Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley's confrontation gets so aggressive, "Jersey Shore" producers have to get involved.
This week's "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" picked up where last week's left off -- with Ronnie Ortiz-Magro finally letting his roommates in on all the drama going on between him and his baby mama, Jen Harley.
The emotional powwow continued as the gang tried to offer Ronnie their best advice on how to handle the situation. Jenni "JWoww" Farley apologized for getting involved and forming a relationship with Jen, but Ronnie was so hung up on the possibility of Jen taking his baby away from him forever, he wasn't too worried about being mad at Jenni.
Pauly D, specifically, felt for Ronnie. He told cameras he had gone through a similar situation with his own baby mama before they were able to achieve a solid place of co-parenting. But Ronnie explained there was no reasoning with Jen. He said she managed to manipulate everyone in his life. As he sobbed uncontrollably, Ron told his castmates he felt helpless in the situation. The group told him repeatedly he needed to fight for his rights as a father.
It was all too much for Ronnie to handle, so he stormed out of their hotel room and into the hallway. He was stopped by show producers, who sat down on the floor with him and talked him through his options. Pauly joined them, offering some solid advice. It was actually a very raw and beautiful "Jersey Shore" moment.
Jen eventually made her way to Planet Hollywood and into the room where the cast was staying. Ronnie had stepped out to go talk to an attorney, and based on the group's faces, no one -- not even producers -- was expecting her to stop by.
She proceeded to trash talk Ron and say she blocked him because he had been messaging her incessantly and calling her names. No one was really buying what she was selling. She pressed the group to tell her where Ronnie was, but no one budged. Eventually, a producer came around from the back and said, "Just to clarify, so when we talked, I said that Ron would be back around 7:30, 8 o'clock. If you wanna come back, you guys can talk."
Jen got up and left, yelling as she walked through the door. "I'm f--king sick of it, and I wanna know the f--king truth," she said as she aggressively took off her mic. "Get this f--king shit off me! You guys are f--king liars!"
The group was shocked to see that side of Jen and had Ronnie's back the whole time. They decided to go out to dinner to give Ronnie some privacy for when she returned.
Fast-forward to later that night, when Ronnie was sitting at the empty hotel room and Jen came back in a fit of rage.
JEN: "Ron! You're texting me I'm a f--king whore? I'm a liar? I'm a fucking cheater?"
RON: "Calm down. Calm down. Sit down so I can talk to you."
JEN: "I'm not gonna clam down. No!"
RON: "So after we were supposed to hang out last night, you blocked me..."
JEN: "I don't wanna hear your whole f--king bullshit story! You text me at 1:30 'slut, whore, liar, cheater, bitch' -- all this. You're calling me a f--king whore?! Motherf--ker!"
RON: "You are driving me crazy!"
JEN: "How?! 'Cause I blocked you?"
RON: "You are holding my kid over me! All the time. Every time. All you do is use that kid as a f--king pawn!"
JEN: "She's f--king home, bro. She's home! You're a f--king psychopath! You're a f--king loser! You're a piece of shit!"
Jen then spat in Ronnie's face and called him a "piece of shit" once more, prompting a producer to get in front of Jen and physically restrain her.
"You're calling me a f--king whore?! Motherf--ker! Oh, you're so f--king calm?! You're texting me I'm a f--king whore?! You're calling me a f--king whore?!" she continued to yell in Ron's face as she angrily took her mic off once again. She then lunged at Ronnie with open fists and the screen went dark. "I don't give a f--k. I'll go to jail!"
The fight will continue next week, and it looks like Ronnie ends up calling the cops on Jen. He's seen telling Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni, "Cops came here and said, 'Listen, that's domestic violence.' I go, 'I don't wanna press charges.' They go, 'It doesn't matter.' And now Jen is gonna have a warrant out for her arrest."
"Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on MTV.
