TMZ broke the story last weekend that Vinny was burned out with the show and left for good -- returning to his home in Staten Island.
Although almost everyone affiliated with the show was none-too-sad to see him leave, apparently some have had a change of heart. We're told the cast is actually going to lobby tonight for Vinny to return.
They plan on going clubbing after dinner -- so assuming no one gets knocked out ... it could be the rapprochement that makes for a decent storyline.
Stay tuned ...
