'Jersey Shore' contract troubles delay Italy trip

April 6, 2011 at 1:03 PM ET

The people of Italy just received a one-month “Jersey Shore” reprieve.

Although the Seaside Heights crowd was set to bring their GTL lifestyle to Florence, Italy for “Shore’s” fourth season, Radar Online reports the planned trip has been delayed thanks to ongoing contract negotiations.

"Several of the housemates haven't signed their contracts and until they do, the cast can't go to Italy," an insider explained. "Producers are also having a really difficult time finding venues for the cast to party at, too."

What? No Karma Nightclub in the old country? No problem. The gang is bound to find somewhere to pump their fists — just as soon as they sign on the dotted lines. “Shore” stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio are each said to be holding out for a better payday.

"The cast was meant to leave on April 18,” the source said. “But now with the contact troubles, they won't be leaving until May."
