For the second time in days, Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagninohas left the Shore house during filming, and this time around, it’s for good according to TMZ.
As reported, MTV is currently filming the fifth season of the mega hit show back in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. Vinny was first spotted checking into a hotel days ago on Wednesday after he reportedly got into it with another castmate. He ended up returning the next day.
However TMZ is now reporting Vinny left the house again last night after getting into another argument with a cast member and headed back home to Staten Island. The reason? He was feeling “burned out” and had been complaining of “being homesick.”
Sources tell TMZ the cast convinced him to return after exiting the show the first time. The sources however add that Vinny has been a pain to live with and his castmates do not plan on begging him to return this go around.
A rep for MTV stated, “We don’t comment on series while they are in production but viewers can be assured they will have answers when Season Five premieres.” The above picture of Vinny was taken on Thursday after he returned to the Shore house following a night away in a hotel.
It seems MTV’s plan to have the cast tape seasons 4 and 5 back to back is backfiring. Right after the cast finished taping season 4 in Italy, MTV had them return back to Jersey where they were kept secluded for a week before filming began on season 5 last weekend.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON VINNY LEAVING THE SHOW? SHOULD MTV REPLACE HIM?
Proving that her fame is international, Bethenny Frankel is talking about the same old things her reality shows and her struggles in an interview with Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph!
In the interview, Bethenny explains she enjoys doing a reality show, but having dueling reality shows Skating With The Stars and Bethenny Ever After was a bit too much: “I foolishly took on another show, Skating with the Stars, at the same time (as Bethenny Ever After). To take on two shows, a new baby, a new marriage, the negotiation to sell my company took a lot out of me.”
Bethenny who is dedicated to famewhoring her fans generally doesn’t mind the cameras in her face, as she discloses why she never requests any private moments away from the glaring lens of Andy Cohen: “I don’t do that because it would compromise the integrity of the show. Sadly, most reality shows aren’t real at all. I feel a responsibility to be truthful.” We’ve noticed, Miss ‘I can’t go to the bathroom without a boom mic’!
This is also why she feels it’s important to make her therapy sessions part of her show: “Therapy itself is difficult to do to begin with, but not difficult to have filmed because you forget the camera is there. If I can help other women understand a little better about themselves by seeing me go through therapy, that’s the most enlightening thing about the show. I run to the therapist. It’s valuable, I certainly need it, I’m proud of it.”
In other Bethenny news –it’s all about one-year-old daughter, Bryn and like mother, like daughter it seems Bryn has a lot to say! In a recent interview with SheKnows, Bethenny gives us the skinny on Bryn’s new loquaciousness: “Yeah, she’s talking. She says mama, balloon, wow, and her newest word ‘ma-na-na-na,’ which means banana.”
And speaking of food, Bethenny who describes her daughter as a “mama’s girl” also disclosed that the two bond over food – which Bryn loves and Bethenny tolerates a couple bites at a time: “She eats everything and since that’s one of my passions, I find it fun.” Apparently Bryn has quite the diverse culinary repertoire: “Her favorite food is Mediterranean. She eats grape leaves, artichoke pesto, mango cilantro salsa, baba ganoush. Just this week she had Indian food and Thai food.” Here’s hoping Bryn won’t be on the Skinnygirl diet anytime soon! Although, I am counting the days until Bethenny releases some sort of baby food cookbook.
Also, next for Bethenny and hubby Jason Hoppy aka Team Frankel is, of course, Skinnygirl Baby No. 2! “We’re preparing, I want another girl,” says Bethenny. Does that mean season three of Bethenny Ever After will feature the same thing as season one of Bethenny Getting Married a new pregnancy and preparation for the upcoming Hoppy?

So would you buy a Skinnygirl Babyfood Cookbook written by Bethenny? Are you going to be watching Season Three of Bethenny Getting Married?
We reported on the show’s spoilers weeks ago, courtesy of Bachelor insider Reality Steve, who confirmed that Ashley is indeed engaged to one of her contestants. You can click below to read those spoilers and find out who.
In the meantime, we will refer to Ashley’s fiance as AF. The latest issue of In Touch Weekly magazine is reporting that AF, despite assuring Ashley that he is a good guy who is ready to settle down, is playing her. The mag warns that Ashley is going to get her heart broken.
An insider reveals that AF, who has been spotted with Ashley since filming ended, is known as an irrepressible flirt around his hometown. A source says on June 24, he met a male and female friend at a local bar at 8:30p.m. And as he talked about his experiences on The Bachelorette, “he held the girl’s hand and looked into her eyes,” a witness says. “They looked really close. Before she got up to leave, she gave [AF] a huge hug; it was really intimate.”
