The Jersey Shore salary controversy seems to have dissipated as quickly as it arose in the first place, with new reports saying the whole cast has re-signed.

A rep for the network confirmed Tuesday that all principal castmates have inked new contracts to shoot the show’s third season, save for Angelina Pivarnick.

Who? Oh, right, the quote-unquote Kim Kardashian of Staten Island who bailed after one episode last season, then came back, then evidently flaked again.

Oh well. Guess she couldn’t hang with the wild times of Snooki, J-Woww, The Situation and friends, who will now bank an impressive $30,000 per episode.


That’s up from $5,000 per episode in Season One.

FIST-PUMP: They’re back in business, baby!

“MTV is pleased that the Jersey Shore cast will be returning to Seaside Heights to continue production on Season Three,” the network said in a statement.

“Not only have they become a part of the MTV family, but fans worldwide have fallen in love with them. Stay tuned for Jersey Shore Season 2 on July 29.”

MTV had quite the situation on its hands, as Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Co. demanded a giant raise before allowing cameras to follow their awesome lives.

The Situation was the first to re-sign. The rest followed.

All water under the polluted bridge now. Let the Jersey Shore quotes, club-hopping, fist-pumping, hair-oiling, fake-tanning and boardwalk brawling begin.
