Things got cray on “Jersey Shore,” but dealing with anxiety is a serious issue. Vinny Guadagnino knows that anxiety can really suck, and he spoke to Joy Behar about his self-help book, “Control the Crazy: My Plan to Stop Stressing, Avoid Drama, and Maintain Inner Cool.”
First Joy Tweeted about the interview, and then Vinny Tweeted back:
Vinny’s book originally came out in hardcover last year, and he’s excited about the paperback release. Talking on “Joy Behar: Say Anything!” he admitted that being on “Jersey Shore” (which meant cameras on him 24/7) caused his anxieties levels to go up and made him feel closed in.
“I want to be healthy first,” Vinny said about keeping his emotional health as a priority. So he left the Jersey Shore house to take care of himself and now helps others by talking about anxiety disorders and health. Aww, we love seeing philanthropists in the MTV fam!
