A national crisis has been averted: As of this past weekend, Vinny Guadagnino is back in the Jersey Shore house.

What prompted his return to Seaside after such a dramatic exit, following a mysterious "blow-out" with one of the cast members? According to TMZ, he had dinner with the remaining cast members, and they attempted to persuade him back to the house. Clearly things went well, as just the next day he was spotted in Seaside, GTL-ing with the best of them.
