The Jersey Shore cast is so upset with its contracts that most or all of the guidos may refuse to fist-pump for a third season until they get paid more by MTV.

They were supposed to begin shooting "at home" scenes today for season three, but J-Woww, Ronnie, Sammi, Pauly D and Vinny apparently said no way.

The status of The Situation and Snooki is unclear. The bottom line is that the cast feels it can make more money doing appearances than filming the show.

The gang feels that its current deal, for $10K/episode, was only supposed to cover Season 2 of Jersey Shore only, and wants to renegotiate for Season 3.

How does MTV feel about all this?

Jersey Shore Cast on the Beach

Live together, die alone ... or something.

Signals are conflicting. The producers of Jersey Shore think "the show is not about famous rich people with managers" at the shore and may cut the cord.

495 Productions would like to keep a few cast members - The Situation, Snooki and Pauly D - but they think that the strike by the cast is the last straw.

Other reports suggest that in fact, The Situation is being tempted with a new contract that would pay him more than other stars - who are now pissed.

The network brass is toying with replacing all or some of the original cast members with new blood, although this idea has its share of detractors, too.

The problem for the network? Sources say MTV thinks they have "magic in a bottle" with this particular group and wants to keep the cast wholly intact.

Would you watch Jersey Shore with a new cast?

Get ready to beat up the beat.

Snooki and J-Woww, a.k.a. Nicole Polizzi and Jenni Farley, a.k.a. the really short, orange girl and the behemoth with the enormous fake boobs from Jersey Shore, posed for the cameras at the Jersey Shore Soundtrack Album Release Party this week.

That's gonna be an awesome soundtrack, for sure ... this gang requires the right kind of tunes to go absolutely wild on the boardwalk. Which they will do again, beginning July 29 on MTV (follow the link to peep the Jersey Shore Season 2 trailer).

The real question, of course, is ...

Snooki and Jenni

Who would you rather ...

If you've seen him on TV, you know he's not exactly dying to be exclusive with anyone. But that doesn't mean Mike Sorrentino isn’t looking around for love.

But what exactly is The Situation looking for?

Jersey Shore Homies

“I’m a Cancer and I’m Italian,” he said at the launch of NoX Edge, the workout steroid supplement. “I like to take care of people and do nice things. It doesn’t matter if her hair is blonde or brown, but she must be giving and generous, like myself.”

“Looks are big,” Mike concedes, while evaluating any romantic options.

Maybe for long-term prospects, anyway. Dude hooked up with Snooki.

Can you resist a piece of this? Think about it, this display was during a red carpet appearance ... it's as clothed as you'll ever see him. Talk about a Situation!

Sorrentino notes that the ideal woman goes deeper than the surface elements of romance, although she does have to work well with him and his lifestyle.

“I’m the type of person that’s open, whatever happens, happens,” The Situation says. “Ultimately, she’s just got to work well with the way I live my life."

"I need a girl who knows a relationship is 50-50.”

But he cautions that if certain boundaries are overstepped, he's outta here: “If she’s bossy, controlling or high maintenance, those are dealbreakers for me.”

The Situation. J-Woww. Ronnie. Pauly D. Snooki. Sammi. Vinny. That random chick who bailed in the first episode last season but apparently is back now.

The Jersey Shore cast, in all its fake-tanned, steroid-bound glory, returns in its entirety for an all-new season of debauchery on MTV beginning July 29.

A good thing, too - they definitely don't get enough publicity as it is.

We can only imagine what the final tallies for shots taken, police reports filed and bodies cold-cocked on the boardwalk will be in Season 2, starting in Miami.

If there's a city hot enough to handle this collection of hotheads, it's the South Florida paradise, to which the gang road trips to kick off the season.

Then it's back to the northeast once the weather warms up, much to the chagrin of the Garden State, which probably wishes it could revoke visas or something.

Without further ado, here's the Jersey Shore Season 2 trailer. Or as we like to call it, with a nod to Star Wars, Jersey Shore Episode II: Return of the Guidos ...

Earlier this year, we told you Jersey Shore was looking for a new crop of fake-tanned faces to integrate with or flat-out replace its familiar, fake-tanned ones.

Now it looks like a four and four scenario: Four stay, four go. Then Ronnie hops in a 4x4 and raises all sorts of hell when he realizes he's just gotten a pink slip.

That's the rumor. MTV sources say this season's footage of Ronnie Magro, Sammi Giancola, Vinny Guadagnino and Angelina Pivarnick has been "underwhelming."

At least according to the network brass. As for replacing them for Season 3, one source said, "They should be very worried." No fist-pumping for you, Ron-Ron.

As for The Situation, Snooki, Pauly D and JWoww, they're reportedly sold for next season, and may be melded with a fresh group of guidos/ettes at that time.

This in spite of The Situation's diva-like antics. Guy brings in viewers!

