He’s venting his frustrations. Ronnie Ortiz-Magro called out Jenni “JWoww” Farley for not opening up about her divorce with Roger Mathews on the July 25 episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. The MTV alum voiced how upset it made him that she wouldn’t discuss her split, when the same rules weren’t applied to him when he was going through a breakup with Jen Harley.
Ronnie, 33, asked Jenni about her relationship while on the show, but she wasn’t down to discuss it. “I don’t want to be on camera with this,” she told him at the bar. “We’re not talking about it.” Deena Cortese even told him to not bring it up, but the father of one felt the double standard was unfair, mentioning how “everyone” did it to him when the tables were turned.
“When I was going through s—t, everyone was so worried and they wanted to talk about it,” he said in the confessional. “So why isn’t everyone worried about Jenni going through a divorce?”
“We all know stuff about each other and it just seems like everyone just wants to put my s—t out there, but at the same time, ignore Jenni and what she’s going through out of respect,” Ronnie added. “It just shows that there’s a lack of respect that they have for me and my life, because when s–t was going on with me and Jen, everyone wanted to talk about it.”
As fans may recall, Jenni, 33, filed for divorce from her estranged husband, Roger, 44, in September 2018, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split. Ronnie’s relationship has also made headlines as there’s been no shortage of drama between him and Jen.
During the new episode, Ronnie explained why he felt for Roger amid their relationship turmoil. “I know what he’s going through. To be with somebody that is so cold and shows no emotion and all you do is give and give and give, it hurts,” the reality star told Angelina Pivarnick. “How do you deal with someone that’s f—king fake and not in touch with their emotions and not communicative? I get it. We’re not asking for much, we’re just asking for real-life emotion.”
“It’s the worst thing ever to be with someone and not know how they feel,” Ronnie continued. “You might as well f–king be with a f–king corpse.”
After the show aired, Jenni took to Twitter to explain why she decided to stay mum at the time. “This was in October when nothing was public,” she responded to one heated tweet. “So no hypocrisy there sweetie … I chose to keep this matter private for my children. Some people like to put their s–t out on IG and not think about how that will affect their loved ones.”
