The Situation

Hit Rock Bottom

While Taping 'Jersey Shore'

3/21/2012 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Multiple sources close to The Situation tell TMZ ... the MTV star's hard-partying ways were worse than ever during the taping of the most recent season of "Jersey Shore" ... and the signs were obvious during the episode when the gang went camping.

TMZ broke the story ... Sitch recently checked into rehab for substance abuse after realizing his recreational habits had spun out of control.

Now, sources close to Sitch tell us ... the reality star had been showing signs of substance abuse for a while ... but "he was getting worse" as the season went on.

We're told ... several people noticed he was "acting paranoid" on the set ... and the unusual behavior was evident in certain Season 5 episodes that recently aired on MTV. During the ep when the gang goes camping, Sitch can be seen acting jittery, sweating profusely and just plain acting bizarre.

Sources say ... cast and crew members on "Jersey Shore" are happy he's getting help ... and hope that he will be healthy enough to join them for the recently announced Season 6.

What are these people famous for, they are losers every last one of them though I have to say Pauly seems to be an okay guy. They are not stars in the eyes of most sane people, just a bunch of messed up, immature, going no where people. Snookie is on the top of that heap.

rehabbing his image?
or
rehabbing his habit?
either way- you give moronic people a ton of money and they will do more moronic things on a larger scale
the money doesn't change who they are- it magnifies it!!
and fame shouldn't change who they are- it just puts a bigger spotlight on how moronic they are!

There is a saying like this "Only one himself knows if the shoes match his feet or not “。If u really love her /him, money ain't nothing but a number for these loved-up A-Listers. My BF and I both think so! He is a banker .We met via Richmingle.C0M, a nice place for women and oldermen who have much money, ,Ever feel that you would best enjoy someone who is in your group? If u are really interested in it, maybe u wanna check it out or tell your friends.

Us folks have to just wait it out. He'll OD one of these days. Guaranteed. Because their drug dealers will ensure it for us.

The more I see this idiot, the more I notice his head looks like a peanut. Must be a reflexion of his brain.

I think it's a publicity stunt. He's blown all the money from Jersey Shore and appearances. The next thing will be a magazine interview to "set the record straight" $$$$$$$$
