“Jersey Shore’s” Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro were still a couple in last night’s Season 5 premiere of their hit MTV series, but the 24-year-old says their rollercoaster relationship has taken yet another turn since the show wrapped.
“Things happen and after the [new] season, we were just drifting apart a little bit, we were traveling, doing our own thing,” Sammi told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Friday’s Access Hollywood Live.
“And now I’m single,” she continued.
However, Sammi stopped short of saying she would never date Ronnie again.
“Today, I’m single, who knows what will happen tomorrow,” she continued. “He’s actually my best friend and we still have a great positive relationship… I love him still, just things didn’t work out.”
And what about co-stars Pauly D and Deena – who were two thirds of an unrequited love triangle on the season premiere – are they an item?
“They have a great friendship and all it is, is strictly friends,” Sammi explained.
“Jersey Shore” airs Thursdays at 10 PM on MTV.
