J-Woww on ‘Jersey Shore’: ‘Never any talk of a strike’
HollywoodNews.com: When it comes to setting the ‘Situation’ straight, the “Jersey Shore” cast sends in Jenni “J-Woww” Farley.
And what does J-Woww have to say? The “Jersey Shore” cast never went on strike to earn more money for Season 3.
“That is by far a very untrue rumor. You have to laugh at crazy reports like that. Stories about strikes and things make us all laugh,” J-Woww says to Steppin’ Out magazine.
“We all know that production (for season 3) is right on schedule. When the rumor first came out I actually had no idea what it was all about. None of it was true. Nobody ever talked about going on strike. I called Nicole [Snooki] and asked, ‘What is going on?’ Nobody knew anything about a strike. We all just laughed about it.
“To answer your question: No, there was never any talk of a strike and everyone is very happy with the way the production has been going. Don’t believe what you read,” she adds.
Essentially, MTV announced that the entire cast would be back for season 3; a vote of confidence in their work on season 2. They will not be replaced with fresh faces which was the rumor early on in the year.
Apparently, each cast member is being paid close to $30,000 an episode per the L.A. Times.
An US Magazine source reveals “Snooki and Situation would make the most. Then second tier would be Vinny, Pauly D and J-Woww. The third tier would be Ronnie and Sammi.”
