The Situation admits pill addiction, Snooki evicts self from ‘Shore’ house (update)

The Situation

Here’s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino at the launch of his new limited sunglasses line caled, “The Situation Origination Series.” Of course he’s showing off his revolting abdominal muscles while presumably showcasing the glasses as well. What really annoys me is that there are probably some dudes who will actually buy these overpriced pieces of plastic because they buy into Sitch’s “brand” which is definitely not gay. Or something like that.

As for Sitch himself, he just finished a two-month stint of supposedly resting at an undisclosed location — but of course we all know the dude was in rehab. While it’s easy to assume that Sorrentino was in for coke addiction, he now insists that it was all because of a prescription pain pill problem, which he reportedly developed because being famous is so hard:

The Situation

From “Dancing with the Stars” to dancing with the devil, The Situation’s had a busy few years.

Now, Jersey Shore’s Mike Sorrentino opens up to MTV’s Sway about the substance abuse that landed him in rehab, and has all the details for you.

The Situation said that his recent stint in recovery was to curb a nasty pill popping habit — a story was first to report back in March.

“My addiction was prescription painkillers. At first, I thought it gave me energy, I thought it helped me,” he said, citing the nonstop travel demands and plane rides expected of those in show business. “Being in this business is not easy.”

The reality star said he “made a mistake by picking a substance over what I previously chose, which is fitness.”

He said that he never had any other abuse issues to deal with — i.e. alcohol, cocaine or marijuana — nor did he ever mix his pills with any of the aforementioned substances.

While many might believe his villainous nature on the show might have left him with a lack of support from castmates, The Sitch said that isn’t the case.

“At the end of the day,” he says, “all the kids care for each other.”

Yeah sure, it’s not “easy” pulling the gym, tan, laundry routine every day of one’s life and doing nothing else but spouting delusional rants while walking around with one’s wang hanging out. Poor Sitch. He’s got it so rough.

In the meantime, a barely-pregnant looking Snooki (she’s about five months along) has been pimping her new (ghostwritten) book, Gorilla Beach, and she says that the upcoming Season Six of “Jersey Shore” (which will be shooting this summer) will see her in her very own private home. So I guess that means she’ll be visiting the “Shore” house itself for filming, and she’ll probably be super pregnant by then too:


Season 6 of “Jersey Shore” just dropped another major bomb, TMZ has learned … Snooki will NOT be shacking up with her fellow castmates this summer — instead getting her own private nest nearby.

Sources tell us … the mama-to-be is taking her pregnancy very seriously, choosing to live NEAR the “Shore” house rather than IN it because it’s not worth it to be surrounded by boozy, loud roommates while pregnant.

If you recall, Snooki announced she was knocked-up in February — when she was already 3 months along — which means while filming this summer she’ll be in prime popping position … all the more reason to have a pad of her own.

The guidette’s absence is just another in a slew of “Shore” changes this year … which includes a sober Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino (who just got out of rehab) and the possibility of adding a Snooki-baby to the cast.

It’s shaping up to be the most boring BEST season ever!

[From TMZ]

I suppose that it’s pretty smart for Snooki to have insisted upon her own home while shooting the next season of the show. At least she won’t be around all the liquor or the clogged toilets courtesy of Ronnie. So gross.

During the promotion for Gorilla Beach, Snooki reportedly (according to WENN) made an announcement that she was dedicating this latest book to “my husband,” which will likely cause speculation that she’s already gotten married to fiance Jionni LaValle. I don’t buy it though. Snooki’s just trying to stir the gossip mill, and there’s no way in hell that she’d get married without selling the photos to Us Magazine, who would probably (and unfortunately) be interested in buying them.

UPDATE: Snooki covers this week’s issue of In Touch with an exclusive on the sex of her baby, and from her answer, I’m guessing that at least there won’t be as much leopard print involved in the nursery decor:

Snooki tells In Touch that she and Jionni are deciding between two names – Lorenzo or Jionni Jr. And while she’s thrilled to welcome a son, the 24-year-old admits she was hoping for a mini-me. “I thought it was going to be a girl. I was hoping it would be, because all girls want girls,” Snooki says, at first disappointed, but added, “It’s still my baby, no matter what. I’m excited either way!”

Proudly showing off her baby bump at her In Touch photo shoot, the mom-to-be says she’s traded in her beloved pickles and now craves icy, cold treats. “I love anything cold and juicy, like Italian ices.” But even more surprising? While some women find their sex drive enhanced during pregnancy, you won’t find Snooki and Jionni anywhere near the smush room! “Our sex life is hardly there! I just feel too icky and gross,” Snooki tells In Touch. “I’m so not in the mood to do stuff.”

