EXCLUSIVE: Trailer Choir’s Big Vinny Is Single [VIDEO]
Trailer Choir's Big Vinny has a new lease on life since losing almost 250 pounds on The Biggest Loser, but the changes are coming with a price. He and his significant other Lori Diaz have gone their separate ways. We sat down with Vinny for an exclusive interview to discuss the split and what the future holds.
Vinny and Lori have grown apart since their commitment ceremony in 2012 and have been separated since May. "She decided she wasn't in love with me anymore, in that way. She loved the big ole fat Vinny. But we're still best friends," says Vinny.
The decision to go their separate ways was actually a mutual one. "We both decided it's better for us. I want to have kids and she doesn't want to have anymore," Vinny explained.
She decided she wasn't in love with me anymore, in that way. She loved the big ole fat Vinny. But we're still best friends
Lori has a teenaged son Vinny is very close with, but he wants more. Vinny says although he's upset he won't get to see him everyday, he admires Lori for the difficult decision she made. "I admire her for saying it when I'm 31 as opposed to trying to make it work for 5 more years. If she knows, deep down that it's not what she wants, and I do want that, I'd much rather her say it now."
The single life is something Vinny says he's going to have to get use to but he's looking forward to finding someone new someday. "It's going to be a learning experience but in the meantime, I'm going to go out and date and have some fun. I have to find someone who wants to work out with me, eat the same foods and have the same interests."
Now that Vinny has learned to 'Love Me First,' a song his bandmate Butter wrote during his time on the Biggest Loser, hopefully he can find someone else to love. "I always thought I was the hottest guy in the world, whenever I was fat. I always had that attitude because I knew what I was worth and that's what 'Love Me First' is all about; knowing what you're worth. If you want to change something you have to believe you're worth that change."
