Jersey Shore Cast Members Tell Mtv to Suck It

Written by , Posted in General

The cast of Jersey Shore might not be so dumb after all.  They have all decided not to return to Jersey for the second half of Season 2, due to contract squabbles.  Here’s what happened.  Mtv decided to get pretty crafty and broke up Season 2 into two halves.  The cast is arguing that the second half of Season 2 is actually Season 3 in disguise, and they deserve more money.  Mtv was initially going to negotiate more money for the second half (being the nice guys that they are over there), but the cast will only negotiate as a group, and they refuse to take different salaries.  Mtv wants individual deals, and so it’s war.  Mtv basically said that they only agreed to renegotiate the second half out of kindness, so the cast is contractually bound to show up for work.  If they don’t, legal gets involved.  Isn’t this so much fun?  Here’s what I know — Jersey Shore is the best thing that Mtv has had on its network in a very long time.  So in the words of Tim Gunn, “make it work.”
