Our favorite on-again-off-again-on-again couple has officially called it quits. After nearly five years of fighting, yelling, bed-tossing and makeup sex, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola and Ronnie Magro of “Jersey Shore” are no more. Like, for real this time. Talk about epic sadness. And no more Fred Flinstone toe mentions.
We’d like to dry our tears just long enough to reflect on some of the former lovebirds’ most unforgettable moments, dating all the way back to 2009:
Their First Date (Season 1, Episode 3)
Ronnie almost lost Sammi to Mike “The Situation” during their early days in Seaside Heights. Almost. But Sammi chose Ron Ron, and the two shared an intimate evening of go-karts and mini-golf. The rest is a very rocky history.
Sammi Punches Ronnie (Season 3, Episode 5)
By the time Season 3 rolled around, we were accustomed to SamRon’s constant fighting, which went a little something like this: They go to Karma. Ronnie dance-cheats with another girl. Sammi gets jealous and breaks up with him. They have makeup sex mixed with I-love-yous. Repeat. Their roller-coaster relationship came to a head when Ronnie rekinkled his friendship with JWOWW, and Sammi gave him an uppercut to the jaw over it.
Ronpocalypse 1.0 (Season 3, Episode 7)
Their biggest “Jersey Shore” fight focused on the usual — cheating, jealousy and gossip — but culminated with Ronnie completely trashing their room, trying to flip the bed with Sammi still on it. Sammi left the shore house but quickly returned. Smush-room makin’ up ensued.
SamRon’s Rooftop Confession (Season 4, Episode 3)
Bickering aside, one of the couple’s sweetest moments occurred on a romantic rooftop in Florence. We heaved skeptical, we’re-happy-for-you sighs at the duo and braced ourselves.
All Of Season 5 (um, Season 5)
SamRon rarely fought during Season 5! Could this be It? We hoped and prayed, and JWOWW even predicted an engagement! And then our dreams were shattered. We’ll miss you, guys. Wishing you all the best in your future love endeavors!
