The “Jersey Shore” reunion featured some never-before-seen footage of Sammi GiancolaMike “The Situation” Sorrentino that threatened to derail her relationship with Ronnie Magro. Really? More Sammi-Ronnie drama? We never would have imagined. sharing an intimate conversation with
When host Julissa Bermudez first announces the footage, Sammi seems very upset, and eventually walks off the set. Ronnie follows her. She heads into the bathroom, where she tells a producer she’s embarrassed, but will return to the stage. When she comes back, she says she had “an emotional breakdown” but steels herself to watch the footage.
In it, Sammi tells The Situation that she was indeed flirting with “The Cop” because he was hot — that was the same night that she got mad at Ronnie for dancing with another girl, and later accused him of fooling around with Jenni “JWoww” Farley. The Situation tells Sammi that she has to think about whether the person she’s with is worth her time — basically attempting to undermine Ronnie — and gives her a quick kiss near her mouth.
It doesn’t seem all that damning, but Ronnie is pretty angry about it: “It really makes no difference to me. I cut girls quicker than barbers do, to be honest with you, so she could be right down the list if she wants. I really don’t care.” Sammi is close to tears — “You can go to the bathroom and cry now if you want,” Ronnie sneers — but says the conversation happened early on in their stay.
Ronnie is not so much angry about the conversation, but about how hard Sammi came down on him when she thought he and JWoww hooked up. He says Sammi is a liar because she would tell him how much she disliked The Situation, and now he sees her having private little talks with him.
“You’re going to ruin this?,” Sammi asks him.
Ronnie: “You. You. You.”
“Is that that bad?” Sammi asks about the footage. (This, from the Queen of Overstatement. Remember her reaction to the Fred Flintstone toe remark? “That is like, the worst thing you can possible do.”)
Angelina Pivarnick — remember her? — calls out that this is just going to blow over like the rest of their spats. “We’re, like, done,” Sammi announces. “If he’s going to ruin something that’s so good over that, then that’s his own problem.” At the break, Sammi walks back offstage and tells someone that she’s going to need a ride home tonight.
