'Jersey Shore' Cast -- All for One, One for All

1/31/2010 1:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jersey ShoreThe "Jersey Shore" cast will all be paid the same for season 2 of the MTV show, sources connected with the negotiations tell TMZ.

We're told it was important the producers wanted to avoid infighting among the cast ... at least on the subject of money -- so Pauly D, The Situation, Snooki and the gang will all be paid exactly the same.

As we first reported, the cast negotiated their deals like the cast of "Friends" -- either they all got paid the same ... or nobody got paid.

We already posted that Vinnie took the $10,000 per episode offer, so we're assuming the price was right for the rest of the cast as well.

A rep for MTV had no comment.

I am not offended by this show and I am half italian. What I am a little bit offended by is that these no talent dime a dozen wannabe's are calling themselves celebrities. That term is so loosely used these days. I dont think they even rank at D list celeb's. They are like Paris Hilton. Known for doing nothing and not even that good looking in the first place. Yah, it's kinda entertaining to watch but only cause they are such arrogant bastards and I want to see them get burned. In a few years we wont even remember them. Anyone who pays these people 10,000 for an apperance is a dumba**. MTV will make a lot of money off them but these clubs and sh*t? I guess the market for "celebs" at these places is pretty desperate to hire these people. lol. They are funny to make fun of though.

just another bunch of loopy nut jobs from upstate New York, pretending to be from Jersey. Check out the Chelsea Lately show they did...every single one admitted to being from NY. Just another bowl of f***, as my REAL Jersey buddy would say. Losers.

Since when does REALITY TV pay? I thought only scripted sitcoms paid money to the actors who were in the show. So does this mean Jersey Shore is scripted and isn't reality? I'm just sayin...

They paid the cast less than other "reality shows" because they know they need the $$$ to bail them out of jail and pay off the owners of businesses that the cast trashes!

And people think Leno is a waste of air time.....

These salary increases will make the show become even more scripted by producers, and the reality aspect of the show will suffer as well as it's ratings.

You morons keep on talking about them being from NJ. Three of them are from the greaseball breeding pit that is Staten Island. Take a visit to the Staten Island mall to see the orange skinned italian in its natural habitat. Two of them come from white bread upstate New York. One is from even whiter Road Island. Only one comes from a working class part of the country The Bronx. Sammi is from NJ. Granted NJ does suck however these retards are not what you will find if you visit the towns and suburbs of NJ.

2nd seasons don't work. They all know the deal and now will all be plugging garbage of their own and trying to do things and not spontanious. Spooki will be fatter and uglier along with the other meatballs. The only good thing would be to see them take a beating instead of punchin out drunks. They are targets now. Tanning, weight lifting, snipping eyebrows and drinking and that's he guys!. Sounds more like fire island!
