Sources tell the site that The Sitch a.k.a. Mike Sorrentino, 29, has spent the last couple of weeks quietly getting treatment for a substance abuse problem.
The Situation’s substance abuse issues doesn’t come as much of a surprise, as there have been widespread rumors that he had both a drinking and drug (cocaine) problem. Add in the fact that he earns $15K to $50K to make club appearances and party around the world–something he has done for the past 2 years–and you get a recipe for disaster.
TMZ points out Mike’s odd behavior on some episodes this season, including the camping trip, during which he can be seen acting jittery, sweating profusely and acting bizarre. Sources add that he was “acting paranoid” during the filming of the last season.
However, Mike’s rep is not confirming the news, only issuing a non-denial denial in the form of this statement: Mike “has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule.”
MTV and The Sitch’s costars are reportedly happy that he is getting help and hope he’ll be well in time to start filming season 6, which MTV just announced this week.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON MIKE GOING TO REHAB? IS THE SHOW TO BLAME FOR HIS SUBSTANCE ABUSE PROBLEMS?
According to MTV, their mega hit show Jersey Shore will be back for a sixth season!
Even better, the entire cast, including a pregnant Snooki, are all set to return.
“America’s favorite housemates will all return to their home-away-from-home, and the house dynamic is headed into unchartered territory… as their lives outside the “Shore” take off in exciting new directions,” said MTV in a press release. “While things will definitely be a little different this time when they hit the boardwalk, their trademark hilarity and family dysfunction will remain the same.”
Filming on the new season is set to begin this summer in Seaside Heights, NJ, when the Snooks will be in her third trimester.
This news is a bit surprising, as Snooki, 24, recently stated she did not want to live in the shore house while pregnant. “I’m not living in that house being pregnant. I don’t want to be one of those moms who’s pregnant in a club. It’s disgusting,” said Snooki to UsWeekly earlier this month.
It will definitely be interesting to see how MTV decides to handle Snooki’s pregnancy.

In the words of the illustrious Boyz II Men, “It’s so hard to say good-bye to yesterday.” The farewell we bid to the guidos and guidettes on last night’s finale of Jersey Shore is a bit bittersweet. With the Snookster knocked up and about to walk down the aisle, who know if the gang we all love to loathe with be returning to fist pump, GTL, and sound the grenade whistle. At least we’ll still have the memories…
The episode begins with the majority of the housemates returning from their time communing with nature to find Vinny and Pauly in a kiddie pool awaiting the repercussions of the prank to end all pranks. The meatballs initial reaction is that VP decided to throw them a tiki themed homecoming party. Once the realization sets in, the roommates are beyond confused. As Pauly puts it, Mike looks even dumber than normal. He is super proud of pulling off the inside out debacle. Everyone thinks it is hilarious, except for Mike who is pissed, pacing, and muttering to himself.

Unless you’ve been in isolation for the past few weeks, you are well aware that Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizziis with child and engaged to boyfriend, Jionni Lavalle. Proving she’s a bit more calculated than her constantly drunk behavior lets on, the story was leaked to the media a month before Snooki announced it to the world, via her very own USWeekly cover, just like she was a real celebrity!
The news is out, and it’s now time for “sources” to pop and stir up drama about the reaction of her castmates. First up, a report on Hollywoodlife.com alleges Snooki’s spinoff co-star Jenni “JWoww” Farley is jealous of Snooki as she totally thought she’d be the first to be engaged. The source reveals: “JWoww really thought that she would get engaged to [boyfriend] Roger [Matthews]. Snooki got pregnant out of nowhere and that prompted her engagement. JWoww feels like Snooki keeps stealing the spotlight and everything is about her.”
The girls are currently filming their spin-off in Jersey City. It’s been rumored that due to this new development, the show had to change direction. Well, we certainly hope so! If they kept the show with the same themes, it may as well be turned into a documentary on the development of fetal alcohol syndrome. But, it’s easy to see why JWoww would feel left out. Pregnancy trumps everything.
One castmate who is not jealous is Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, a report in UsWeeklyquotes her as saying “Snooki is going to be a fun parent.” She makes a good point when she points out that it’s not like Snooki is a lost kid, saying “It’s not like she’s 16 and pregnant. She’s doing her thing, she’s living her life and I just think she’s blessed. I can’t wait to see a little guido or guidette running around. I just think it’s going to be so exciting.”
Aw, Sammi finally lives up to her nickname! Sammi is also excited for Snooki’s wedding, which will surely be a classy affair. Sammi envisions it like this: “I can see her having a cheetah or zebra print-themed wedding because she loves animal print. . .I’m excited for them. I just can’t wait to party for the wedding and do all the fun things she has coming in her life now.”
Finally, Deena Nicole, Snooki’s fellow “meatball” and frequent partner in crime has gone on the record to say that despite rumors of the show’s demise without Snooki, the GTL can go on. She says, “The show doesn’t revolve around Snooki, it’s all of us. I don’t see why we couldn’t film without her.”
Snooki has said she doesn’t want to go back to the show since she doesn’t want to be the “pregnant woman at the club” but Deena says she can come visit. “She could come down and we could throw her a little baby shower before the little meatball pops out.” It’d be an extra special Sunday dinner!
The finale of Jersey Shore season 5 airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

TELL US: WOULD YOU WATCH THE SHOW WITHOUT SNOOKI? DO YOU THINK JWOWW IS JEALOUS? WHAT DO YOU THINK SNOOKI’S WEDDING DRESS WILL LOOK LIKE?
Oh, Jersey Shore, how I love you…let me count the ways. I love you when you’re camping, when you incite food fights, and when you bring home grenades. I love you when you wear furry Ewok boots and need to blur out your private area because you forgot to put on underwear. I love it all.
Mike failed to execute his master plan on the last episode, so he takes an opportunity to take Jionni aside. He tells Snooki’s boyfriend that Snooks has totally seen the Sitch’s P while Ryder was hooking up with the Helium. Mike hopes that Jionni can respect his admission, man-to-man. Jionni shakes Mike’s hand and then crawls back in bed with Snooki to relay the Situation’s most recent situation. Snooks looks worried in the night vision cam, but seem legitimately concerned when the producers switch to full-on regular lighting. Jionni asks Nicole if Mike is being honest, but he continues to spoon Snooki as she laughingly declares Mike a liar.

