Is it R.I.P. to the days of G.T.L.? Maybe not, but the Jersey Shore crew as you know it is changing.
"After this group comes back from Italy and shoots season 5 this summer, that will be the end for them," a source close to the show told Us Weekly.
So why would MTV replace the show’s household names such as Snooki, J-WOWW and The Situation?
For one, their replacements will come "a lot cheaper" that the reported $100,000 per episode the current cast members are earning, the source told the magazine.
There's also bigger and better things on the horizon for at least a few of the current crop, as Snooki, Pauly D and J-WOWW reportedly have spin-offs in the works.
