'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 FOR THEM!

ME? I'm holding out on ever watching MTV again until they stop showing all this white trash reality TV drivel and get back to actually covering the music scene, and showing music videos.

You know, the kind of programming you would expect a channel called MTV to show. When are they going to give up this farce of still being MTV and change their name to Reality TV / RTV.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

And they'll get it. This season, which will probably have another in NJ this summer, will most likely be their last & they know it. Just like anyone with 15 minutes to go would, they are cashing in. Most of them have no desire to spend another month cooped up with each other, & they probably will only get a smattering of other offers before it dies off. So JUST LIKE THE REST OF US WOULD, they're getting while the getting's good. It doesn;t matter how much we hate them; they couldn't care less. The money they make is more than any of us have.

There must be gold in acting like a spoiled brat. For an appearance before students at Rutgers University(in NJ, natch), "Snooki" is getting paid $32K. That's $2K more than the legendary African-American authoress, Toni Morrison, will receive for delivering the commencement address at graduation there. Something's wrong! (Of course, when you consider Snooki's behavior patterns...her father admitted in a newspaper interview that when she visited his place of business, instead of politely asking to see her father, she walked into the lobby and yelled out, "Daddy! Daddy! Daddy!" Hmph!)

Please DO NOT send these people to Italy. They are an embarassment to our Country. It's no wonder most Europeans find Americans distasteful. They will not appreciate the "irony" or find their antics amusing.

Who in the world watches this stable full of no-talent idgits? The only good thing they might have done is set tanning back about a hundred years! Surely the network can find something better. Dead air would be an improvement!
