Life has been chaotic for Jersey Shore Family Vacation star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro ever since filming wrapped on Season 1 of the revival series, and now its been revealed Ronnie's life has impacted his ability to do the show. It's being reported that Jersey Shore Family Vacation has concluded filming Season 2 and that Ronnie wasn't around to send off the season. Details at this time aren't entirely known, although a recent altercation between Ortiz-Magro and his baby mama Jen Harley is believed to have played a factor.
Ronnie's absence during the cast's final shoot at the original Jersey Shore shore house in Seaside Heights came just after news broke that his ex Jen Harley was released on bond for charges of domestic battery. Harley allegedly drove off while Ortiz-Magro attempted to exit a car the two were in, which resulted in her dragging him down the road and injuring him. Jersey Shore Family Vacation was not filming the day the event happened, and while Ronnie's specific injuries are unknown, the situation appeared to be severe enough that he didn't appear for the final episodes. It is unknown whether or not Ortiz-Magro's absence was his decision, or perhaps something encouraged by the show's crew or MTV.
App. reported that Jersey Shore Family Vacation did find someone to replace Ronnie, at least for the interim, although fans may be disappointed to hear that the show hasn't finally convinced Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola to make her comeback. Instead, the show rang up Angelina Pivarnick to rejoin the cast once again, perhaps in an effort to stir the pot in Ortiz-Magro's absence. Pivarnick certainly did just that in her long-awaited reunion with the Jersey Shore cast in Season 1, and has continued to stir the pot with several castmates since her last appearance.
Meanwhile, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has gone radio silent on all of his social media platforms. Unconfirmed reports have stated the Jersey Shore Family Vacation castmember is wanting a formal custody agreement in place between him and ex Jen Harley for their daughter Ariana Sky. The latest drama comes just days after the Season 1 finale of Jersey Shore Family Vacation in which Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Ortiz-Magro butted heads over an allegation that Situation said he needed to go to rehab. The Situation took things one step further by revealing on camera that Ortiz-Magro told him in private he wanted to go to rehab after filming Season 1, which has not been reported to have happened in the time since the show wrapped.
Jersey Shore Family Vacation isn't wasting any time in giving fans more episodes, as Season 2 of the revival series is set to premiere on MTV in August. For more information on shows to watch prior to that, be sure to head on over to our summer premiere guide.
