Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino admits Snooki's pregnancy is not something he saw coming ... and he was shocked ... but hey, he's not about to bash the girl.
“I didn’t expect it. But, obviously, I’m not going to hate. This is real-life stuff,” he said.
Vinny, who is busy promoting his new book, Control The Crazy: My Plan to Stop Stressing, Avoid Drama and Maintain Inner Cool, also praised his 24-year-old roommate’s “super-human” ability to anything ... or anyone. Just kidding.
In all honestly, she thinks Snooki will be a great mom.
“She can do extraordinary things,” he said. “In a partying way, she can drink more than anyone I’ve ever met; she can stay up for longer periods of time. She’s super-human. If she applies that to her parenting, she’ll actually be a good mom.”
“She’s like a human I’ve never encountered before,” he added.
That's high praise ... mostly. We think.
Meanwhile, Vinny is also opening up about his battle with chronic anxiety and depression, which caused him to briefly leave Jersey Shore during Season 5.“I have generalized anxiety disorder,” he told Celebuzz. “It can be a panic attack. But what really bothers me, like you saw on the TV show, is, it can put me in a funk. It kind of disconnects me from everything around me."
"It’s just like a general depressed feeling.”
Exacerbating those feelings, Vinny Guadagnino says, was the Jersey Shore house’s party atmosphere, which he defends as more stressful than one thinks.
“People who might say, ‘Oh, all you do is party and have fun; how can that make you anxious?’ don’t get it,” he said. “We’re kind of stuck in a little bubble."
"You don’t want to be stuck when you have anxiety. You want to have your friends and family around. You don’t want to be on camera 24 hours a day.”
“You start to feel inadequate,” he continued. “Everybody else is having a good time and you’re like, ‘Damn. What’s wrong with me?’ It makes it worse."
"I made it through four seasons fine, so I was more upset with myself.”
Vin, of course, wasn’t the only cast member to battle personal issues. The Situation was in rehab for prescription drugs - which Vin never saw coming.
“He was just being Mike,” he said. “I had no idea - honestly. That’s his personality. I never say anything bad about him.”
