The Situation

Everyone seems to be a fan of MTV’s Jersey Shore these days, including Jill Zarin of the Real Housewives of NYC. By the way, the 3rd season is set to premier March 4th on Bravo.

“I’m addicted,” Zarin told E! News last night at the Human Rights Campaign’s Sundance Film Festival party. Jill goes on to state the obvious by saying, “If there wasn’t all that press about how we shouldn’t watch it, I probably wouldn’t have.”

Jill has also found her favorite cast member in Mike The Situation, and her reason for liking Mike is a bit humorous. “The Situation reminds of Bethenny [Frankel] with the one-liners. It’s amazing; he comes up with these one-liners and sayings just like Bethenny.”

And speaking of Bethenny, what does Jill have to say about those pesky rumors and reports that the two have become fast enemies…

“It was a really rough four months for me, probably the roughest four months of my life emotionally,” Jill says about the time she spent filming the new season of the Real Housewives.

You can read more about Bethenny and Jill’s drama here!

Jill doesn’t get any more specific about her beef with Bethenny as the housewives aren’t allowed to get into specifics about any of the drama (or anything else about the show) until the season premiere, but Jill did say, “I’m scared. The drama, the meanness and the cattiness…There were a lot of ups and downs.”

According to reports, things have gotten bad to the point that Jill might not be attending Bethenny’s upcoming wedding.

From what I’ve heard and read, things are were very ugly between Jill and Bethenny. Definitely can’t wait for the 3rd season to premier!

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.

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.

It seems all attempts by Italian groups and lawmakers to get Jersey Shore taken off the air has only helped propel the MTV show into being more popular.

Case in point – the Jersey Shore cast is currently on the cover of PEOPLE this week.  The ratings for the show have also gone through the roof as the show is now averaging over 2 million viewers a week.

The cast has also been able to catapult the show’s popularity into cold hard cash. According to TMZ, the show’s break out star, Nicole aka Snooki is generating a $10,000 fee to make club appearances.  Her fellow castmates, DJ Pauly D and Mike aka The Situation are also able to generate $7,500 per club appearance.

It gets even better as sources tell TMZ The Situation is booked every weekend for the next two months!  Guess it really pays to be a Guido/Guidette.
