Jersey Shore’s Ronnie Ortiz-Magro Hospitalized in Florida (UPDATE)
UPDATE: Sammi Sweetheart stayed by her boyfriend's side in Florida for nearly two weeks, but her rep confirms that they are back in New York and he is doing much better. Ronnie has even been tweeting, and today he wrote, "Well good morning cold a$$ weather! Doc appointments today #FML #RecoverySucks." Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery!
Check back to Wetpaint Entertainment for updates on both Sam and Ron, and feel free to tweet well wishes at him: @MTVRonnie!
ORIGINAL STORY: He can still fist-pump, just very lightly for now.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was admitted to a Florida hospital recently — not for fighting or any other kind of shenanigans related to clubbing — but for kidney stones. Unfortunately, a dose of Ron Ron Juice isn't going to fix this problem.
Ronnie's rep told People: "Ronnie was admitted to an Orlando area hospital late Saturday night. He's in a lot of pain and is expected to remain there for several days."
Luckily for Ron though, he'll have some comfort as he recovers in the form of his longtime girlfriend, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, as she is on her way to be at his side.
Ronnie had been in Orlando on business in an effort to promote his new alcohol line, Smush Cocktails, at the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America Convention. At some point during the process, Ronnie's rep reveals "he started feeling uncomfortable," upon which he was taken to a hospital.
"It's a very painful condition, but he's being treated."
