Jersey Shore’s Ronnie Gets Involved in Another Fight … Sorta – Exclusive
Last week, Ronnie and other Jersey Shore cast members were allegedly involved in a massive bar brawl at Seaside Heights hotspot Bamboo. But this Saturday night (June 16), Ron will be involved in a fight of a completely different kind. Mixed martial arts fighter Scott Heckman will don clothes from Ronnie’s Smush Brand Apparel during a match at the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, PA.
“Smush Brand is sponsoring Scott,” Heckman’s manager, Gerald Grube, tells Wetpaint Entertainment in an exclusive statement. “The phrase we picked for Scott to wear on his shorts is ‘One Shot, Bro.’”
“We were approached by Team Heckman,” Ronnie’s business partner, James Gisondi, confirms. “Ron and I are looking to eventually launch a fitness and athletic line and we loved the fact that MMA is such an up-and-coming sport. To us, it seemed like a good match.”
Unfortunately, Ron won’t be able to make the event since he’s tied up filming Season 6. But once he’s wrapped, Gisondi says he and Ron have big plans to expand their empire. “Right now, Smush Brand Apparel is doing really well,” Gisondi explains. “But we’re looking to rebrand his other line, Jersey Laundry. It’s going to incorporate more things you wear during the winter like hoodies, jeans and baseball caps. And then there’s Smush cocktails, his low-calorie drink that’s going to be launching this summer. So keep a look out.”
With all these new businesses, Ronnie will really be pulling in a nice salary. Maybe he can start thinking of buying a ring for Sammi with all his new cash? Here’s hoping!
