'Jersey Shore' star Vinny Guadagnino's new show will spotlight family
He may have had some wild times with Snooki and the rest of the "Jersey Shore" clan, but it looks like Vinny Guadagnino's newest co-stars may be bringing things to a whole other level of crazy.
Guadagnino has managed to pull in some A-list guest stars for his upcoming reality/talk show, "The Show with Vinny," but it's obvious from this "super trailer" released recently by MTV that the true stars will be Guadagnino's relatives. They include his meatball-making mother, Paola, and loudmouth Uncle Nino -- both of whom made frequent guest appearances on "Jersey Shore."
“This is my crazy house with my crazy family,” Guadagnino says.
The guest stars, who will include everyone from actor Mark Wahlberg to rapper Lil Wayne and singer Ke$ha, will sit down with Guadagnino to dish on their careers and lives in general. However, unlike on other talk shows, these conversations won't take place in a stuffy television studio. Instead, the celebrities will knock on the door of the Guadagnino house in Staten Island, sit down at the family table and give the scoop, all while Vinny’s mother serves up her savory Italian dishes.
"This is the show where celebrities come to keep it real," Guadagnino says.
Uncle Nino seems to be in charge of bringing some of the zany antics viewers saw on “Jersey Shore” back to Staten Island. The trailer shows him stripping down to his skivvies and letting Ke$ha pour bucketfuls of glitter over him.
“This is normal!” Guadagnino assures us in the clip.
In one scene, actress Jenny McCarthy chats with Guadagnino's mother to get the inside scoop on how she's dealing with the "S-E-X" situation, now that her son is living under her roof. Paola -- who obviously didn't catch her son's bedroom antics while he was on "Shore" -- looks embarrassed and starts fanning herself, telling her son, "I'm getting warm!"
Guadagnino is the latest "Jersey Shore" cast member to get a spin-off show. His co-stars Jenny "JWOWW" Farley and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi have had a success with their spin-off, "Snooki & JWOWW," which was just renewed for a third season by MTV. Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio's spin-off, "The Pauly D Project," did not fare as well and was not been renewed for a second season.
"The Show with Vinnie” premieres May 2 at 10 p.m. on MTV.
