Brian Prahl for In Touch
Vinny Guadagnino can have his pick of girls at the Jersey shore, but the self-proclaimed mama’s boy says Mrs. Right will have some pretty big shoes to fill.
“I do get a lot of love, and girls do approach me, but I’m looking for quality over quantity,” Vinny tells In Touch. "My mom sets the bar high. When I find a girl to settle down with, I hope she knows how to cook!”
In the new issue of In Touch— on newsstands now— the host of MTV’s The Show With Vinny (airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on MTV) talks dating and why he’s not the “a--hole” he was made out to be on Jersey Shore.
"I’m actually a sensitive person more than I’m an a--hole. And I’m more than just a reality star,” the MTV star says. “Having this talk show requires me to study, do research, learn how to interview, be engaged, improvise a little bit and be witty and smart.”
Vinny's back in the dating pool after ending a year-long relationship, and though he still lives at home with his mom, Paola, he’s made sure it won’t interfere with entertaining the ladies and "smush" time.
“I just bought a new house for my family. But I have a bachelor pad, which is bigger than most people’s houses, downstairs for myself,” Vinny explains. “It’s my own section, so nobody says anything. If I wanted to introduce a girl to my mom, though, I would."
But Vinny assures that it won't happen anytime soon. "I’m not trying to settle down right now. I’m only 25."
