The Situation gets treatment for prescription drug use
The party is on hold for the Situation. The “Jersey Shore” cast member is getting treatment for prescription medication use.
Mike Sorrentino said he is voluntarily seeking to “take control” of medication he was taking to deal with exhaustion, the Associated Press reports.
The 29-year-old reality star known for his steel abs made the acknowledgment on Facebook and his personal website after gossip sites reported he was in rehab.
He said he has “spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule.” He didn’t specify the medication.
An email from MTV said the network has no comment but is “looking forward” to the entire cast returning for a sixth season of the hit reality show.
VH1 said Wednesday that it is making “Hollywood Exes,” a onehour series that will air this summer. Featured players are the ex-wives of Eddie Murphy, Prince, R. Kelly, Will Smith and Jose Canseco.
The network said that Nicole Murphy, Jessica Canseco, Andrea Kelly, Sheree Fletcher (Mr. Smith’s ex) and Mayte Garcia (Prince’s ex) “want to show the world that they are more than just a trophy wife with a pretty face.”
The 10-episode series will follow the women as they establish their own lives apart from their famous ex-husbands.
