Mike Sorrentino

Rumor has it that Jersey Shore star Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino was suffering from a much larger prescription drug habit–mixed with alcohol binges–than he was letting on.

According to Radar Online, Mike only fessed up to taking Xanax and Ambien as he entered rehab last week, but his habits were much worse than that.

A source tells them that “Mike was taking unbelievable amounts of Dilaudid along with Xanax and Ambien. Mike was taking about 20-30 pills a day which easily could have killed him. Mike is very lucky that he didn’t overdose and die, because the amount of prescription drugs was that high and deadly. It was very easy for Mike to get the prescription drugs, and he got them from more than one doctor. It’s very likely that his physicians were unaware that he was taking all three of the prescription drugs. Mike would also drink alcohol while he was taking the pills which obviously could have had a horrible outcome for him. Everyone around him is hopeful he will stay sober once he leaves Cirque Lodge.”

Another friend shared that Mike had “become dependent on prescription pills to counter-act other his hard partying lifestyle, which included illegal substances. Mike was in a vicious cycle of not sleeping because of the illegal substances that he was taking, so he began using prescription pills to help him sleep. Mike would refer to the prescriptions pills as ‘downers.’ The good news is that he was the one that wanted to get help and checked into rehab. Hopefully with the proper treatment, Mike will be able to lead a sober life.”

TMZ is reporting that MTV has known since the beginning of season TWO that Mike had some serious drinking problems and tried to force him to get help.  They threatened several times to replace him and each time he got his act together enough that they kept him on.  Now, they’re worried about the opposite problem – what if he’s too sober and it becomes “Jersey Snore”? Especially now with Snooki’s pregnancy added in there.   Even though MTV has said they’re not replacing the cast, sources tell TMZ they ARE on the hunt for replacements.

On a much lighter note, Snooki shared this adorable shot of her and baby-daddy-turned-fiance Jionni LaValle.  I’m not sure if it’s meant to be their “official” engagement photo, but they are showing off Snooki’s new rock.  They really are an adorable couple.  I wonder if MTV will shoot a spinoff focused on these two after their baby is born.  Snooki learning to change diapers and dealing with all that a new baby brings could certainly  make for some quality entertainment.

According to TMZ, Jersey Shore star The Situation has entered rehab.

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.

Last night’s Jersey Shore was one hot mess of tears, douchiness, sex, and some absolutely horrible boots. The whole thing was just A. LOT.

Snooki wakes up the next day after Jionni leaves feeling awful, and still sporting her hot pink leopard swimsuit. Pauly D, along with Rawn and Deena, head to work, and Pauly is trying to be as loud and annoying as possible to exasperate his roommates’ hangovers.

Back at the villa, Snooki can’t get in touch with Jionni so she seeks the advice of her BFF JWoww. Unfortunately for Snooki, Jenni wasn’t blackout wasted the night before and she remembers all the kind and loving things her friend screamed at her in the streets. She decides to sleep in and ignore Snooki’s whining. Undeterred, Snooki puts on a hoodie (or is that a dress?) and her Ewok boots to go out day drinking alone. That is always a great idea!


It was a classic case of he-said she-said on this season of the Jersey Shore as Mike The Situation accused Snooki of hooking up with him and cheating on her boyfriend.

During earlier episodes this season, Mike, 29, dropped the bomb when he also revealed he had developed feelings for the Snooks, 23. The Snooks however unconvincingly protested too much flew into a rage and denied Mike’s claims. Snooki also informed her beau Jionni LaVelle of Mike’s claims though she still maintained she never cheated.

Fast forward to today and UsWeekly is reporting Snooki’s castmates, including her BFF JWoww, no longer believe her! The report states they actually believe Mike’s version of events over hers.

The reunion for season 4 was taped on August 31, and the hook-up was a huge topic. “When the hookup was brought up during the reunion show, nobody sided with her,” a witness at the taping revealed. “Everyone believed Mike!” added the source.

A report by Star magazine confirms UsWeekly’s report stating that though the cast was upset with Mike at the beginning of the reunion taping in Los Angeles, by the end of the show, they were believing his claims “because Snooki was just out of control, denying it too much.”


The set insider adds that Snooki also showed up drunk to the reunion (Seriously, this girl has a drinking problem no?) and continued drinking through out. “It was only 11 a.m., and she was a mess!” the insider reveals. “She was slurring her words and struggling to keep her head up straight. There was no doubt she was drunk.”

Producers reportedly struggled to keep the Snooks in check backstage. Yikes.

