Is it ever a good idea to hook up with a roommate?
Not according to Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, who admits she regrets her close encounter with her Jersey Shore costar Vinny Guadagnino in Miami.
“I kind of wish me and Vinny didn’t try and have sex, because it was just drama this whole season,” she said Thursday on Sirius radio’s The Morning Mash Up!. “And I don’t know, it was just awkward between us and then I felt stupid because, you’ll see, it’s just embarrassing.”
Vinny, she guessed, might also wish it had never happened.
“I think he would say that because I kind of got feelings,” she said. “But for him, he’d be like, ‘No, it’s another girl.’ ”
But all is well that ends well. While Vinny is bringing home other women on the current season of Shore, Snooki has a man to call her own.
“I’m so glad that I met him because he’s so down to Earth,” she says of her camera-shy boyfriend Jionni LaValle. “I met his family, they’re great.”
His lack of interest in the spotlight is perfect for Snooki, she says, because she can’t trust other men.
“I don’t know if they’re here for me, or … because they want to be on the show.”
