Mamma mia! Yes, folks, the rumors are true. MTV confirmed that the fourth season of its hit show "Jersey Shore" will be filmed in Italy ... if MTV gets permission from the Italian government. But some Italian-American organizations are not too happy about Snooki and the rest of the "Shore" cast representing young Americans in Italy and are concerned about the stereotyping that may follow. Joseph V. Del Raso, president of the National Italian American Foundation, shared his thoughts with Yeas & Nays on Tuesday afternoon: "It is unfortunate that American television producers want to export an image of young Americans that has little to do with the image of most of our youth. American youth has so much to offer the modern world and it is certainly not represented by the caricatures portrayed by the 'Jersey Shore' cast."

Hopefully, they'll just forgetaboutit.
