Jersey Shore star Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino is currently serving 8 months behind bars at Otisville Federal Correctional Institution in New York for tax evasion. According to his co-star Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, he is actually enjoying his time locked up while awaiting his September release.
“It’s like he’s in a senior home, he’s playing Bingo, he’s helping people recover in jail,” Polizzi told E! News. “He’s in the gym a lot, so he’s probably gonna come out ripped. He’s not gonna be BDS anymore(‘Big Daddy Sitch’) he’s gonna have his, probably, six-pack again … he’s doing good in there.”
Polizzi went on to say that Sorrentino is “having the time of his life” while serving out his sentence and is helping those with addiction problems. The reality star has been staying in touch with his Jersey Shore cast members via email once a week. His wife, Lauren Sorrentino recently revealed that her and Mike talk on the phone every day, and Mike is “doing great.”

Although Sorrentino has another 5 months left behind bars, he seems to be keeping busy to make the time go by as fast as possible. The cast of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation is currently filming Season 3, and new episodes will return to MTV later this year.
