The Situation is making plans post Jersey Shore as he hints the yet to be filmed 4th season of the show might be his last. The Sitch reveals he plans on remaining on TV for “another year or so” before moving on. “Hopefully by the end of the year I’ll be in a movie,” The Situation, 28, told E! News.

“It’s like Michael Jordan,” he said, and yes he’s comparing himself to Jordan. “There’s only so long you can keep winning them rings. There’s only so long you can rule the reality world.”

Though as of the moment, the DWTS alum is solely focused on filming season 4 of Jersey Shore in Italy. “I’m actually gonna get me some Rosetta Stone” to learn Italian, he says. “I got two months to learn it. My name comes from Italy so I’ve got a little bit of heritage there. Plus, maybe I can get a hometown Italian chick.” Nice to see The Sitch is always planning ahead.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON VINNY & THE SITUATION’S COMMENTS?

Hours after TMZ broke the news yesterday, MTV officially confirmed that not only will there be a 4th season of Jersey Shore, but it will be filming in Italy!

The MTV press release teases the ladies are excited “to trade gorillas for Italian stallions,”  and that “this wacky and dysfunctional family is about to turn “the beautiful country” upside down.”  More from the press release below -

“While the stateside ‘Jersey Shore’ locales have become iconic for our audience, it’s really the constantly evolving dynamic among the cast that keeps them coming back each season, and Europe is a fresh spin on a show that continues to reach new heights for us,” said Chris Linn, executive vice president of programming and head of production for MTV. “The cast is headed to the birthplace of the culture they love and live by. We can’t wait to see what erupts as a result.”

According to TMZ, MTV began working on getting visas for the entire cast and crew two months ago, and a source reveals the network has already lined up some of Vinny’s Italian relatives to host the Jersey gang for an authentic Guadagnino dinner.

Let’s hope the cast knows how to say ‘Gym, Tan, Laundry’ in Italiano!  Filming is slated to begin in the spring.

Jersey Shore 3

Following the ratings smash of the current and third season of Jersey Shore, a new report now states MTV is working on a 4th season with the same cast.

This news is a bit of a surprise as the network had intended for the 3rd season to the the final one with the original cast, while finding a new cast to keep the franchise going.

According to the HollywoodLife, MTV has been in contact with the current cast members, telling them to keep May 2011 open for filming of the show’s fourth season!

A source close to the negotiations also tells the site that the current contracts of the cast gives MTV the right to bring them back for a fourth season. As of the moment, MTV has yet to choose a destination for filming.

This move by MTV makes a lot of sense as the ratings for this season have been nothing short of phenomenal. The premiere was seen by an astonishing 8.4 million viewers, making it MTV’s most-watched series telecast of all time. Things have yet to slow down as the second episode was seen by 8.6 million viewers.

In other Shore news, TMZ is reporting that Snooki and JWoww might be next in line to get their own spin-off show. The only other cast member with a confirmed spin-off show as this point? DJ Pauly D.

TMZ reports MTV has ordered the two BFFs to film a pilot this weekend, meaning MTV has yet to officially pick up the show, and will only greenlight it if they like the pilot.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON SEASON 4? ARE YOU HAPPY IT’S THE SAME CAST OR DO YOU WANT A NEW CAST? WOULD YOU WATCH A SNOOKI/JWWOW SPINOFF?
