Cue the obvious opener: We've got a rehab situation on our hands. Though both he and his publicist initially denied it, there's now confirmation that Jersey Shore star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is undergoing inpatient rehab for prescription medication at the tony Cirque Lodge in Utah, the same place Demi Moore attended. Sorrentino released a statement saying that his stint in rehab is voluntary and the prescription med problem is the result of "exhaustion." "I have spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule," says Sorrentino. "I appreciate my fans support and love you guys." The Situation's father, Frank Sorrentino, said that his son has been in rehab once before, at age 27, before his career took off on the MTV show. However, sources told the Chicago Sun-Times that while the Sitch entered that treatment of his own will, "it took a village" of loved ones and Jersey Shore castmates to convince him this time around. MTV is also reportedly insistent that Sorrentino clean up his act before returning for the sixth season of hit show.
