Vinny Guadagnino bailed on the Jersey Shore house following an altercation with a fellow cast member last night, and reports say it may be for good.
Sources say Vinny bolted after the fight, saying he felt "burned out," and went back home to Staten Island. He is in Staten Island with family now.
Vinny threatened to leave a few days ago, after he complained of "being homesick."
The cast was able to talk him out of leaving ... temporarily.
As for what sparked his departure specifically, that's unclear.
Whatever issue he had with one of his co-stars must have been the nail in the coffin. Such blowups are becoming commonplace. In Italy, Ronnie pounded The Situation senseless, but he couldn't exactly drive home from Florence.
In season three, Sammi fled after an EPIC fight with Ron, only to reappear a few days later and instigate slightly less violent fights with Ron.
Will Vinny do the same? TMZ claims Vinny has "been a pain in the ass" and no one will beg him to return this time. Executive producer Sally Ann Salsano said, "We do not comment on the production of the show."
