Vinny tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively: ‘Family dinner is very important to Italian households — I had plans for Snooki to come and she didn’t.’ Is he truly mad or just jealous that she’s dating someone else?
Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino is totally pissed at his co-star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi for skipping out on a dinner on Aug. 14 at his house. Vinny held the dinner for fans that won a contest, but Snooki was a no show — probably opting to hang out with her boyfriend Jionni LaValle instead. Could the fact that Vinny and Snooki used to be into each other before she started dating Jionni be the actual reason that Vinny’s mad at her?
“A family dinner is very important to Italian households,” Vinny, who has partnered up with Philips Norelco tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “I had plans for Snooki to come over and eat and she didn’t come. So yeah, it kind of insulted me a little bit.”
And while Snooki has been with Jionni for months now, Vinny still doesn’t care to get to know him. Is he jealous? “I really don’t know him that well,” he admits. “She does her own thing with him. I’m not involved in the drama. I kind of just have a good time with Pauly [D] and we chill. So when the boyfriends come over, we kind of just say what’s up and we just keep it moving. I don’t really know that much about him.”
But there is one cast member that Vinny’s not mad at — his bro-friend Pauly D. In fact, Vinny’s going through withdrawals not seeing Pauly for the past week! “It is the most important relationship,” he reveals. “I miss him because we spent the last 110 days together literally as we went right from Italy to Jersey. I’ve never spent that much time waking up to a grown man before and going to sleep with one. We do miss each other. We’ve been texting. It’s been about a week now [since I've seen him].” Aww!
Maybe Sammi needs to step it up and act more like one of the real Italian women they met while filming in Florence. Vinny appreciates Italianitas more than American girls!
“Italian girls seem older,” he confesses. “They are a lot more mature, a lot more reserved. A 19-year-old girl over there would seem like a 30-year-old [here] just the way she sits and smokes her cigarette and her fashion sense.They’re not like up dancing on bars.”
“I’d take a wife from Italy,” he adds. “I like outsourcing the women!”
