Jersey Shore fans are probably replaying some of the greatest Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro moments in their head right now (Rawwwn! Stawwwwp!).

The notorious on-again, off-again couple from the hit MTV series surprised everyone when they actually worked things out and kept going strong after the show wrapped, but alas, it turns out you really can't find love at the Shore.

"At this time, Ronnie and I have gone our separate ways," Sammi tells E! News exclusively. "I wish him nothing but the best. Right now, I'm focused on myself."

So what happened?

Sure, the twosome, who reportedly broke up two months ago, seemed to have their fair share of arguments when we experienced their roller-coaster romance on the small screen, but Ronnie tells People (who were first to report the breakup) that it was an issue of their schedules and just growing apart.

"We were drifting apart and not really spending any time together," he said. "I still care about her," adding that he's not ready to date again. "She's a great girl, but we were growing distant. It was for the best."

Sam and Ron met and began their tumultuous relationship on the first season of Jersey Shore back in 2009. The pair had been living together in Westchester, Calif., but Sammi is now living in New Jersey again.
