The MTV persona, 34, completely advised Us Weekly on Wednesday, March 9, that “dating has been slow” as he prepares for his Chippendales stint in Las Vegas. When requested about whether or not he would contemplate a romance with Pivarnick, 35, following her split from husband Chris Larangeira, the New York native put his foot down.
“I’m on the 18th floor of my hotel. I would rather jump off this balcony than ever entertain one of those [dating] rumors,” Vinny joked as followers proceed to take a position concerning the duo’s relationship. “I don’t know if people think that I’m, like, capping or I’m lying about this. Like, when I tell you there’s not an ounce of energy or anything in my body that has any kind of romantic attraction toward Angelina, I promise you. I do not.”
Angelina and Chris tied the knot in November 2019. Their wedding ceremony — which included a controversial toast from costars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Deena Nicole Cortese — was featured on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Throughout the spinoff, Angelina opened up about her less-than-ideal sex life along with her then-husband.
“It’s, like, we’ll fight and then whoever starts the fight won’t want to bang,” the Couples Therapy alum mentioned throughout a June 2021 episode, telling her castmates that intimacy was “nonexistent” for her since getting married. “So he don’t want to bang, I don’t want to bang, no one wants to bang.”
She continued on the time: “I’m not the most perfect wife ever. I yell at him, I’ll belittle him sometimes. I feel like we’re both wrong. But see how I’m admitting it to you? He won’t ever admit that he’s wrong.”
Us later confirmed that Angelina had filed for divorce in January 2021, however the case was finally dismissed. Though a supply completely revealed in September 2021 that the twosome had been “in a much better place,” they called it quits again the next January. Chris filed to finish the pair’s marriage, citing “irreconcilable differences” with “no reasonable prospect of reconciliation” in docs obtained by Us.
Before the estranged spouses break up for good, Snooki, 34, completely shared her hopes for Angelina’s future — with out Chris. “I feel like Angelina and Vinny are meant to be, and if she was single, they would definitely get together and have babies,” the Dancing With the Stars season 17 alum advised Us in June 2021. “I feel like [they are] soulmates. So I don’t know why they’re fighting it.”
At the time, the Chile native defined that Vinny “doesn’t want to settle down” and was enjoying the “bachelor life,” including, “I feel like eventually he’ll settle down and he’s like 50, but he’s not ready.”
On Wednesday, Vinny famous that his busy work schedule has made it more challenging to prioritize romance. “I’ve been, like, really working out to get in shape for this [Chippendales] show. And, like, when you work out, you can’t really go out, you know, like, I don’t want to drink and go get drinks and stay up till this time, you know?” he advised Us, including that he hasn’t been “actively” searching for The One proper now.
When it involves Angelina and Chris, the Double Shot at Love star doesn’t “really know what’s going on,” however he has read some “messy” details concerning the break up on-line. While he might not be enthusiastic about his costar, Vinny thinks she would possibly really feel in another way.
“She’d probably smash,” he teased. “You know, I’m a pretty good catch. So if I, like, wanted to, and I was like, ‘Yo Angelina, like, I really liked you.’ I mean … she wouldn’t say no, you know, but I don’t think she’s actively trying to get with me either.”
For now, the fact star is specializing in his Vegas journey. Vinny shall be performing with the world-famous Chippendales for six weeks from March 11 to April 10, coinciding with the manufacturing’s twentieth anniversary at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.
“I’m not as nervous as I was the first time I did it. … We added some more dancing and the show itself, like, I feel like the production quality went up,” he hinted. “I’m jumping into more things, and I don’t wanna give it away, but you definitely see some cool stuff. … I’m always up for the challenge.”
