"I believe [Ronnie] made a mistake, and he was just trying to rationalize," Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino told TooFab of the ordeal. "I don't think he realized the ramifications that were gonna come from that day when he was in the club and he was drunk or intoxicated and he acted like that. I was trying to tell him -- being the sober one -- that you know what you did, in my opinion, was wrong. I was just trying to be a good friend to him. That's all."
On Thursday's episode, Ronnie was finally able to get in touch with then-pregnant girlfriend Jen Harley to explain himself and the incriminating videos she may or may not have seen on Instagram, but she didn't seem too upset. She was quiet and short with her responses, but not once did she mention the girl from the club. She said she was tired but otherwise "good."
The exchange was rather odd, but according to Mike, that's because Jen really didn't know the extent of the situation.
"I believe that [Jen] had an idea, but I don't think she had facts like if she watched it just now -- which, we all have facts now," Mike said. "So at that time period, she was just like, whatever, going forward. I'm sure she's watching it back now and is not very happy."
Mike believes Ronnie "should have handled himself" differently knowing he had a pregnant girlfriend back home.
"If you have a significant other at home or your significant other's pregnant or whatever, you need to have boundaries in the club and you need to learn other ways to be entertaining without crossing those boundaries and doing old behaviors to have fun," Mike explained. "Dancing with other women or grinding with other women or bringing home other women -- that's crossing the line, and you're acting like you're single when you're not."
When asked about Ronnie's current debacle with his baby mama, Mike simply said it was "unfortunate." Mike also said he hopes Ronnie will "show a different side or a different chapter to his story" on Season 2 of "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation."
