Reality Show Cast Demands Raises — and Doesn’t Get the Desired Response From the Network

February 20, 2014  •  Post A Comment

The cast of a reality show wants more money from the network, but the network is playing hardball. TMZ.com reports that the hard-partying cast of “Party Down South” is putting the squeeze on CMT for a bump in pay, with CMT ready to show cast members the door if they fail to reach an agreement.

Cast members currently receive only $500 per episode, and they are asking for raises for the show’s second season, the story reports.

“Sources close to the show tell us CMT had a conference call last Friday with the cast and their newly hired managers — and one of the stars, Mattie Breaux, went off … bitching about salaries, and a plan to shoot seasons 2 and 3 back-to-back,” the article notes.

The report adds: "We’re told Mattie eventually hung up, but producers were unfazed — and are now saying if Mattie wants to quit … they won’t stop her."

CMT is offering $1,000 for each cast member to shoot a reunion episode, and the parties are hoping new contracts are signed within the next week, the story adds.

  1. The only thing I find surprising is that there is going to be a second season of this awful, awful show.
