Dating Violence on Jersey Shore

Dating Violence on Jersey Shore

Jersey Shore fans, make sure you tune in for tomorrow’s new episode. As shown in the season preview, Sammi gets violent with Ronnie. The house is shocked when Sammi punches Ronnie in the face.

The drama with Sammi and Ronnie has been going on for multiple seasons now. Things reach a boiling point when Sammi takes it to an overtly physically abusive level and threatens to leave the house. This is certainly not the first time the couple has been abusive towards each other. There have been many examples of dating abuse ranging from physical (Ronnie pushing Sammi) to psychological (constant bickering, power games, guilting, etc.) Both Ronnie and Sammi have exhibited unhealthy dating behaviors in the past. This particular showing of the toxic relationship will have most viewers wondering — what’s left for this volatile pair?

As you watch, pay attention to how the fight escalates. Look for signs of intimidation, control and aggression. How do the housemates react? How would you respond if you were one of them? After the show, we’ll discuss what happened in more detail.

Will you be tuning in?

  1. IT GLORIFIES THE VIOLENCE, makes it the NORM , desensitizing is a training method used in the military, so if we want to condone this behavior why not show it on Prime Time.

  2. I so agree, There is no excuse for violence. On Jersey Shore Sammie was so wrong for hitting Ronnie because if that would have been Ronnie who hit her, the whole show would have been on CNN. I know what its like to be in an Abusive Relationship. Its wasnt physical but it was Emotional/Mental Abuse and that is so “WORST” you can heal from phyical worns but the Emotional/Mental Abuse is External.

    if any 1 wants to talk, im all ears.
