‘Jersey Shore’ is getting recast?

Jersey Shore

So you know how the cast of Jersey Shore has been pressuring MTV for more and more money despite the fact that they’re all useless, no-talent dumb-dumbs? Well, it looks like the cable network is about to take its ball and go home, because reports are going around saying that the current cast is getting das boot so that they can fill the show up with newer, cheaper, equally talentless models.

With the self-described guidos, former anonymous partiers from the northeast, now making at least $100,000 per episode after protracted negotiations, MTV wants to go cheaper, Us Magazine reports. That would mean, following next season, the show’s fifth, it will be goodbye to Snooki, The Situation, Pauly D and the rest of the gang. Don’t worry about them, though (if, indeed you were for some reason): MTV plans on cashing in on those stars in other ways. The Situation just signed a development deal with the network, while Pauly D has his own show, as do Snooki and JWoww. SOURCE

What I’m getting out of this is that MTV finally sat down and said “Hmmmm … so you’re telling me that we can get a bunch of neanderthals and sluts who want to be paid to drink and fuck who are equally useless and relevant as our current cast, and we can get them for CHEAPER? GASP! Quick, someone throw bags of cash at eight stupid whores!”

UPDATE: “We love the present cast, and their summer adventures have just begun,” a spokesperson for the network told Access Hollywood on Friday. “We currently have no plans to recast the show.” SOURCE
