Move over, Sarah Palin ... the folks at "Buckwild" are coming back to MTV for season 2 and TMZ has learned they are shooting in the former Alaska governor's backyard.
As TMZ first reported, "Buckwild" was cancelled by MTV last year after the death of one of the cast members, Shain Gandee. Producers of the show maintained at the time they were going forward with season two.
Now sources tell TMZ the show has been shooting for about a month now in Wasilla, Alaska with a whole new cast. Our sources say the concept is the same as before -- lots of hooking up and fights -- but with some insane new stunts.
We're told they've already shot the cast skinny dipping in freezing cold water during an ice fishing trip ... and a crazy snowmobile ride through the mountains, with people being pulled on inner tubes. Our sources say the stunts being shot now may or may not make the final edit.
MTV had no comment.

'Real World' Star
Incubus Singer Is Threatening to Kill Me
'Every Day, I Am Terrified'
3/30/2014 12:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Incubus singer Brandon Boyd has been ruthlessly stalking a former "Real World" star -- even threatening to kill her -- so says the former "Real World" star ... but Brandon says B.S.
Svetlana Shusterman from "Real World 17: Key West" got a temporary restraining order against Boyd, claiming Brandon's been stalking her for years ... and recently began threatening her life.
Svetlana filed a police report claiming Brandon had followed her car onto a freeway and yelled through the window that he was going to kill her.
Svetlana says she recently moved to a friends house to evade him, but he tracked her down. She writes, "Every day, I am terrified."
Boyd has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from her pending a court hearing next month.
Brandon says it's all news to him. A rep for the singer tells TMZ, "Brandon has been advised about this but doesn’t know anything about it. He doesn’t know this person nor does he recall ever having met her."
I Don't Need Jay Cutler Looking At My Crotch During Birth
3/20/2014 12:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It's the question millions of couples ask themselves before entering the delivery room -- and now Jay Cutler's in the same boat -- does your wife want you to see EVERYTHING when she's giving birth?
Fortunately for the Chicago Bears QB -- he won't have to guess ... 'cause his wife Kristin Cavallari was out in NYC today and told us.
One TMZ staffer who's wife recently had a kid has some advice for Jay -- "Don't look down. Maintain eye contact ... and watch where you step."
Under Investigation for 'Deadly Conduct'
3/19/2014 12:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Steve-O's latest stunt -- backflipping from a bridge into the shallow, San Antonio River -- could land him in jail for the crime of "Deadly Conduct."
Steve made the jump last Friday ... a very risky proposition given the water below is only 4' deep.
Cops threatened to cite him but didn't ... however, law enforcement sources now tell us the "Jackass" star is under criminal investigation.
So, you ask, what is the crime of "Deadly Conduct." Under Texas law, someone who engages in reckless conduct that could place someone else in danger of great bodily injury, then it's considered deadly conduct ... a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail.
We're told Steve-O may also be cited for swimming in the San Antonio River -- which is prohibited.
Oh I'm Sorry ...
I Didn't See Any 'No Backflip' Signs On This Bridge
3/18/2014 10:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Steve-O insists police should be THANKING him for doing a high-flying backflip off a San Antonio bridge this weekend -- into four feet of water -- telling TMZ, thanks to him, the entire city now knows ... that bridge should really have "no diving" signs on it.
San Antonio police are currently investigating the incident -- a rep for the SAPD tells us, they're trying to determine how Steve-O should be punished ... because backflipping off that bridge isn't just illegal, it's extremely dangerous.
But Steve-O says that's BS -- telling us, it's dangerous because the city never posted signs on the bridge, warning people that the water below is only 4 feet deep.
He adds, "They've given no indication that people shouldn't jump, and done nothing to warn anyone about the serious dangers of that shallow water. Very irresponsible, indeed."
Steve-O says his video -- shot for his new YouTube channel -- has raised awareness about the dangers of San Antonio bridge jumping ... and he should be rewarded.

'Love & Hip Hop'
Show Idea Was STOLEN
3/11/2014 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The cat fights are now spilling into court -- a pair of female producers are suing the people behind "Love & Hip Hop" ... claiming the reality show was their idea first ... and VH1 stole it.
Trisha Lum and Nickie Lum-Davis filed the suit against VH1 and MTV -- claiming they pitched the idea back in 2009 ... and thought they had a deal to make their show, called "Hip Hop Wives."
According to the lawsuit ... the show was supposed to star current and former flames of DMX, Swizz Beatz, Irv Gotti and Jim Jones ... but VH1 honchos cooled on the idea ... saying they didn't want a show that would compete with its other reality series, "Basketball Wives."
The Lums are calling BS ... saying VH1 moguls used "Hip Hop Wives" as the template for "Love and Hip Hop" ... down to the last detail.
Trisha and Nickie want justice ... in the form of money. Their lawyer tells us they're gunning for an 8-figure judgment.
VH1 had no comment.
Andre Drummond Got PLAYED
By That 'Ratchet Ho' From 'iCarly!'
3/5/2014 3:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"iCarly" star Jennette McCurdy is nothin' but a "ratchet ho" who played NBA star Andre Drummond like a fiddle to boost her own celebrity status ... so says MTV star Charlamagne tha God.
Charlamagne -- who stars on "Guy Code" and "Charlamagne & Friends" -- tells TMZ Sports ... the "ratchet ho" proof is in the fact that she publicly engaged Andre on Twitter after he named her as his "Woman Crush Wednesday."
"She’s clearly a ratchet ho ... social sexual networking hookups are for regular people not celebrities."Charlamagne also says he believes Drummond when the NBA star sad he didn't leak racy pics of Jennette to the internet -- even after she trashed him and humiliated him on a podcast this weekend.
"I bet ten other guys have the same pics Andre has," Charlamagne says ... "She’s an idiot."
For all you non-urban linguists out there -- Urban Dictionary defines "Ratchet Ho" as, "A female lacking class and integrity. Pertaining to women with weak moral foundations that generally are characterized by their general antagonism towards people; slut; degenerate."
And now you know.
I'm a Bona Fide Rock Chick Now
Performs in Vegas (Sort of)
3/3/2014 6:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
One thing is undeniable ... Audrina Patridge is pretty ... out of tune when it comes to singing -- but that didn't stop her from rocking a legendary stage in Las Vegas this weekend.
The former "Hills" star went to Rock n' Roll Fantasy Camp at the House of Blues in Vegas and got to perform an original song with actual rockstar, Lita Ford.
It's unclear how many days Audrina spent at the camp -- but she obviously spent more time on her rocker chick moves (decent) than anything else.
Hey, at least she's living her dreams. Off key, but still ...
For the record, AP ... here's how it's done. Classic Lita.
