The Situation Rehab

‘The Situation’ has reportedly been spending time in an inpatient facility for the last few weeks. We hope he’s getting the help he needs!

Breaking news: Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino is in rehab, reports TMZ.

The 29-year-old Jersey Shore star’s rep confirmed to the site he “has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule.”

Unfortunately, we’re not surprised by this disappointing news. We’ve all watched The Situation and his friends rage for years now…it was only a matter of time before it caught up with them.

That said, a source connected to the show tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively there is no chance Mike was doing drugs inside the house, as they are strictly monitored for anything outside of alcohol. That said, Mike always seemed to be “a different Mike” outside the show, our insider says. “He felt like he had this image to live up to, so he would ALWAYS take free drinks and try to be the life of the party,” the source explains. “It was troubling to watch.”

We contacted Snooki’s rep, who said she had “no comment.”

We hope Mike feels better soon — and can’t help but wonder how this will change next season of the show when he’s recovering and Snooki is pregnant!

Do YOU think The Jersey Shore will be the same again?
