One of the main story lines from this season will be how Snooki’s pregnancy not only affects the first-time mom, who gave birth to son Lorenzo Dominic LaValle last month, but also her relationship with her housemates.
MTV News recently caught up with “Jersey Shore” star Vinny Guadagnino, who told us he was apprehensive about living with someone who is pregnant, but was ultimately surprised at how well Snooki handled it.
“I didn’t know what it was like to live with a pregnant woman, so I didn’t know if every day you were waking up to someone screaming ‘Get me this, get me that,’ ” Vinny said. “My mom was like, ‘Vinny, you better be prepared to put her feet up every two seconds,’ but she was the best of all. It was just chill, calm, cool, healthy, changed her life. Why I like this season was because you could actually speak to her. … She was actually normal.”
Vinny admits that even though Snooki lived in a separate shore house, fans won’t notice too much of a difference in her behavior. “It was pretty much the same, because when she drank, she would pretty much sleep all day anyway,” Vinny laughed. “Nothing really changed. She had the same exact symptoms when she’s pregnant than when she was hung over, so nothing changed at all.”
Since Snooki left the Shore, everything has changed. She and fiancé Jionni LaValle are adjusting to life with their new son while getting ready for the second season of her spin-off “Snooki & JWoww,” but hopefully they can make some time for Uncle Vinny to meet the newest addition to “Jersey Shore.”
“I didn’t meet baby Lorenzo,” Vinny said. “I actually saw her two days before [she gave birth], and I was like, ‘When are you going to pop?’ and she was like ‘Any day now.’ She actually thought it was going to be two weeks from when I saw her, and two days later, she had him.”
The final season of “Jersey Shore” kicks off Thursday, October 4, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
