Jersey Shore cast member Vinny Guadagnino has been awfully busy lately working on his new MTV series, The Show With Vinny. But according to Vinny, it's his mom Paola who was made for reality TV -- even if she cares more about cooking than becoming a star!
"She is a complete natural in front of the camera," he exclusively tells us. "It's amazing. I'm the one who gets nervous."
The Show With Vinny takes place in Vinny's parents' Staten Island home, where he spends his days interviewing big name celebrities like Victoria Justice and Lil' Wayne. The only kicker? His mom is always interrupting things to offer his guests food or tell them hilarious stories about Vinny!
When Lil' Wayne visited the Guadagnino house, Paola insisted he take a doggy bag of food to go -- talk about embarrassing!
Plus, she always needs to give final approval of his outfits.
So does Vinny get embarrassed when his mom butts into his interviews? Well, duh!
"Every episode she embarrasses me more than the last," Vinny says. "Picture like when you go to meet your boyfriend's family, or you have a [friend] come over to your house, and one of [your parents] starts with the old bathtub photos. My show is like that, except broadcasted to the world. So I'm always sitting there shaking my head while my mom is embarrassing me."
Poor Vinny -- and the show is only two episodes in! Hey, as long as it's not our mom embarrassing us, it's fine right?
We're glad Vinny is such a good sport about it all. He's truly a mama's boy at heart!
