Pauly D on MTV Recasting 'Jersey Shore'

There were reports Friday that MTV is planning to hire a new cast for their hit show "Jersey Shore" -- but the cable network has denied any such thing.


"We love the present cast, and their summer adventures have just begun. We currently have no plans to recast the show," MTV reps said in a statement.

"Extra" special correspondent Holly Madison caught up with "Shore" star Pauly D at the Palms Resort, who told her, "Yeah, MTV gave a statement and they said that that's not the case. They are not going to recast us. I don't think that they can recast us. Each one of us has our own personality, you can't replace us. They only have people trying to be like us!"

The fourth season of Jersey Shore, filmed in Italy, will premiere August 4 on MTV.
