At Vinny’s house in LA, his mother called while he was working out. She asked him if made any friends yet and whether it was time to come home. He told her that he liked it in LA, but that if being out on the West Coast kept him from seeing his family and friends then maybe it wasn’t where he wanted to be.
Vinny said in a confessional that every time he goes back to the East Coast that he feels like he doesn’t want to leave.

Back in New Jersey, Deena and Jenni went over to visit Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, 34, at her house. Deena told them that Vinny was mad about what Angelina said.
‘Yeah, that’s a crazy rumor to spread around,’ Nicole said.
Jenni wondered if she could cancel her flight to LA to miss the drama. Angelina arrived and told them that people talk ‘s***’ about her all the time. She said Vinny was just being dramatic. Deena said she really wanted them to take a trip to LA and make a ‘wellness check’ on Vinny. She asked if they could put the drama aside.

‘I think they are thirsty for attention,’ Vinny said.
Vinny then met his realtor Feroz who sold him his house seven months ago. He told him that he was starting to think about moving back.

Over at Mike’s house, he was sitting down with Lauren eating when she said, ‘I want you to enjoy your meal because I have someone on the way and is going to encapsulate my placenta.’
‘Just a quick question, who eats the placenta? Me, you or Mosey. Do you put some olive oil on it?,’ Mike asked.
Lauren said in a confessional that placenta encapsulation was really great for postpartum.

‘Oh s***,’ Mike said when he saw it. He poked at it and said that it looked like jumbo shrimp and the assisant said, ‘That’s the cord.’

In LA, Vinny got a call from his realtor that his house was sold. He called his mother to tell her the news. He told her he was coming back to the East Coast and she said ‘yay!’. Vinny said to the camera that LA might be the right place for his career but that he didn’t want to be away from his family all the time.
Vinny then had his house packed up. He said that he hadn’t told anyone that he was moving because it was kind of embarrassing. He said that deep down he knew that he was doing the right thing.
‘I’m happy about it,’ said Vinny.

Deena told her husband that they were still going to go out there and surprise Vinny.
Angelina and Deena got in a van to fly out to LA. Meanwhile, Vinny packed up his whole house and got in his car and said goodbye to LA.

‘The other night I sat right next to Elton John,’ said Vinny.
‘Is he hot?’ asked Angelina.

‘It’s not right for you and Chris to be on camera and make up such a crazy lie about me,’ said Vinny. ‘That’s a real rumor.’
Angelina said it wasn’t her problem and that he should take it up with Chris. Vinny said that both of them said it and asked her why they did it. He said if she wanted to say things that she should first make sure first that it was true.

‘Who wants to make a wish,’ asked Deena. ‘I do. I wish you would both stop… I left my two kids to come here and deal with two kids enough.’
