Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star Angelina Pivarnick introduced viewers to her new boyfriend, Vinny Tortorella, in 2023. At the time, the two were already engaged after Vinny popped the question while filming the MTV show in November 2022. Who is Angelina’s fiancé?

When Did Angelina Pivarnick and Vinny Tortorella Start Dating?

Angelina revealed that she was dating someone who also happened to be named Vinny – alluding to costar Vinny Guadagnino – during a season 5 episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, which aired in September 2022. The couple met when Vinny 2.0 slid into Angelina’s Instagram DMs after her split from Chris Larangeira at the beginning of 2022 (the pair’s divorce was finalized that July).

The pair made their red carpet debut at the Real Housewives of New Jersey premiere in February 2023. Later that month, a fan account named @mtv_reality_teaa posted a photo via Instagram of the pair at a wedding.

However, it wasn’t until a season 6 episode in March 2023 that viewers got to meet Vinny.

“We’re getting a little bit more serious. Things have been heating up between us and we’re definitely moving along in our relationship,” Angelina said in the episode after Vinny kissed her and surprised her with roses. “He’s from Staten Island and yes his name is Vinny. What are the f–king odds of that?”

In a separate scene, she added, “This is something I need at this point in my life. I didn’t feel loved in my last relationship. I would literally wear lingerie walking around the house half-naked and he wouldn’t even look at me. Going into a relationship where the guy likes to be intimate, tells you how beautiful you are – I mean, Vin can’t get his hands off me. It’s a different world and it feels so good to be loved.”

Are Angelina Pivarnick and Vinny Tortorella Engaged?

Vinny and Angelina got engaged in November 2022. The proposal aired on the April 27, 2023, episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.

The Staten Island native popped the question during his first trip with Angelina and her castmates. The group was in New Orleans and Vinny told producers of his plan.

“[It’s] not a little something,” Vinny said. “It’s a big thing that I’ve been thinking about doing.”

After explaining that he was “planning” a surprise for Angelina, he added, “I wanted to get engaged … It’s going to be tonight.”

He got down on one knee and asked Angelina to marry him while the group was out to dinner. She happily said yes.

In August 2023, Angelina called the cops on Vinny after an alleged domestic violence incident. However, once authorities arrived, she decided not to press charges. Vinny’s lawyer confirmed that the two were still engaged and living together after the incident.

The pair’s troubles continued, though, as Angelina exclusively told In Touch in December 2023 that she and Vinny were “fighting a lot,” hinting that they were not in a good place.

What is Vinny Tortorella’s Job?

Vinny 2.0 is a model who holds an accounting degree from Wagner College. He is not active on social media.

How Old is Vinny Tortorella?

When Angelina first talked about Vinny with her castmates she joked that he was 19. However, she has since clarified her comments.

“People think he’s a 19 year old that lives in my garage and I’m like…what!?” Angelina told TooFab in January 2023. “Where did that come from? Did you see that episode where I said he was 19? He’s not 19. He’s in his 30s.”
