Subscribe To What Jersey Shore's The Situation Thinks About His Legal Woes Updates
Mike Sorrentino, a.k.a. The Situation, is returning to Jersey Shore with its upcoming revival reboot, Jersey Shore Family Vacation. But he might not be staying on TV long, thanks to his recent legal problems. The reality TV star could be facing up to five years in prison for tax evasion when he goes to his sentence hearing on April 25th. But The Situation is dealing with it head-on, and admits it'll be addressed in the revived show's newest season.
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino discussed his personal problems and Jersey Shore's buzzy return during a conversation with Entertainment Tonight. As The Situation admitted at the premiere party at Hyde Sunset in L.A., the elephant in the room isn't something he ignored during the renewed series.
As Mike Sorrentino confessed, he's no longer The Situation fans knew before. He is currently celebrating 28 months of sobriety, so don't expect the same drunken antics found during the series's initial run. As he admitted, The Situation is taking things slow now, moving forward one step at a time.
These last two years have seen The Situation trying to get his life straight, especially with his legal problems. Returning to the crazy, wild-and-out world of Jersey Shore might be the last thing someone in The Situation's ... situation would want to do. But he said he kept his head down and focused on his own little world during the taping of the newest season -- particularly whenever his fellow reality TV stars were drinking and partying throughout.
With that grateful mindset, The Situation finds himself "at peace," even with his potential jail sentence looming ahead. He also looks forward to Jersey Shore Family Vacation reintroducing him -- specifically, this new side of him, dubbed "the new and improved Situation" -- when it airs on April 5th on MTV. The reboot was already renewed for a second season before its first one aired.
