Jersey Shore’s Ronnie Ortiz-Magro Still Loves Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola! …And In Other News, The Sky Is Blue And Water Is Wet

Raise your hand if you didn’t know this was still a thing!!

In the worst type of Groundhog Day-style movie ever, it appears that Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is STILL in love with former castmate and flame Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola.

G, T, L: Gym, Tan, Love Sammi forever… even when she doesn’t love you back, bro.

As we’ve been reporting, Ronnie had an explosive flame-out with baby momma Jen Harley that played out in a SUPER ugly way on social media over the last couple days.

Now, sources are telling Us Weekly that one of the root issues here is Ronnie still loves Sammi… and that hasn’t changed for, like, ever.

The source lays it out with maybe the most obvious quote in the history of source quotes (below):

“Ronnie still loves Sam. Everyone knows it.”

Uh… ya think?! Cabs are here for Captain Obvious!!

Related: At Least The Situation Has His Shit Together!

But beyond that, the source goes on to detail some similarities between Sammi and Jen, at least as far as Ronnie’s behavior is concerned (below):

“This is totally Ronnie’s style. This is what he does. Look at what he did to Sam! He never considered her feelings, cheated on her and lied to her face. The girls always forgive him and take him back.”

Not wrong!!!

Remember, Sam purposely avoided the Jersey Shore reboot like the plague and opted not to beat up the beat this season on MTV simply because of Ronnie’s presence there.

Actually grown up now, Sammi didn’t want to mess up her current life — and relationship — if things with Ronnie took a left turn.

And now here we are, with the 32-year-old Ortiz-Magro apparently done with his baby momma for good… and still pining over a woman he’s just never going to be able to be with again. Yikes…

Photos: Ronnie And Jen Traded Insults On Social Media!

That’s all we’ve got for now, Perezcious readers — we’ll keep you up to date on as much Ron and Sam drama as you can handle as it comes.

Until then… it’s t-shirt time!!!

Neri Oxman Steps Out Amid News of Brad Pitt Romance

Looking chic. Brad Pitt’s new girlfriend, Neri Oxman, was spotted out and about on Wednesday, April 18, heading to teach a class at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The MIT professor, 42, was walking through the campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts, dressed in a black turtleneck, trench coat and matching pants. The award-winning architectural designer wore her hair up in a loose bun with dark sunglasses and carried a copy of The Voyager Golden Record.

As Us Weekly previously reported, Oxman has been quietly seeing the War Machine actor, 54, for six months. An insider close to the actor told Us that Pitt has been “glowing around her.”

The Oscar-winning actor first reached out to her after he saw a line of her 3-D printed chaise lounges, and headed to meet with her at MIT, where she teaches media arts and sciences at the Massachusetts school’s Media Lab. “Brad’s absolutely smitten by her,” the source revealed exclusively to Us. “Their chemistry is off the charts.”

“They got romantically involved almost right away,” the insider continued. “He’s been going to great lengths to make sure he’s not spotted by prying eyes.” The pair have also traveled together internationally on several occasions since they started dating.

The Inglorious Bastards actor’s pal told Us that Pitt fell for Oxman’s intelligence and her charm, and not just her appearance. “Neri is a very passionate, extremely smart and talented woman. She is very extroverted, outgoing, vivacious and loving,” the insider told Us. “Men and women love Neri. She has a way of making you feel as if you’re the only person in a crowded room,” the pal added. “Being around Neri is intoxicating as if you’re flying high above the mountains.”

Oxman is the first woman Pitt has been linked with since his split from Angelina Jolie in September 2016. The Mr. & Mrs. Smith actors — who are the parents of Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 9 — are currently working on finalizing their divorce.

Pink Is People’s 2018 Beautiful Issue Cover Star — & She Totally ‘Laughed Out Loud’ Upon Learning The News!

People magazine has selected 2018’s “Beautiful Issue” cover star!

*Drumroll* It’s… Pink!

Related: Pink Forgot The Lyrics To Who Knew In Concert

On Wednesday, the mag announced that the 38-year-old singer would be this year’s honoree. The So What artist posed for the cover alongside her equally beautiful children, six-year-old Willow Sage Hart and 15-month Jameson Moon Hart. Be sure to ch-ch-check out the stunning cover for yourself (below)!

She might be a Grammy-winning pop star, but #TheBeautifulIssue cover star #Pink admits she’s just taking it “day by day” when it comes to being a mom to her two kids. Tap the link in the bio to read this week’s cover story. | 📷: @peggysirotaA post shared by People Magazine (@people) on Apr 18, 2018 at 4:00am PDT

So cute!!! And the hitmaker certainly had the best reaction to learning her “Beautiful” news, as she told Ellen DeGeneres that she “laughed out loud.”

She continued:

“I immediately turned to whoever was in the room, and said, ‘Did you ever think this was as good as it gets?’ … I feel more beautiful [now]—and I have decided that for the whole week that the magazine is out, no one is allowed to look me directly in the eyes.”

LOLz. AH-Mazing!

Of course, being a real AF pop star, Pink had plenty of jokes about her People cover. Specifically, she poked fun at son Jameson’s facial expression:

“I think, honestly, it was Jameson and Willow that secured that deal for me. I’m wondering if in 20 years if Jameson’s gonna be upset about his first cover. I mean, it’s pretty good.”

Too funny.

As for her daughter, Pink revealed to Ellen that young Willow is still coping with body image issues. As you surely know, Pink made a rousing speech about beauty standards at the 2017 MTV VMAs, after Willow expressed some doubts about her own looks.

Pink relayed:

“She goes, ‘Yeah well I still feel that way.’ I was like, ‘For what? That you’re ugly?’ She’s like, ‘Yup, I just want you to know I still feel that way. Nothing you did helped.’ I was like, ‘Thanks, babe. Well you know we all feel that way sometimes.’ She’s like, ‘We do?’ I’m like, ‘We’re not doing this again. I have to go.’ “

How sad! Nonetheless, per Pink’s People cover issue, she’s doing everything in her power to keep her kids “label-less.” On her gender neutral environment at home, the chart topper explained:

“Absolutely. [But] I feel like gender-neutral is in itself a label and I’m label-less. I don’t like labels at all so I believe that a woman and a girl can do anything.”

Hear! Hear! Also, we’re just glad that Pink’s keeping her daughter positive. She concluded with Ellen:

“There’s nothing wrong with beautiful and there’s nothing wrong with beautiful on the inside, beautiful on the outside. It’s all different shades, it’s all different sizes. It means whatever it means to you. I think on one hand my sense of humor is the best part about all of it and on the other hand, it’s a wonderful time that we’re celebrating all different kinds of people.”

Well said. For Pink’s celebration with Ellen, be sure to ch-ch-check out the clip (below)!

What do YOU think? Is Pink the most beautiful woman in the world??