[From In Touch Weekly]

Snooki might be the only pregnant woman that I’ve ever heard of who doesn’t crave pickles. Then again, when she drinks the juice straight out of the bottle while not pregnant, maybe the baby really is putting some sense into her.

    This guy is utterly gross! Egads!!!!!!!

    • yuk says:

      Absolutely! His nose is probably bigger than his wang after all those steroids. What a disgusting specimen of humanity! This is entertainment??

  2. Gia says:

    Snooke looks good. Sobriety does her good!

  3. Maguita says:

    Eureka! A gathering of tribal Guidos.

    Everytime I see one of them Jersey people, I always remember that hilarious episode of Bones, where one Guido gets murdered. Dr. Brennan thought she was watching some discovery channel “reportage” on a real tribe of socially-challenged idiots living on the Jersey Shore, could not believe that it was “Reality TV”, scripted nonetheless 😀

    Best thing ever, especially how she describes the homo-erotic like brotherhood that binds those Guidos!

    • sarah says:

      LOVED that episode. It had me cracking up!!

      • Maguita says:

        “Yo, muscles marinara”, says Booth to the Guido flexing his pecks at Brennan!

        Get it? Flexing pecks, muscles marinara…

    • Lindy says:

      Oh man, I loved that episode, too! I’ve never seen any of this Jersey Shore crap, and I’m actually a professor myself, so I couldn’t help but crack up when Bones thought that. If I didn’t have Celebitchy keeping it real for me, I might have made that mistake! These people are so gross and weird!

      • Maguita says:

        I’ve tried watching it a few times, but found oddly that it was … Making me aggressive! For no reason at all!

        To be honest, I fear that it intentionally dumbs you down (or up?) Like the cognitive ability effect on street gang members: The more rowdy the gang gets, the stupider each member becomes!

        And boy, was I in the mood to drink during those few episodes! But hey, I gave it an honest try. Now I safely check what is happening on gossip sites!

  4. the original bellaluna says:

    I think it’s a good idea for Snooki to stay out of that mess of a house while she’s pregnant – too much temptation.

    Mike will hopefully stay sober, but I just read that Angelina’s coming back for a 3 episode arc, and she’s supposedly going to be “stirring up trouble” to add excitement to the cast.

    Guess we’ll see, but I’m still not watching.

    • Zelda says:

      Angelina is coming back?

      Yessss…I love hating her.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        I read it on ROL way early this a.m. – I think it’s in the story where Sitch admits his addiction was to RX painkillers. (Scroll back a couple pages on ROL – it’s there!

  5. Kiki says:

    Why did he gain so much weight?

    • Krock says:

      Because he stopped doing coke.

    • Zelda says:

      From what I heard, putting on weight in rehab–the rehab 15–is a pretty common thing.
      Especially if drugs we interfering with his appetite, before.

      God I hate this guy. He looks like Leisure Suit Larry.

      • QQ says:

        YES i was coming to say that a) he chubbed up, probably from stopping coke and B) He is SO GROSS; seriously who finds these dudes attractive Like Pauly D is another one all that tanning makes their faces Ultra Wrinkly and sh-t so when they smile they have these crows feet, and the hair?!? And the eyebrow plucking, the Ed Hardy type clothes?!? , seriously, WHO F–KS THESE DOUCHEBAGS?!?

  6. Katyusha says:

    I’ve never seen a picture of Snooki where I thought she looked good until now.

    Snooki, you look great!!

  7. sarah says:

    Snookie looks good. Who would’ve guessed it was possible?!

  8. hillbillygirl45 says:

    This is just sad. I’ve never watched these drunken clowns, and I ain’t gonna. These nasty people are celebrities? Really?! I say, put the Jersey Shore idiots, the Kartrashians + Kanye, and Blohan all together on a deserted island never to be seen or heard from again. And I cry B.S. that “Sitch” didn’t drink and eat pills, ain’t drinkin’ his main talent on that show? SMH

  9. CN says:

    Is there something different with her face? Or is it just weight loss/different makeup?

    • Maguita says:

      Not to insult Snookie, but she looks a lot now like Bristol Palin, after her many facial surgeries and falsely-implanted aesthetics.

  10. Krock says:

    I’m glad to hear hes clean and sober. Regardless of my personal feelings about him and the show.

    Only thing is I don’t believe pills were his only problem. Just sayin’. Watch reruns, you’ll see what I mean. I hope the best for him and anyone in recovery. It cant be easy.

