After days of reported drama between Vinny Guadagnino and his Jersey Shore housemates, he may have finally made up his mind on whether he’s staying in the Seaside Heights house.

Reports have surfaced that Guadagnino left the house late on Friday after a heated argument with one of his cast mates. Reportedly, he complained of feeling “burnt out” and returned home to Staten Island with no desire to return to shooting.

His departure follows news that the reality star left the house earlier this week complaining of homesickness. Sources have revealed that his cast mates were able to talk him back. This time around, sources say the crew have tired of his antics and won’t be trying to get him to return.

The Hollywood Reporter contacted Guadagnino’s manager, who didn’t return our request by press time. MTV did send us the following statement: "We don't comment on series while they are in production but viewers can be assured they will have answers when Season 5 premieres."

According to THR’s sources, the crew had very little free time between returning to the United States after shooting Season 4 in Italy before production began for Season 5 back in Seaside Heights.

Earlier this week, THR was the first to report that contrary to other reports, MTV had no plans to recast the stars.

Season 4 in Italy premieres on August 4.
