Following in the footsteps of his Jersey Shore costars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino is officially a reality star-turned-author. 

The V of “MVP” announced today via Entertainment Weekly that he has been working on a new self-help book titled Control the Crazy: My Plan to Stop Stressing, Avoid Drama and Maintain Your Inner Cool. The book is said to track the Shore star’s own personal journey and struggle with anxiety disorder. The publication is set to be released April 12, and the Shore star described his “prescriptive memoir,” telling EW:

 “I’ve always wanted to help people that have been through the same thing I have or been through anything hard in their lives. It helps me when I help people. … It wasn’t until I realized when I was going to have this moment when I left and everyone would actually see what I’m going through. Once it was put in the spotlight I said, ‘You know what? Now’s a great opportunity.’”

Vinny is referring to the first two episodes of season five of Jersey Shore when he chose to leave the house, only to later return. 

He opened about his struggle with anxiety disorder, adding, “I would say it started happening in high school. I was a happy kid, and I still am. My disorder really isn’t that bad. I just do have anxiety, but it manifested strongest in high school, and then it just took different forms throughout the rest of my life up until what people just saw [on Jersey Shore].”
