Before we go any further, allow us to say up front:
There are no winner in this situation. There are no sides to take between Jen Harley and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.
Both really need to go away and figure out some sort of amicable relationship for the sake of their daughter and that’s pretty much where we stand on their never-ending, ridiculous, scandalous drama.
Still, we’re obligated to report on it.
So here we go…
During this week’s episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Ronnie told his roommates that he didn’t completely trust Harley because she had cheated in the past.
(The installment was filmed months ago, remember, prior to Harley giving birth to Ronnie’s daughter in early April.)
"You’re nervous she’s going to cheat on you?" Deena asked Ronnie at one point.
"Yeah," he replied.
"Because she did before?" Snooki follow.
"Yeah," he said again.
The thing is, of course, Ronnie cheated on Harley on muliple occasions himself; shamelessly so, as we witnessed on previous installments of the Jersey Shore reboot.
“Nobody’s perfect. I did my dirt too," Ronnie did acknowledge on this new episode, adding as an excuse:
"But everything I did was a reaction to her actions. I’m also not used to being with someone like myself. Like, I met my match."
That much has been clear by the very public fights Jen and Ronnie have engaged in of late.
Before we recount those, however, let’s hear from Harley, shall we?
Is Ronnie at least telling the truth? Did she sleep with another man behind his back?
"I’m sure he’s referring to when we were dating for about a month or two," Harley tells Us Weekly, confessing to her sins, but making it sound like they shouldn’t really count.
"We hadn’t established a real relationship; my ex came back around. I had mixed feelings at the time. We just got out of a four-year relationship."
A mere month after becoming parents, Jen and Ronnie WENT OFF ON EACH OTHER via social media.
"Note to self: Can’t turn a natural-born HO, into a HOUSEWIFE," Ronnie said to open this back-and-forth several weeks ago, adding of his baby mama:
If you find them in the gutter, leave them in the gutter."
He followed this up with another post that read as follows:
"If your significant other keeps sex videos of their ex, shouldn’t they show enough respect to delete them, esp. after being in a new relationship for over a year?"
Ronnie also referred to Harley as a "cum dumpster."
This happened a few weeks after she gave birth to his child.
Harley, for her part, proved that she could give as well as she could take.
"Can’t turn a coke head into a father!" she fired back, later adding:
"When your man goes all Rob Kardashian on you," accompanied by a laugh-cry emoji.
As you can see, these two bring out the worst in each other.
And the worst of it all was captued on camera:
In her chat with Us Weekly, Harley says her cheating with her ex is what got Ronnie all worked up.
"This is all part of the Instagram fight we got into because of this incident," she admits.
"When I came clean about this, he came clean about three times he hooked up with other girls in the same time period.
"We decided we wanted to be together and work though this and not to ever do it again."
This is what Harley says… but consider what she allegedly did in Las Vegas on June 7.
She surprised her man in diabolical fashion, an insider tells this same tabloid, while was shooting scenes for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 2.
“Ronnie and Jen have been fighting over their daughter," this source said of the recent fight, explaining:
"Ronnie has been filming the show in Vegas the last couple of days and Jen wouldn’t tell him where their daughter is. She showed up to the hotel where they were filming.
"Jen lunged, spit and shoved Ronnie. Hotel security got involved, who then called the Las Vegas police department.”
It bears repeating AGAIN that these two have a very young child together.
They really need to work something out.
