The Situation Turns 30

The Jersey Shore is getting older…you know, having babies and reaching middle age!

And Jersey Shore‘s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is no exception.  This GTL TV personality celebrated his 30th birthday at Senor Frog’s in the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas Saturday night.  I wonder if he “smashed” any ladies, or if he averted any “grenades.” See, I know the Jersey Shore rhetoric, yo.

I kind of think Jersey Shore fashion is ridiculous (and I hope I’m not alone). I think The Situation looks like an overly-tanned toddler in this getup…the grey/orange/baby blue color scheme isn’t really doing it for me.  And that hat? Puh-leeze! You’re 30!

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is in rehab for pills and alcohol!

According to TMZ, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino hard-partying ways on ‘The Jersey Shore’ led to an addiction problem. Several people on the set of ‘Jersey Shore’ noticed he was “acting paranoid”, and you can see that during certain Season 5 episodes. According to TMZ, during the episode where the group went camping, Mike acted jittery, sweated profusely and acted really bizarre.

Sources say Mike recently checked himself into Cirque Lodge in Utah, where he’s getting treatment for substance abuse problems. Apparently he’s dealing with addictions to prescription drugs and alcohol.

Sources involved in the situation (sorry) tell us … the Situation went through detox at a facility before he checked into Cirque Lodge in Utah, and the detox involved alcohol.

Our sources also say The Sitch is “very open” with other patients at Cirque about his drinking.  He discusses how his club appearances escalated his alcohol use.

Now here’s the problem for “Jersey Shore.”  The Situation and alcohol have been tied at the hip for 5 seasons.  If the show allows The Situation to fall off the wagon to make the show better in season 6, they will look like crass enablers.  If they don’t let him drink, there’s a good chance they will lose viewers.

Mike has released a statement of his own, via his website. “I want to set the record straight. I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion. I have spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule. I appreciate my fans support and love you guys.”

Snooki says she saves her money – and reports Mike “the Situation” is already broke!

Snooki was photographed here signing copies of her new book, Confessions of a Guidette, in New Jersey. Believe it or not, this is Snooki’s second book.

While promoting her new book, GQ sat down with the pint-sized reality star and got her to open up about life in general, and Snooks to a little jab at Mike “the Situation” Sorrentino.

On Books: “I don’t read. I don’t like to read Harry Potter or anything like that. It’s not my style.” (The interviewer points out that Snooki is a New York Times best-selling author.) “Yeah, doesn’t mean I have to read. We were supposed to read in high school but I never did because I just used the CliffsNotes, books were too long.”

On Her Next “Novel,” Gorilla Beach: “Well, Gia and her cousin go to the casino and they end up stealing something very important from the casino owner. It’s just a lot of drama but in the end, of course, they always win.”

On Her Acting Career: “I did cameos in two movies already that should be out next year but I would love to be on a sitcom like ‘The Office.’ I would have been the one to replace Steve Carell and take over. I could be a boss.”

On Our Current President: “Um, I didn’t vote for Barack Obama, but I’m supportive of him obviously because he is our president and hopefully he can fix this country because it sucks right now. I voted for McCain. Donald Trump, I would vote for him. Trump would make this country better I feel. He gets sh*t done.”

On Her College Major: “Veterinarian tech. Test me and bring me to a hospital. I can induce an animal, do surgery, do anesthesia, and take blood. So if you want to tell me I’m stupid again, let’s go to an animal hospital. I used to wear leopard scrubs at my internship. I did dogs and cats. I’ve actually worked with ducks, drew blood from a horse, and stuck my hand in a cow’s ass. I would love to go back to school and get my vet tech license. I loved the teachers at my school, I’d go there. It’s small, they have a great vet tech program and it’s cheap.”

On What She Does With Her Money: “I save it. Jersey Shore is going to end soon. I’m not going to spend money like Mike [The Situation]. He’s already broke!”

On Whether She’ll Marry: “Yeah, but not any time soon. I want to have four kids. Frankie, Isabella, Giana, and maybe Jionni Jr.”

I have to say that I’m so oooooooooooooover the Jersey Shore – and yet I can’t stop watching it! I may – or may not be anxiously awaiting the next season.

PS: I bet he is broke. And I don’t feel bad for him… he’s such a d-bag!.

Abercrombie & Fitch offer ‘The Jersey Shore’ cast a huge amount of money to STOP wearing their clothes on TV!

I’ve never heard of a clothing company who DOESN’T want their clothes appearing on celebrities, but that’s exactly what’s happening with Mike “the Situation” and Abercrombie & Fitch.

On Tuesday, the clothing retailer said they were willing to give a “substantial payment” to the entire MTV’s Jersey Shore cast if they would STOP wearing the brand on TV.

Here’s a statement from an Abercrombie & Fitch spokesperson:

“We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino’s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image. We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans. We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response.”

No word on how big the payment would be, but I’m thinking “substantial” isn’t anything to sneeze at.

The reality show, currently in its fourth season, features hard-partying and hookups in locations ranging from the show’s origin, the Jersey Shore to the current season in Florence, Italy.

The castmates have coined terms like “grenade”– to refer to an unattractive woman — and has come under fire for their liberal usage of words like “Guido” and “Guidette,” which many have argued as adhering to Italian-American stereotypes.

Call me crazy, but wouldn’t viewers of the Jersey Shore be perfect customers for Abercrombie?

Either way – this story is funny as hell.
