The kings and queens of fist pumping aren't going anywhere yet.
Amid rumors that MTV is planning on replacing the cast of Jersey Shore with a newer, cheaper cast, one of the founding fathers of the "Gym. Tan. Laundry" clan isn't worried.
"I think we're irreplaceable," Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio told PEOPLE Friday in Las Vegas. "I don't think they could replace us. They'd just be people trying to be like us, anyway."

Gym, tan, laundry may have been the essentials in Seaside Heights, N.J., but now that the Jersey Shore cast has officially touched down in Italy, the only thing they need is, well, Rosetta Stone.
In fact, Ronnie Magro tells PEOPLE he ordered the language software as soon as he heard about the GTL gang's season 4 destination.
"I need to know how to order grilled chicken when I get down there," he told PEOPLE before they arrived in Italy, where they were greeted by a crowd of fans on Friday. "I can't have pasta every day!"
And he wasn't the only one concerned about learning the language – or keeping away from the carbs.

Thanks to the Jersey Shore, what happens in Seaside Heights doesn't stay in Seaside Heights – when the "GTL" crew are in town.
But for fans who want to know more about the lives of some of Shore's craziest characters, MTV just confirmed two new, still-untitled spinoffs staring Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley, and Paul "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio.
"The Jersey Shore cast is at the center of the show's success, and Nicole, Pauly D and Jenni have become household names as a result of their unique, sometimes outrageous and often hilarious personalities," Chris Linn, MTV executive vice president of programming, says in a statement. "We're excited to put the spotlight on their lives away from the shore as they pursue their individual passions, careers and relationships."

Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio doesn't need a girlfriend – his Jersey Shore roommates Ronnie Magro and Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola have taught him that.
"I can be single," he told PEOPLE recently at a party at Moon Nightclub in Las Vegas. "I got enough drama with their relationship. I don't want a relationship if it's like that. That's not healthy."
Things got so heated between Ronnie and Sammi in last week's epidsode, that Sammi decided to leave the Seaside, N.J., house after a huge blowout fight with Ronnie.

She may have clashed with Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, but Jersey Shore's new girl Deena Nicole Cortese seems to be making friends just fine – especially with the guys she hopes could become more than just friends.
From the get-go, she showed off her flirty side toward Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, stripping off her bikini bottoms in a not-so-sober moment.
"At the time, whenever I was drunk for some reason, I always thought Mike was good-looking," she says on Monday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show about her time in Seaside Heights, N.J. "When I'm not drunk, I'm like a normal person in front of him. When I'm drunk, I look embarrassing."

Don't expect to see Chloë Sevigny in any hot tub scenes on the new season of Jersey Shore.
When asked by Interview magazine if there was any truth to the rumors that she's dating the show's star, Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, the Big Love actress says, "No, but I wish, because that would be hilarious."
"That would be the weirdest couple in the world. It would be like the apocalypse," she adds. "We represent extremes, in opposite directions. So for us two to come together, it would be a very strange meeting of the minds or colliding of two worlds."

Let the Jersey Shore spinoffs begin.
Paul DelVecchio, aka DJ Pauly D, has signed a series option deal with MTV for a new show that would focus on his burgeoning music career away from the beach, Variety reports.
"At the heart of Jersey Shore is the unique and genuine cast, and Pauly D truly embodies both qualities," MTV programming chief Chris Linn says. "We know viewers are curious about his life away from the shore, and we look forward to exploring new possibilities around that."

You like Vin Diesel. You really, really "Like" him.
The actor, 43, demolished the competition in PEOPLE's first-ever Sexiest Man Alive on Facebook poll, earning 56 percent of the vote in a five-way race, with lots of help from his 18 million Facebook fans.
So, now Vin can brag that he's not just an attractive guy – he's the hottest man in social media.

Paul "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio's hair weighed a little less on Saturday night than it had in years, and it was weighing heavily on his mind.
The Jersey Shore star decided to forego the hair gel for the first time in a decade as part of his Halloween costume – he dressed up as Justin Bieber.
"I'll go out with a hat on, but as far as going out in public with no product in my hair, I bet it's been 10 years since I've done that," Delvecchio, 30, told PEOPLE before deejaying at Las Vegas's Moon Nightclub.
