I’m actually embarrassed to say I was surprised when I read this headline. I think we all knew how insane Mike was, and I even wrote about it in the blog about the season finale. He’s always been weird and crazy, but at the end of Season 5, he takes insanity to a whole new level.

TMZ broke the story last night that ‘The Sitch’ checked himself into a rehab facility for substance abuse after realizing his recreational habits had spun out of control. We don’t know exactly what substances Mike was on, I feel like he might’ve been doing some weird drugs, because clearly his boy ‘The Unit’ was on something special. It might’ve been from the excessive alcohol he’d been drinking…they’d just filmed two seasons back to back but it’s all up in the air right now.

The entire Jersey Shore cast has been extremely busy with all their side projects, and I guess ‘The Sitch’ hit rock bottom and couldn’t move forward. At the end of the day, we hope he recovers…and decides not to do Season 6. Merp.
