In news that will send fans of MTV’s breakout reality smash Jersey Shore screaming their well-gelled heads off we hear that the entire cast of the debauchery-lovin’ docusoap will be replaced for the forthcoming third season. Doron Ofir, casting director for the hit MTV show and the brainchild behind other reality hits like A Shot At Love with Tila Tequila and the upcoming Friggin’ Weddings, confirmed the news in a scoop to Blackbook Magazine on Tuesday.

According to reports, the decision came after castmates-turned-pop culture stars Snooki, The Situation, J Woww, Pauly D, Sammi, and Ronnie demanded a pay raise to return to the Shore for a third season. A move that infuriated MTV chiefs. The self professed guidos and guidettes were already being paid $10,000 per episode for Jersey Shore Season 2 (which premieres July 29).

Apparently, they wanted more.

Jersey Shore became the highest-rated reality soap in MTV history last winter after eight twentysomethings were plucked from obscurity and cast to spend a summer of drunken party in the Garden State resort town of Seaside Heights.

MTV has not commented on the casting change.
