Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is known for his emotional outbursts on Jersey Shore. This time, though, he took his rants to a different screen.
In last week’s episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was headed for trouble.
Viewers watched on the edge of their seats as the MTV star appeared to cheat on his baby mama once again.
Their relationship status was previously unclear to fans of the hit franchise, but Ron clearly made some mistakes because he has opened up and publicly apologized to Jen Harley.
Is he desperate to make amends after the couple’s surprise engagement?
Jen was seen rocking a big diamond on her finger…yes, that finger.
This is only one in a string of recent public outings for the tumultuous couple. In their most high-profile date, they stepped out together for Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s big Italian wedding.
Thankfully, The Blast reported that Jen already owned the ring and been photographed in it. It looks as though she just decided to wear it in an unusual spot for the day.
It was a relief to hear that there has not been an engagement, as it seems like Ronnie might not be ready to take that step with Jen.
On one episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi prodded Ronnie about why he hadn’t proposed to Jen yet. The 32-year-old admitted to harboring some unresolved feelings for Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola.
“I think I just miss the feeling of security because that’s what she gave. And that’s so f**king hard to find,” he explained. “And I feel like that’s why I am the way I am and will continue to be the way I am.”
In a confessional, Ronnie revealed, “Every man wishes that he can be with the love of his life. Like, being with someone for seven years and then you don’t end up with that person? Yeah, it hurts.”
He then went on to describe how “f**king miserable” he felt in his current predicament.
“Me and Jen obviously rushed things,” Ronnie said, explaining Jen got pregnant just three months into their relationship. “If Jen was not pregnant, I don’t know if I’d be with her.”
Clearly, Ronnie has some regrets about the relationship. He has previously fought with his on-again, off-again girlfriend about his unfaithful behavior while filming in Miami. It seemed as though the couple moved on, but now Ronnie is at it again!
In last week’s episode, the Jersey Shore star gets very close to a visitor, Angelina Pivarnick’s friend.
Ronnie offers to take a dip in the hot tub with Lindsay, and he maintains that it is totally innocent fun.
“Listen, I’ve seen a lot of girls in bathing suits,” the father-of-one explains in the confessional. “I’ve seen a lot of girls without bathing suits. So, another girl in a bathing suit isn’t really that tempting and I’m not going to go down that road again.”
However, when he sees her in a bikini, things change.
Vinny Guadagnino even suggests, “Ronnie is getting a weird look in his eye around Jewish Barbie.”
Lindsay asks Ron, “So you’re still not single, yet?” His sigh in response says it all! Nothing happens on camera, but the night ends with Ronnie inviting the guest to sleep in his bed.
Of course, this all was nationally broadcast and we’re guessing that Jen Harley was watching. On Sunday, Ronnie spoke out about the incident on his Instagram story.
“Obviously the last episode has made it seem like I was into Jewish rag doll,” he began, but contended, “It’s edited to make it look worse. I was in a bad place in my life and my relationship and I acted out of anger & immature resentment.”
The Jersey Shore star continued, “Since than [sic] I’ve grown & wouldn’t want to hurt my girlfriend or my daughter, everyone makes mistakes and you’ll see next week that I learned from mine.”
“I wouldn’t never put myself in that position again to hurt the two people I love the most in my life,” Ronnie promised. “I want to lead by example for my daughter and how to be a real man and I need to lead how to be a good boyfriend/husband. I’m sorry to @@tt_kittymeow @ariana_sky_magro.”
Later, he posted again and emphasized:
“Repost, I just wanted to apology [sic] to my family for putting myself in such a bad position in last weeks episode, here’s a repost, stating I love them more than anything and the editing make it worse than it seems. I promise there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I wouldn’t do anything to hurt either of them. I love you both”
