Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino initially denied his rehab stint -- but plenty of people on the "Jersey Shore" set knew he was headed down this path. Angelina Pivarnick tells us what she saw during tapings -- and we'll tell you how we broke the story that could seriously change MTV's hit show.

Plus, Rihanna knocking boots with Ashton Kutcher? We have photos of a mysterious late night visit. Also, the documentary "Bully" is pegged with an "R" rating ... while "The Hunger Games" violence only gets a PG-13. Horror movie master Eli Roth joins us to explain why that's totally fair.
