Yet, when MTV made the very wise decision to reunite the Jersey Shore cast for the wildly successful Family Vacation revival that began airing in the spring of , one of the show's stars made the equally wise decision to sit the whole thing out.
And one can't help but feel like if Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola hadn't passed up the opportunity to revisit her glory days, we might not be here today, celebrating the news of her engagement to boyfriend of two years, Christian Biscardi. After all, if Giancola had been forced to re-enter the life of ex-boyfriend Ronnie Ortiz-Magro just as it was beginning to, to steal his own term, spiral out of control, there's no telling what might have happened.
Jersey Shore Romance Report. As even the most fair weather fans of Jersey Shore 's original run can tell you, the turbulent romance between Giancola and Ortiz-Magro was one of the dominating storylines that played out during those six seasons, with the pair stuck in a never-ending "break up to make up" cycle that would prove difficult to break even after cameras stopped rolling. Who will ever forget the season three blowout that saw Ortiz-Magro destroy his girlfriend's belongings as he threw a bed that she happened to be standing on? Though the show wrapped in , the drama surrounding these two wouldn't officially come to an end until when, after giving their romance its umpteenth chance around her 29th birthday that March, Ortiz-Magro joined the cast of E!
teispikofdoli.tk As she told E! News at the Fire Island premiere party that April, she was very much attracted to the fact that her new beau wasn't in the public eye, allowing her to keep her love life private for one. Disappointing, sure, at first blush, but not surprising. And a month later, as Ortiz-Magro was announcing that he and new girlfriend Jen Harley were expecting their first child after beginning dating sometime after his February split from Haqq, his ex-girlfriend kept conspicuously silent.
Silent on his impending fatherhood, silent on the show's revival—silent on everything. In fact, it wouldn't be until the week of Family Vacation 's premiere on April 5, that Giancola would finally explain her absence. As she continued in the lengthy post, she admitted that the choice wasn't one she made easily, however necessary it might have been.
I've just decided to live my life for me these days.
And as anyone who has watched Family Vacation can attest, she made the absolute right choice. While each of the stars returning alongside Ortiz-Magro have had their moments in Family Vacation — Deena Cortese 's pregnancy, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino 's legal troubles, Jenni "JWoww" Farley 's struggles with son Greyson's development—the lion's share of the drama throughout the revival's two seasons to have already aired has belonged to his wildly troubled relationship with Farley. Not only did he admit to still being in love with Giancola as he struggled to remain faithful to Farley in season one, but season two saw the new parents' partnership devolve into nasty fights, violent outbursts, and police reports.
It's no wonder she wanted nothing to do with that.
We truly wanted it to come back, but we never thought that, so when the opportunity came, she's just in a different place now. And she had real-life drama in this house, so I think she just didn't want it brought up again.
She was just over the entire situation. She grew…she didn't really want to bring up the past. Of course, aside from Ortiz-Magro's still-lingering feelings for her, Giancola's presence was still felt in those first few Miami-based episodes of Family Vacation , courtesy of Paul "Pauly D" Delvecchio 's creepy life-like doll replacement that even uttered some of the missing roommate's infamous lines from the show's original run.
Say it with us now, "Ronnnnn, stahhhhp! News at the show's NYC premiere. Though, it's got to be preferred to the alternative, which would've seen Giancola trying to keep a new, healthy relationship alive while being trapped in close quarters with her ex's whole situation.
While her former roommates have once again become MTV's biggest stars, Giancola's kept a relatively low profile. And it's that devotion to a quieter life that's allowed her to break the cycle of toxicity she found herself trapped in, leading her to the stable relationship she'd so clearly been longing for since her early days on Jersey Shore.
And that's what makes the news of Biscardi's proposal feel all the more exciting, all the more deserved. Yesterday was the best day of my life! I get to marry my other half, best friend and soulmate," she wrote on Instagram, announcing her happy news. And while she may no longer be a current Jersey Shore cast member, the effusive reactions to her engagement courtesy of her former co-stars at press time, Ortiz-Magro had yet to weight in proves that she'll always be a part of the family. We love it. Angelina Pivarnick may have been referred to as a " dirty little hamster " by Jersey Shore co-star Mike Sorrentino, but one thing she's not is dumb!
Wagner High School, so we'll go with that for now.

As we now know, Pivarnick made her reality television return on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation in Thankfully, she was able to play nice on the popular reboot and went from being the most-hated cast member to a more tolerable addition to the entertaining MTV program. But if she slips up and ticks off her co-stars again, we're sure she could suit back up in her EMT uniform and easily head back out into the workforce!
When Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino made his first appearance on Jersey Shore , he admittedly came across as a total " gorilla juicehead " with a questionable IQ.

But in real life, Sorrentino was very studious. The reality TV star later transferred to both Kean University and Monmouth College, and told the media outlet that he always had an interest in the business world and even worked in the mortgage industry for a bit before the market crashed.

He and his longtime girlfriend, Lauren Pesce, met in math class at their community college, according to People.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has had some bumpy relationships play out on television. Perhaps the TV star's parents foreshadowed his penchant for getting into messy situations with women, because as a teenager, he attended an all-boys high school. Hard to imagine, right?
According to Entertainment Weekly , Ortiz-Magro was far from being a star pupil. In fact, he was described as a "lazy student who was a regular in the detention hall.

Another incident involved his friend lending him his grandmother's Toyota Camry, in which Ortiz-Magro reportedly lost his virginity while his friends watched from afar. Um, okay. Moving right along After high school, Ortiz-Magro skipped college and worked in real estate with his dad, according to CNN.
