That whole Jersey Shore on strike business? All a bunch of BS, at least that’s what Jenni “JWOWW” Farley is saying. She’s on the cover of Steppin’ Out magazine (with very very big hair) giving “The Best Jersey Shore Interview Ever…Seriously.” Addressing the strike rumors, JWoww revealed, “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.”
Quick background check: reports surfaced that the JC crew were miffed at making a paltry $10,000 per episode. That amount was only valid till Season 2, according to Snooki and the gang. The Situation took care of the situation, supposedly negotiating more money for himself. The buzz suggests $30,000 per episode but the official amounts aren’t out yet, and more importantly, each cast member won’t be getting the same kinda cash.
But JWoww says that taping was not stalled while the bargaining was on, adding, “We all know that production 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.”
So no drama? None? At all? Over to Miss J, “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.” Yes Ma’am!
