'Jersey Shore'

Cast Goes on Strike

7/18/2010 4:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The cast of "Jersey Shore" is so dissatisfied over their contract situation that they refused to shoot scenes for the upcoming third season until they get a better deal ... this according to sources connected with the show.

The cast was supposed to begin shooting "at home" scenes today for season three, but we're told Jwoww, Ronnie, Sammi, Pauly D and Vinny -- who are spread out between New York and Rhode Island -- told the crews they weren't shooting without new contracts.

The Situation and Snooki are supposed to shoot tomorrow, and we're told Snooki plans to do the same. No word yet on The Situation, but as we first reported ... he's having contract issues of his own.

Sources close to the show tell TMZ the cast feels they can make more money doing appearances for two months, rather than filming the show.

A rep for MTV had no comment.

I still don't see what the big deal is about their show. It's just another dirty show. I have seen blogs about Snooki and I can't for the life of me understand what the fuss is. She isn't pretty at all, in fact, she always looks like she needs a bath. She always looks dirty. Sounds like they have all gotten too big for their britches and I say cancel the show. It wasn't much to begine with.

Of course they should get more money. We all know how immensely talented this "cast" is LOL. Methinks they've let a little bit of fame seep in to their oleaginous heads. Now they're convinced that they're the real deal, so they're attempting to strong-arm their way to a more favorable contract.

I hope they fall flat on their faces! I can't stand Pauly D, and "The Situation." Both of those guys are uglier than mud fences, and should be utterly grateful for any fame or adoration they may experience. Yuck!

If MTV had a CLUE - they'd cancel the show ASAP - these people are disgusting - and I've never seen one episode - only all the other crap shown about them. I think anyone who DID watch the show is OVER IT.
