JERSEY Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro claimed he is set to make his return to the popular MTV series and he’s four months sober following his latest arrest.
The cast is currently filming the upcoming season without the longtime reality star.
The 35-year-old told TMZ: “I feel great, man. Four months sober, quit drinking.”
Ronnie also revealed he is “living the good life” with his fiancée Saffire Matos and his 3-year-old daughter, Ariana, who he shares with his ex Jen Harley.
While the MTV star claimed to be back on a good track, he also shared he is ready to make his return to the show that launched him into fame.
He said: “I’ll be back. All the fans love me, and I love them too, so I’m gonna give them what they want, and I’ll see them soon.”
Ronnie added he will “hopefully be back by the end of season five.”
The father of one also confirmed that all of his famous castmates are “invited” to his upcoming wedding.
“We’re family at the end of the day,” he told the outlet, and added, “we grew up together, 12 years strong. They’re family forever.”
Ronnie is not with the cast at the moment, as they are filming the newest season without him.
A source previously exclusively told The Sun: “Ronnie is not filming, at least not as of now. The cast started filming a little here and there two weeks ago, but now they are all filming full force, sans Ron.”
The insider added at the time: “There is no sign that Ronnie is joining, at least not anytime soon.”
Back in May, the Jersey Shore star announced he was stepping away from the show following his arrest for domestic violence in an incident involving Saffire – which he is set to head to court for and face charges on October 13th.
‘FACING MY STRUGGLES’
He wrote on Instagram: “After talking to the team at MTV, we have mutually agreed that I will step away from the show while I seek medical treatment for mental health issues that I’ve ignored too long.
“My number one goal now is facing my struggles head on.”
In May, another source told The Sun: “The entire cast has said they don’t want to film with him because they believe he is not mentally stable. They feel he is a ticking time bomb and he makes all of them look bad.”
Ronnie is also currently on probation for his 2019 arrest for alleged domestic violence involving his ex Jen.
The former pair would split following the incident, which allegedly involved Ronnie threatening Jen with a knife, as he also “kidnapped” their daughter.
He was eventually charged with felony domestic violence, child endangerment, making criminal threats and brandishing a weapon, and agreed to a plea deal to avoid time behind bars.
