Jersey Shore's The Situation checked into rehab for alcohol, pills




Despite his agent's insistence he isn't in rehab, TMZ continues to press the story that Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is in rehab. Who are you gonna believe, the folks paid to make the Situation look bad, or the folks paid to make him look good? Tough choice.

The website swears up and down that Mike detoxed from alcohol abuse at a separate facility before checking into Utah's famed Cirque Lodge. He also apparently has a problem with prescription drugs. A source tells TMZ Sorrentino has been "very open" with the other patients about his drinking, and how having a part-time job showing up at nightclubs isn't helping. That and being on a show where the characters get drunk all the time, too.

That kind of throws into question the sixth season of Jersey Shore, don't it? Well, maybe MTV will come clean and show there are consequences for unbridled, self-destructive misbehavior. Or they could just ignore it. We're thinking the latter.
