With the final season of Jersey Shore completed, the cast has more time to hit up events and work on their passion projects and side businesses. Last night Vinny Guadagnino hit up the season premiere party for Portlandia and took some time to dish with Tom Murro.
Vinny shared that he's been keeping himself busy with his upcoming spinoff show. He tells Tom, "I have my spinoff show taping, it's going well.''
Vinny also had some kind words for his co-star, Snooki. The cast members have all been excited to see the changes in her lifestyle and are anxious to babysit for their new nephew. Vinny calls new mom Snooki a "saint". When asked how his pint-sized co-star is doing, he replied ''She's a saint, she's a completely different person now, she's an amazing mother! She's all about the baby!''
I am going to have to make some room on my DVR once Jersey Shore goes off the air because my favorite GTL-ing guido will be getting his own show. While the fist-pumping phenomenon has spawned spin-offs for Snooki and JWoww, as well as DJ Pauly D, this one is going to be a different format and star the lovable, eyebrow raising Vinny Guadagnino.
The new series, called The Show with Vinny, has been greenlighted by MTV and will be a talk show/reality show hybrid. It will be set in the Guadagnino's Staten Island home and feature some of Vin's more colorful relatives while Vinny interviews celebrities in his den.
On Wednesday the reality TV star, aka Jenni Farley, turned an Ab Cuts promotional appearance at a GNC store in NYC into a canned good drive for the victims of Superstorm Sandy.
We all made fun and recoiled at these Shore party animals when they burst onto the scene three years ago, but they are showing their true colors as they step up to help this area of Jersey that made them famous! Be sure to tune in on Thursday night for the MTV special!

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, MTV and the cast of Jersey Shore are teaming up to raise money for Seaside Heights. Architecture for Humanity, a non-profit organization that specializes in rebuilding communities after natural disasters, will work with MTV to help "repair and revitalize" Seaside Heights.
MTVannounced the one-hour fundraising event yesterday. Restore the Shore will air live on Thursday, November 15 at 11:00 p.m. EST. The special will feature the Jersey Shore cast, Sammi, Snooki,Pauly, Vinny, Jenni, Mike, Ronnie, and Deena, as well as other (to be announced) celebrities. Viewers will be able to donate online or via text.
MTV: "The fundraiser will focus primarily on providing relief to Seaside Heights – the town and its residents have been nothing but gracious over the years, and now it's time to return their kindness and generosity."
My prayers are still going out to those affected by Hurricane Sandy, and as more photos of the devastation are posted on the Internet, I am truly saddened that so many millions of people have had to experience such destruction. Words can't adequately express how my heart goes out to those struggling to rebuild their homes and towns.
As you all know, Seaside Heights, New Jersey was one of the areas hit hardest by the super storm. The Shore Store, the boardwalk, and a plethora of sketchy dance clubs have been the stage for everyone's favorite guidos and guidettes for several seasons on MTV's Jersey Shore. Now the boardwalk is destroyed and parts of the iconic vacation town are underwater. There are some photos of Seaside after Sandy below.
President Obama has declared both New Jersey and New York disaster areas, and Governor Christie of New Jersey has called the damage to his home state "unfathomable."
Well, it's Hurricane Sandy out there. I've already hunkered down with chicken wing dip and a vain hope that I won't lose power or internet while the winds howl wildly. And I'm not the only one, plenty of reality stars are stranded on the east coast trying to brave the hurricane.
We hope everyone is safe and in a comfortable place to ride out the storm!
