Former ‘Jersey Shore’ cast mate, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, has been rushed to a hospital following the discovery he has kidney stones. While promoting his new alcohol beverage in Orlando, FL , Saturday night, the reality star was experiencing pain in his lower abdomen and was taken to a near-by hospital.
He has since been hospitalized and will likely spend several days there.
A rep for the reality star confirmed the news to People magazine stating, “Ronnie started feeling uncomfortable”, at the event for Smush Cocktails, “He was admitted to an Orlando area hospital late Saturday night. He’s in a lot of pain and is expected to remain there for several days. It’s a very painful condition but he’s being treated,” the rep adds.
His girlfriend and former ‘Jersey Shore’ co-star Sammi Giancola is by his side.
No word on whether his Jersey Shore cast mates will also make the trip to visit him. We hope he makes a speedy recovery.
