Well, I guess they promised drama and excitement, but I don’t think they meant this: TV Guide reports that MTV has settled their salary dispute with the cast of Jersey Shore, and are able to complete season three (keep in mind that Season 2 barely premieres at the end of this month.) Production was halted by the cast, who refused to participate in filming unless they received more money. They initially asked for $30,000 per episode for ten episodes.
“MTV is pleased that the Jersey Shore cast are returning to Seaside Heights to continue production on Season 3,” an MTV spokeswoman said. “Not only have they become a part of the MTV family, but fans worldwide have fallen in love with them.”
Well, love may not be the correct term. Fascinated maybe, but love? I just don’t think it was right to have asked for more money(I wonder if Angelina got a raise too). After all, if it wasn’t for MTV, they wouldn’t be the household names that they have become. But obviously MTV doesn’t agree.
What do you think? Are they worth the money?
