Jersey Shore star, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is being taunted in nightclubs for being sober, as the cast films for the upcoming season of the hit MTV reality television show, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
It was a wild weekend for the Jersey Shore kids as several cast members got into a huge brawl on Friday night, and Deena Cortese was arrested on Sunday for disorderly conduct. Cortese was allegedly dancing in the street and was obstructing traffic. Cameras were rolling as the arrest went down.
As RadarOnline.com was first to report, The Situation had checked into rehab earlier this year because he was battling a prescription pill problem.
“Mike has been consistently taunted by other club goers for not drinking,” a show insider tells RadarOnline.com. “He has been handling it pretty well but it can get embarrassing and awkward for him to consistently be harassed for it. Mike was being heckled on Friday night before the fight broke out. It has been hard for him to deal with at times because his sobriety is still rather new. However, Mike absolutely hasn’t been drinking or taking pills and is committed to staying sober. Mike isn’t going to stay home and not go to clubs, he doesn’t think that going out will harm his recovery.”
“Don’t be surprised if you see Mike begin to spend a lot of time at Snooki’s beach house. She isn’t living with the rest of the cast because she is pregnant. Snooki has been very supportive of Mike and the two are working on mending fences in their relationship,” the source says.
