This week, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley are fighting for Y out of camera
One day after the The Jersey Shore Star alluded to the tension with his girlfriend on-off by posting a photo of his black eye on Instagram, Thursday's episode Jersey Shore Family The vacation captured another fight between the explosive couple.
While the cast was meeting in Atlantic City to celebrate the birthday of Pauly "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, everyone was apprehensive about Jen's arrival.
"Ron and Jen's relationship has been very toxic in recent months," Mike said. "The situation," said Sorrentino. "We've all seen it, Big Daddy Sitch would have to predict that this trip gets more crazy as the days go by."
But Ronnie insisted that they had softened things up, even though she supposedly dragged him with her car while her youngest daughter was in the back seat, which led him into a sling, only a few days before.
"We have fun," he said. "We had a great time. We are drinking, we do not argue. "
His roommates were not convinced, especially Jenni "JWoww" Farley, who predicted that Ronnie's relationship was going the same way he followed with Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola.
"At the end of the day, I know Ron will never leave a girl," he said. "He can not be the one who leaves, Sammi is the one who had to leave, and ultimately, I think Jen will be the one who has to leave."
When Jen arrived with the baby, Ronnie stopped in her hotel room to pick her up before meeting the rest of the group at dinner, leaving her daughter Ariana with Ronnie's mother.
"I love that Ariana and Jen have come to visit," he said. "I only want [the roommates] to see Jen the same way I see Jen, I see the person I fell in love with, the person who is fun and who likes to have a good time and is like me. I love her and I want everyone to see why I fell in love with her. I hope that my roommates love Jen as much as I do Jen and we can be a great dysfunctional and happy family. "
But the rest of the group barely expected it.
"Jen is the kind of girl you do not want to fight with," Pauly said. "I'm afraid of that girl."
"I think we're all a little nervous about Ron and Jen coming here," Jenni said. "I need like, four more wines, two drinks, one Xanax, and I need to find a hole to crawl."
Things were predictably tense when Jen sat for the first time at dinner, but Jenni broke the ice by teasing Jen's photo, opening the door for her to apologize to everyone.
"I know it all sounds so psychotic and crazy, but we both signed up to control our anger," Jen said. "We are trying to take the steps to not be crazy anymore."
"We want the best for you, both," said Mike. "We want Ronnie to be happy, we want to support him, no matter how much we're on probation for the last three or four years, you could be on probation and have seven other probation officers who are only taking care of our son Ron a little bit. Your baby is beautiful, so we do not want to see more of that madness. "
"I'll take it," Jen said. "I'll take the heat."
"When Jen apologized to everyone, I feel she shows the character," Ronnie said later. "She loves me and respects me enough to know that these people will be part of our lives forever, and you have to respect them."
The group offered for the couple, but it was clear that it was only for the sake of their friend.
"I do not know if the squad forgave and forgot so fast, but Jen apologizes to the group right now is a good start," said Mike. "But actions speak more than words."
"We're willing to forgive because she's Ron's baby mom," Jenni said. "But I will never forget it."
They made it through dinner and decided to stop in their suite to regroup before going to the club. The only problem? A representative of Harrah's hotel was waiting for them, because it turns out that Jen was technically banned from the property after a previous altercation with Ronnie at the company's Planet Hollywood hotel in Las Vegas. Ronnie and Jen apologized, promising it would not happen again, and the group finally left to begin the celebrations.
At first, everyone danced and enjoyed the night, including Ronnie and Jen. But when he tried to prevent her from taking another chance, the mood quickly derailed.
"And just like a clock, Ron and – I was about to say that Sam – Ron and Jen are fighting," Vinny said. "I see Jen with some really dirty looks on her face, I do not know what's going on, but I'm like, no, please, no, not tonight."
"The hard part of being with Jen and drinking with her is that she has fun and we have fun, but she does not know her limit," Ronnie said. "She does not know when to stop." She does not know how to be rational when she's intoxicated, and I think that's where our disconnect is. "
They began to argue from one side to the other, cursing each other.
"Will you stop being mean to me?" Ronnie asked.
"Stop playing the victim," Jen said.
"I'm not, I'm being real, I'm being reasonable and I'm trying to talk to you," Ronnie insisted. "You're screaming and fighting with me for no reason."
Things only intensified from there, and Jen suddenly demanded that he take her home. He begged her to calm down and stay, but she was not having it and ran away.
"I'm sick of your bulls," she said. "You cause so much drama, it's ridiculous, you're on your own, bitch."

The comrades were shocked.
"I'm amazed," said Deena. "They pretended that everything was fine, but that did not last long, only a couple of hours.
"Ron asked if he could bring Jen in. We said yes, and now, she's pretty much recovered from everyone and made the night really about her, and not about birthday celebrations," Mike said. "Your new nickname is consideration."
After returning to the hotel room, Ronnie sat down with Vinny, who urged him to reconsider the relationship.
"At this point, I do not know what to think about Jen, how much more can I deal with someone who is irrational, does not want to listen, gets angry, becomes vulgar, is becoming too much," Ronnie said. "She only gets in the mood when it's uncontrollable, and that's where I learned that I have to get away, because if I try to fight, it gets more crazy, it just can not keep happening, it's consistent with her."
"But you know that, though," Vinny said. "Brother, you can not deal with that, it's very frustrating, and I feel bad for you, because now you're like, in this period of limbo where you're like," Where is our relationship, where is my baby? "I hate it, if you really did not do anything tonight and she just did this out of nowhere, I hope you just add this to your list of why she might have problems."
"How much do you want to endure that?" Vinny pressed. "You could be like, I'll let her have her tantrums, I'll control myself forever." If you want to do that, it's fine. "
Ronnie, defeated, admitted that his plan for the weekend had gone terribly wrong.
"You know, getting Jen out with luck was to show everyone why we get along," she said. "But I feel that now, just see why we do not get along and that's not what I wanted."