  11. serena says:

    What kind of lame name is Jionni. At least Johnny if you want something similar.. either way, I hope she’ll call him Lorenzo. Poor baby.

  12. Samigirl says:

    “I thought it was going to be a girl. I was hoping it would be, because all girls want girls.”

    Ummmm…no. I wanted boys. Both times. I loooooooooved being mommy to a little boy and I seriously hoped for a boy this go around. I’m over the moon with my daughter, don’t get me wrong, but I really didn’t want a girl either go around.

    If anyone is going to speak for “all girls,” it shouldn’t be Snookie.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Agreed, Samigirl! When I was pregnant with my second child (we didn’t find out genders until the older 2 were born), everyone was asking me “So, since you already have a boy, don’t you really want a little girl?” And I said “Nope.” “But why?” “Because I already have a boy; I already have boy stuff; and it wasn’t that long ago that I was a 17 year-old girl, and I remember what I was like!”

      Snooki should have worded it as a question, like “Don’t most women want little girls?” or something like that.

      I’m glad you’re enjoying your little miss and her big brother is too! 🙂

      • Danielle says:

        I’m a mom who wanted all girls (I have 2 boys and only 1 girl) and I agree with you on the part that Snooki should definitely NOT be the one to speak for all girls… gross. I wasn’t upset that my boys were boys (it’s not fair, they can’t choose their gender) but I really wanted a girl.

        I’m happy to hear your not disappointed in having your daughter. I hope you’ll enjoy her!
        Sometimes feeling disappointed in the gender of your kid can become crazy… A couple I knew had a boy and then a girl (they wanted all boys) and they blatantly favor their son over their daughter. it makes me sad to see her being the odd girl out :(.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Oh, Danielle, that’s not cool. I wasn’t upset that my daughter was my daughter, either. We didn’t favour our son over our daughter, and love her just as much as our sons. And Snooki absolutely has no business appointing herself the unofficial “girl spokes-girl.”

  13. Roma says:

    An old bartender friend of mine has done copious amounts of cocaine with all three of those Jersey Shore boys.

    People own up to prescription use because it therefore puts part of the blame on the doctor. Why can’t people just say “yo, I had way too much money and I went on a huge coke bender. I’m clean now.” I would respect them more.

    (Not to say people don’t have P drug addictions – I’m just saying it’s the quick cop-out for athletes and actors.)

    • Sapphire says:

      Besides-total BS that taking pain pills, assumably a controlled substance ie prescription only, is for “energy”. Huh? What crap did he or some enabler lay on the DR?

      • Roma says:

        If you have a shady doctor and can get a prescription, narcolepsy drugs are actually pretty badass. No real crazy side effects, you just don’t feel tired.

        But he is a straight up cocaine user.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        When hubs hurt his back at work and was on RX pain meds, he was an absolute spaz. They wired him; made him angry and aggressive.

        It was NOT pretty.

      • Roma says:

        @the original bellaluna: Sorry for your hubby – pain pills can be horrible. But I was mostly referring to the Sitch saying he was on uppers from his doctor when I have a friend who did a lot of cocaine with him. And 2 friends who did it with Ronnie.

        But maybe because they play to the teen demographic MTV wouldn’t let him admit to illegal drugs?

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Roma, you’re probably right. I doubt MTV would let any of them come right out and say “Yeah, I’m a coke fiend.” (Remember how quickly that dude bringing over the bag of drugs was called out, busted, and charges filed? Wasn’t that coke?)

        I also thought it was kind-of common knowledge that the guys on the show use steroids (“juice head guidos”). And I’m pretty sure steroids; alcohol; RX pain meds; and illegal drugs aren’t a good mix, in ANY combination.

        (Hubs doesn’t take the pain meds anymore – orthopedists in Cali are notoriously stingey with pain meds. And have egos the size of Texas.) 😉

  14. Meecey says:

    You said wang. *giggle*
    I don’t watch but I hope his recovery goes well.
    As for baby Snooki, with all that Leopard print, I vote to name him Tarzan!!! Lol

  15. Skins says:

    Uh, Snook, MTV is paying you big money to be a drunken fool, not to sit around all sober and boring. I don’t think this is going to work. Next cast please

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Did you read my earlier comment? Angelina’s coming back to the house. *POOF* The end of boring!

  16. Str8Shooter says:

    There was no prescription drug problem. Just a sagging popularity which INVENTED one.

    These people are so pathetic.

  17. Laura says:

    I never thought I’d say this, but Snooki is looking good. Pregnancy agrees with her very well.
