'Jersey Shore' Star Vinny Moves Back Into MTV House

And he's back.

'Jersey Shore' star Vinny Guadagnino is apparently back in the MTV house at the shore after reportedly quitting the show last week.

Though he said he was done with the show for good, Guadagnino met up with his 'Jersey Shore' pals for dinner and drinks Saturday night, and they seemed to have persuaded him to finish out his stint on the fifth season of the MTV reality show, TMZ reports.

The fist-pumping reality star left the show last week, with rumors popping up that he was homesick following the 'Jersey Shore' crew's trip to Italy earlier this spring to film Season 4.

Guadagnino reportedly left New Jersey and hightailed it back home to Staten Island, New York for some R&R.

But now that he's back on board at the shore, we can only wonder if it was all just a stunt for the cameras. We guess we'll have to wait and see how it all pans out on MTV later this year.
