‘Jersey Shore’ Cast — Squeezing MTV For More $$$

Filed under: Snooki, Pauly D, The Situation, Jersey Shore, Celebrity Justice

The “Jersey Shore” cast has put the screws to MTV for a FIFTH TIME — negotiating new contracts for an upcoming season back in New Jersey … and we’re told, they locked down their biggest salaries yet.

Plans are already in motion for a fifth season back in Seaside Heights — but sources connected with the “Jersey” cast tell TMZ, Pauly D and the gang refused to take part without signing new contracts first.

We’re told MTV originally planned to shoot the new season under the terms of the Season 4 contracts — but lawyers for the cast refused … so MTV drew up new papers.

We’re told the majority of the cast has already re-signed for a bump in salary — not a HUGE raise, but still significant — and the rest will sign this week.

The cast is scheduled to fly back from Italy on the 23rd — and start shooting the new season in Jersey on the 26th. 495 Productions has not returned calls, and MTV had no comment.
