    I never knew the Jersey Shore cast earned that much money. Or in fact, any reality TV show stars..

    Yeah, Pauly D made 11 million over the past year. Kim K. made 18 million over the past year. icon_eek.gif

    It's truly amazing.

    Judge Judy gets paid 45 million dollars to read the shit out of the people that come into her courtroom. Wow, it must be nice.
