“The Situation” Is Out of Rehab, Ready for More ‘Jersey Shore’?

Lock up your daughters — Mike Sorrentino, otherwise known as The Situation on ‘Jersey Shore,’ has announced he’s wrapped up his stint in rehab.

The infamous party boy, who holed up at Utah’s Cirque Lodge, said last month he’d “voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem,” though insiders later revealed he’d freely admitted to those within the clinic that he was also battling alcohol abuse.

A Thursday post on his website reads in part:

Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino is home and would like to thank his fans, friends, family, and business partners for their continued support and words of encouragement. He is now stronger and better than ever, and excited for this new amazing chapter in his life … there are so many great things on the horizon, and I am sure you will all be excited for the many new projects Sitch has in development.

Sources recently told Us Weekly that this wasn’t the reality star’s first stay in rehab, saying he’d also logged time at a facility in his pre-’Jersey Shore’ days for a “bad drug problem.” And about a year ago, his pill addiction was apparently so acute that MTV producers wanted to put him in rehab themselves.

These days, Sorrentino, who often gets upwards of $25,000 every time he appears at a nightspot, may have to find a new source of supplementary income.

“Clubs aren’t going to want him to promote while stone-cold sober,” an insider said. “His out-of-control character on the show is what’s appealing about him.”