If you thought his attempt at rap was difficult to stomach, sources on the set of Jersey Shore say The Situation's diva-like antics are making him a pain to deal with.

The Sitch (Mike Sorrentino) has become an egomaniac convinced he knows more about making a hit show than the producers or MTV - and he's calling the shots.

As one source summed up the matter of the Staten Island gym manager, "It's gotten ridiculous. If we tell [Mike] not to cross the street, he will. He just defies us."

Moreover, the producers are trying to keep the cast real, despite the guys and girls being quasi-celebrities at this point, and that task is hardest with The Situation.

Angelina and The Situation

Jersey Shore's The Situation with Angelina (the random girl who left).

They don't want the Jersey Shore cast members making deals on the phone, bragging to others about their fame or their wallet, etc. - and he's out of control.

As a result, a lot of what's shot is unusable, because it doesn't even resemble a reality show - and that's not even what's getting to the MTV producers most.

Once a week, the cast is given time to deal with personal business deals off camera. Mike is on the phone all the time, 'cause he thinks peeps wanna see this.

You could say it's become a bit of a frustrating ... Situation.

Sammi Giancola, a.k.a. Sweetheart, said in one of the earliest Jersey Shore quotes that she is the sweetest b!tch you will ever meet. We beg to differ.

Popping some chick twice in the face at a Miami nightclub doesn't exactly seem like a "Sweetheart" move to us, but maybe it was done out of love?

The incident supposedly happened last month, and according to law enforcement officials, Sammi is in the clear - but only because she left town just in time.

The Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office says the case of Giancola's flying fists of alcohol-fueled fury is closed because, well, there's no one to arrest.

Sammi 'Sweetheart'

NO SWEETHEART: Sammi is at the center of the latest Jersey Shore fight.

"As a matter of policy, we do not file charges involving misdemeanor crimes when the accused is beyond [our] jurisdiction," an office spokesman said.

However, if Giancola ever shows her face in Miami again? According to the State Attorney, "This case could be revisited if and when the accused returns."

Scratch Miami off the list of cities in consideration for Season 3 then.

Last season, Sammi's hothead BF Ronnie Magro became notorious for fights on the show. Seriously, the dude would throw down at a moment's notice.

A couple of absolute tools continue to seek some form of justice.

We were just thinking that The Situation from Jersey Shore needed to embark on a rap career and release a song called "The Situation" when lo and behold!

The hot track hits iTunes next week. The Sitch knows a thing or two about wife-beaters, but his beats? Would you call them ill - or will they simply make you ill?

A collaboration with Fatman Scoop, DJ Class, The Disco Fries, the song may be one of the worst attempts at music in history even after all the sound effects.

But who are we to judge? Take a listen and vote for yourself:

What do you think of The Situation's attempt at rap?

The Situation says his perfect girl could be “anyone.” When it comes to selecting a future wife (or trash bag for a typical Friday), he's an equal-opportunity guy.

DJ Pauly D (Paul Delvecchio) is little more selective than his buddy, however.

“She’s gotta take care of herself,” Delvecchio said Sunday before deejaying at Las Vegas’s Palms Casino Resort. “She’s gotta be, like, drop-dead gorgeous."

Well, yeah. But does recent, likely hookup Paris Hilton match that description?

"She’s gotta stand out in a crowd. She’s gotta take care of herself like I do.”

By "take care of herself," Pauly D presumably means provide for herself, but his perfect woman would adhere to the same GTL motto (gym, tan, laundry) as he does.

“A confident girl for Pauly D is what I need,” he says. “She’s gotta be beautiful.”

We're sensing some consistent themes here on Pauly D's list of criteria.

The second season of Jersey Shore began in Miami this spring. Pauly, Ronnie and The Situation shirtless are now back in the Garden State. The premiere is July 29.

What can viewers expect? “So much more everything,” Delvecchio says.

“More drama, fights, hookups, more everything. It was insane. I had the time of my life. I love Miami. We just killed it out there. You gotta be outside. The pool parties. The beach. The music. Nice tan. Good-looking people. That’s the ideal summer.”

Lots of girls want to get with The Situation.

Why that is, we can't exactly say. But it's true. This one, however, wants to get with him ... and Ronnie, and Snooki, and Sammi, etc. No, not in that kind of way.

Margaret Skourlis, the current Miss New Jersey USA, wants to become a new roommate for Season 3 of Jersey Shore, for which producers are auditioning peeps.

She auditioned for the show last week, despite being Greek-American, not Italian (huge faux pas) and says she can handle The Situation shirtless. Easily, too.

Why? She's survived beauty pageants. You think a half dozen hotheads intimidate her? "We're not as evil to each other but we're just as snippy in other ways."

Margaret's best selling point? She says pageants and Jersey Shore both "excenturate things." No idea what that means, but she needs to be cast on JS ... now.

Margaret Skourlis

Um, yeah. J-Woww and Snook would eat Mags alive.
