Citizens of Italy rejoice! The Jersey Shore invasion of Italy has been put on hold for a month, thanks in part to a contract dispute and serious resistance from Italian nightclubs and hotels who won’t allow MTV’s cameras to film the spray tanned cast inside their venues.

“Several of the housemates haven’t signed their contracts and until they do, the cast can’t go to Italy,” a production insider revealed to

“Producers are also having a really difficult time finding venues for the cast to party at too.”

Florence, the regional capital of Tuscany, has been chosen as the Guidos’ base.

“The cast was meant to leave on April 18, but now with the contact troubles, they won’t be leaving until May.”

Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and Pauly D have refused to film until more lucrative contracts are hammered out.

No money. No juiceheads.
