When Jersey Shore returns this summer, it'll be a very different Situation.

Now on the road to recovery, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is opening up for the first time about his stint in rehab earlier this year in an interview.

He comes clean in the sit-down about the root of his problems.

Sitch-uation

"My addiction was prescription painkillers. At first, I thought it gave me energy, helped me," he tells MTV. "Being in this business is not easy. I made a mistake by picking a substance over what I previously chose, which is fitness."

Mike adds that he never had a problem with alcohol or cocaine and even says he was barely drunk on the show ... a dubious claim, but still.

"You can't get girls if you can't speak to them," Situation says.

Mike says despite some of their epic fights, the cast has all been supportive: "At the end of the day, all the kids care for each other," he says.

Sitch says he will be back this summer and fist pumping like a fiend at Karma. As for his pregnant co-star, Snooki's getting her own house.

Snooki is not quitting Jersey Shore, but she is evicting herself, so to speak.

She'll no longer be living in the same biohazard cesspool of disease as the rest of the cast, as she's secured her own private place nearby.

The expectant mom is taking her pregnancy seriously, choosing to live NEAR the Jersey Shore house rather than IN it for obvious reasons.

Snooki Highlights

Surrounding yourself with drunken, loud roommates while pregnant? Not the best move. Surprisingly, Snooki realized this! Amazing, no?

Due in early fall, filming this summer for Snooki will mean she'll be in prime popping position. All the more reason to have a pad of her own.

Between this and a sober Situation (who just got out of rehab), it's shaping up to be the lamest, and possibly last, season of the Shore.

Who wants to see adults making mature decisions?! That's what her new reality show is for. Speaking of, watch the Snooki & JWoww trailer!

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley will soon be back for a new MTV spinoff, documenting their transforming lives away from Jersey Shore.

In the first trailer for Snooki & JWoww (reportedly titled Snooki & JWoww vs. The World, according to some sources), the BFFs decide to move in together.

Shortly after they find an apartment, however, Snooki tells her roommate the news that shocked the rest of us as well: "I'm pregnant and engaged."

JWoww then accompanies Snook and Jionni LaValle to her first ultrasound appointment, where the spawn of Snooki makes his or her reality TV debut in utero.

"Honestly I really didn't know that I could make a baby," Snooki says, "so the fact that I can reproduce is very scary." That's putting it mildly, girlfriend.

Though Polizzi's life took an unexpected turn, friends are forever. "I would die for you," she tells Farley. "But let's just make sure that doesn't happen."

While they're ready to take the next step with the men in their lives (JWoww is still with longtime BF Roger Williams), they're looking at this as a last hurrah.

"Me and Jenni have the rest of our lives to stick our heads up Jionni and Roger's asses," Snook says. "This is the time for us to enjoy life as best friends."

Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino admits Snooki's pregnancy is not something he saw coming ... and he was shocked ... but hey, he's not about to bash the girl.

“I didn’t expect it. But, obviously, I’m not going to hate. This is real-life stuff,” he said.

Vinny, who is busy promoting his new book, Control The Crazy: My Plan to Stop Stressing, Avoid Drama and Maintain Inner Cool, also praised his 24-year-old roommate’s “super-human” ability to anything ... or anyone. Just kidding.

In all honestly, she thinks Snooki will be a great mom.

“She can do extraordinary things,” he said. “In a partying way, she can drink more than anyone I’ve ever met; she can stay up for longer periods of time. She’s super-human. If she applies that to her parenting, she’ll actually be a good mom.”

“She’s like a human I’ve never encountered before,” he added.

That's high praise ... mostly. We think.

Meanwhile, Vinny is also opening up about his battle with chronic anxiety and depression, which caused him to briefly leave Jersey Shore during Season 5.

As if the Jersey Shore house wasn't trashy enough based on its residents, the exterior of the Seaside Heights, N.J., structure has been vandalized repeatedly.

The realtor for Danny's house says hoards of people keep tagging the outside walls with their names and random, lame comments like, "We love you Snooki."

Seriously? You graffiti the Jersey Shore house and that's all you got?

Shore House

The damage at Case de Duck Phone is so profuse that the realtor is forced to repaint the guido STD cesspool ... on a weekly basis. So yeah, it's a problem.

It gets worse, too. People have been stealing roof shingles as souvenirs (?!) and are often caught messing with the front door when the house is vacant. 

Local police are on the lookout for nefarious fans of the MTV series, which is set to begin filming again this summer ... when it's no longer their problem.

It's only the realtor's responsibility when the show is NOT in production. MTV and 495 Productions must take care of the property while the freak show films.

As if they don't have enough issues, with a pregnant Snooki, The Situation's drug problem and a general lack of hygiene and human decency in that place.

The Situation has been discharged from the Cirque Lodge rehab center in Utah, where he was receiving treatment for substance abuse, according to reports.

Now the real test for the Jersey Shore star ... STAYING clean.

Sitch, a.k.a. Mike Sorrentino, checked in to the famous clinic weeks ago. Clearly he tried to keep it on the DL, but after the story leaked, he admitted he had to "get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion."

