If you’ve been watching Jersey Shore Family Vacation, you’re probably well aware that the relationship between Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley is far from healthy.
Ron is prone to fits of anger (or “ron-pages,” if you prefer), but for the most part, fans have piled the bulk of the blame on Jen — and for good reason.
After all, this is the woman who dragged Ron in her car during an argument, leaving him badly injured.
The cause of the altercation was Jen’s previous batsh-t behavior, which includes disappearing with their daughter and sending Ron on a mad search across Las Vegas, like he was stuck in some completely non-funny version of The Hangover.
Needless to say, Jen and Ron have a lot of problems.
In fact, it sounds as though there are only two paths forward for little Ariana’s parents at this point:
They can either break up or begin therapy and commit themselves to the hard work of tearing their relationship down to its foundations and beginning anew.
Of course, Jen doesn’t see it that way.
She thinks the solution to her many romantic problems is easy and obvious:
According to Jen, it’s all Ron’s fault, and he can fix everything by simply quitting Jersey Shore.
Cutting off one’s sole source of income shortly after welcoming a child may sound foolish, but Jen explained the brilliance behind her plan while she was bored on a recent flight and decided to host an Instagram AMA:
“So bored! Another 2 hours left!! Entertain me! Ask away, be nice,” Jen wrote.
Fans were quick to oblige, and while most of the questions were along the lines of “WTF is your deal?” some offered more nuanced inquiries:
“I know you won’t answer this but how do you like being on Jersey Shore,” one fan asked.
“Honestly the show has been the route [sic] to all our problems,” Jen answered.
“Would you want Ron to quit JS to make ur relationship better and peaceful?” another asked.
“DUH,” Jen replied, in not-at-all-obnoxious fashion.
In case there was any doubt about Jen’s distaste for the show that made her (in)famous, she went on to make it quite clear that she’s not a fan:
“How do you feel seeing yourself on Jersey Shore?” another follower asked.
“I legit do not watch the show.”
Hmm … you might want to tune in this week, Jen.
The show will give you an idea as to why total strangers cross the street when they see you approaching.
Just a thought.
