Ronnie Ortiz Magro said he was going to return to “Jersey Shore” for the upcoming season … but was nowhere to be found when his reality TV family recently started filming.
TMZ got these photos of some “Jersey Shore” stars shooting scenes on Easter Sunday at a Southern California winery…and there’s no sign of Ronnie.
Here’s who was at the Cordiano winery in Escondido for filming… Vinny, Billiards, Deena, JWoww and mike the situation …plus a few wives, husbands, girlfriends and boyfriends. The other main actor who wasn’t there was Pauly D.
We’re told the “Jersey Shore” cast took over the winery… closing the location for filming, including the tasting room, and forcing everyone to order food and wine from a separate bar.
It’s interesting that Ronnie is still out of action…remember, he told us in August that he was sober and plan to come back on the MTV show for the second half of the 5th season.
It’s possible Ronnie wants to avoid shooting scenes at a winery…but until we see him filming with his family on “Jersey Shore,” it’s fair to wonder if he’s really coming back.
