Lovers of all things guido were understandably devastated by the rumors that their beloved Jersey Shore may be experiencing a total total recasting after season five; thus, fans were relieved when MTV quickly debunked all of that talk. Now, more comfort has come our way in the form of wise words from cast member Pauly D, who spoke to Fox News (of all places) about the rumors.

"I don't think it's true. I don't think you can replace us because we all have our own personalities and it's not replaceable."

Damn straight. Who else can GTL like MVP? Or match Snooki's pickle obsession? Catch grenades for their boys like the best of them? These are questions we shouldn't have to ask ourselves.

The cast is currently back in Seaside Heights filming the aforementioned fifth season of the series; Season Four, taped in Italy, is set to begin on August 4th.
