'Jersey Shore' Couple Ronnie and Sammi -- Off Again

David Livingston/Getty Images(PARIS) -- It seems that the romance of Florence, Italy, has not lasted for Jersey Shore couple Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Sammi Giancola. The fiery pair has once again called an end to their relationship. Ronnie confirmed to Us Weekly that it's over after two turbulent years, saying, “We are not together.”

Ortiz-Magro’s pal on the show, Paul “Pauly D” Del Vecchio, says that he likes a single Ronnie: “When he’s doing his relationship thing, I let him do his thing, I don’t get involved. When he’s with Sammi he’s a different person. She’s a difficult woman!”

Ronnie and Sammi had an explosive moment on Jersey Shore’s third season in fall 2010 when he stomped on her glasses and called her a “spoiled b***h,” which led to a breakup. However the pair got back together again for season four, filmed in Italy.

Jersey Shore’s Sammi: The Sweetest ACTRESS You’ll Ever Meet?

ABC News Radio(NEW YORK) -- Jersey Shore’s Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola is branching out.

“To be honest, I’m focusing on me and my brand and wherever that takes me,” the 24-year-old Hazlet, N.J., native tells ABC News Radio.

And where it’s taking her – for now – is on a press tour promoting her new perfume, “Dangerous.”

“It’s something that I worked really long and hard on, and it’s something I’m extremely proud of and I put a lot of heart and soul into it, and I love it.”

Giancola says she really wants to be an entrepreneur.

“I just want to get into clothing and things that I really love,” she said.

But what the self-proclaimed “sweetest bitch you’ll ever meet” is truly interested in -- beyond her role on MTV’s wildly-popular reality series Jersey Shore -- is acting.

“It wasn’t until ... I did a [6 Hour Power] commercial and ... some other things like The Three Stooges ... that I really got a taste of it and I really loved it,” she said. “And now I’m like, ‘Wow, maybe I should think about this,’ because it came easy to me."

“I loved it!” Sammi said, referring to her on-screen cameos. “So, why not do something that I love?”

Giancola says her inspiration to act comes from Angelina Jolie because, “she just does a lot.”

“I like her movies that she does. I like her as an actress. She’s involved in a lot of charities. I like the life that she lives,” Sammi said.

Giancola’s life has been on full display since the series debuted in December 2009 -- and her on-again, off-again relationship with Jersey Shore co-star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has been one of the show's most galvanizing plot points.

If you’re wondering whether the pair is still together – spoiler alert – they are, indeed.

“We both kind of grew up and became adults,” Giancola told ABC News Radio. “Towards the end of Italy we really made it work. We were able to communicate. We got over the fighting issue.  We kind of really figured out what we wanted in our lives.”

Jersey Shore fans will see the two together in season five, but the drama, she reveals, will shift away from her own relationship and onto others.

“The drama’s really going to unfold on some other people and it’s going to be very dramatic.”

Giancola says she’s aware of the reputation she and her castmates have now, based on their on-screen portrayal -- and that, she says, is just fine.

“That show makes everybody look bad at times, including myself, and it makes me look pretty bad,” she admits. “Let’s be honest – it makes me look pretty bad, but I go with it because that’s what I chose to do and that’s me.”
