The Situation Talks Snooki, Rehab And Sobriety With MTV News
"Jersey Shore" icon Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino told MTV recently that along his road to recovery from addiction, his relationship with Snooki needs work.
The Situation opened up with MTV News recently discussing all from his rehabilitation process to kick a prescription drug addiction, to making amends with the remaining cast - especially the pint-sized mom-to-be that he claims he might've hurt worst of anybody. He voluntarily entered a rehab facility this past March - though he denies he's abused any illegal substances - following multiple previous warnings by MTV executives that he get the monkey off his back or chance being dropped off the show.
By the time his road to recovery began, he claims, he'd hurt the one cast member he seems to regret wounding more than any other. When MTV's Sway asked where he'd start his apologies to her, he answered, "Hurting her feelings. I would never want to hurt that girl's feelings. That girl is very special to me. If I could turn back the clock, which I always say that I have no regrets . . . definitely hurting her feelings . . . and our friendship.
"She had my back and had her back too," he said, acknowledging that he initially gave her concerns the brush-off when she told him she was worried about him.. "We were close for a long time. . . . I am going to say that I am upset that we're not as close as we are today. I care about the girl, for sure."
Nothing in recovery comes easy, he told MTV.
"Your first day is detox," he said of the program he attended. "It's not a pleasurable experience at all. ... In the beginning, for sure, when I was [at the facility] in Utah, I'd wake up and just be extremely disappointed with myself. Like, 'I can't believe I got here. How did I get here?'"
For as much as "Jersey Shore" is deservedly a joke-butt, watch the interview in its entirety. It's an interesting few minutes' look inside the head of an alpha-male party animal confronted with a lifestyle that he admits had gone too far.
