These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders." After a while, it's easy to forget that stars are real people. That's why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question and answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they've shared their guiltiest pleasures?
Vinny Guadagnino might be saying goodbye to "Jersey Shore," but he's saying hello to his own spinoff show. That's right -- Vinny's solo TV spot, "The Show With Vinny," will give the party boy a chance to leave behind "GTL" and embrace "another side of my personality that likes to act, do improv and host." He tells HuffPost, "It’s probably the biggest thing that’s happened in my life. I'm really excited." And Vinny was more than excited to take on our #nofilter challenge, revealing his guilty pleasure, dream job and DVR lineup.
