Watching the one and only Ronnie Ortiz-Magro in the last few episodes of Jersey Shore Family Vacation, all we can say is yikes. The clips of him flirting with, touching, and entering a bathroom with some rando chick — all while his girlfriend Jen Harley was at home pregnant with their baby — are nothing short of cringeworthy. When Jen saw inappropriate videos of Ron on Instagram and called him to be like, "Uh, what the hell, we're literally about to have a human child together," we couldn't help but feel like justice was having its day. But things got even messier when, as all of this was playing out on TV, their baby girl was born and they were breaking up IRL. And now we just rediscovered an interview Ronnie did with In Touch just a few months ago where he fully shaded the idea of a Jersey Shore reunion and having kids any time soon. Talk about a double-whammy. Check out what Ron had to say in the video above.
We did the math and when this interview took place, Ronnie's then-girlfriend was a few months along in her pregnancy.
If he wanted to wait for his life to be on track before he took this next step of becoming a dad, well, he kind of missed the mark on that one — big time. The grossest part? His girlfriend was actually already pregnant when he was saying that but OK, there's a chance he might've not known Jen was pregnant. We did the math though and she was around FOUR MONTHS pregnant at the time of this interview so there's also a pretty good chance he could've known already too. Again, just yikes. Not only did he and Jen recently break up, he also had a total Instagram melt down where he started seriously s–t talking her. "Note to self, can't turn a natural born HOE into a HOUSE WIFE, if u [sic] find them in the gutter than [sic] leave them in the gutter, not all people can be saved when they are so far gone," he wrote in a story. "All you can say you did [ur] best and keep it moving! #FACTS #YEAHBUDDY." Dude, this is literally the mother of your child. Are you like… OK? We mean, we know you tend to "spiral" — especially under the influence of Ron Ron Juice — but like, this is beyond the pale. Beyond the bright orange tan, even.
Ronnie called a Jersey Shore reunion a "recipe for disaster."
But what did we expect when the father-to-be entered the Jersey Shore Family Vacation house in the presence of a sex doll meant to mock his ex, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola — and then talked about how he was still in love with her just a few episodes later? Yeah, Ronnie pretty much did an about-face on everything he talked about with In Touch back in November. Well, except for the part where he said that, when the cast gets back together, he wants to cause some "f–king drama." And let us not forget how he said he wasn't really ready to have a kid yet, because perfect dad material, he's definitely not. Sorry, but there are no points for self-awareness on that one. It's just too bad it's a little late to change things, and now his adorable little girl will always be able to see just how messy her dad is. When it comes to Ron's time on the show, "recipe for disaster" definitely just about covers it.
