Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino got hitched on November 1. All of the cast of “Jersey Shore” was in attendance except for one person — Samantha ‘Sammi Sweetheart’ Giancola.
The Situation spoke to People Magazine about the beautiful ceremony where he wed his longtime girlfriend, Lauren Pesce.
When asked if Sammi Sweetheart made the guest list he explained: “No, she wasn’t there. She was invited [and] she sent a gift, a very heartfelt, sweet gift.”
The reason why is apparently because the 31-year-old didn’t want to be captured by “JSFV” cameras.
“The cameras were there, she opted not to come,” the new husband added.
Sammi explained in the past why she didn’t join the MTV reboot.
“I have chosen not to join the show this season because I am at a completely different place in my life right now focusing on my businesses and relationship. I am not the same person as I was when I was 22. At 31, I am currently extremely happy in every aspect of my life and want to avoid potentially TOXIC SITUATIONS.”
By toxic situations, Giancola likely meant coming face-to-face with her ex-boyfriend, Ronnie Magro-Ortiz. Ortiz attended the wedding with his on-again off-again girlfriend, Jen Harley.
Judging by Jen’s explosive appearances on camera and the violent altercations they’ve recently had — who knows what the mother of two would have started if she was in the same room as Ronnie’s ex who he admitted he was still in love with earlier this year.
Surprisingly, the unstable couple was well-behaved at the event.
Sorrentino revealed: “I would think Ronnie’s the next to get married. He was so happy at the wedding. No joke. Everybody was so surprised. Like, dude — is this making you get in the mood to get married?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah! It is such a beautiful day, beautiful time, and a beautiful venue. Everything was so beautiful.’ And he is in a relationship where he wants to make it work. And I think that eventually, they will.”
Word is, Ron and Jen are trying to lay low in order to retain custody of their daughter. Do you think Sammi made the right choice?