Contemplative Sitch

The Situation's drinking problem, while never addressed by the star, was also said to have become a problem multiple times over the course of five seasons.

It's unclear if he's quit boozing for good, but if so, that's going to be quite a twist for a reality show predicated around binge drinking and subsequent boning.

Hence the rumors that Jersey Shore may be phasing out Situation (and pregnant Snooki) after the new season, which they are both set to film this summer.

We know Snooki will cut a bitch if you mess with her kid ... but a pregnant girl in the Shore house? With a sober Mike? Can that really make for quality TV?

Tell us: Would you watch Jersey Shore without Snook and Mike?

MTV had warned and even threatened to replace The Situation, who's currently in rehab for prescription drug addiction, more than once for excessive drinking.

According to sources cited by TMZ, producers from MTV and 495 Productions sat Situation (Mike Sorrentino) down initially while filming Season 2 back in 2010.

Even on a series revolving around insane partying and banging each other 24/7/365, they felt that Mike's drinking had become a problem for the show.

Sitch promised to pull himself together, allegedly, but during Season 3, producers had to speak with him again, this time threatening to replace him.

Mike then showed promise in Italy during Season 4, but once the crew got back to the States for the just-completed Season 5, he was back to his old ways.

Possibly acting more erratic and ridiculous than ever, come to think of it.

This prompted another sit-down and another threat of recasting, but the message got through this time, as The Situation's in rehab and sobering up.

Of course, that now gives MTV and 495 a different problem, given that the premise of the show the cast's insane partying and banging of each other.

Hence the reports that Jersey Shore may be phasing out The Situation (and pregnant Snooki) in the coming season ... which the network has denied.

What do you think? Would you watch JS sans Snook & Sitch?

Plenty of people are seriously freaked out at the notion that Jersey Shore star Snooki will be raising a child soon, but Vinny Guadagnino is not one of them.

In fact, he's ready to baby proof the Jersey Shore house.

Vin said he'll do whatever he can to help his friend: "We're all family. Whatever she needs. We'll turn the smush room into a nursery and there we go."

In all seriousness, he says Snooks "will be a great mom. She's already drastically changed her life. I think this is a good wakeup call. I think she'll be great."

Getting. It. In.

Now that Snooki's engaged to Jionni LaValle and all, that probably puts a damper on her occasional smush room sessions with Vinny. Probably for the best.

Guadagnino was less in the loop when it came The Situation, who announced last week that he's seeking treatment for his prescription drug problem.

"I don't speak to Mike in general," he admitted. "So I haven't spoken to him. I don't have a sense of how he's doing now. But I wish him all the best."

Guadagnino shot down chatter that both Snooki and The Situation will be phased out of the show given both of their life-changing circumstances.

"I don't know if they will be there or not," he said. "But I have a great feeling that they're both going to be back there and nothing will change."

Would you watch Jersey Shore sans Snooks and Mike?

With Snooki pregnant and engaged (!) and The Situation in rehab, the producers of Jersey Shore are obviously concerned. For the stars, sure, but mostly for the show.

Apparently they are worried the show will lose its edge - being a show about a bunch of drunk, sex-crazed rowdies - and are looking to phase the two out.

Newer, crazier cast members are apparently being sought.

  • Yeah We Got a Situation!

MTV released a statement earlier this week, after Mike admitted his substance abuse problem, claiming it expects the entire cast to return for Season 6.

However, sources close to 495 Productions say the company is quite concerned about the recent events and wants to keep things fresh above all else.

If that means bringing in new JS cast members to help transition the show into a new generation, while still keeping old fans hooked, then so be it.

495 plans to limit Snooki and Situation's roles on the new season, giving the new cast members more screen time instead. Filming begins this summer.

Jersey Shore has been in the news a lot lately for reasons having nothing to do with the show, making last night's reunion special feel a bit pointless.

With Snooki pregnant and Mike in rehab, the two top stories among MTV's band of guidos are playing out in real life, not in front of reality TV cameras.

Still, the gang assembled for a postmortem of sorts in the aftermath of the fifth season, which ended last week. And there certainly a lot to discuss.

Jersey Shore Season Five Cast

Highlights from the Jersey Shore reunion special included:

  • Snooki continuing to deny servicing Mike, saying, "If I was that horny, I'd just go to my room and masturbate." Sitch also stood his ground: "I'm not a liar, I'm not. And I'm not gonna be made out to look like one, that's it." 
  • Mike was again dubbed the villain of the house, after which he said he felt emotional and left out. JWoww suggested that he apologize for the shady things he's done, but Mike instead walked off set. Way to go man.
  • JWoww convinced him to com back out, and Mike did apologize. Aww.
  • BFFs Pauly and Vinny reminisced about pranks, stalkers and the like.
  • JWoww is still happy in love with Roger Williams.
  • Snooki is, of course, still with Jionni LaValle.
  • Ronnie Magro and Sammi Giancola are no longer in a relationship because their "schedules became hectic." As for who ended it? Mixed messages.

Just a few months until Jersey Shore season six films!
