There’s been rumors that MTV have plans to recast Jersey Shore for the past year because everytime a season ends the current cast, which includes Snooki, The Situation, Jwoww and Pauly D, all end up wanting more money for the next coming season but now according to new reports MTV are sick of this and want to recast the show with unknowns.
An insider tells US Weekly that “after this group comes back from Italy and shoots season 5 this summer, that will be the end for them.” Apparently the current cast are now earning around $100,000 per episode for the current season they are filming in Italy at the moment.
The insider also says that on top of saving MTV money this will also mean that the cast can move on and peruse other endeavors which includes spin offs. We already know that the four named above all already have secured themselves spin offs. As for Vinny, Ronny, Deena and Sam they all have still to sign any spinoffs, or even be offered one, but lets face it nobody really cares about them do they?
However while these reports are floating around online MTV are denying all of this. They released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter saying “we love the present cast, and their summer adventures have just begun. We currently have no plans to recast the show.”
I myself think MTV should just cancel the whole thing and try a new type of show. The latest season of Jersey Shore the cast were just trying to do things for a bit of camera time and it all seemed very forced. What do you think?
In case you haven’t heard – the fourth season of MTV’s Jersey Shore is set to start shooting it’s fourth season in Italy pretty soon but it looks like Snooki, The Situation and the rest of the cast are already getting a frosty reception from the locals.
The show only started airing in Italy yesterday and it has already received a ton of backlash because of how the guidos and guidettes and represent a bad stereotype of Italians. One writer says “they embody the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized.”
One person even went as far to say “when I see this, I wonder whether Osama Bin Laden had a point.” Obviously he is taking it a bit to extreme to say that the cast make America deserving of a terrorist attack.
None of this is affecting the cast though who are looking forward to going over to Italy and partying it up, where one club owner said he will definitely let them in. I can’t say I’m surprised they’re looking forward to it though, they are making well over $10,000 an episode as well as getting a free holiday to Italy.
Do you think the Italians are right to be pissed off with the cast and not wanting them in their country or do you think they are taking it a bit too extreme with their opinions?
It seems like Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino has watched the ending scene of Cruel Intentions a little too many times because he has apparently been caught snorting cocaine from his coke chain.
The Fork Party took these photos and video from last weeks episode of Jersey Shore in which The Situation robbed Pauly D’s ex-girlfriend and started getting freaky with her on the dancefloor. But it seems he was doing a bit more than just dancing.
While getting down on the dancefloor The Situation decided to examine his necklace with his nose and also gave the girl a little sniff of it, after that they both wiped their nose. Some people could say it’s coincidence and they both just have a runny nose but I’m willing to bet that they were indeed doing a bit of coke. Thoughts?
Bristol Palin really wants to be a role model, you guys!
During the taping of “Dancing With The Stars”, Bristol was referred to as a “teen activist”. She also filmed a PSA with The Situation, urging people to practice safe sex. Keith Olbermann took offense to Bristol and nailed her on his show (not literally), calling her his Worst Person In The World.
Recently, a left wing commentator named Keith Olbermann attacked me for being a spokesperson for abstinence education and for being an Ambassador for the Candies Foundation, which promotes teen pregnancy awareness and prevention education. He went so far as to call me “the worst person” he knows, apparently, for my efforts to educate teenagers about the real world risks of premarital sex.
Accusing me of hypocrisy is by now, an old canard. What Mr. Olbermann lacks in originality he makes up for with insincere incredulity. Mr. Olbermann fails to understand that in order to have credibility as a spokesperson, it sometimes takes a person who has made mistakes. Parents warn their children about the mistakes they made so they are not repeated. Former gang members travel to schools to educate teenagers about the risks of gang life. Recovered addicts lecture to others about the risks of alcohol and drug abuse. And yes, a teen mother talks about the benefits of preventing teen pregnancy.
I have never claimed to be perfect. If that makes me the “worst person in the world” to Mr. Olbermann, then I must apologize for not being absolutely faultless like he undoubtedly must be.
To Mr. Olbermann let me say this: you can attack me all you want. But you will not stop me from getting my message out about teen pregnancy prevention. And one day, if you ever have a daughter, you may change your mind about me.
CANARD?!?? She did NOT write this. She couldn’t have. It sounds like something Mama Grizzly had concocted so her daughter wouldn’t be perceived as an idiot.

The new issue of Us Weekly lets me know that every decision I’ve made in life so far is the wrong one and instead of working for my money I should be trying to get on a reality show then getting drunk, fighting and partying because they reveal how much the cast of Jersey Shore rake in for public appearances:
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi
The star charges $20,000 to walk an event’s red carpet. She also has hair products and a book in the works.
Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola
She earns $15,000 for event appearances. Plus, “I have beauty and fitness products in the works,” she says.
For party hosting, he gets “$12,000 to $20,000,” says his manager, Matt Cohen, adding that he also has plans to sell his signature drink, “Ron-Ron Juice.”
The house’s most mellow member earns $6,000 an hour to appear at clubs and, a source tells Us, “He’s recording a single.”
Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio
Want to get DJ Pauly D to spin beats at a bash? The going rate is a cool $20,000.
Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino
He’ll earn about $100,000 for “Dancing With the Stars”; his cologne, fitness DVD and endorsement for a nutritional supplement could net him millions.
Jenni “JWoww” Farley
In addition to the $25,000 they each make per show, her Filthy Couture fashion line helps pay the bills.
Angelina “Jolie” Pivarnick
The lowest earner of the bunch ($5,000 for appearances), she has an accessories line under way.

Here is some news that will sure turn your stomach – The Situation, aka Mike Sorrentino, from MTV’s Jersey Shore is set to make more than a whopping $5 million this year.
He will get $60,000 per episode of Jersey Shore after bonus incentives, based on ratings. While event appearances will bring him in $1 million (he gets between $15,000-$50,000 for each one). He’s also going to have a workout video, a chewable supplement line for GNC, a book deal, a rap song for iTunes, endorsements with Reebok, Vitamin Water and a vodka company as well as a clothing line with Dilligaf.
His manager said, “We are really excited about all the opportunities coming Mike’s way, he has been able to secure many endorsement deals, business opportunities and additional television offers based on the success of the show. Our goal has always been to try to build a brand if the situation presented itself. If you are a noncelebrity on a reality show, you are given an opportunity, it’s a platform. You have to use it intelligently.”
This means that he is going to earn more than the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Anna Paquin, Michael Cera and Matthew Morrison.
All this from just drinking, partying and being a douchebag for MTV. Let me go weep for society right now.
