'Jersey' Cast

Holding Out for

MORE MONEY

4/1/2011 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Several "Jersey Shore" cast members are putting the screws to MTV -- refusing to renew their contracts until they get more money -- and we're told, it's all because this upcoming season could be their last.

Sources close to the cast tell TMZ, the "Jersey" stars in question realize the joyride might be coming to an end -- and they want to milk MTV ... while they still can.

Another disputed point -- the number of personal appearances, which can pay up to $40,000 a pop. MTV is adamant about limiting that kind of exposure, but the guidos and/or guidettes in question wanna get that cheese.

So far, we're told only Ronnie has signed -- and while the rest plan to follow suit (duh) ... they better do it fast. Season 4 is scheduled to start shooting in Italy within the next few weeks.

Calls to MTV weren't returned.

GOOD. Kill this show already. They'll all be waiting in line to fill out applications at McDonald's by the end of the month.

You mean they've realized they're a bunch of no talent losers and their 15 mins is almost up so they better milk it for all its worth.

This is a good time to be Snooki or The Situation and a really bad time to be Vinny or Deena.

Good for them. If you're on a reality show you may as well get as much bank as you can whilst you can.

If they don't sign... you can find some guy out there with abs and biceps (not like nobody has them).... it's not like they have lines to memorize. Maybe the Sitch can do more celebrity roasts? Next time he be the waiter filling the water glasses.

Say.. do you think they're cognizant of how *bad* they have it? I mean, after this little stint, they're done for. That's it. Nothing left in life for them, except praying for the sweet release of death.

They're already past their prime (if you can say they had a prime) - they have no skills to fall back on. So.. what's left? I'm sure none of them will have invested their money wisely.

I'm guessing a gig at the Bunny Ranch...

What a nasty bunch of asses! Who the heck is their audience? Kids? Kids - heck, nobody - should be influenced by these trolls. No morals on MTV. A horrid, horrid conglomerate.

I hope that's an April Fool's joke. ALl they do for their "show" is spend all night hitting bars, come home, sit in hot tub, screw cheap ho's they picked up at the bars, kickt hem out the next morning, then argue all day.


It really is the most IQ-lowering pointless TV show ever made.
