Jersey Shore went off the air in 2012, but that didn't mean the friendships have to end.

E! News caught up with Vinny Guadagnino, who has recently partnered with Malibu for their Malibro campaign, and talked to him all about life after the show and how he and his reality TV show friends manage to keep in touch. It goes without saying that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley are still BFFs, but Vinny also makes sure to reach out to his MTV friends.

"I'm not in touch with everybody," he confessed, adding, "Some people were closer than others. I went to Jenni's wedding and I saw everybody over there."

Vinny said that he still sees DJ Pauly D, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola "all the time" but it's harder to see others because they live on opposite coasts. Fortunately JWoww's wedding to Roger Mathews served as a pretty big reunion.

"Jenni's wedding was great. She was pregnant so she didn't really party too hard so, it was a little bit of a mellower wedding," he dished. "It was good seeing everybody."

JWoww and Roger tied the knot in October 2015 after a three-year engagement. Their daughter Meilani, who was 15 months old at the time, served as an adorable flower girl. Roger proposed to his now-wife in October 2012 after about two years of dating.

Even though the wedding was on the mellow side, Vinny assured us he and the rest of the Jersey Shore cast really did get wild on the MTV show.


"All the craziest things that ever happened, trust me they put it on camera," he said. "They didn't hide those things...but for me it was always just like people didn't know what it made me feel to go to Italy and to meet my family from Sicily for the first time."

These days, Vinny is still down to party, and is teaming up with Malibu, asking guys to unleash their inner "Malibro" as part of their new movement. 

"Guys should no longer feel stigmatized to drink fruity cocktails. I love the Shore, I love pool parties, and being in the sun, and I like fruity cocktails," Vinny said of the movement. "I don't think that guys should be embarrassed to have fruity cocktails. They taste good, they're effective, you're having a good time. I like being outdoors, it brings me to life when I'm partying and there's nothing like the Malibu cocktails to do it, and that's what being a Malibro is all about...sometimes when guys they think their masculinity foes down a little bit, but I'm saying it's the opposite; you're more of a bro now!"
