'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.

They look like the white trash version of The Hills. Fake hair, fake boobs, fake tans, and it looks like they got their clothes out of the $1 bin at Goodwill. The level of intelligence is about 8th grade or so. And they actually get paid for this?

ATTENTIO MTV, PLEASE get rid of this bunch of losers. While you are getting rid of these losers get rid of the morons that keep telling you what unreality shows need to be done next(Ktown? what a bunch of racists you are). Please go back to music and leave rehearsed reality to the other 20 channels that are doing it better. Teenagers have not experienced enough life to do anything real and these shows are setting a bad example to REAL teenagers around the world with their stupid antics and irresponsibility. IF you are going to continue with these stupid shows at least stop bailing the morons out when they do violate the law, let young people know that there are consequences for their actions.

$10K an episode is a lot better than what they were getting before, but it's still not good enough. This show earns millions. $500K a season, more for the better stars sounds reasonable.

Why are people so hostile against average people trying to make a living? Why are you cheering on multibillion dollar enterprises who won't even blink if some of their millions or billions disappeared? You're supporting people that have nothing to lose, over people just trying to live a better life. Americans have been brainwashed, and it's disgusting.

Their 15 minutes is almost up anyway. I say let them go on strike, indefinitely.

Who didn't see this coming. From the get go these morons thought they were so special and all they really are is annoying and ungrateful. Replace them if you really must continue with this show. The Jersey Shore has plenty more of these types to pick from. Personally, I don't care to watch a bunch of rude, conceited, slutty, drunk dumb asses embarrass themselves on TV, but apparently they have enough viewers to continue the series.
