Angelina Pivarnick on The Situation: Popeye on Crack!

by at . Comments

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is in rehab for his prescription drug problem and his former Jersey Shore co-star, Angelina Pivarnick, is not the least bit surprised.

Or particularly sympathetic, apparently.

Ange, who quit the show in each of its first two seasons (for good the second time around), slammed Sitch to the New York Post, terming him “Popeye on crack.”

Angelina and The Situation

“When he was on the show, he got in trouble for prescription pills," she added, saying he's dabbled in drugs for a while. "We were filming in a club in Miami."

"One of the producers said, ‘Hey what was that?’ He had to give them up.”

Asked if The Situation has a drug problem, his rep directed us to his Facebook page, where he came clean about the issue after some initially vague denials.

TMZ first reported that Mike was in rehab. He's now confirmed that.

“I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion,” he wrote, thanking his fans for their support.

Stacy, nobody would be jealous of these idiots. They get paid to whore around, drink themselves into a stupor, and embarass their whole familial line. What's to be jealous about? I'll keep my dignity instead, thanks.
