Who Is Melanie Iglesias? 5 Things to Know About Vinny’s Girlfriend

Jersey Shore star Vinny is back on with girlfriend of three months, Guy Code star Melanie Iglesias. In case you missed their short-lived romance, here are five things to know about Vinny’s on-again, off-again flame.

1. She's a Brooklyn girl. According to her MTV bio, Melanie is a Brooklyn girl born and bred.

2. She has a diverse background. Melanie tweets that she is "mostly Puertorican and Italian," adding "there is a little Filipino in the mix."

3. She's really, really hot. It's no surprise that Melanie has been on the cover of Maxim and was their 2010 Hometown Hotties champion and part of their Maxim Hot 100 of 2011 list. Just look at her!

4. She wants to be an actress. Another thing she and Vinny have in common is their Hollywood dream. Vinny wants to be an actor, and Melanie's MTV bio notes that "Melanie is now up for lead roles in featured films, commercials and more."

5. She has a sense of humor. Her YouTube channel includes a video showing off her hidden talent (talking with her mouth closed), and another featuring her and a friend racing to see who can eat two cheeseburgers the fastest. Meanwhile, she tweeted that this epic video of Samuel L Jackson singing "Beez in the Trap" over and over is her "most favorite thing in whole world."
