'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.

The DJ with the stupid hair and the guy with the half a$$ ab's are already in their 30's! They are nothing more than self absorbed idiots acting like they're 21 again...give it a break!

There was one show where the idiot DJ was bragging how he banged some guy out, yeah, he banged him out alright, after the bouncer had the poor guy in a bear hug then he sucker punched him!

Hey, guys, anyone could do your job too, whatever you do! Let's just hire foreigners or illegals to do it for less! Are you an engineer, or work in an auto factory or repair computers? Let's find people to do your job for $8 an hour! People like you are a dime a dozen, right?

But let's pay the CEO millions and billions, because that's just the right thing to do!

Some of you people need to grow up. People leave the third world for America to get away from wealthy elites that keep everything for themselves and their buddies.

Who cares what little bit of money they are making? You seem to be under the dilusion that they have talent. They are people they picked off the streets to go on a show and act like idiots just like they did for the real world. They should of changed the cast every season just like they did for that. These people are showing up at awards shows like they deserve to be there. They are not celebrities they are freaking idiots who should be embarrased to even exist. Shut the freaking show down already. They think they are special so replace them then. There are plenty of other idiots just like them all along the east coast.

I'm pretty sure that they can be replaced. There's plenty more people out there just like them willing to step in to make that money. If they know what's best for them they will all show up to work tomorrow.

MTV needs to do the world a favor and cancel this ridiculous reality BS show. This cast is no one special to think they deserve loads of $$$$.

A lot of the Hollywood actors and actresses you see are talentless, but they are established in the business because their parents were directors or actors and set them up. Whereas you have to go to auditions and get picked apart, ugly, untalented actresses like Maggie Gyllenhaal and Gwyneth Paltrow can just get set up in roles. Many successful business owners got set up in their current enterprises in the beginning through their rich parents. You would be surprised at how many no-talent idiots that you think are geniuses own businesses and are "rich and successful".

Why do people not want the Jersey Shore cast to get a fair sum of money? You watched the show. What's the saying, you are trying to get milk for free without buying the cow? Pay up!

Let them go and earn more doing something else! I'm sick of seeing them. If I see one more photo of that one guy lifting his shirt up everytime there is a camera, I might get sick. Yucky.
