‘The Show With Vinny’ premieres May 2 at 10 p.m.! Watch HollywoodLife.com’s interview with Vinny (and his crazy family) for a peek at the shenanigans to come.
Is Staten Island the new Hollywood? … Of course not. But thanks to Vinny Guadagnino, the number of A-listers spotted in the New York City borough has greatly increased. Stars like Lil Wayne, Ke$ha and even The Vampire Diaries‘ Kat Graham have paid a visit to the former Jersey Shore star’s house — OK, it’s technically his mom‘s house — as guests on his new MTV series, The Show With Vinny.
“I have a show now, and my name is Vinny,” the star explained to HollywoodLife.com during a recent visit to our NYC offices. “So we were like, ‘We should call it The Show With Vinny.'”
But Vinny’s not alone! Along for the ride is his mom Paola and his Uncle Nino — whom Jersey Shore fans fondly remember from those infamous hot tub scenes — and they get to play with their little bambino’s celebrity guests.
“I do all the eating,” Nino told us.
Paola, meanwhile, does all the cooking — and all the judging.
“Ew, you get naked?” she asked Nino when I brought up his little glitter-fest with Ke$ha. And yes, he does.
