On the season finale of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Ronnie Magro and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino got into a heated fight over Ronnie’s drinking and partying. After some low blows and dirty insults, things only got worse when Jenni “JWoww” Farley took it upon herself to stir the pot.
It all began when Mike aired out Ronnie’s dirty laundry after the two had a heart-to-heart, two weeks before they arrived at the Miami beach house to film the show.
During a group talk — without Ronnie — Mike revealed to the Jersey Shore gang that their pal was struggling with alcohol issues and needed to seek help. Later, as they all gathered around the table for one final dinner together, Jenni spilled the beans to Ronnie about what Mike had said.
Of course, Ronnie was less than thrilled.
“First of all, when I’m having a kid in six weeks I like to drink! I like to f**king party!” Ronnie screamed across the table at Mike. “I didn’t make it my life. You made it your life. You let it affect your whole life, you let it destroy your whole life. So don’t sit there and say that I f**king need rehab!”
“Number two: I get crazy when I party but it never affected my life bro. You made it your life, you let it affect your whole life, you let it destroy your whole life. Don’t sit here and say…”
“Destroy my life?” a heated Mike asked, interrupting Ronnie.
“Yeah bro. Look at you. You got a tax evasion. You almost lost everything that you f**king earned!” Ronnie replied.
“Did you not call me two weeks before because you said you needed rehab?!” Mike asked.
“No, I said I needed help. I said I needed help, and the baby coming my way. I said when I leave here I’m going to go rehab,” Ronnie replied.
“Exactly, you said you needed rehab,” Mike shot back.
“You put people’s dirt out there," Ronnie yelled. “You had to bring it in the house... Your s**t is public! Your s**t is real news — on the papers! That’s why I talked about it. I don’t bring your dirt in the house. I don’t f**king sweep your name under the f**king mud. I just say what facts are!”
“So you don’t go low in this house?” Mike asked.
“I don’t have a problem bro. I help myself. You never help yourself. Lauren helps you now. I take care of f**king Jen. I take care of my kid and her f**king kid. Facts!” Ronnie said slamming his hands down on the table. “End of the f**king story. Bottom line. So never f**king say I need help.”
“First of all you’re coming from a bad place right now,” Mike said. “Yes you are. we are all brothers and sisters in this house. And you do not need to raise your voice like that.”
“No, I do, because I get that you’re four years sober or two-and-a-half years sober but I have partied with you before. Have we not?" Ronnie asked.
“Yes we have,” Mike agreed.
“So for you to sit here and pass judgment on me and what I’ve done when I have full or maybe half control of my life, when you’ve never had any control is f**cking being not what you’ve learned in f**king rehab!” Ronnie slammed Mike.
“I agree to disagree. I agree to disagree. That’s all.” Mike said ending the argument.
Vinny Guadagnino and the rest of the cast members sat in shocked silence as they watched the drama unfold. Once the fight ended, it was time for damage control.
“What the f**k just happened?" Vinny told the cameras. "This is like Jedi-level pot stirring by Jenni!”
Jenni — feeling a bit guilty for causing the drama — went outside to speak with Ronnie.
“I would have literally beat his a**," he told Jenni. "When I called him, it was like calling a sponsor almost. It’s no one’s f**king business. And that’s what I don’t like. He used it against me, and that’s what I don’t like. For that I don’t f**king call you no more. Now we are back to square one. You’re the Snitchuation little b**ch. If he wasn’t so nice I’d probably have the s**t out of him already.”
“Mike does nothing but stab me in the back,” Ronnie told the cameras. “It sucks and it gets me angry, because I went to Mike asking for his advice and asking for his wisdom and he tried to throw it back in my face.”
Mike came to terms with his mistake and decided to confront Ronnie privately and apologize.
“Listen. I want to just sit down with you immediately because we should not act out on the dinner table no matter how it is,” Mike told Ronnie.
“You’re right,’ Ronnie agreed. “Honestly Mike I confided in you in something personal and you put that s**t out there. That’s not okay bro.”
“It’s not,” Mike admitted. “And I apologize.”
“And I apologize for the way I reacted. But my reaction was to your action,” Ronnie replied.
“Number one: I care about you,” Mike said. “Number two: I was f**king wrong, I was concerned about you.”
“I love you bro,” Ronnie replied. “Yeah I’m getting drunk here. You know why, I’m going home to a pregnant woman, a baby."
“Me and Mike are always going to have a little bit of animosity, which is what it is,” Ronnie told cameras. It’s always been that way. But at the same time, I do love him. He’s definitely been like a brother to me.”
“One day we love each other, one day we hate each other," Mike admitted to the cameras. "But deep down through all the bulls**t I really do care and love Ronnie and want to see the best of him.”
Mike then revealed his own struggles with alcohol and how he was able to overcome them.
“When I first started this vacation, I didn’t know how to stay sober around these savages” Mike explained. “But now I know how to party, dance, stay sober. I’m very proud of myself.”
While all the bad blood has come to an end for now, another Jersey Shore reunion is on the horizon soon. For all the latest drama, tune in next season, when the gang heads to Las Vegas and New Jersey!
