What is happening? During a sneak peek of the Thursday, September 19, episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Jen Harley is stirring the pot again with her on-off boyfriend Ronnie Ortiz-Magro. Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Cortese and Angelina Pivarnick are seated at a restaurant when the drama begins. “Yo. Ronnie is on his phone. Does anyone know what’s going on?” the DJ, 39, asked the group after the 33-year-old got up and went to the bathroom.
“He left it now. I am surprised,” Vinny, 31, said referring to Ronnie’s mobile device, since he has been attached to it lately. “I wish Ron took the phone with him because I can just see a mini Jen climbing out of the phone, trying to kill us all. There is so much drama in that phone right now, I don’t even want it on the table.” The MTV personalities all believe that there is more to the story that Ronnie isn’t explaining. “I think something is going on, but he is trying to save face,” Pauly said.
Shortly afterward, Jen, 31, messages Angelina. “Just, like, all of a sudden, my phone is blowing up, and it’s Jen,” the 33-year-old brunette beauty said. “And those text messages are f—king insane. ‘Ron went to Cabo, went MIA, been texting me crazy s—t all hours of the night, stayed longer, blocked me from everything. He just went completely wack.’ Like, what is really going on right now? I don’t know if he is sober or not. I don’t know who the f—k is lying at this point, and I am very scared.”
So, did Ronnie relapse? Hopefully not! During the August 29 episode of the hit show, the dad of one confessed to his friends and roommates that he had just come back from a Florida treatment center to get help for his issues. “You know, I went to 30 days in treatment. I needed it, man. Too much s—t was going on,” he said. “I appreciate you guys always looking out for me and being there. I was just in it, and I couldn’t see. … I took time to reset. I had to do what I had to do for myself, for the baby. We know the decisions I was making were not the decisions a father should make.”
He added, “I definitely feel like a different person since I went away to treatment. I feel really good, and I feel like I want to be around the gang and back to being who I used to be.”
There’s been no shortage of drama between Jen and Ronnie — who share their 17-month-old daughter, Ariana Sky — over the past two years. However, the duo recently called it quits earlier this month after the blonde beauty claimed Ronnie was spending time with “another” woman.
“I can’t keep taking the abuse by MTV and Ron and the cast,” she wrote in a lengthy statement on Instagram. “Everyone always apologizes to me for saying the things they have to say about me. I can’t take the abuse anymore. It’s not me. I can prove everything!! I’m the one bullied and abused by everyone. Just because I don’t post things that happen to me doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen.”
We can’t wait to see this all unfold.
Jersey Shore: Family Vacation airs on MTV Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET.
