Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is definitely not one to shy away from drama. The pint-sized Jersey Shore cast member was arrested in the middle of the day on Friday for disorderly conduct while MTV crews got it all on camera.
Looks like the fame has gone to the Jersey Shore cast's fake tanned heads. Shooting for season 3 of MTV's highly popular reality show turned pop culture phenomenon has come to an abrupt halt. Ronnie, Sammi, Pauly D and Vinny have all refused to film for season 3 until they receive new contracts and bigger paychecks – they reportedly earn $10,000 each per episode.
Much like dogs, television shows and stations have an accelerated life span compared to humans. Over the past few years, 80s baby MTV has gotten a little past its prime, like a man in his forties who tries way too hard to be hip, or should I say dope, to impress his children.
Jersey Shore star Snooki tweeted updates after she and castmate Vinny were evacuated along with fellow partygoers when ice broke through the glass ceiling of the Sony Building in Manhattan where they were attending a Purim event on Sunday.
You could buy a lot of hair gel with that kind of dough! After an opening season filled with blood, brawls and booze, the cast of MTV's The Jersey Shore will be coming back for more – after receiving a hefty raise from $200 per episode to $10,000.
New York Post critic Linda Stasi recently accused MTV’s new show, Jersey Shore, of furthering the notion that “Italian-Americans are…ignoramuses with fake tans, no manners…and no ambition beyond expanding steroid- and silicone-advanced bodies.
