It appears that the reality series Famously Single is where the boys of Jersey Shore go to convert from being DTF to DTC (Down To Commit). In Season 1 we saw Pauly D find love with former Danity Kane singer Aubrey O’Day, and in Season 2 we apparently get to see Pauly’s fellow Guido Ronnie Magro fall for Khloe Kardashian’s gal pal Malika Haqq!
The couple made their relationship status officially public in a statement to E! News. “We had a lot in common from the start and it was an instant friendship. The attraction quickly became a mutual romance,” they jointly reveal. “Our support for one another through this challenging experience made us strong in a very short period of time. We had an opportunity to really get to know each other living in such close quarter.”
Sow how are those close to Ronnie and Malika taking the news? Quite well apparently! “Our family and friends are aware that we are together and extremely supportive of our relationship.”
The announcement clears up a lot of speculation after Ronnie posted the photo at the top of this post on Instagram in which he can be seen kissing a woman whose identity was unknown at the time. The hash tag happy Ronnie captioned the photo with “#Happiness#FamouslySinlgeSeason2ComingSoon #EChannel #March#MakeSureaYouKeepUp #NahItAintSamSoStopAsking ???”
Prior to that picture, Ronnie has posted numerous others with Malika — but they also had other cast members from Famously Single Season 2, so no suspicions were aroused. However, I think this photo might should have tipped some of us off as Ronnie and Malika clearly look all couplish:
Congratulations to Ronnie and Malika! Now we just need to get Vinny on Famously Single Season 3. (I think The Situation has a steady girlfriend, right?)
We’ll wrap up this post with LOTS more behind-the-scenes photos of Ronnie, Malika and the rest of the Famously Single Season 2 cast, which includes The Bachelorette‘s Chad Johnson, Dancing With The Stars‘ Karina Smirnoff, #RichKids of Beverly Hills‘ Dorothy Wang, Flavor of Love‘s Tiffany Pollard, fitness model David Mcintosh, and “British personality” Calum Best (who was also on Season 1).
