Jersey Shore

US Magazine is reporting that MTV is set to recast Jersey Shore, citing the soaring cost of keeping the current stars signed on. 

Each cast member reportedly hauls in $100,000 per episode of the hit series. Signing on new stars would slash the costs.

"They will leave on a high note!" A source tells the mag (Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Jenni "J-Woww" Farley and Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio all have spin-offs in the works).

MTV has denied the claims, with a rep telling the magazine "We love the present cast, and their summer adventures have just begun. We currently have no plans to recast the show."
