Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino from the “Jersey Shore” has checked into rehab for “rest and recuperation.” So…he needs a break from being drunk…?

**UPDATE**

The Situation is undergoing rehab at the famous Cirque Lodge in Utah for prescription meds, TMZ has learned.

Several sources have told us The Situation is at Cirque for other substance abuse problems … but as of now, we can only confirm prescription meds.

Our sources say The Situation is walking around Cirque, telling people he’s gained weight — and has made specific diet requests from the chef at the facility, hoping to get back into shape for the 6th Season of “Jersey Shore.”

And just to make sure he gets his way — one source tells us, Sitch is making damn sure everyone remembers how wealthy and famous he is.

We’re told this is not the first time The Situation has undergone treatment for substance abuse.

The Wheard: TMZ

The Situation” is in rehab for substance abuse … TMZ has learned.

Sources tell TMZ the “Jersey Shore” star — aka Mike Sorrentino – has checked into an inpatient treatment program.

A rep for the Situation just contacted TMZ to say they are not confirming that Mike is in rehab … just that he “has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule.”

Like most of the ‘JS’ crew … Sorrentino’s been on a non-stop party train since the show debuted on MTV 2 years ago — drinking and making paid appearances at nightclubs all over the world.

Sitch makes anywhere from 15K … up to a whopping 50k per nightclub appearance.

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.

I’m lilD, and that’s the Word Eye Heard. I guess this is what happens when reality tv gets real.
