MTV: We're not recasting 'Jersey Shore'
Love it or not, it looks like Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi isn’t leaving the “Shore” just yet.
Reports have been bounced around saying that the current “Jersey Shore” cast will be replaced with new, less expensive members after season 5 wraps, but MTV says it isn't breaking up with the original Seaside Heights crew.
A spokesperson for the network told the Hollywood Reporter, "We love the present cast, and their summer adventures have just begun. We currently have no plans to recast the show.”
Earlier reports quoted sources as saying that the infamous reality TV stars were simply costing too much, with each cast member rumored to be draining the network of a $100,000 an episode.
But even if they did find a new group of super-tanned fist-pumpers, the old ones wouldn’t exactly disappear back into anonymity. MTV already has spinoff deals in the works for Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio as well as Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Snooks, plus a development deal for Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.
The “Jersey Shore” crew, which has been filming/getting into car accidents in Florence, Italy, for season 4, is reportedly back in Jersey to get to work on season 5.
The fourth season of “Shore” arrives August 4.

This show needs to end. I am sick to death of seeing news about this bunch of unintelligent trash.
Jersey Shore sucks anyway..Snookie shows bad taste on the screen and off..this shoe should not be recasted..but booted..
I'd like to snookie her cupcakes!
I'd like to snack on Snookie's tatas.
Troll, I'd bet you would like to slide your dong in there, too.
These cast members get paid more than the teachers that educate our children, the police who protect our neighborhoods, and the firefighters who save lives, all of whom struggle with lack of funding. The cast is paid to be filmed partying, with no responsibility or accountability whatsoever. What is wrong with this picture???
i was embarassed to recently be in italy at the same time as jersey shore's cast. many fellow americans and lots of real italians felt this way as well. the show is a black eye to the usa. i'd rather have george bush wandering about italy, as at least he doesn't think of himself as socially relevant, whereas the j.s. cast thinks they're relevant to the order of the universe. unfortunately the only thing they're truly relevant to is giving people diarrhea. maybe they should be crowned as doctors?
Yes, we drove down to Florida in March and were shocked at what we saw ALL around us! Even our 8 and 10 yr old kids commented on all the obesity we saw! It truly wasn't meant to be mean, we were all just so shocked. The sad thing is, Canada won't be too far behind. (sigh)
I just can't believe people are still watching this garbage show, oh wait, it's mostly Americans watching, sitting getting even more obese to catch up to Snookie or whatever the heck her name is! This really is becoming a completely pathetic society if this is what we need to entertain ourselves.
Have you been to a mall or restaurant or any public place in America lately? It's not suprising at all that this trash is popular. Vacuous grazers everywhere you look.
It doesn't surprise me that they are replacing them. Fresh blood is their only attempt to save the show! But don't feel bad for the cast; they'll still be raking in millions from endorsements, lines of clothing and sunglasses, and appearance fees!
I bet Snookie goes down like a wounded tuna.
All of the babes in that pic look like they want it bad. From anybody!
I love tan bewbs
I love all bewbs.
glad to see grease ball ronnie and his bung buddy sitch are still representing the ho`mo movement on mtv
Mad didn't say he wanted to rub anything, that was the next persons user name. Mad's not gross!
try better that http://www.SUPERSONIC.US.COM
I think Snooki is gorgeous. You all are just jealous they make money partying and being immature.
LOL Whatever helps you sleep at night.
But actually I was laughing at the fact they photoshopped her into the photo and she looks huge and out of place.
Right. Jealous. Ever since I was a very young girl I always dreamed about being a 4' tall, 200 lb orange creature with a double digit IQ. The guy on Saturday Night Live who impersonates Snooki is much better looking than she is even with the chest hair.
WOW, IF YA THINK SHE IS GORGEOUS..? YA MIGHT WANT TO GET YER EYES FIXED AND YER MENTAL HEALTH EVALUATED..
Boy Snooli should take some anti-gas tablets, you see those bubbles.
Mad was having a cookie monster moment and was just craving milk.
How did that labatamy go?
What is it those Republicans always say? If your rich that means you work hard for your money and deserve a break. Give the Jersey cast a tax cut and lets get this economy back on track.
If I don't hear a positive response MTV, I'll submit my comment AGAIN!! I'm serious, stop with the reality bull meadow-muffins, & bring the MUSIC!!
What happened to The Music, MTV?? Have you forgotten that is what the "M" sands for? I used to love the "breaking videos", concert series, the specials, the accoustic jams, & the dance shows! Please, bring back real, talented entertainers, & spare us these souped up, egoed out, juiced up nobodies who can do nothing but party! There is nothing special about that,MTV! All of us can do what they do, but we cant all sing & play instruments, or dance like trained, talented people. Thats worth watching, Jersey Shore is Not!! Are you hearing me,MTV??PLEEEESE!

Forget recast..."revoke" that sh!t
Darn. I would have been so much happier if they had said they were never airing the show again. And mad, you seriously need a hobby.
Ughh that stupid show is still going on its a bad influence on people almost to the point of a cult following they need to be stopped
Well thank the heavens...We have enough problems without having to worry about this!Another crisis averted, which is great since clearly, MTV is "too big to fail"...
"UH, SCOWSE Me. Can I get some more Malt Liquor over here!!"
That is just gross Mad Raeper. Why would you want to rub on miss piggys naassty parts? GROSS!
I'd like to drop a couple of biscuits in their little pool party. Talentless idiots everyone of them.
she needs a pearl necklace.
I swear I can see snookis right nip in this pic and i'm none too happy about it, ew.
Yeah, it's on her face ( Her Nose )
Arrogant pieces of dog manure, everyone of them.
I would like to say everybody who watches this show sucks as much as they do...
