There were no fist pumps, Ed Hardy T-shirts or tanning in Seaside Heights, N.J. this weekend.
Well, there probably was -- the cast of MTV’s hit Jersey Shore just wasn’t doing it.
The cast was supposed to begin shooting "at home" scenes (Monday) for Season 3, but we're told JWoww , Ronnie, Sammi, Pauly D and Vinny -- who are spread out between New York and Rhode Island -- told the crews they weren't shooting without new contracts.
Sources close to the show tell TMZ the cast feels they can make more money doing appearances for two months, rather than filming the show.
So could this derail Season 3 before Season 2 even starts to air next week?
It isn’t clear but TMZ said that 150 crew were ready and waiting for the reality stars to show up in Seaside Heights.
And, all this strike talk has producers talking about possibly canning the cast, reported TMZ.
