As you've likely heard by now, Mike Sorrentino reported to prison this week to begin serving an eight-month sentence for tax fraud.
As we reported earlier, there's a good chance that Mike will qualify for early release, and the fact that The Situation is sober will likely help his standing with the parole board.
But even with his sobriety, community service and celebrity status in his favor, Mike will still be cooling his heels in the slammer for several months.
Unless, of course, he benefits from some A-list intervention.
In recent months, Kim Kardashian has worked with the Trump administration to gain presidential pardons for non-violent offenders serving long sentences.
Mike isn't exactly Alice Marie Johnson, who was serving a life sentence before Kim intervened, but at the moment, he's probably not too thrilled with his ... situation (sorry).
Fortunately, Sorrentino has friends in high places, and they're doing everything they can to see that he's sprung earlier.
Unfortunately, there's not much they can do other than beg Kim Kardashian for help.
“I heard he’s doing great in there,” Guadagnino told TMZ this week when asked about Mike.
“He was never like really nervous about it.
"So I was praying, I’m like, ‘Oh god I hope once he’s in there, it’s okay.’ But [his wife] Lauren told us that he’s doing great."
Yes, Vin seems optimistic about Mike's ability to serve his time and come out a better man.
"He’s going to be alright. He’s so strong mentally from like his recovery process that it’s working out for him now in jail," Vinny added.
"Mike’s the type of guy where he looks for the positive in every situation. I can picture him in there, watching TV, working out.”
So all-in-all things aren't as terrible as they seem.
But that doesn't mean Mike wouldn't welcome a little help from Kim K:
“Mike is an amazing person," Vin said when asked to make a direct appeal to Kim.
"To me, he’s completely reformed—he’s a great member of society.
"He preaches to kids that have addictions, he’s a big advocate and evangelist for recovery," Vin added.
"He’d be better off out here, helping people. Kim, get on that.”
We're guessing Kim will continue to focus on more desperate cases, but hey -- it never hurts to ask.
