Lil Wayne has been through a lot this week, but his appearance on MTV’s latest reality show/talk show revealed some big news from the Young Money honcho. As the first guest of Jersey Shore cast member Vinny Guadagnino’s mash-up show, Weezy said he’s engaged to his girlfriend, Dhea Sodano.
The Show With Vinny premiered last night on MTV, and Vinny made no secret of his fandom of the New Orleans rapper by calling him his idol. While explaining who the superstar was to his mother, Vinny called Wayne “his Tony Bennett” to hammer home the point. At Vinny’s Staten Island home, the drama of Wayne’s visit sets the stage. Wayne and Vinny’s mother hit it off, however, especially after he dropped the big news.
“My fiancée’s Italian,” said Wayne shortly after entering the doors with the camera crew, this after being asked if he’s had Italian food before. Vinny’s mother feeds Wayne and crew a bevy of Italian dishes and talks a bit about New Orleans. An especially random moment is hearing Lil Wayne try to explain what gumbo is to Vinny’s mother.
Other highlights include Wayne breaking down his favorite tattoos, his Trukfit clothing line, and how he got into skateboarding.
Watch the full clip of “The Show With Vinny” below. Look out for Vinny’s crazy Uncle Nino, who really hits it off with Wayne.
