Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino Worried Rehab News Will Hurt His Nightclub Paychecks

When you get paid for going to the club, how do you avoid the bottle full of bub?

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is struggling with this question, as the Jersey Shore cast member tries to downplay the impact of his rehab stint on future nightclub appearances.

Sorrentino has reportedly been battling a prescription drug and alcohol abuse problem that developed from the hard-partying lifestyle of MTV’s most schadenfreude-friendly program. But his club appearances—some of which can mean a six-figure check for The Situation—also escalated his alcohol abuse, according to sources.

When he gets out of Cirque Lodge in Utah, will he stay clean? Depends on whether the “GTL”-innovator can rake it in sober. Since the reality star leads an expensive lifestyle, Radar Online reports Sorrentino wants to be sure his biggest source of income—appearing at nightclub parties—isn’t hurt by news of his attempt to get clean. Way to focus on the important stuff, Mike.
