'Jersey Shore' Recap: Ciao Vinny!
Thursday, January 12, 2012
Vinny's had enough of his fellow guidos and guidettes as he heads home this week. I can't say
I blame him, I mean it has to be hard being the youngest AND the most normal in the house.
Regardless, it's sad to see Vinny go, and hopefully he will return to the Jersey house later in the
season! Meanwhile, his roommates get back into their routine on the shore and kick it off with a
full episode of drinking and bad decisions. (Shocking, right?)
Cash for Gold
Pauly has it rough this week when first he "burns his face off" after excessively tanning, then
gets his treasured gold chain stolen by his one-night stand. First of all, don't peel your burnt
skin off then go tanning immediately after. I feel as though this is common sense - especially
for someone who makes a career out of tanning. Secondly, do not expect to bring home some
random chick, send her home at 4am, and then be surprised that she might have stolen your
jewelry. Again, this is common sense. Good thing she's a bit of a stalker and returned the next
morning with the chain around her neck and a lame excuse that she "forgot" to give it back. At
least she can look back at this one day and say she is proud of herself.
Who Needs Self-Respect?
Snooki decides to forgo her "Jionni" underwear in fear she might be tempted to flash fellow
club-goers, but then proceeds to get belligerently drunk and fall all over herself. At least she goes
home with Jionni this time and it doesn't end up in some overly dramatic drunken fight. Just
when hope is almost lost for Mike, he shows his classy side when he picks up the girl standing
closest to the exit, and then acts all cocky about bringing a girl home. Mike, she was just as
desperate as you, and has even less dignity.
The End of a Bromance
You can't help but get a little choked up about Vinny's departure, especially when Pauly
solemnly helps him pack his bags. What will Pauly do without his wingman? Those two are
the backbone and humor of the show! I can only hope that this match made in heaven will be
reunited once again after Vinny gets a dose of home. I do feel if this were Mike leaving, they'd
be throwing a party. Maybe he will step it up and stop being such a tool -- but I doubt it.
Next week we will get a glimpse into Vinny's life back at home, Snooki and Deena look as
though they should be picked up for public intoxication and the roommates burn Mike when they
only celebrate Pauly's birthday. What do you think? Are you sad to see Vinny go? How do you
think Pauly will handle his departure? Leave your comments and tune in Thursday's on MTV at
10, then come back to BuddyTV for your weekly recap!
