The Situation is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. Sources close to MTV and 495 Productions, which produce Jersey Shore, have reported that show producers sat The Sitch down during the majority of the seasons to address concerns about his excessive drinking. During season two he was told that his drinking was making it difficult to shoot the show, but after their words fell on deaf ears, he was threatened with being axed from the show during seasons three and four. But now that the TV star is in rehab for his addiction to prescription medication and starting to sober up completely, he may find his new healthy lifestyle even more of a detriment to his career. Producers are reportedly looking for ways to phase him out of the show completely in season six by adding new castmates. MTV released a statement insisting that "there are no plans to replace the cast of Jersey Shore," but The Situation may be well-advised to look for another career where GTL is part of the job description.
