Can exes still be friends? Not according to Vinny Guadagnino’s ex-girlfriend, Elicea Shyann. The model took to Instagram to call out the Jersey Shore star and the series for “humiliation” following the Thursday, May 17, episode of Jersey Shore Family Vacation.
“Here’s some free promotion!!!! For the trash everyone loves to watch. I’m a real f—king person who wakes up DAILY to more and more bulls–t and heartache,” Elicea wrote on Saturday, in a now-deleted Instagram post. “Enjoy the f–king show that is my f–king life. Ppl wonder how ppl end up in the darkest places. Here’s your answer.” According to Us Weekly, she shared a video clip from the show’s latest episode along with her message.
Vinny and Elicea dated throughout the filming of Jersey Shore Family Vacation, but the reality star confirmed their split in early 2018. The couple officially ended things once production wrapped, which wasn’t too hard to believe considering Vinny crossed the line several times throughout the series — from touching a stripper to flirting with a bottle service girl. “Humiliation disrespect zero empathy lol it’s truly AMAZING,” Elicea continued. “Everyone lives for the drama watching good things go to s–t.” But before you grab your pitchfork, Vinny shared his side of the story on Twitter to put the cheating rumors to rest.
He first quoted an article about the cheating allegations and commented "fake news." Following that, he quoted a tweet from a user that said, "he never cheated" and sarcastically commented, “Dude don’t you know? Talking to bottle girls in a night club is cheating duh. Forget the guys who have side pieces, cheat on their wives, text, and f–k girls … you’re nice to [a] waitress you cheat.”
He continued his sarcastic Twitter rant, writing, “No no I’m a monster. I really shouldn’t have been secure in my relationship enough to go out, be nice to people, be fun and entertaining and still remain loyal. I gave compliments to bottle girls on tv so I’m the worst man alive! Get it right.”
He also clarified that "carrying a stripper 3 feet like a child, and telling our new waitress friends to hang out w/ our group again" isn't cheating. "We are drunk in clubs filming show havin fun," he explained. In the end, he admits he did things that made his girlfriend feel "uncomfortable," but says, "throwin the word cheating around is such click bait dishonesty."
Previously, Vinny spoke on the matter in an interview with ET. "I wasn't using the 'smoosh room' on the show 'cause I was in a relationship on the show," he shared. "[On the show] I do have someone I really care about, she's the girl that I was with, but currently, it didn't work out, so I'm single."
Earlier this year, Vinny also said that he and Elicea were having problems before filming. “We had a long-distance relationship," he said. "She’s from California, I’m from New York, which would already be impossible for somebody. So a lot of things just made us be like, ‘You know what, this can’t happen right now.’” Communicating with Elicea while filming was also difficult for logistical reasons. “You don’t talk to the person for a month because you don’t have a cell phone, you don’t have a TV, you don’t have communication,” he explained. “So you’re like calling them every other day, on the duck phone, you can’t even hear them.”
So, is there any chance these two will ever rekindle the flame? “Maybe down the line,” Vinny shared. “You know, I hope that the logistics work out some day so we can be [together.]” According to Elicea’s deleted Instagram posts, we don’t think she feels the same way.
