GTL? More like GTLol! Life may not be fair, but Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s skin is likely to be very fair given that fact he no longer has unlimited access to tanning beds! It’s a sad day for the former Jersey Shore star indeed.
In September of last year, Mike and his brother Marc were charged with tax fraud. Specifically, the troubled reality star was accused not only of failing to pay the state of New Jersey the full tax amount on $8.9 million in earnings, but also of filing fraudulent returns to make it look as if he had. In case you forgot (or totally missed it the first go-round…who could blame you?), Mike blamed his brother who he claimed managed his money and kept him in the dark about such matters.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week. Enjoy!

I don’t even know where to begin with this situation…seriously! What would you rather read about first? Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s mom fist pumping…into her son’s face? How about Sitch bouncing checks like he used to get bounced out of clubs in Seaside Heights?
Well, let’s start with the good news, shall we? There is love in the air for the former Jersey Shore playboy. While co-stars Jenni “J-Woww” Farley and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi are set to walk down the aisle soon, Mike is finally thinking about settling down as well. Sorry, ladies! Forget DTF, the Situation is DTM…Down to Marry!
It seems that a post-rehab Situation has reunited with his college sweetheart. Clearly, he met her years ago, since he was pushing thirty when the show started. Having given up his hard partying ways, he has been back together with Lauren Pesce for a few months now, but that’s enough time for Sitch to start hearing wedding bells.
We've got a situation here. I blame people's awareness on how harmful UV rays are…and that's a positive. The only good summer color comes from a bottle that may or may not turn your ankles and palms orange. But isn't orange the way the kids from Jersey Shore taught us how to roll?
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and crew took take pride in having a skin tones that rival that of an Oompah Loompah, so it's no surprise that post-reality show fame, Sitch has attempted to capitalize on the GTL lifestyle that made him a household name. Unfortunately for the employees of his tanning salon, things haven't been so rosy.
The Sorrentinos will follow Mike, Linda (mother), Marc (middle brother), Melissa (sister) and Frank (older brother), showing their real lives…after reality. This is a whole new situation — pun intended — for Mike. On the Jersey Shore he was known for stirring the pot, partying for a living, crashing his head into a wall in Italy and eventually filming a season sober, after a stint in rehab. So will viewers appreciate or even like the new Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino? Famous for his bad behavior, TVGN is banking on the likability of his 'real' personality.
