We're going to need more lotion here.
MTV has ordered up a second season of Jersey Shore, and all your faves have signed on for another go-around, sources close to the negotiations tell E! News.
Twelve new episodes of the accidental cultural phenomenon will air this summer.
It being the wintertime (meaning less tanning, more gym and laundry), Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino, Jenni "JWoww" Farley and the other lucky wicked-awesome types who live with them were all available for off-season negotiations.
But considering how big-time they all are now, what with the crowded club appearances and the famous fans, we hear that it was a little trickier getting them all on board this time around.
The New York Post reported this week that the GTL mates wanted $10,000 per episode and lots of leeway for club appearances for their continued participation in the surprise hit.
We doubt that MTV will be confirming anytime soon what they've had to shell out to keep their prize stallions (and fillies) in the stable.
"Our audience has fallen in love with Jersey Shore and its amazing cast who have really grown together as a family," said Tony DiSanto, president of programming for MTV. "That bond gives the show its heart, and we're thrilled to reunite these friends to bring fans more of what they love—laughs, love, drama and of course, GTL."
