What is happening with Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino? It depends on whether you want to trust TMZ or MTV on the matter. Both are quite unsatisfactory; TMZ has been wrong on a few things lately and MTV aren’t saying very much at all! I guess we’ll just have to present you with the facts and let our intelligent blog followers make up their own minds.+
Vinny you will recognize as the only cast member without a permanent tan and the only male without a juiced-up neck that appears wider than his head. The rumors are that he has left the Jersey Shore show, possibly for good.
Guadagnino has been reported as struggling with homesickness throughout the cast’s trip to Italy and their return to the shore. They are currently shooting Season 5 of the MTV hit. Apparently, several days ago, it got so bad that Vinny said he was leaving, but the rest of the cast were able to convince him to stick around.
Having got into a major argument with another cast member late on Friday night July 1, though, Vinny had apparently had enough. He was photographed checking into a hotel that night.
However, TMZ is reporting that things got worse and that Vinny is currently back on Staten Island, spending time with his family. But, contrary to their reports which soon spread around the Internet, MTV says it has no plans to recast the stars.
But is Vinny gone?
Vinny is a pain in the ass to most of his fellow cast members and probably would not waste too much energy talking him back. But his manager is refusing to confirm or deny that the “burnt out” star returned home to Staten Island with no desire to return to shooting. The crew had very little free time between returning to the United States after shooting Season 4 in Italy before production began for Season 5 back in Seaside Heights.
MTV have issued the following statement: “We don’t comment on series while they are in production but viewers can be assured they will have answers when Season 5 premieres.”
Season 4 in Italy premieres on August 4. Maybe we will have to wait a while to know if Vinny returns. But what do you think?
