Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is missing his BFF Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. Mike is currently serving time in federal prison for tax fraud but he is getting loads of support from his Jersey Shore pal. Ronnie revealed to Us Weekly that he's been speaking to Mike "every day."
"Mike was one of the ones that was actually there for me throughout the whole process. Everything that has happened over the last year … he would always hit me up,” the 33-year-old admitted.
He revealed, "When I would feel a certain way, I would call Mike up, and he’d be like, ‘It’s going to be all right.’”
Ronnie even called up his BFF when he decided it was time to go to rehab for his alcoholism.
Ronnie explained, “He was just like, ‘I’m proud of you … I’m glad that you finally got to your point.’ He’s like, ‘People can try to push you and force you to do things that you want, but that’s not the way you get someone to do it. You have to want to do it.’”
The father of one divulged that Mike “pushed him to get healthy." "Just him being around was definitely an inspiration. When you’re the way I was – just depressed, always angry, resentful and just regretful was a big thing – you look at him and you’re like, ‘I want that. I want to be positive.’”
