Jersey Shore: It's All About The Money!

We're sick of hearing about the Jersey Shore cast asking for money. The last we heard was that they were striking in order to receive more money on 'Season 3' and it seems like they might be getting what they want.

Rumor has it that they are close to inking a deal that will get them a payday close to $30,000 an episode. MTV reportedly countered "with a number that's close to that figure," THR reports.

When they were nobodies on Season 1, they received $5000 an episode. They negotiated to getting $10,000 during season 2 and now that they are splitting up Season 2 into two parts they want money for it or else they will not shoot.

They were scheduled to shoot at Seaside Heights, NJ on Monday, but production stalled due to contract negotiations.

The two big stars of the show Snooki and The Situation will be receiving more money than the rest, followed by Vinny, Pauly D and Jwoww.

Season 2 of the Jersey Shore debuts July 29.
