When Jersey Shore returns this summer, it’ll be a very different Situation.
Now on the road to recovery, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is opening up for the first time about his stint in rehab earlier this year in an interview.
He comes clean in the sit-down about the root of his problems.
“My addiction was prescription painkillers. At first, I thought it gave me energy, helped me,” he tells MTV. “Being in this business is not easy. I made a mistake by picking a substance over what I previously chose, which is fitness.”
Mike adds that he never had a problem with alcohol or cocaine andMore >
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s … The Situation.
According to Wizard World Inc., the Jersey Shore star has signed a publishing, development and appearance deal to create and publish a comic book based on Sitch.
“MPS Entertainment and I are thrilled about our new relationship with Wizard World. I grew up reading comic books and now I get a chance to star in my own. I can’t wait for everyone to see what we are working on,” said Sitch, a.k.a. Mike Sorrentino.
We know, we thought this was a joke at first too.
Added John Macaluso, the CEO of Wizard World:
“Wizard World is so excited to partnerMore >
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino says he’s getting a much-need breather, but denies (mostly) that he is in rehab for any sort of substance abuse problem.
After TMZ reported that Sitch was in rehab Tuesday, a rep for the Jersey Shore star said that he was at an undisclosed location “for much needed rest.”
The rep chalked that up to “his extensive production and appearance schedule.” Now Mike’s personally commenting on the (sorry) situation as well:
He didn’t flat out deny it, but called out TMZ for “ridiculous embellishments.”
“You can’t believe everything you hear about ‘the situation’More >
Snooki may not know that Europe is a continent, but she knows enough to save for a rainy day. She extolled the virtues of stockpiling earnings in a recent interview.
She also implied that one of her co-stars – The Situation – is flat broke.
“I save it,” Snooki tells GQ of the bank she earns. “Jersey Shore is going to end soon. I’m not going to spend money like Mike [The Situation]. He’s already broke!”
In the past, Sitch has claimed that any extravagances he displays – cars, jewelry – are gifts or loans from various endorsement deals. But could it be that he’s already flushed his millionsMore >
Gym, tan, lawsuit?
It’s another ugly legal situation for Mike Sorrentino. This time, the Jersey Shore star wants to make sure his GTL trademark is intact, which means suing a random ass guido-themed lifestyle company for ripping off The Situation’s brand.
The lawsuit has been filed … but does it have merit?
Don’t cry, Mike … it’s gonna be alright dawg.
Sitch’s cease and desist letter to a website called MyGTLFuel (dot) com claims they’d better quit exploiting his trademark or legal action will be a-comin’.
The site, which sells everything from energy shots to tanning lotion, hasn’t goneMore >
The Situation is calling out Abercrombie & Fitch over its “We’ll Pay You to Not Wear Our Clothes” stunt, claiming he never received such an offer.
At the same time, he’s totally up for it.
Chillin’ in his Ferrari in the Garden State yesterday, he said, “Nobody’s contacted me in any way about that … but that’s pretty crazy, you’re really gonna pay someone NOT to wear something? Call me up man!”
He makes a valid point. At least when he gets paid by MTV for Jersey Shore, he has to drink, fist-pump, stir up drama and sleep with too many girls.
Here, they want to pay him for doing evenMore >
Lots of people pay The Situation big money for endorsements. Abercrombie & Fitch is looking to do the opposite – pay him NOT to wear the brand!
The company says in a news release that having Mike Sorrentino and his Jersey Shore castmates in A&F clothing could be disastrous to its image.
In short, it could cause “significant damage,” if not irreparable harm.
Abercrombie & Fitch: Not pumped about Sitch.
Abercrombie feels any connections to The Situation will go against the “aspirational nature” of its brand and may be “distressing” to potential customers.
Hilariously, the Ohio-basedMore >
Vinny Guadagnino returned to Jersey Shore over the weekend, a little over a week after getting into an altercation with a cast member and bolting.
Reports say The Situation, who walked off the set in a similar huff, is also back into the fold. But the network is far from pleased with their antics.
