The Situation

In Rehab for Alcohol

Problem for 'Jersey Shore'

3/22/2012 12:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Situation is in rehab not just for prescription drugs
The Situation
is in rehab not just for prescription drugs, but also for alcohol, TMZ has learned, and this turn of events could pose big problems for next season's "Jersey Shore."

Sources involved in the situation (sorry) tell us ... the Situation went through detox at a facility before he checked into Cirque Lodge in Utah, and the detox involved alcohol.

Our sources also say The Sitch is "very open" with other patients at Cirque about his drinking.  He discusses how his club appearances escalated his alcohol use.

Now here's the problem for "Jersey Shore."  The Situation and alcohol have been tied at the hip for 5 seasons.  If the show allows The Situation to fall off the wagon to make the show better in season 6, they will look like crass enablers.  If they don't let him drink, there's a good chance they will lose viewers.

Stay tuned.

Michael Jackson Estate

Back Up for Sale -- $23.9 Million


0321_michael_jackson_carolwood_house_launch_EXDThe house where Michael Jackson died is up for sale ... again ... for a whopping $23.9 million.

The estate went on the market Monday and we've learned a "major celebrity" will look at it tomorrow.

We're told the realtor -- Mauricio Umansky, the CEO and co-founder of The Agency in Beverly Hills -- will ONLY show the property to serious buyers who have pre-qualified ... which means they have the dough to buy the property.

The 17,000 square foot house -- which has been on and off the market since MJ died -- is completely empty. It has 13 bathrooms, a pool, guest house and an elevator.

Mike looked like he was more on cocaine or Meth than perscription drugs. You could see that in the last season he was extremely paranoid. He is the oldest member of those alcoholics and is the most immature. Vinnie one of the youngest has a better head on his shoulders than Mike.

I could give a **** about these people who are constantly put on tv to promote sex, drugs' and bad judgement! There are people doing jail time for the same things these people get away with on a daily basis! Shows' like Jersey Shore and others should be taken off the air as they do nothing but teach our young people disrespect and bad judgement! Abby

Situation is another one of us people in this CRAZY world who have issues. As long as he recognized his problem and is in the process of bettering himself, then we can't knock him down for it. We just have to support him and wish him the best. Nothing is impossible Situation, Only you can make your self better, you choose the life you want to live, Nobody else!!! Good Luck!!

I want to thank Mike for getting me off my butt and getting me to work out again. I hate the situps, but I look so good in the mirror, it's worth it. And when you look good, you feel good. And, I lived in Center City Philly when I was younger, and went to The Shore as often as possible in the summer. More fun than a guy should be allowed to have.
