The Situation, also known as Mike Sorrentino, is adding to the sober pool at the Jersey Shore. Pregnant Snooki isn’t drinking and neither is he. After dealing with an addiction to prescription medication, Sorrentino has opted to stay completely sober.
Even though he doesn’t drink, Sorrentino has been spotted making the rounds at Seaside Heights nightclubs — and people haven’t responded to his sobriety in a very supportive manner.
“Mike has been consistently taunted by other club goers for not drinking. He has been handling it pretty well but it can get embarrassing and awkward for him to consistently be harassed for it,” a show insider reveals to Radar Online.
Sorrentino’s sobriety is quite new. He got clean at a Utah rehab center this past February, so the heckling isn’t ideal for his recovery. However, it is not deterring him either. “Mike absolutely hasn’t been drinking or taking pills and is committed to staying sober. Mike isn’t going to stay home and not go to clubs, he doesn’t think that going out will harm his recovery.”
The Situation will remain in Seaside Heights where he is filming Jersey Shore season 6 until the second week of July.
