Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has publicly apologized after a recent episode of Jersey Shore Family Vacation potentially revealed him cheating on his baby mama, Jen Harley. The episode showed Ronnie and a mutual friend of Angelina's (nicknamed "Jewish Barbie") getting close after a night out on the town. Ronnie apologized to his family for the footage shown thus far and mentioned that things were presented a lot worse than they actually were.
Obviously the last episode has made it seem like I was into Jewish rag doll, it's edited to make it look worse. I was in a bad place in my life and acted out of anger & immature resentment. Since then I've grown & wouldn't want to do anything 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. I want to lead (sic) my example for my daughter how to be a real man and I need to (sic) lead how to be a good boyfriend/Husband...I love you both.
Ronnie's allegation that the footage was edited to make it look worse came after scenes which showed Ronnie getting close to "Jewish Barbie" in the cab ride home, and getting in the hot tub with her alone. Prior to the hot tub moment, the castmates were teasing Ronnie about how he may repeat the mistake he made during Season 1 of Jersey Shore Family Vacation. Ronnie laughed, yet continued on despite warnings his girlfriend Jen may not appreciate his actions.
Ronnie also teased in his Instagram public apology (via E! Online) that an upcoming Jersey Shore Family Vacation episode will feature him learning from his mistake. A preview for the upcoming episode showed that Ronnie will end up in his bedroom with the lights off, in what appears to be a romantic encounter with "Jewish Barbie". Ronnie is then seen after in the dark bedroom saying "there goes my life."
The headline is just the latest in the saga of Ronnie and Jen Harley's relationship, which first caught the public's attention with his infidelity in Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 1. Ronnie hooked up with a girl codenamed "French Fries" while Jen was at their home in the late stages of her pregnancy with their daughter Ariana Sky. The couple has had several feuds since, one of which involved a car dragging and Harley's arrest.