The source adds that after she was gone, AF kept starring at two attractive blondes at the table next to them. “He couldn’t take his eyes off the girls,” the witness adds. “It was like he just couldn’t get enough of all the women.”
And during another outing, a different source reveals AF “was so aggressive and drunk” with the women there that he almost got kicked out of the venue.
Another woman tells In Touch that if AF and Ashley are engaged, he is definitely not being faithful. “If Ashley picked him, he’s not being faithful – he’s asked me out a bunch of times.”
“In real life, he’s very different from how he is on the show,” the source insists. “He seems genuine when he’s talking to Ashley, but he’s actually kind of a jerk.” Yikes.
Seems like the Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderskisituation all over again. If this story is true, it wouldn’t come as a total shock as Ashley seems to have a thing for the bad boys aka Bentley Williams. But if Ashley was actually fooled this time around by AF, then she can’t be to blame right?
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS STORY? IF THIS IS TRUE REGARDING ASHLEY’S FIANCE, IS SHE TO BLAME FOR PICKING A JERK?
Jennifer has a new boyfriend according to the Necole Bitchie blog, who spotted Jennifer above with her new beau Lucas James at a recent event. So who is Lucas? Just an upgrade from Eric a celebrity trainer/nutritionist.
The Bossip blog adds that Jennifer and Lucas became official over the Memorial Day weekend, and the two have been spotted getting cozy in New York, Phoenix, Los Angeles, and Miami. In fact Jennifer confirmed she is indeed dating Lucas and when asked if he’s going to be on the show, she answered no.
Lucas is described as a personal trainer with a “luxurious healthy lifestyle company,” who pushes his high-end clientele to make weight-loss a lifestyle as opposed to just a gym routine. Lucas however has a background in reality television. In 2008, he won “Date My Ex: Jo & Slade”, which starred Jo De La Rosaand Slade Smileyof the Real Housewives of Orange County.
More photos of Lucas and Jen below! And as for Eric, he tweeted days ago that Jen had gone “Hollywood.”

A week before its premiere, VH1 has now released the season trailer for Famous Food!
The new series features a group of “celebrities” including three with actual talent, two prostitution whores and two good ol famewhores.
In the trailer, Big Brother alum “Mike Boogie” Malin, who is part owner of the Dolce Group, informs Heidi Montag, Jake Pavelka, Danielle Staub, DJ Paul and Juicy J of Three 6 Mafia, Vincent Pastore, andAshley Dupre that they have to work together to open a restaurant, though in the end, only one of them will win a partnership with the Dolce Restaurant Group in L.A.
On the 13th episode this season titled “Your Tweeting Heart,” Sonja enlists the help of a feng shui expert to bring more positive energy into her life. Meanwhile, Ramona plans a surprise party for Sonja; Simon confronts Jill at Cindy’s product-launch soiree; and Kelly reaches out to Alex about what she deems to be Simon’s odd behavior. A preview clip is below!
Meanwhile, despite being off the show for almost a year now, it appearsBethenny Frankel’s former costars can’t stop talking smack about her. Though in their defense, she also talkssmack about them on occasion.
In a very recent interview, the always classyCountess LuAnn de Lesseps revealed she is more than glad Bethenny is no longer on the show. “I’m so glad she’s gone,” says Lulu. “Oh, yeah. Let her go off with her husband, off into the sunset. God bless her.”
The Countess then goes on to sing the praises of Kelly Bensimon, whom she feels has been spectacular this season! Are we watching the same show? “Kelly’s been amazing this season, and I think you see the true Kelly,” says LuAnn. “She got a really bad rap last season. Because, you know, it’s hard to battle against Bethenny.” Right because surely Bethenny is to blame for her breakdown.
And when asked why she is always “condescending” and “vile” towards the cast (the words of Alex McCord), LuAnn admits she can be harsh at times before taking a shot at Alex… of course. “People do say that — and I guess I can come off that way — but it’s not ill meaning or anything like that,” says LuAnn who calls Alex a “weirdo.” “I guess it’s just a different way of looking at it, and I’m not going to apologize for the way I am.”
And finally, Jill Zarin took to her facebook page yesterday to gauge the opinion of her fans. And once again, the question had to do with Ramona Singer. Jill, who accuses Simon of cyber-bullying her on tonight’s episode, asked her fans, “Do you want to read a letter from Carol about Ramona? In ep. 1 you saw Carol and the “Cigar Incident.” I have been asked to make this letter public by Cindy. Should I?” A number of the votes said no, and she has since deleted the poll question from her facebook page.
Cindy also tweeted yesterday, “I never requested anything; if I wanted something posted, I would post it.” Perhaps this is the reason Jill took down the poll. Some people things never change.
Also, Ramona posted a photo of herself yesterday with her daughter Avery as a baby. That photo is below!
