Vinny dated his fellow cast Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi around 2010 and broke up a year later. Likewise, in 2010, when the Jersey Shore star was filming the second season of the reality show, he shared his romance with the brunette beauty Ramona Nitu. He first met Ramona at a nightclub in South Beach where she was a dancer. The last time we saw the couple spark romance was during the wrap of the season. 

Similarly, Vinny was also linked with Angelina Pivarnick. The two always had a flirtatious relationship, but the two haven't confirmed that they were involved in a romantic relationship. As for now, Pivarnick is married to Chris Larangeira.

Further, when the Brooklyn native appeared on MTV's dating show, Double Shot at Love, she and Vin had an instant connection with Alysse Joyner. He even chose Joyner as his girlfriend in the final episode. But their relationship didn't last long as the distance became a hindrance for the couple.

Breakup With Girlfriend Melanie

Vinny and his ex-girlfriend Melanie Iglesias had a romantic relationship, which all started on their reality TV show Jersey Shore in 2011. The couple spent a romantic time together and did everything that a couple does, but this could not save their relationship.

After a year of dating, their relationship ended on a hard note Twitter beef, to be exact.

Moreover, Melanie also claimed that they were never a couple and were only friends. They had officially broken up in 2014, and the main reason for their break up is considered to be Melanie's Twitter rant and Vinny cheating on her.

Failed Relationship With Elicea Shyann

Following his short-lived romance with Melanie, Vinny took a break from dating and began focusing on his career.

In the spring of 2018, he started dating an Instagram model Elicea Shyann. During his relationship with his former girlfriend Elicea, Vinny remained faithful during the Jersey Shore Family Vacation.
