Another reason to fist-pump! Vinny Guadagnino, aka the "sensitive guy" on MTV's now-defunct "Jersey Shore," will be getting his own talk show to highlight food, family and celebrities.
The MTV show, appropriately titled "The Show With Vinny," will reportedly be a hybrid reality/talk show that will invite various celebrities to Vinny's home in Staten Island to chat with him and his family, as well as showcase what the typical Italian-American experience is like.
"Vinny's unique mix of humor, intelligence, curiosity and heart make him the perfect choice for this genre busting take on the interview format," said MTV executive, Chris Linn.
"As the lives of the 'Jersey Shore' cast evolve, we are excited to explore new ground while still delivering the laughs and surprises that fans have come to expect from the franchise."
The series is just the latest "Jersey Shore" spin-off, after MTV greenlit a second season of former "Shore" castmates Snooki and JWoww's reality show, as well as Pauly D's "The Pauly D Project."
More immediately, Vinny and the rest of his "Jersey Shore" castmates will appear together Thursday in a "Restore the Shore" telethon to raise money for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. The storm ravaged their old stomping grounds of Seaside Heights.
