Get someone who talks about you the way Vinny Guadagnino talks about his Jersey Shore fam. In the midst of an ashtray throwing scandal and a prison sentence, the Keto Guido has only supportive things to say about his closest friends. Vinny exclusively opened up to Life & Style about how Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro are holding up during their latest drama.

“Mike is an inspirational person,” Vinny, 31, gushed about his longtime friend and co-star. It’s been a big few months for Mike, 36, as he faces an eight-month prison sentence for tax evasion. He got married to his college sweetheart, Lauren Sorrentino (formerly Pesce), honeymooned in Italy, and celebrated his third year of sobriety. Although he’s in a bit of a…situation…Vinny is right there to rally by his side.

As for Ronnie, 33, the Famously Single star has been in a lot of negative light as details about his tumultuous relationship with Jen Harley keep surfacing. Most recently, the two got into an altercation on New Year’s Eve after spending Christmas together with their 9-month-old daughter, Ariana Sky.

In the midst of the ongoing drama, Ronnie’s hasn’t been returning calls, according to Vinny. “I’ve reached out to him, but obviously, he’s going through stuff right now…So I’m watching with the world…I wish him the best and I’m here for him.”

As far as Ronnie and Jen’s sticky relationship, Vinny isn’t completely taking sides. “It takes two in a relationship so I don’t know who’s doing what…I’m not behind those closed doors. I’ve been in relationships and I’m not perfect, and I’ve been the bad guy, and I’ve been the good guy,” the reality star explained. “So I think the same thing happens in their relationship too, but obviously, I have a bias to Ronnie because he’s like my brother and I’m like supporting him the most.”

Through thick and thin, Vinny stands with his fellow Guidos.
