Thought the same thing myself. Senior did not make Vinny successful or famous. It was his own talents that made him successful and the show made him famous neither can be claimed by Paul Sr. I think that was a rare glimpse of Paul Sr in completely unedited form. Sure Sr. made the show famous with his steroid induced rages but his true character came out in that scene. Why Vinnie ever agreed to even meet the SOB I will never know. Anyone else cringe a little when Sr also encouraged the making of the booklet he sent to Jessie? If he really cared about Paul Jr he would not continue to bash him every chance he gets. Just a shame. I actually liked the show but agree that it has run its course.
Sr really loves himself
