The Jersey Shore’s Ronnie Ortiz-Magro And Sammi Giancola Call It Quits For Good…Again

2013 MTV Movie Awards Arrivals

It’s the end of an era, for sure. My fist isn’t pumping as high as it normally would be on Little Friday. My tan is fading, and my laundry is dirty. I would consider it a sad day, but then I think about all the Caboodles make-up organizers whose lives will be saved because of this news. “Sad” just isn’t the right word; perhaps bittersweet is a better description.

In the land of airbrushed cut-out t-shirts, trucker caps, day drinking, astroturf lawns, and Sunday dinners, the landscape just got a bit less…club-ish. That’s right. Former Jersey Shore stars Ronnie “Rawn” Ortiz-Magro and Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola have called it quits. Again. For real this time. It’s over. More over than it was the last time it was over…or the time it was over before that. What I know about love and healthy relationships has apparently all been a scam. If these two crazy drunk kids can’t make it, who can? WHO CAN! {shakes fist at Bunim-Murray for false hope and hair gel dreams}


As two of the stars of MTV’s runaway hit (and one of my all-time favorite shows–don’t judge), we watched Rawn and Sammi fall in love, break up, make-out, cheat on each other, and pretty much claws each other’s eyes out while ruining hundreds of dollars worth of personal property, only to wake up the next morning to do it all over again. Ahhh, memories.

Now, the uber-fit, ultra-tan couple of five years has reportedly broken up for good. Rawn recently attended the premier of Jenni “J-Woww” Farley’s new movie (yes, it’s a real thing) Jersey Shore Massacre where he shared the sad news with People.

Citing distance as the cause of the break-up with Sammi, he tells the site, “We were drifting apart and not really spending any time together,” revealing that the duo parted ways over two months ago.

Rawn says he isn’t ready to date again, admitting, “I still care about her. She’s a great girl, but we were growing distant. It was for the best.”

For the time being, Rawn is content doting over the newest addition to the Jersey Shore family…J-Woww’s five-week-old daughter Meilani with fiance Roger Mathews. He jokes, “She’s really squirmy and looks just like Roger!”

We’ve seen this before. I give it three weeks until Sammi and Rawn are back to publicly swapping spit. I’d bet my bedazzled Juicy Couture sweatpants on it!
