The cast of MTV’s hit reality series Jersey Shore, including such memorable characters as The Situation, pictured, and Snooki, won’t accept the few hundred dollars each per episode they been receiving as compensation for season 2 of America’s guiltiest pleasure. They’re asking for $10,000 an episode, according to the New York Post, arguing that the cast from The Hills gets $100,000 per episode despite having lower ratings. The previously unknown Jersey residents have been enjoying their newfound fame, some more so than others. Snooki has been invited to the Grammys and the rest of the cast makes up to $10,000 in guest appearances at clubs. Currently, the cast plans to stay together in their negotiation – more money for all or they’re all walking off the set. Now, that‘s a Situation! –KADEEN GRIFFITHS
