Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino walks off the stage of the Jersey Shore Season 5 Reunion show set to air tonight.
According to NY Daily News, the reality star issued a statement to set the record straight about his recent trip to rehab:
“I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion,” he said in the statement. “I have spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule. I appreciate my fans support and love you guys.”
Sorrentino went through alcohol detox prior to checking into the Cirque Lodge in Utah, and cited club appearances for the reality show as a primary factor leading to his alcohol abuse.
From the Advocate: Jersey Shore star Angelina was appearing on a morning radio show in North Carolina when she suggested that “The Situation” didn’t know how to make a girl want to have sex with him and she thinks he might be gay.
In an interview with 107.5 WZKL, Angelina said: “I didn’t have sex with him but to be honest with you, to get a girl riled up to the point where you want to have sex, he doesn’t even know how to do that. I honestly feel like he’s in the closet right now, he doesn’t want to come out…He’s lame, he’s not all that. Ladies he’s not all that…He doesn’t even know what he’s doing. He’s like a dead fish. He just sits there…You never know these days. More power to him if he’s gay.”
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has previously dismissed rumors he’s gay, and though he was reportedly caught off guard at appearing on the cover of The Village Voice’s Queer Issue in 2010, he said he was happy to do it for his gay fan base.
