Jersey Shore is getting recast with cheaper drunk tarts after season five is shot

The good news is that Jersey Shore is going to get a whole new cast after the fifth season (The fourth is filming now.) The bad news is that half the cast already got spinoff shows, including one with Snooki and J-Woww trying to demonstrate basic life skills, Pauly D showing us his DJ pickup techniques, and The Situation lifting up his shirt and doing that lip curl thing that he thinks is irresistible to women. We’ll be rid of lesser players Ronnie, Sammie, Vinny and Deena at least.

Here’s the story from US:

Jersey Shore producers plan to recast the MTV hit. “After this group comes back from Italy and shoots season 5 this summer, that will be the end for them,” says an insider. The new stars will be “a lot cheaper”… plus the current gang can feel free to pursue spinoffs. Says the source, “They will leave on a high note!

[From US Weekly, print edition, July 4, 2011]

This comes right after the news that the current cast members were holding out for more than the $100,000 an episode they were already being paid for season four, which is filming now. Prior to signing contracts for season five they wanted even more cash, so if this report is correct MTV may have been fed up with it. They reportedly worked out something for season five, but seem to have called their bluff and decided to wipe the slate clean after that. Drunken famewhores are a dime a dozen and these kids are replaceable. Of course they got greedy and found out the hard way. Tough luck.

Snooki and J-Woww are shown cuddling a miniature daschund that stays in the little shop next to the pizza store where they’re working in Florence. Photos are from 6/17 and 6/18/11. Credit:

    That puppy is adorable!

  2. eny says:

    I want to puke, when I see Snooki.

  3. Snazzy says:

    I’m pretty sure the puppy wants to puke everytime it’s kissed by one of these two. That’s probably what he was on his way to do in the 3rd pic.

  4. the original bellaluna says:

    They’re going out “on a high note?” Yeah, right. Why would they, when none of them has EVER done ANYTHING on a high note?!

  5. Cherry Rose says:

    I feel sad that TV is basically these stupid reality shows. What ever happened to making an actual show, with actual actors who are actually talented?

    That being said, I’ve never seen an episode of Jersey Shore, but from the way they all behave, it shouldn’t be too hard to find people to replace them. All they do is party, get in fights, and have sex right? I think the majority of America’s population from ages 21-30 can do that.

    ‘Idiocracy’ is now. Reality TV is ass.

    I download 3 or 4 TV shows on the average week; otherwise, I don’t watch TV or go to movies because it’s a craptastic waste of time and makes my brain bleed. Weird that I DO enjoy the gossip on people I don’t even watch.

  7. Alice says:

    Considering spin-off shows usually bite the dust, I’m not worried.

  8. MeriJaan says:

    I didnt think it was possible to find ” cheaper, drunk tarts than the ones they already have.

  9. Dizzybenny says:

    I dont watch the show but they should have changed them after the 2nd season if they were asking for a big raise.There is enough drunken idiots out there…well we did lose one this week…but still there’s alot left that you could find at least 4-5.

  10. Elizabeth says:

    Sad because their leaving the show won’t put an end to the press coverage of similar minded drunken famewhores. It’s still not safe to turn on the TV!

    @ Alice – ITA with your take on spin-offs. They are gone soon (Matt Leblanc anyone?)

  11. original kate says:

    that first photo is just….words fail me. and i have an english degree.

  12. jover says:

    In the first pic snooki looks like one of donatella versace’s shorter disreputable relatives.

  13. Kimberly says:

    so over the JS cast . . .

  14. Jen says:

    I’m glad they are changing them up…they went from being nobodies to believing their own hype and acting like asses. Yes, I freely admit I have watched the show, but have lost a lot of interest since the last season was all about acting like man- and girl-whores and booze hounds. Only on Jersey Shore can you walk into a bar screaming like an idiot and people think it’s normal.

  15. lucy2 says:

    I wish they’d do my state of NJ a favor and shut the whole show down. Please!

    The sad part is that there actually are some really great shows out there, with talented people working on them, but so much attention (and ratings) goes to this garbage.

  16. Kiska says:

    I’m fine with no more Sammi and her juice head bf Ronnie. They are so annoying.
    But I do like Snooki, JWow and Pauly.

  17. Grandizer says:

    Don’t worry, knowing MTV, they will have spinoffs, like Malibu Shore in a season or two, then Corpus Cristi Shore and then they will have Battles between the casts at places like Mall of America or Barney’s Italian Bar or some such drivel…

    And the cast will start dating one another from different seasons and then the flat chested ones will get boob jobs and change boyfriends and so on and so on and so on…

    At some point they will then have secret dates with random people where their friends will whisper in their ears what sex act was performed without protection the previous evening.

    But one thing you can be sure of…

    It’s MTV so don’t look for there to be any Music Videos on…

  18. Michelle says:

    I think its about time they replaced them. they are so dumb. the show is completely pointless and people are already getting tired of them, especially of snooki. mtv wasting their money paying untalented people. what a waste.

  19. Tammy says:

    I watch the show and I enjoy it, but they do get on my nerves with getting greedy. They get paid good money now to go out and party and have sex every night so why get greedy and ask for more? Where were they before the show? NOWHERE!

  20. there are a lot of other similar type of people which would perfectly fit instead them in show …
