Ronnie Ortiz-Magro’s ‘Jersey Shore’ Roommates Say He Won’t Answer Their Texts; Criticize Jen Harley for Showing Off Bruises for Photographers

“Sorry, I guess I didn’t hear my phone!”

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has reportedly agreed to extend the protective order that keeps him away from his estranged baby-mama Jen Harley, but it looks likes he may be distancing himself from his Jersey Shore family, too. 

As The Ashley told you earlier this week, Ronnie has been ordered by the LAPD to stay 100 feet away from Jen following his arrest for felony domestic violence after allegedly striking Jen and chasing her with a knife while holding their 18-month-old daughter Ariana. Ronnie was later charged with kidnapping after reportedly locking himself and Ariana in the couple’s Airbnb.

On Friday, TMZ reported that “Ronnie is willing to stay clear of his family pending his arraignment on felony kidnapping charges.”

The protective order— which demands Ronnie stay at least 100 yards away from Jen— also requires him to stay away from his daughter for the time being.

While Ronnie’s ‘Jersey Shore’ family has stayed relatively quiet on their co-star’s latest legal woes, the subject has been addressed on Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s podcast, It’s Happening with Snooki & Joey. This week,  Snooki invited Mike ‘The Situation” Sorrentino to discuss the latest on Ronnie—- including the fact that he’s basically ghosting the entire cast at the moment.

“Listen, I pray for him and Jen, I pray for the baby, [Ronnie’s] future… ,” Mike said during the podcast. 

Mike went on to reveal that Ronnie is “not answering texts,” to which Snooki added, “he’s not answering any of us.” 

“Yeah, I’ve been texting for days,” Mike continued. “ … At first I was a bit stern and I was like, ‘Wake the f**k up and call me, we’re worried,’ and he didn’t answer back. Then I went with a little softer approach, like, ‘Bro, I’m here for you.’” 

“Is something wrong with this duck phone?”

Snooki said she took the latter approach in her efforts to get a response from her co-star, but still hadn’t heard anything either. She did, however, say that the executive producer of Jersey Shore Family Vacation has been in contact with him. 

The conversation on the podcast then switched to the recent TMZ photos of Jen displaying large bruises on both her shoulder and thigh, which Snooki believes to be a little suspicious. 

“ … She’s out to lunch with Ariana, she’s wearing a tank top and shorts and she has bruises everywhere,” Snooki said. “I feel like she went out intentionally to get a photo of her.” 

“You don’t have to be wearing a tank top, showing off your bruises and the bruise on your leg,” she continued. “She’s wearing booty shorts to show it off. Like, ‘Girl, you can go out with your daughter and have lunch but cover those up so it’s not a thing.’ She wants it to be a thing.”

  1. Snookie just remembered you was once out of control too so dont throw stones at other ppl..you’re not in that woman house and to say things as if she’s a liar is not for you to judge..he is a man you won’t want your daughter to date rite? So stfu and leave Jen alone.

  3. Felony kidnapping? Sounds like jail time for Ronnie. He should’ve stayed away from that psycho Jen. Everyone told him this would happen…


  4. Shutting everyone out of his life doesn’t sound good (it is a warning sign of suicide). I’m glad the cast is still trying to reach out.


  5. Despite Ronnie’s blind insistence, Jen is not his family, she’s his baby mama. Stop forcing it, Rahn! If it were meant to be, it wouldn’t be this awful.


  6. In Jen’s defense, if any of you have ever had this type of “road rash” type of injury, wearing any type of clothes over that injury will cause that garment to “stick” to said festering wound. Now, one could bandage said injury, but fastest heal time is to leave said injury open to the air. I also recommend a little pool time to heal said wound faster.

    Thank you, Dr. Nibs.


  7. look at me everybody! i’m a victim! i get beat up! and when i don’t feel like a victim anymore we’ll be back together! they’re both disgusting trash. where is her other kid? worry about the children that didnt ask to be brought into this world instead of a man. especially a no good man.

    keep showing off those bruises with trashy clothing and remind the general public how you’re not providing a safe environment for your daughter time & time again.


    1. He’s with his father. Thank goodness he can get away from her and the toxic environment she brings into his life. Think about what it must take for a mother to not have primary physical custody of her child.


      1. Does the Dad have full time custody? I hope he’s a decent, stable adult for that poor kid. God only knows what he’s seen and heard through the years. Didn’t Jen beat him up too?


        1. Jen does have previous arrests, going back several years, for domestic battery. Maybe one of those was also her son’s father. This is all public info that’s easily searched. She definitely has a history of being an abuser.


      2. I agree a victim should not have to hide injuries. But…when you know the paparrazi (tmz) are wanting pictures just to exploit you for a story, then maybe you should rethink where you go for awhile.

        Also shes an abuser too!


  8. So is Jen crazy? Yes. Did she go out in public with her daughter dressed in a way to get attention? Possibly. And if that’s the case that’s very trashy and I feel so bad for their daughter. Having said that, it does not take away from the fact that Ron is an ABUSER.
    He still (allegedly) put his hands on a woman. He still (allegedly) left bruises on her body. Jen being a jerk doesn’t make Ron any less an asshole. I’m sick of his cast mates down playing that Ronnie is abusive and violent, for like 10 years now. The cast really are enablers if you think about it.


  9. He beat her up but Snooki doesn’t have an issue with that, the problem for her is that Jen isn’t covering the proof of Ron’s aggressions? She didn’t have an issue with Ronnie showing everybody when Jen beat HIM up and left him with a bloody lip.
    Shame on you, Snooki.


  10. A victim of domestic abuse shouldn’t have to cover up their bruises. It’s hot out, she shouldn’t have to hide the fact that she was abused. These are real marks from violent actions and it should be a wake up call.

    I know they both have a history of being violent, this cycle has got to stop for that poor baby.
