Inside Deena's 'Jersey Shore' Reunion Wedding

Snooki, Jwoww, The Situation, Pauly D, Vinny and Sammi were all at Deena's wedding -- so where was Ronnie?

While it seemed like the entire cast of "Jersey Shore" celebrated their co-star Deena Cortese's marriage in New Jersey Saturday night, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was notably absent.

But don't fret, there's no bad blood between the reality star friends. Ortiz-Magro told TooFab ahead of the event that he couldn't attend since he was in Los Angeles working on a business deal.

"I'm not going to make it to Deena's wedding. I'm actually in the middle of a project, a business investment so I have to be out here in California," Ortiz-Magro told TooFab. "She knows that I wish her the best. Her and Chris, you know, they're a great couple and I'm always rooting for them and I'm happy that she found someone to spend the rest of her life with."

Cortese married her longtime boyfriend Christopher Buckner nearly a year after he proposed. The "blast in a glass" is the third cast member to say "I do," as Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi married Jionni LaValle in 2014 and Jenni "JWoww" Farley married Roger Matthews the following year. Both Snooki and JWoww now have children, as well.

"I can't wait to hear the news that they are going to have a kid," Ortiz-Magro said. "Two meatballs to complete the pasta."

This isn't the first time Ortiz-Magro was MIA from a "Jersey Shore" reunion. The fan favorite also opted out of filming the cast's Burger King commercial this past July.

"The reunion was for a Burger King commercial and it was shot on the East Coast, but he is in a holding position right now because he's filming on the West Coast," his rep told TooFab. "If there was an opportunity for a reunion he would be excited and would love to be with his fellow castmates."

JWoww later told TooFab that she thought Ortiz-Magro was missing because he probably wasn't allowed.

"This is me being an investigator 'cause it's on E! and it wasn't our production company so I'm thinking, 'Oh, well maybe they just weren't allowed to use the whole cast because they weren't asked because then maybe it becomes a legal issue.'"

When asked if Ortiz-Magro's absence was related to limitations in his "Famously Single" contract that airs on E!, she said: "Maybe. I mean that's what I always look at."
