Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has been working on himself for years since his time on the hit reality show Jersey Shore. The MTV star has had his fair share of legal drama and mental health struggles, so it's no surprise that he is taking things slow and steady.
Ortiz-Magro is focusing on his mental well-being and raising his daughter, Ariana. He recently opened up on Instagram about his struggle with depression, which was very brave of him to do. It's important to talk about depression and anxiety so that others can seek help and know they are not alone.
He hasn't been a part of the cast of the new season of the reboot, Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, which premiered on Thursday. But he did make a cameo in an episode of the spinoff to tell his former roommates, including Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, that he's ready to return to the show full-time.
Sorrentino tells Page Six's Virtual Reali-Tea podcast that he's happy to see Ronnie back on the show because he's been doing so much work on himself after all of the legal troubles and mental health issues. He says that he would check in with his former co-star to see how he was doing and now they are "really close" again.
Sorrentino also shares that he's excited about the fact that Ronnie is going to open up his own sneaker store in Miami. It seems like a great fit for the star, who once posted a video of a room in his house that was dedicated to his massive sneaker collection.
