Is Vinny done with 'Jersey Shore'?

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.

And although MTV has said there are no plans to recast the series as of yet, Spencer Pratt - remember "The Hills"? - is ready to take Vin's place.

"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.

    Poor Vinny, he's giving up all the fame and glory! I wonder if MTV is going to sue him for breach of contract? What about compensation from his endorsements, style of aviator sunglasses, and appearance fees??

    I thought this was CNN? Not Star Magazine. MTV has singlehandedly f-ed up this coming generation of teens and young adults with the garbage they display on their network. What happened to morals and values? Its pretty hard to look dignified when your stumbling drunk home with a random stranger for a meaningless f***. And if Mtv wants to preach at kids after Teen Mom about abstinence, why do you air Skins? Pathetic pulpy trash. Shame on you Mtv and jersey shore.

    As if NJ didn't already have a terrible reputation as a polluted, crime-infested urban wasteland populated by drug-addicts and felons, the cast of this reality show have created the impression that we New Jerseans are intolerant simpletons practicing our follies as if they weren't as irresponsible to ourselves and our environment as they clearly are.

    As if this guy wasn't already a giant clown, but this is a grown man who gets homesick when his parents are literally 30 miles away? C'mon guy, tighten up and cut the chord. Seriously, from what I see, this guy has absolutely zero marketable skills other than being one of these train wrecks that we all love to he really needs to bleed this thing dry for as long as he possibly can. Maybe nobody told him that when this thing will he.

      What a moron. Last I heard these tards were getting like $100k an episode. I'd wear too-small Ed Hardy tees and bang Snooki once in a while for that kind of coin any day. What's he gonna do, go serve gelato for minimum wage. He will realize where the cash cow is soon enough and come running back.