With news of her pregnancy and engagement finally confirmed, Snooki is stepping up and making some serious changes in her life. The notorious 24-year-old party girl has decided not to film Jersey Shore this summer, she will focus on being a mother and providing her child with a healthy upbringing.
“I’m not living in that house being pregnant. I don’t want to be one of those moms who’s pregnant in a club. It’s disgusting,” Snooki informed Us Weekly in an exclusive interview. Snooki has also decided to postpone her wedding to fiancé Jionni LaValle until next year, because she wants to lose the baby weight.
Snooki said her parents had mixed opinions about her news. “My dad was upset. He said, ‘You have your whole life ahead of you.’ We didn’t talk for a week. He came around eventually, and now he can’t wait for the baby. My mom is so happy for me.”
Apparently, Snooki’s pregnancy has also caused concern among her co-stars. Vinny Guadagnino worried he might be the father after his fling with Snooki last year. “He’s counting the months. At first he was, but then he’s like, ‘It’s no way in the world, it’s no way. It’s gotta be Jionni’s. It’s gotta be,'” Pauly D joked. Uh oh… paging Maury!
Pauly is thrilled for Snookers, saying she has always wanted to be a mother. “I’m real excited. I love babies! I love everything about them, when they’re not yours. So I’ll take care of it, spoil it and then when it’s crying, give it back to Snooki,” he exclaims. “I want to be at the delivery room,” he adds. Um… ew.
Luckily, MTV is supportive of Snooki’s decision to take a break from filming Jersey Shore, because, well, that’s no place for babies! “We wish Nicole a healthy and happy pregnancy and congratulate her on her engagement,” a spokesperson for MTV told PEOPLE. “We support her as she starts this new chapter of her life.” Adding, “No decision has been made yet on a sixth season of Jersey Shore.”
However, many speculate the show has run its course, as the cast have gone in different directions and are getting their own spin offs. Ratings declined this season, but are still strong averaging as many as 5 million viewers a week. Additionally, one does wonder how long the “talent” will be interested in acting like drunken buffoons!
While she doesn’t want to continue with the show that made her famous, Snooki’s spin-off with JWoww is still happening. The two were spotted moving into a Jersey City apartment recently to prepare for filming. And Snooki was spotted filming this week and showing off her engagement ring! A photo of the ring is below!
Finally, Snooki is talking baby names. Way back in November the guidette had babies on the brain and talked about what she would name a future child. Thankfully Pickle and Tequila aren’t on the list. Snooki told GQ her top names are Frankie, Isabella, Giana, and Jionni Jr. She also shared that she hopes to have four kids! Wait until you have one first!

Just as reported, the MTV reality star graces the latest cover of UsWeekly magazine to reveal she is indeed pregnant AND engaged!
Speaking to UsWeekly with her now fiance Jionni LaValle, Snooki aka Nicole Polizziconfirms she is 15 weeks pregnant. “I have different priorities now,” says Snooki who is mostly known for being a drunken hot mess party girl! “I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.” Jionni, 24, chimes in, “We are not going to screw this up.”
Snooki, 24, reveals that she discovered she was preggos “right after New Year’s.” Her first thought? “‘S–t, I’ve been drinking!’ I was worried. It was New Year’s Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy.” she admits.
Reports of Snooki expecting first came out early last month when Star magazine broke the news. Snooki immediately denied the report, but two weeks ago the NY Post confirmed she was pregnant and had inked a deal with UsWeekly magazine to reveal the news.
You can read more about Snooki’s pregnancy in the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine. No word yet on the sex of the baby or when we can expect a wedding.
Snooki also reveals to the mag why she initially lied about being pregnant. Sources told TMZ last week that she lied because she did not want to jinx herself before she inked a deal the three-month mark, which is understandable. Snooki and Jionni have been together for a year and a half.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK SNOOKI IS READY FOR A BABY & MARRIAGE?
PEOPLE doesn’t reveal when or how Snooki, 24, and Jionni got engaged, though Snooki seemed to be dropping hints when she spoke to the mag earlier this year. “I know he’s the one so I know the ring’s gonna come soon,” Snooki told PEOPLE on Jan. 12.
Moving on to Snooki’s douchebag ex Emilio Masella, who simply refuses to leave the public eye since his very brief relationship with the MTV reality star back in 2010.
The latest is a new interview he gave to TMZ, in which, he reveals he’s hoping Snooki will miscarry. Wowzers.
“I hope for her sake … not to be rude or anything … but I hope she has a miscarriage,” said Emilio.
Emilio adds that while he believes Snooki will be a good mother… eventually, he doesn’t think she’s ready for babies at the moment. “When I was with her, she said she wanted twins,” he reveals. “She would always say ‘Let’s have twins.’”
It gets even better, Emilio goes on to claim Snooki’s beau Jionni might not be the father of her baby, but rather one of her costars. “I would def recommend her to get a pregnancy test to see who the father is because I’m sure there are other subjects,” he says. “Vinny could easily be the father.” Must say, Emilio might want to think twice before wishing the next person a miscarriage, as that thing called karma is very real.
As reported last week, Snooki has inked a deal with UsWeekly to share her pregnancy bombshell and now likely her engagement news as well.
