OK if you don’t like the show “Jersey Shore” then I officially think you’re lying. Like, there’s no way I believe you. This thing is 100% pure entertainment. Stupid people acting stupid but with all the drama of a real family times a million. Not to mention the real appeal of the show, which is the fact that despite all the idiocy, the cast is in fact human and does have real feelings. But this my friends was ridiculous….
The “Jersey Shore” kids didn’t fall off the pizza delivery truck yesterday — TMZ has learned they have rejected MTV’s salary offer for Season 2.
Sources connected with the negotiation say MTV offered Snooki, Pauly D, “The Situation” and the others each a $10,000 signing bonus and $5,000 an episode. We’re told the cast rejected the offer and made it clear — they were negotiating “Friends” style … everyone would get the same amount and it had to be a lot higher than MTV’s offer.
Sources say MTV came back and doubled the offer — $10,000 an episode. The cast hasn’t responded to the offer.
So let me get this straight. The cast is turning down what would be around $80,000 each for one month’s “work.” What does that “work” entail? Getting free food. Free room and board. Having your own security team walk around with you. Allowing you to get into bar fights without getting arrested (guarantee Ronnie’s arrest was bullshit). You get to go on boats, excursions for free, and work in T-Shirt store for less than 2 hours a day. Am I missing something? Oh yeah, you get slutty girls virtually planted in front of your face by MTV. You’re being PAID to cause trouble and get hammered every night.
Um, I’m pretty certain I’d do this for free. And if these people don’t agree to this new offer then they really are as stupid as we all think they are.
P.S. Sammy Sweetheart absolutely sucks.
