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.

This guy is an idiot, anyone that calls them self that deserves what they get, I am surprised he is suing the tv show, for possible making him drink like an idiot and act like an idiot...

Have a feeling, he'd be in this "situation" at this age without the show. At least, now he can afford the best treatment, because of the money he's made because of the show.

The "thing" that will make this horrifying show "go away" is the simultaneous "click" as people TURN OFF THEIR TV's and stop WATCHING this crap! We can also rid ourselves of the interminable whining of the Kardashians via the same method! The list goes on: Octomom, the Duggar family, Jon Benet Ramsey (good Lord, let the child rest in PEACE), Casey Anthony, Tim Tebow, Kony 2012...
