First we learned that the cast of Jersey Shore were banding together Friends style to try and force MTV to pay them more money per episode to return for season 2 of their show and then we learned that MTV decided that they were not interested in the cast’s salary demands and are willing to pay them each $10,000 per episode and not a penny more. Today we learn that two members of the Jersey Shore cast, Jenni Jwoww Farley and Ronnie Magro, have decided to take MTV‘s offer and will return for season 2 … the rest of the cast are still holding out for more money:
Two of the cast members of “Jersey Shore” have agreed to MTV’s offer of $10,000 an episode, but the others are still holding out … sources connected to the negotiations tell TMZ. Ronnie and J-WOWW have accepted MTV’s offer. A well-placed MTV source tells TMZ the network is drawing a hard line at the close of business tomorrow — the rest of the cast members must either accept the offer or MTV replaces them. Earlier in the week we told you MTV’s original deadline was Monday night — but the network continued negotiations and now they say it’s do or die.
I had a feeling that these jokers wouldn’t band together as a single unit when push came to shove. I suspect that now that Jwoww and Ronnie have caved to MTV‘s final offer other castmembers will take the deal as well. In the end, they have no choice. If they refuse, they will be cast aside and forgotten … just like original castmember Angelina Jolie Pivarnick. Her dumb ass walked off the show after 2 eps and is prolly kicking herself for being so stupid. I bet she’d return for season 2 for free if MTV will have her. Altho I think other castmembers will take the deal I wouldn’t at all be surprised if at least one of these egotistical morons turned down the deal in the hopes of getting more money from someone else. It remains to be seen what Jersey Shore: Season 2 will look like cast-wise but it sounds like MTV is finished playing around. We should know very soon who is in … and who may be out.
