How long will this last? "Jersey Shore's" resident off-again, on-again couple Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, 26, and Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, 25, are back on — and this time, they're moving in together! The two — who weren't together when the reunion show for the last season was filmed — have purchased a love nest (or hornet's nest, depending on the day of the week) where they'll reside without their fellow castmates, according to HollywoodLife.com. "We actually went to look at apartments this weekend, and found something, [so] we are moving to New York [City]," Ronnie tells the website. As the gym rat explains, the couple's latest split was more about putting their romance on hold rather than ending it. "It was more that we both took a break after Italy and Jersey," Ortiz-Magro said. "And we've both grown up as people. We both had to find ourselves. We got to the point where you if you can't make someone else happy, you can't be happy. We are very happy with ourselves and each other."
Remember this moment, because as fans of the show know, things aren't always so picturesque for the pair. They often argue, sometimes violently, like they did in the February 2011 episode where Ortiz-Magro tossed Giancola's belongings out of their room. He even smashed her glasses! The reason? She danced with another guy at the club that night. After that, Giancola had to be held back by the male roomates as she tried to attack her beau. Even before that incident, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley wrote an anonymous note to Giancola about Ortiz-Magro's antics, which they hoped would drive the two apart for good. Just two seasons in, they were more sick of the couple's drama than the rest of us!
Despite their rocky past, Giancola insists that the way the relationship is depicted on the show isn't entirely accurate. "It's only an hour a week," she says of the reality series "There's a whole bunch more to the story. By being in a relationship, you go through a lot of ups and downs. At the time, it was a rough spot for me. But me and Ron, nobody got to see that we had a real connection. There was a lot [of reasons] for me to stay with him."
Do you think Sammi and Ronnie can make it work?
