These days, Jersey Shore fanatics are forced to rely on the surprisingly entertaining Double Shot at Love in order to get their guido fix.
But fear not, fist-pumpers and tanning bed enthusiasts -- Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 3 is headed your way!
The sadly Situation-less next leg of the world's longest vacay is currently filming.
And it seems an unwelcome guest is trying to weasel her way into the fam.
No, we're not talking about the Dirty Hamster herself, Angelina Pivarnick, who's surprisingly been accepted back into the crew (despite some major misgivings from Jenni Farley and others).
We're talking about Ronnie Magro's baby mama, Jen Harley, a woman whose destructive behavior makes Snooki and the rest of the Spiral Squad look like a pack of spray-tanned nuns.
Harley was taken into custody last month on an outstanding assault warrant, a development that surprised absolutely no one, as the mother of one engages in acts of violence as frequently and casually as most folks do their laundry.
But Jen assures her fans (LOL -- like she has any fans) that despite her recent legal setbacks, she will play a major role in the upcoming season of Shore.
Fortunately, Pauly D says that's total BS:
“She’s not really part of the show, but sometimes she does make a little appearance,” he tells Us Weekly.
“She is a part of his life … [and] you get to see our individual lives. Pretty cool."
Jen's psychotic temper can be entertaining in small doses, so we're okay with her making "a little appearance" now and then.
But if she were to become a regular cast member, we might have to check out of the Seaside House.
As for Ronnie, Pauly says he's taken the right steps to turn things around and is currently doing better than ever.
Magro checked into rehab back in February, and these days he's healthy, sober, and committed to being the best dad he can be:
"He’s doing well. You know, he’s going through it. He’s on that right path too," says Pauly, adding:
"He went to rehab and came back."
Pauly says that no matter what happens with Jen, Ron's daughter, Ariana is and shall remain his top priority:
"He’s putting his daughter first, which is the most important thing," Pauly reports.
"[He’s] getting himself right, putting his daughter as a priority. He’s still on that same path, which is great.”
Sounds like we've seen our last Ron-page, which is a very good thing.