MTV has instituted a “zero tolerance policy” for the Jersey Shore stars, threatening to fire any cast member who even thinks of going AWOL.
TMZ says the network is serious this time. Walk off the show again and you’re fired, your contract will be terminated, period. No exceptions.
With two castMore >
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is hitting back publicly at claims made by his former manager, which filed a $1 million lawsuit against him Friday.
Contrary to Gotham Management’s claim that Sitch got famous because they repped him, the Jersey Shore star says they don’t deserve credit.
Richard Wolfe, Mike’s lawyer, says Gotham’s suit “is filled with falsities,” and that the “did MORE HARM than good to Michael and his career.”
The one thing everyone agrees on? Mike is really famous!
Gotham claims in its lawsuit that it made The Situation a star, which is the basis for the seven-figureMore >
The wheels may be coming off the Jersey Shore money train.
Last week, Vinny Guadagnino peaced out abruptly in the middle of filming, walking out of the house, heading home to Staten Island and not coming back.
Now reports say The Situation has done the same.
Sources say Sitch (real name Mike Sorrentino) abandoned his costars and decided to head home early: “Mike walked off the show. He’s so over the whole thing … I don’t think he’s coming back. Everyone in the house is so unhappy.”
The cast returned from Italy to begin filming Season 5 of Jersey Shore where it all began in the familiarMore >
Mike Sorrentino, a.k.a. the only guy who has a nickname (Sitch) for his own nickname (The Situation) celebrated his birthday yesterday on July 4.
It’s an appropriate birthday for Mike, since only in America can a fella who contracts STDs, takes steroids, talks with a fake ghetto accent, instigates fights among friends and wears shirts four sizes too small become a household name.
We kid. Well, sort of. All of the above is true.
There’s a genuineness about Sitch that makes the Jersey Shore star lovable in spite of his douche-like qualities. He also comes up with acronyms and catchphraseMore >
In news that could invoke a nationwide sigh of relief sufficient to cause a tsunami, MTV has confirmed ‘Snooki,’ ‘JWoww,’ and the rest of the Jersey Shore inmates are on their last season and will now be replaced by a less costly cast.
“After this group comes back from Italy and shoots season 5 this summer, that will be the end for them,” an MTV source tells Us.
MTV’s key motive for this long-stalled relief seems to be cost – ‘Snooki; ‘JWoww,’ ‘The Situation’ and ‘Pauly D’ each landed contracts worth $100,000 a show for season four and the snitch says the new cast will “be a lotMore >
Apparently Jersey Shore drama extends beyond international borders.
Ronnie and The Situation got into a major fist fight with each other last night in Italy, according to TMZ, and based on the post-brawl images, well…
Let’s just say someone won and someone lost. And let’s just say Sitch was not the winner. Anyone surprised after he’s antagonized Ron for years?!
The two arrived separately back to their apartment hours ago, with The Situation showing some red marks across his face and in particular around his left eye.
Ronnie’s knuckles were torn up and bleeding.

For his The Situation wants to stop being exploited by others. Namely his father.
In an effort to get his bigmouth dad, Frank Sorrentino, to stop blabbing about him and his “selfish ways,” Sitch filed a suit against Sitch Sr. in a Miami court today.
Wanting his dad to put a sock in it is one thing, but what legal grounds does he have? Frank’s website, TheConfrontationSite, infringes on his rights, sayeth Sitch.
Mike says his dad’s hampering him from … doing whatever it is he does.
According to the docs (filed in Florida since Frank resides in Boca Raton), Mike, who’s raking in ca$h withMore >
The troubled Brooke Mueller just refused to submit to a court-ordered drug test.
Anytime “refused” and “court-ordered” are in the same sentence? Not good.
Sources say Brooke has fallen off the wagon lately, culminating when she was spotted at a pawn shop Friday trying to hawk a watch and a stereo.
That would be sad enough, but under her custody settlement agreement with Charlie Sheen, Brooke Mueller is required to submit to drug testing.
Brooke in more sober times. Well, presumably.
A test was scheduled for 6 p.m. yesterday. The people came to her home with the test, but her lawyer, RonMore >
