If you watched the inaugural season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation or even just paid passing attention to any of the cast member's social media pages, then you know the drama between Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley has made Ron's relationship with Sammi Giancola look downright stable by comparison.
In fact, the whole situation has been more Jerry Springer than Jersey Shore.
On the show, the couple mostly kept things civil, despite the well-publicized incident in which Ronnie got handsy with a French Fry.
In real life, Ronnie and Jen welcomed a daughter, and it briefly looked as though they had every intention of trying to make things work.
But then Ortiz-Magro's famously volatile (and allegedly steroid-fueled) temper became an issue, and the new dad launched a virulent and incessant tirade of irate tweets against Harley.
In other words, Rahn refused to Stahp.
He called Harley a "c-m dumpster" and publicly accused her of cheating.
She responded by calling him a deadbeat dad and accusing him of engaging in his own infidelities.
The situation came to a head last week when Jen allegedly dragged Ronnie alongside her car and was arrested on assault charges.
The cast is currently filming a second season of JSFV, and needless to say, Ronnie's situation has complicated the production process.
Shooting began in Vegas, the city that both Ronnie and Jen currently call home.
For obvious reasons, this turned out to be a mistake.
Ronnie got in a fight on the second day of filming, forcing production to shut down for the day.
The operation has now relocated to the crew's original stomping ground of Seaside Heights, New Jersey.
But according to a new report from The Ashley's Reality Roundup, Ronnie did not make the trip with the rest of the cast.
The situation has led to rumors that Ronnie was fired from the show due to his tumultuous relationship with Harley.
Sources have confirmed, however, that that's not the case, and Ortiz-Magro is simply taking time to recover from injuries he suffered during the car dragging incident.
“His family flew there to be with him,” one insider told US Weekly.
“He’s recovering from his injuries. He was hurt pretty badly and needs the time to heal.”
Police determined that Ronnie was blameless in the incident, as he was attempting to get out of Harley's car when she began to drive away.
“He asked [her to] pull over and let him out of the car,” the source told Us.
“She stopped, and Ronnie tried getting out and got caught in his seatbelt. Jen started driving away, dragging Ronnie…Ronnie’s face was bloodied and bruised, and he’s got a nasty road rash.”
Sounds like we're in for another season of serious Ronnie drama, but fear not -- there will be plenty of comic relief as well.
The Dirty Hamster herself, Angelina Pivarnick, was reportedly spotted touring Seaside with the rest of the guidos.
She's not exactly a fan favorite, but we may need Angelina's absurdity to help keep things light in future episodes.
