When Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino signed up to host his own talk show with his mother Paola, one thing he didn't expect was that she'd reveal his biggest secret.
"The most embarrassing thing that my mom has ever said about me was that I wasn't circumcised," Guadagnino, 25, tells PEOPLE. "That trumps everything! She said that when Jenny McCarthy came to do the show. I ran out of the room and I was like, 'No, no!'"

Gym, tan, laundry ... and tears.
Three years, six seasons and two spin-offs after Jersey Shore's December 2009 premiere, the pop culture phenomenon that extended Ed Hardy's shelf life and gave the importance of hair gel an entirely new meaning is bidding adieu to TV.

It's pizza time!
On Wednesday night, Jersey Shore's Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio and Vinny Guadagnino stopped into Artichoke Basille's Pizzeria & Bar in New York City for a late night snack.
"They came in and had pizza and drinks," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "They were very friendly and hanging out with other customers."
"Vinny and Melanie Iglesias were sitting together for most of the time. She kept trying to get the group to leave but Pauly D was holding them back, socializing with the crowd, having a blast!" the source adds.

Make no mistake – now that she's pregnant and engaged, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's partying days are on hold as she prepares to become a mother, according to her Jersey Shore castmate, Vinny Guadagnino.
“She’ll be a great mom. She’s already drastically changed her life," Guadagnino told PEOPLE at Saturday's 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York. "I think this is a good wakeup call, so I think she’ll be cool."
He also revealed he was surprised by the news she's expecting.
“I had no idea. Actually people would call me, like, 'Is the show still gonna work?'…And I was like, 'What are you talking about, she’s not pregnant.' And then all of the sudden, that whole thing came out and I was like, Oh my God.”

Get ready for gym, tan, maternity clothes on Jersey Shore.
Following speculation about whether or not the show would be renewed for a sixth season, all seven cast mates – including a pregnant Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi – are set to return to Seaside Heights, N.J., during this summer to begin filming, according to a press release from MTV.
"The house dynamic is headed into unchartered territory as their lives outside of the 'Shore' take off in exciting new directions," the network says.
"While things will definitely be a little different this time when they hit the boardwalk, their trademark hilarity and family dysfunction will remain the same."

Jersey Shore's Vinny Guadagnino was in the house at Beacher's Madhouse at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel – and he caught the show while perched atop a banquette. The reality star sipped cocktails and chatted with a few guys at his table but was otherwise fairly reserved – though he did perk up at the "flying little person" character in the burlesque show.
