Jersey Shore comes to an end next week (the last episode is on December 20), and while we're busy sitting here mourning the loss of a reality phenomenon, the castmates are looking towards their futures.

In a recent interview with Zap2it, Vinny opened up about what he wants to do next — and what he won't miss about the show.

Although he called being on the show "a cool life experience," he admitted that he "won't miss being away from [his] family." He explained that he has "a huge family," which he calls his "life." We can understand why being away from the fam was hard for him!

As for his future, Vinny confirms that his focus is going to be on pursuing a career in entertainment, because he "always wanted to be an actor on TV." And, of course, The Show With Vinny is expected to debut in 2013!
