'Party Down South' Cast

CMT Plays Hardball ...

You Wanna Walk, There's The Door

The hard-drinking, hard-partying rednecks of "Party Down South" are a dime a dozen as far as CMT is concerned ... because the network is prepared to cut some of 'em loose if they can't agree on new contracts.

TMZ broke the story ... cast members are holding out for raises before Season 2 starts shooting. Right now they're only pulling down $500 per episode.

Sources close to the show tell us CMT had a conference call last Friday with the cast and their newly hired managers -- and one of the stars, Mattie Breaux, went off ... bitching about salaries, and a plan to shoot seasons 2 and 3 back-to-back.

We're told Mattie eventually hung up, but producers were unfazed -- and are now saying if Mattie wants to quit ... they won't stop her. 

We've also learned the cast will get $1000 each to shoot a reunion episode next week ... and they're hoping the new contracts are signed by then.

Now, here's why we're all pulling for Tiffany to get a rise raise ...

This is a TV show? We're sinking faster than the a Titanic.

Aren't the producers the same jerks who did the Jersey Shore? They're rolling in cash and still want to exploit these Einsteins?

I think there's enough WTF to go around.

Really? This bunch of wannabes should be grateful they even got a gig! If you add up all of their IQs, they wouldn't amount to much more than any of these bimbo's bra size!

Hey CMT,


Tell you what. Let them go, Then put your collective heads together and come up with something other than these LAME reality shows that create nothing more than narcissistic wannabe yahoos who bring absolutely nothing to the table .

Why should they get more money? Who even watches that dumb ass show? Just another show about worthless Rednecks that shouldnt even of made the discussion of the show. Anytime you have a show where they talk English, but need subtitles at the bottom should let you know its trash. It shoulda been called "How Redneck are you? " Oh well, get that money, im sure they all need it to get there teeth fixed. Good Luck

They may be worth more than $500 per episode but.. not much more. Maybe $550, tops. Any fool can get drunk and act dumb for free.
