Vinny Guadagnino is the next Jersey Shore character to land his own show, this time in talk show form. The first cast member to score a non-reality opportunity, Guadagino's new show will allow him to interview guests inside his home and guests will also get to delight in meeting his one-of-a kind family like uncle Nino and his mother, Paula who famously cooks the Jersey Shore cast members large Italian feasts on the regular.
MTV released a statement, explaining their choice for choosing Vinny to have his own show. "Vinny's unique mix of humor, intelligence, curiosity and heart make him the perfect choice for this genre busting take on the interview format," said Chris Linn, MTV Executive Vice President of Programming and Head of Production. "As the lives of the 'Jersey Shore' cast evolve, we are excited to explore new ground while still delivering the laughs and surprises that fans have come to expect from the franchise."

Fam circle and Armin is sure to deliver a galvanizing performance.
Van Buuren made the official announcement at LAVO NYC while spinning for DJ Mag’s Top 100 Party. The crowd went wild further proving that this is truly going to be one hell of an epic NYE. Van Buuren needs
little introduction after being voted #1 DJ on DJ Mag’s Top 100 poll five times total including four years in a row from 2007-2010 and yet again in 2012.
Producing music for over 14-years, the Dutch trance sensation has been hosting his weekly radio show A State Of Trance (ASOT) since 2001, which has won ‘Best Mix Radio Show’ at the Miami Winter Music
Conference 5 years in a row which is broadcasted on a massive 40 FM stations as well as satellite and internet radio, with over 25 million listeners a week. His third solo album, "Imagine" soared the Dutch
album Top 100 chart to # 1, a first for a dance producer in the history of Dutch music to accomplish. Armin has headlined at major music festivals including Ultra, EDC New York, and toured across the
globe for his ASOT 500 shows and will embark on another ASOT 600 tour within the next year, with a stop in NYC as well!
Nothing short of a dedicated trance lover, van Buuren isn’t confined by a single genre, saying “What makes trance work so well is that it doesn’t stick to one style, and can incorporate electro, minimal, whatever it likes.”
Fans will be blown away by this momentous and phenomenal event to hit NYC in years and there's no better way to spend a New Year's Eve than amidst the progressive and trance sounds of Mr. Armin van Buuren.

Dazzling dress, sparkling stilettos, classic clutch; your New Year’s Eve outfit is the perfect opportunity to show off that body you’ve been working on all year! On the other hand, you may not be quite ready to commit to that inevitable “get fit” resolution until the New Year is official. Regardless, it’s time to flaunt your best assets. Here are some tips, tricks, and product suggestions to make sure your perfect look is just that.
Going sleeveless is a fabulous way to show off great, toned arms. A dress with straps that curve slightly inward will accentuate and reveal more shoulder. If you’re loving the one-shoulder look, seek out one that falls just below the shoulder blades to reveal that most definition of your upper back.
Don't settle for average when your New Year's can be stupendous. If you missed round 1 of our NYE round up, don't worry, you can check it out here. But we've got even more great party plans to share with you! For a more laid back New Year's check out the enticing specials below, including New Year's Day brunch. What could be better?
