After Las Vegas, the crew headed back to New Jersey for a bit of R&R before heading to the original Shore House in Seaside Heights to finish up their "Family Vacation." They were on vacay from Part 2 of their "vacay" for about a week, meaning shit hit the fan the second they left Ronnie and Jen alone in Vegas, where the tumultuous couple resides permanently.
On June 24, Jen and Ronnie got into an argument on their way home from a barbecue. Jen allegedly hit Ronnie in the face, then dragged him when he tried to get out of the car. According to TMZ, the vehicle suffered a flat tire, which was the result of Jen driving over a median when she took off. Their then-2-month-old daughter, Ariana, was in the car.
Later that day, Jen was arrested for domestic battery and booked at the Clark County Detention Center. She was also the suspect in a battery investigation for allegedly spitting on and hitting Ronnie three weeks prior, which was documented on "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation." But Jen told TooFab MTV "didn't show the truth" about what led to that debacle.
"Ron supposedly got into a fight with Jen," Vinny Guadagnino said to Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino on Thursday's episode as the two headed to the Shore House. "Jen dragged him with the car and drove him over a divider. The relationship is toxic, and it's insane staying in it. Getting dragged out of cars and shit?"
"I know, I know, I know," Mike replied. "The definition of insanity is repeating the same actions over and over again, and expecting different results."
"Homeboy is destroyed right now," Jenni "JWoww" Farley said to a pregnant Deena Cortese on their way to the Shore House. "He texted me yesterday. He's at urgent care for all sorts of parts of his body, and I was like, 'Are you coming?!' He was like, 'I'm gonna try.' No! You're not! Don't!"
"He sent me a picture," Deena said to Jenni. "I showed Chris. He goes, 'What the f--k?!' I was like, 'I know!' He didn't show his face, but I heard his face is all f--ked up"
"Honestly, I don't want him coming," Jenni later told cameras. "I really don't because I want him with his baby. Between her jumping a median with the f--king baby in the car, she dragged Ron with the car, he's in a f--king sling and is covered in blood. Like, done. I'm not speaking to her, and I'm gonna keep it very light and sweet with Ron 'cause this shit is too crazy."
Fast-forward to the gang (minus Ronnie) arriving at the Shore House -- where MVP, GTL and T-shirt Time were created. Ahhhhh, memories. While shots were being poured, Ronnie FaceTimed the crew to let them know he wouldn't be able to join them for Part 2 of their vacay.
"I'm kind of okay with Ron not being here right now," Vinny later told cameras. "He just needs to sit this one out, work on himself. Hopefully, this was a huge wake-up call for him, and he could just figure it out on his own."
Next week, Angelina sticks her bare ass in Mike's Funfetti cake, so stay tuned!
"Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on MTV.
