Jersey Shore's Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino dishes on pill addiction


Jersey Shore's Mike Sorrentino finally is talking about his rehab situation with MTV, telling Sway the pressures of being on TV and getting paid to do nothing finally got to him. Well, we're trying to be supportive and all, but his show ain't exactly broadcasting live from the Syrian uprising or anything.

"My addiction was prescription painkillers. At first, I thought it gave me energy, I thought it helped me," he said. Apparently the late hours and constant travel started to get to him. "Being in this business is not easy." He added he "made a mistake by picking a substance over what I previously chose, which is fitness."

Indeed, he's looking a little doughier than normal in the video, which you can watch below. He reveals he never had problems with other drugs or alcohol, and he didn't mix his cocktails, but at least his castmates were looking out for him while they were all going out, getting drunk and breaking local ordinances. Except for Snooki, whom TMZ says will be shooting the sixth season in her own house. It seems being pregnant isn't conducive to living with a bunch of layabouts with one foot in a 12-step program.
