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.

It's no big loss if the show goes, believe me, it gives the Jersey shore a real bad name anyway and besides, I never watched one minute of that idiotic show with those stupid bimbos on it anyway so who cares if it gets ripped off the air?, Snoopi's got a puppy in the oven anyway and who wants to see her fatness waddling all over the Jersey shore anyway? Just cancel the freakin' thing and be done with it already!

You can drink and not be an alcholic. dont blame this on the clubs. You can social drink, if you take it over the top then its a problem you brought upon yourself and your not strong enough to stop it on your own.

Sheesh, you guys act like this show was suppose to last forever. It's time to be over. Each and every cast member on that show has totally publicly exposed themselves as has other reality NOW CELEBRITIES. Because of these shows that have commercials, endorsements,clothing lines, colognes, book deals and a slew of other projects they're working on. Let em' go while they're young at least they have time to redeem themselves and their reputations being so young unlike the majority of these other reality celebrity idiots.

Jersey Shore is a sickening waste of time. The people who watch that crap need to go to rehab. If this is what people need to entertain themselves, we are in much sadder shape than it seems.

It's not a secret MTV wants these kids to drink as much as possible and make fools of themselves! However, he appears to be the weak link because he took it to a whole new level. Why didn't the others? Especially Pauly D who is DJ'ing all over the place? He's a loser, plus he was the oldest in the group. Not a young chicken head 19-23 year old.

Ok let's be honest: being involved with the show aggravated an existing condition. MTV should be ashamed of itself for not noticing the problem. If he's smart, he'll quit the show for his own well beig. If he doesn't, then the fault lies with him. The show needs to GO!

All them should just crawl back under the rocks they came from. The DO NOT REPRESENT JERSEY. All lowlife s***baggies. End the show now.

I'm sorry... did I just read that something could possibly "ruin" Jersey Shore? I thought the 'stars' of the show had already done that a long time ago....

If people didn't watch crap like this they would probably be able to get a life of their own.

GOOD ! Get THAT crap off the TV! Talk about disgusting. Stupid, young people ...doing stupid, young stuff. Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some people abuse it. EVERYONE involved with/in that show should be jailed!

SHOCKER!!!! a jersey shore member ends up in rehab for drugs and alcohol. Another one finds out she is pregnant. Will the surprises never end? the only ones that are surprised by this are the ones involved in the show. Like how could they possibly not see their future before them when it was in our faces all the time.
