Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino has said that the Jersey Shore cast are distraught over the departure of Vinny Guadagnino.
Vinny confessed to his co-stars that he has been suffering with anxiety and exhaustion.
“I know [best friend Pauly D] was genuinely upset. We were all upset, but Pauly took it to heart, I know that for a fact,” The Situation told MTV.
“We almost had a blow-up when he left. You just expect him to be there; you don’t realise what you got till it’s gone, I’ll tell you that.”
Meanwhile, JWoww said: “It hit home for a lot of us because we all had to kind of face our emotions.
“Because Vinny’s the person that’s always our voice of reasoning and [now he] is saying, ‘I can’t take it anymore’.
“This is a family, when you have a brother or sister leave, it’s heartbreaking, it’s sad. You really do feel like something is missing in the house.”
