MANHATTAN — Fist-pumping investment bankers got a morning lift Tuesday, as cast members from the "Jersey Shore" rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange.

Ronnie, Vinny, DJ Pauly D. and "The Situation" took a break from their usual schedule of pumping iron, tanning and doing laundry to make the financial center appearance, where they were joined by bronzed beauties "Snooki," "J-Woww," Angelina and Sammi "Sweetheart."

The gang of self-proclaimed "guidos" and "guidettes" was in town to promote the second season of their reality mega hit, in which they head to Miami Beach to "beat up the beat" and, occasionally, each other.

The second season, which promises even more "vibin', smooshin' and grenade launching," premieres Thursday at 10 p.m. on MTV.

But a third installment is already in production, with the cast returning to the actual Jersey Shore.

While the reality stars may not know much about financial markets, they seem to know something about contract negotiations.

After sharing about $25,000 for the entire first season, the cast members will each earn that much per episode for the third season, according to the New York Times.
