'Jersey Shore' Cast NOT Demanding Higher Salary for Season 5
MTV has recently given a greenlight to "Jersey Shore" season 5, but TMZ reports that the cast are negotiating to get higher salaries. Words are, they refuse to take part in the new season before signing new contracts which mention a pay raise.
However, sources close to the cast tell The Hollywood Reporter that "they haven't heard anything about negotiations for a higher salary." Moreover, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's manager Matt Cohen says, "We're ready to go for season 5. And we're happy with the contracts we have."
Another source affirms she has not heard any further negotiations either and doubts that Snooki and her friends can get higher salaries than what they earn now. Cohen confirms that the stars are currently being paid six figures per episode.
Meanwhile, MTV refuses to release a statement on report of the higher salary demand as its rep says, "We don't comment on talent contracts."
"Jersey Shore" cast, who have filmed season 4 in Italy, are heading back to Seaside Heights to film the fifth season. The fourth season will premiere on Thursday, August 4, at 10 P.M. ET/PT.
