When the world first learned that Jersey Shore would be returning to MTV, there were concerns that with the cast approaching middle-age, there wouldn't be enough drama in their lives to sustain an entire season of television.
Instead, the opposite has proven true, and it's turned out that there's more chaos and insanity in the guidos' lives than could ever be contained in a single reality show.
First, the relationship between Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley caused quite a stir on numerous occasions.
Many assumed that the situation had come to a head when Jen dragged Ronnie with her car back in June of 2018, but amazingly, these two are still trying to make their relationship work.
The same can't be said of Jenni Farley and Roger Mathews.
Jenni filed for divorce from Roger back in September but the situation has only gotten uglier in the months since.
Mathews has begged Jenni to take him back in public and increasingly aggressive ways.
Last month, Farley filed for a restraining order against her ex after an altercation at their home became violent.
Like we said, there's been no shortage of drama for the Seaside Six these days.
And we haven't even mentioned Mike Sorrentino's prison sentence, which is scheduled to begin next week.
But through it all, Vinny Guadagnino has mostly managed to keep his nose clean and his diet keto.
"I just want him to know I am here for him," the 30-year-old shares. "We are here for him as a safety net."
As for Farley, Vinny says he's unconcerned about her emotional state, as he's never met someone who's cooler under pressure.
"She's like the exact example to follow when you have to go through something like that publicly, because she's not impulsive; she doesn't react on emotions, she's like smart," Guadagnino claims.
Vinny says Jenni's level-headed demeanor is mostly a result of the fact that she "wants the best for her children."
As for his own transition into adulthood, Vinny says his priorities have changed considerably since he turned 30 last year.
While Vinny acknowledges his decade or so of hard-partying and promiscuity -- saying he "had to go through that phase" -- he claims those days are far behind him.
These days, Vinny says his primary goals are to "get more sleep and just add on to my new healthy lifestyle."
We're sure he'd also like to keep the Jersey Shore revival gravy train rolling.
Of course, that might have to wait until The Sitch is finished serving his time.
The drama never stops with this bunch!
We suppose it's a gift and a curse, as very few reality casts have kept the audience engaged for this long.
