While an addiction towards GTL (gym, tanning, laundry) is in their blood, Ronnie says the kids of the "Jersey Shore" aren't programmed to start fights -- they're merely forced to defend themselves.
Whether it's against drunk gym teachers or a couple of charging "hippos," Sammi's sweetheart says the group's throwdowns are "almost self defense ... we can't walk away, we gotta do what we have to do"
And speaking of fists -- Ronnie made sure to pump his for us too.
