Attention, “Shore” fans – one of your beloved “T-shirt time”-ers just may have departed the “Jersey Shore” for good.
Vinny Guadagnino has launched rounds of reports that he’s decided he’s done with the MTV reality show. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Vinny reportedly had some words with an unnamed cast member on Friday and decided to pack his bags and head home to Staten Island.
Reports suggest he was feeling “burnt out” and has no intention of stepping in front of “Shore’s” cameras again. Earlier that week he reportedly left the Seaside Heights house because he was feeling homesick, but his castmates supposedly were able to talk him into staying.
MTV isn’t commenting, other than to say that “We don't comment on series while they are in production but viewers can be assured they will have answers when Season 5 premieres," according to THR.
"I have my bag of sequined shirts and self-tanner packed ready to go! @VINNYGUADAGNINO needs a break...Put me back in the game coach!," he tweeted to MTV on Monday. "First day in the Shore house I would lay down the law! Target 1 @Sn00ki Target 2 @ItsTheSituation Target 3 @MTVRonnie all before lunch!"
But for now we have season 4 of “Jersey Shore” in Italy to contend with, which will premiere August 4.
