Ronnie Magro accused of gaslighting in remodeled video
Besieged ‘Jersey Shore’ star Ronnie Magro has been accused of lighting one of his former roommates on gas after fans resurfaced a video from the first season of ‘Jersey Shore Family Vacation’. The scene was posted on Reddit on May 18, where hundreds of fans uploaded the clip. The scene didn’t exactly age in Ronnie’s favor after his second domestic violence arrest on April 22.
The video shows the group heading to a Miami club for the first time since Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino began his sobriety journey, but the conversation quickly turned into a fight between Ronnie and Deena Cortese.
It was the first time the group had been together without Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, who withdrew from the series after the end of “Jersey Shore”. The roommates were injured Sammi abandoned them and DJ Pauly D tried to replace her by bringing a sex doll. Everyone in the group thought it was funny except for Deena, and Ronnie didn’t like Deena standing up for his ex-girlfriend.
“You know that D, you’re a good person but you play both ways,” he told her in the van on the way to the club. “You wanna be my friend, you wanna be Sam’s friend, but if Sam was talking about me, you wouldn’t be like, ‘Don’t say that about Ron.'”
Deena told Ron that she had never been in this situation because Sammi had not brought Ronnie. “She’s not talking about you at all,” the self-proclaimed meatball told her.
Ronnie was shocked. “Are you going to tell me that last year she never said anything bad about me?” He asked. “These are the biggest *** bulls I have ever heard in my life. His life revolved around me.
Deena continued to defend Sammi. “But that’s not the case anymore,” she told him. “Why would Sam and I talk about you?”
In a confessional with MTV cameras, Deena explained why she wasn’t holding back. “Look, bitch, I’m not the same person I was in Jersey,” she said. “I am a grown woman. I’m not gonna take your fucking bulls ***.
Ronnie retired from the MTV series after being arrested on suspicion of domestic violence with injuries and with priors. The felony charges against him were dropped, but he was slapped with a probation violation and is due in court on June 29. The first instance involved ex-girlfriend Jen Harley and the second included her current partner, eyelash technician Saffire Matos. Ronnie and Jen share their 3-year-old daughter Ariana Sky.
