Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino is headed to Las Vegas to host “Chippendales the Show,” and he’s planning to bring his frequent companion, mom Paula Guadagnino, with him.

“My mom loves Vegas. I do want to bring her out, maybe not to see the show?” Vinny tells Yahoo Entertainment. “Like, I want to cover her eyes or something at some of the parts, but I don’t know if I want to share these big, jacked guys with my mom. That doesn’t seem right.”

Vinny himself will be stripping down during parts of the show, which he’s scheduled to host from April 26 through May 26. It’s a gig he’s prepared for with his so-called “Keto Guido” diet, but he said that people have been sending him the famous Saturday Night Live sketch in which the late Chris Farley plays an out-of-shape Chippendales dancer about “five times a day.”

Of course, Vinny will continue to star on MTV’s Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D and Vinny, his latest foray into reality TV. It’s the latest spin-off of Jersey Shore, where he met his roommates for that first summer in Seaside, N.J., including Pauly D (real name Paul DelVecchio). Vinny has grown especially close to him.

“Yeah, we have a chemistry that’s, like, unbreakable, we’re like brothers,” Vinny said. “You couldn’t even, like, write that if you tried.”