A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.


frank sorrentino

Jersey Shore star The Situation aka Mike Sorrentino is being forced to deal with an unpleasant situation this week as his father has spent the entire week publicly bashing him while also revealing his plans to release a tell-all book about him.

It all began on Tuesday when Frank Sorrentino released an explosive video accusing his son of abandoning his family after getting famous. “I ask you one f**king favor and you tell me to go f**king be like a regular f**king Joe Blow and go on welfare? No, my friend, I don’t do that,” said Frank in the video.

Frank made other allegations against The Sitch, including accusing him of getting fired from a job for receiving oral sex from a 40-year-old co-worker.

TMZ then reported yesterday that the main issue with Frank has to do with money… of course. One of Frank’s business associates tells TMZ that Frank had asked the Sitch for help in making his monthly medical insurance payments recently and that Mike refused. Sources claim that not only did Mike say no but he also told his dad to “move to Florida and go on welfare.”

Frank was apparently outraged by Mike’s refusal to help and decided to post the videos of himself slamming his son.

As for The Situation, 28, he is currently in Italy getting ready to start filming the 4th season of the Jersey Shore. He did however release a statement through his rep calling his father’s actions hurtful. Frank “has unfortunately decided to go public with some statements regarding Mike Sorrentino to garner himself media attention. Mike is extremely saddened by his estranged father’s actions and the Sorrentino family, Marc, Frank, Jr., Melissa and their mother Linda, remain united with Mike under these hurtful circumstances.”

As of today, Frank is now planning to release a tell-all book about his son titled Confrontation With Situation. Frank promises the book will reveal all about Mike’s life before hitting it big.

“I’m calling Mike on his sh*t,” Frank says in a press release. “I’ve covered up for Mike his entire life, and when I needed his help, he left me hanging. I think people should know what I know. Hardcore partying, drugs, sex, crime elements, you name it, it’s in there.” Frank also announced today that he now wants his own reality show. Yikes.


It was a bad situation on last night’s Dancing With The Stars results show.

Jersey Shore star Mike Sorrentino aka The Situation got eliminated following his very low scores from Monday night.  The Sitch however took things in stride, telling co-host Brooke Burke, “You know what, I told myself if I got eliminated today, I put it all on the floor last night. I really hoped [the scores] weren’t fours. But it is what it is, and at the end of the day, someone’s got to go home.”

The Situation’s elimination wasn’t exactly a surprise as he received the lowest score on Monday night. In the bottom two with The Sitch last night was Bristol Palin, who also scored low on Monday.

The Sitch also revealed he was happy he got to show another side of himself, other than the party-boy persona that is shown on The Shore.  “I’m not a dancer, and this is definitely hard,” he explained. “On ‘Jersey Shore,’ you get a little keyhole of who I am. On ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ you really get the whole Situation.”


MTV's Jersey Shore Cast

MTV is once again stirring up controversy with the debut of their new show – Jersey Shore. The show, which follows a group of 20 something year old Italians as they live and work on the Garden State’s shoreline, has been criticized by some Italian American groups as being offensive and reinforcing stereotypes of Italian-Americans.

UNICO National — the “Largest Italian American Service Organization in the USA” — claims they “can’t keep up with the volume of calls ” from “outraged” Italian Americans. They added that it should be pulled from the air. The backlash doesn’t end there, as advertisers – Domino’s and American Family Insurance have requested that their ads be pulled from the show.

MTV however continues to stand by the show. “We understand that this show is not intended for every audience and depicts just one aspect of youth culture,” MTV’s spokesman told Fox News on Tuesday. “Our intention was never to stereotype, discriminate or offend.”

The cast of Jersey Shore can be seen continuously referring to themselves as “Guidos” and “Guidettes” on the show. Both terms have long been found to be offensive to Italians.

One of the cast members, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, however defends the use of the term ‘Guido.’ “The older generation doesn’t understand. These days in New York and New Jersey a ‘guido’ is a good-looking Italian male that likes to have fun and a ‘guidette’ is a good-looking Italian girl,” Mike tells EW.com.

I actually saw the premier episode of this show and was a bit surprised to see the term “Guido,” be used so frequently by the cast. Always assumed the term was offensive. Other than that, the show pretty much fell in line with all the other MTV reality shows, such as the Real World. It was pretty much the same formula – follow a group of 20 something year olds as they get drunk, and make complete asses of themselves on national television. It’s likely the show is here to stay as it premiered to rather good ratings, the premier episode was seem by a total of 1.4 million viewers.
