Most Jersey Shore relationships are complicated, but Pauly D and Vinny's bromance is a thing of simple beauty. They GTL together perfectly: Growing, Talking, and Learning. As many of you have heard by now, one half of Jersey Shore's power couple — Vinny — left the house for a few days during Season 5.  So how did Pauly take being abandoned by his fist-pumping partner in crime?

Wetpaint Entertainment had a chance to chat with Pauly D at the Pacha Nightclub Halloween party, after he showed off his DJing skills on the hot spot’s float in the NYC Halloween Parade. Even though the sculpted hair god kept his cool, he admitted to us that Vinny's departure was hard to handle.

"I can't lie," he told us. "It really affected me. When [Vinny] left I was left in the house, I was like what am I going to do with myself? I would wake up and that kid wasn't there, so I had to get him back, you know what I'm saying?" Awww. We're looking forward to seeing their reunion once Vinny makes his heroic return to the shore, and into Pauly’s arms. We hope there are tears involved.

But don't worry. It's not all sad sob stories for Pauly D in Season 5. When asked to sum up the season, he was very succinct: "GTL!" Indeed, the cast was determined to get back into their old lifestyle, since, as we all saw, they kind of let it (and their orange glow) slip away in Italy.

And, with the lifestyle comes the girls. Our boys struck out in Italy, but back on the shore it was a different story. "We ran back to the shore, and we ran back to the girls, too," Pauly laughed.

Sounds like Season 5 means going back to the basics for Pauly D.
