Breaking up is hard to do -- especially at the Jersey Shore.
Thursday's episode of the MTV smash hit dealt with the fallout after the breakup between Ronnie Magro and Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, a week after Ronnie busted up all of Sammi's stuff in a juiced-up rampage, causing her to calling a cab and leave the house.
On Thursday, Ronnie was contrite, crying in anguish and sending Sammi flowers.
"I feel like I owe Sam an apology and I can't do it because she's not in the house and I don't want to call her," Ronnie said. "So I sent her flowers, then I sent her sister flowers because it's her birthday."
Ronnie's crocodile tears drew no sympathy from his female housemates ("Ronnie needs to admit it's over," according to Snooki) after his aforementioned spree of destruction.
Sammi, on the other hand, met up with her mother to reflect on the volatile relationship she shared with Ronnie.
The white-hot tension has definitely cast a spell on the house, according to their castmate Pauly D.
"The Ronnie and Sammi drama is awkward. It put such a burden on that house," he told MTV. "Sometimes you can't help but to be involved in their relationship -- you don't even want it. I'm a single guy, I feel like I got girlfriend drama, but we make the best of it.”
Jersey Shore airs on MTV Thursdays at 10/9c.
