Jersey Shore fans' hearts around the country broke on Friday when reports emerged that the hit reality show was being re-cast, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the stars are sticking on the show that made them famous.
"It is garbage, I have idea where this came from," a source close to the show exclusively told RadarOnline.com. "The cast is very happy with their deals."
"It is conjuncture that they are getting canned because everyone has their own spin-offs, this is strictly a guess," the insider revealed. "MTV isn't saying anything, who ever got this is trying to find a story where this is no story.
"I've never ever heard it. I've never even heard a peep about this," the source said.
"The cast hasn't heard anything like this either. I saw the report this morning and was laughing about it," revealed the insider.
Far from being given the boot by the network, the guidos and guidettes are getting ready to start filming season five back in Seaside Heights after returning from their stint in Florence, Italy where they spent the fourth season.
The rumor of the new cast was fueled because three of the Jersey Shore's original stars are venturing out on their own in spin-off shows.
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Jenni "J-Woww" Farley and Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio have all already signed up for spin-offs with the network, leaving Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Vinny Guadagnino, Sammi Giancola and newcomer Deena Nicole Cortese out in the cold if a new cast comes in.
