Lawsuit Reveals DJ Pauly D’s SHOCKING Salary For Jersey Shore!

The most fascinating part of the lawsuit against Pauly D is the SHOCKING salary of the Jersey Shore cast!

Published

on

The Hollywood Reporter landed a major scoop in covering a lawsuit against Jersey Shore…. but the most fascinating part of the story isn’t the lawsuit as much as the SHOCKING salary of it’s cast!

It goes like this, according to THR, “DJ Pauly D is being sued by his former talent agency – ICM for allegedly refusing to hand over commissions from a deal to star on the MTV show.”

The lawsuit was filed Thursday in an LA court, and it alleges that “Pauly D” – who in the world that is REAL, not “reailty TV” – goes by Paul DelVecchio, owes them $370,000 for the past two seasons of the show. (They only get 10 percent… so do the math… he’s making major bank!) Better yet – don’t do the math, and read on for the numbers:
 
The talent agency began working with Pauly D in 2010, eventually entering into a contract that would entitle them to 10 percent of of his compensation across any of the business opportunities the land and negotiate for him. They then secured contract options for seasons 2 and 3 of Jersey Shore, negotiating raises along the way.
 
Check out this passage from The Hollywood Reporter, which details the salary:
 

The third amendment to the MTV agreement meant that Pauly D got a $400,000 signing bonus and $100,000 for each episode.

For the fourth season — which included 12 episodes, a launch special, multiple “after-shows,” a reunion show, merchandising and bonuses — ICM totals $1.6 million of compensation due to Pauly D. The agency then includes $107,037 for contractual participations and a $200,000 “thank you” bonus, bringing Pauly D’s compensation tor season 4 of the show to more than $1.9 million.

They also write that Pauly D is said to be earning $2.1 million from season five, which ended March 15.

Pauly D now has a spinoff show on MTV.

What’s interesting about this is that one might argue that Pauly D isn’t the biggest name on the cast… What does this say for Snooki or The Situation? (A 2010 report claimed that in 2011 Mike Sorrentino would make $10 million from TV, sponsorship opportunities and public appearances.) Yeesh. That said, MTV isn’t going to pay more than they can afford. They’re making a ton of revenue from the advertising. From the sounds of it, it looks like it’s time for Pauly to learn how show business and agencies work. And for all the cast members, I would advice to save and invest wisely. You never know when reality fame can turn to dust.

If this isn’t shocking, my bad. But you at least might find it frustrating when you see what 2.1 million a season gets you these days. Here’s a refresher:

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
