'The Situation' Opens Up About Rehab Stint

Amid rumors of what’s in store for America during the much anticipated Season 6 of "Jersey Shore," MTV has posted an interview with the show’s trademark walking washboard, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.

In a conversation with Sway from MTV, a happy and dare I say it - seemingly well adjusted - Sorrentino talked about his substance abuse, his mistakes, his bottom (addiction term, not literal), his time in rehab, his career and his outlook for the future.

The GTL guido confesses, among other things, that his true personality could be witnessed in Seasons 1 and 2, where he was the “hero.” During Season 3, 4 and 5 he became the villain. Largely he feels due to his addiction to the prescription medication that he turned to when he needed energy to tackle the demanding daily schedule of inexplicable super stardom.

He claims to have never had problems with narcotics of any kind or even alcohol, a fact that his rep reiterated to Hollyscoop, “Alcohol wasn't his issue,” she says.

What his issues actually were are too many to name at this juncture.

“I was never a drunk. I was the guy that was the ladies man. You can’t get girls if you, you know, can’t speak to them.” Solid dating tip.

Despite his set backs, he assures us all that he’s still ready to hit the clubs for a good time. So relax America, even though Snooks has to abstain for the obvious reason currently gestating in her belly, we aren’t necessarily going to be subjected to a dry shore.
