Pauly D's Jersey Shore spin-off, The Pauly D Project, premieres tonight, March 29. While the focus of the show is supposed to be on Pauly's real life and his non-Jersey Shore family and friends, we can't be the only ones hoping that Pauly D's hetero lifemate Vinny makes an appearance. We can't really imagine Pauly sans the epic bromance. After all, it's the most functional relationship to come out of Jersey Shore.

Well, according to New Jersey paper The Star-Ledger, we needn't worry.

The newspaper recently interviewed Pauly D about the new show, and apparently he said that he and Vinny talk every day when they aren't filming Jersey Shore. Say it with us now: Aww.

According to The Star-Ledger, Vinny did visit his BFF during the filming of The Pauly D Project, and it's hard to imagine that the MTV Powers That Be wouldn't at least include a scene or two with Pauly's Jersey co-star.

Maybe they'll pull an epic prank on Pauly's friends. You know, for old time's sake.

The Pauly D Project airs Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
