Jersey Shore's Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was in Orlando promoting his new line of alcohol when he wound up in the hospital with painful kidney stones. The star will likely spend a few days there while recovering — so no GTL for a while.

"Ronnie was admitted to an Orlando area hospital late Saturday night," the reality star's rep confirmed (via People). "He's in a lot of pain and is expected to remain there for several days."

Luckily, his girlfriend and former co-star Sammi Giancola is en route to keep him company.

It sounds like he's on the mend now, but Saturday night he "started feeling uncomfortable" at the event for Smush Cocktails and sought medical attention. "It's a very painful condition," added his rep, "but he's being treated."
