And you thought "Jersey Shore" was a circus!
Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro attended the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Present "Built to Amaze!" VIP night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, Thursday. Not only did the two clowns amaze onlookers by simply still being together, looking incredibly happy and in love (yeah, we can't believe it either), but they astounded many as they appeared to be practicing their parenting skills!
The on-again, off-again reality star couple were accompanied by Ronnie's father, stepmom, stepsisters, and baby half-sister, Gabby. A source tells omg! that Sammi doted on the toddler, carrying her around and posing for photos.
Meanwhile, Ronnie showed himself to be quite the family man as he took his sisters to get their faces painted and had balloon animals made for them, including a giraffe and lion.
So, could all this parenting be a hint at what's to come for the pair, who've been living together since well before MTV aired its "Jersey Shore" finale in December?
Well, of that, we can't be sure, but we do know that these two don't have a current reality show, unlike the rest of their castmates. Snooki and JWoww have their joint show, Pauly D and Vinnie have their respective ones, and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has done "Celebrity Big Brother" and "Dancing With the Stars." Perhaps an engagement ring or a bun in the oven could get them a new TV deal.
Speaking of TV, Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart, Debi Mazar, and "Project Runway" judge Nina Garcia were among the additional VIPs who enjoyed the clowns, tigers, aerialists, and more.
