As we know, the Jersey Shore cast likes to screw anything that moves.
This week, though, they're putting the screws to MTV, refusing to renew their contracts and potentially holding up Season 4 'til they get more cash money.
Sources say the gang knows Jersey Shore Season 4 in Italy could be the last go-'round and wanna get paid now before the (really long) 15 minutes end.
BEST PAY UP: This could be a bad contract Situation, bro.
Showing surprising self-awareness, the stars realize the joyride that began in late '09 might be coming to an end and want to milk MTV while they still can.
Another disputed point, on top of salary per episode, is the the number of personal appearances, which can pay up to $40,000 a pop but which MTV restricts.
The network is adamant about limiting that kind of exposure from the cast, but the guidos and/or guidettes wanna jump on dat cash like grenades at Karma.
So far, only Ronnie Magro has signed. Could be a lonely trip to Italy for Ron-Ron if the rest don't get on board fast. Filming is supposed to start this month.
