"Jersey Shore's" resident couple – Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Sammi Giancola – appear to work best when they're sharing a room and not a commute.
Ronnie stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Thursday and revealed that distance has driven a wedge between him and his ladylove.
U.S. & World
The day's top national and international news.
"Right now we're not together," he told Billy Bush and guest co-host Holly Robinson Peete.
The reality star, who now also wrestles on" TNA Impact Wrestling," explained that their busy schedules have been tough on their love life.
"We want to focus on our careers," he continued. "And it's not really fair to either of us to be in a relationship where you're going to see each other once a week."
Despite their romantic break – with a new season of "Shore" in the works who knows will blossom between these two – Ronnie stressed that their relationship was completely legit.
"What me and Sam had was real. None of it was staged. We really care about each other and love each other," Ronnie said.
"TNA Impact Wresting" airs Thursdays at 9 PM on Spike TV.
