Because a few of the Jersey Shore cast members are holding out for more lucrative contracts, the fourth season has been delayed another month. Although, it might not be holding out so much as it is they just can't read.
Because MTV seems to make money off of exploiting people who are too dumb to realize it, they're going to have to find four other suckers. Back to scouring the bowels of the Midwest for more pregnant teenagers.
A production insider told RadarOnline.com ,"The cast was meant to leave on April 18, but now with the contact troubles, they won't be leaving until May."
Another factor delaying shooting-- Italy is apparently too good to dumb itself down for our entertainment. Producers are having a hard time finding venues that will allow the volatile cast members to film and party. One newspaper wrote,
"They embody the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized,"
Which is ridiculous, because I don't think that even half of the cast has any Italian in them whatsoever. The Olive Garden is more Italianized than the cast of Jersey Shore.
And you can get unlimited breadsticks at Olive Garden. Yeah, I know that's completely irrelevant. But they're pretty good.
