Jersey Shore cast rumored to change after upcoming season five

    We read earlier today over at the Daily News that season five, which begins shooting on Monday in Seaside Heights, could be the last we see of MTV’s current “Jersey Shore” lineup.

    Naturally, MTV denies that anyone is getting the boot.

    Whatever the truth of it is, no one should feel too bad for Pauly D, Snooki, The Situation, and the gang. They each make a reported $100,000 per episode, and they each charge their own rates for appearances. And apparently three cast members have already signed on to spin-off series with MTV. 

    It just goes to show you really can’t keep a good beach down.

    Are you going to miss the lovable juiceheads and guidettes? Who could ever take their place?
