Ronnie From ‘Jersey Shore’ Reveals He Completed 30 Days in Rehab
Jersey Shore's Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, 33, has revealed that he just completed a month-long rehab stint in West Palm Beach, Florida. He was released on Friday, February 10th.
He exclusively told Us Weekly that he had hit rock bottom: "I decided to go to treatment because I wanted to be a better person, a better father for my daughter."
Ronnie shares custody of his 10-month old daughter (Ariana) with his on and off girlfriend, Jen Harley. They've always had a very rocky relationship. The reality TV star says he sought treatment for depression and alcohol abuse.
He's not the only one from Jersey Shore who's battled alcohol abuse. Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has been clean & sober for over three years now. He went through an entire year of treatment (inpatient and outpatient counseling) at the Discovery Institute.
As a fan of the show, I hope they both continue down good paths...well, when The Situation gets out of prison in a few months for tax evasion.
