Was Mike a parking lot attendant before becoming one of Gustavo’s henchmen? That’d be one crazy life if he was. Parking lot attendant to drug kingpin henchman/world’s greatest grandpa. This isn’t a surprise as Mike was already announced as a cast member for the show, but it’s still nice to see his beautiful bald head back on my TV screen. ‘Better Call Saul’ has some high expectations to live up to, but hopefully bringing back some of the old cast can recapture the magic of ‘Breaking Bad’.
Mike Tyson is the Latest Celebrity to Endorse Team USA And Now I’m Legitimately Scared For the Citizens of Belgium
My favorite subplot of the World Cup is the random slew of celebrities coming out to support Team USA. The latest one is Mike Tyson, who I can confidently say has no idea what soccer or the World Cup is, but he’s supporting America so it’s OK. I also don’t know if getting Mike Tyson all riled up is a good thing. There’s a solid chance he’s going to go home tonight and look up Belgium on a map and make it his mission to make sure they never breathe life again. There are a lot of things in this world I’d test my might against, but a focused Mike Tyson is not one of them. If I were Belgium, I’d forfeit right now. Keep your country intact while you still can.
Tan Fight – Gym. Tan. Situation!
Mike Sorrentino, also known as The Situation on MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” had a brawl in a New Jersey tanning salon Tuesday that led to his arrest, reports TMZ.
The reality star was getting his tan on at Boca Tanning Salon in Middletown, N.J., when cops were reportedly alerted to a “fist fight” taking place.
Interestingly enough, Sorrentino’s throwdown was with his own brother Frank, a source told the gossip site.
The current situation is that Sorrentino reportedly remains in custody and is getting booked.
Ironically, the former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant is returning to the small screen in “The Sorrentinos,” a reality show that follows his family as they open a tanning salon and share meals, which premieres July 15 on the TV Guide Network.
“This year I was really focusing on my sobriety and getting myself healthy and it feels great to be back on TV,” he told the Daily News in a recent interview about being sober after his 2012 stint in rehab.
A rep for The Situation has yet to respond to the Daily News’ request for comment.
Boca Tanning has declined to comment on the matter, but offered information about tanning packages to The News.
Old habits die hard, I guess. If you were to tell me that ‘The Situation’ got into a fight and gave me three guesses on the location I’d guess a tanning salon three times. People like ‘The Situation’ don’t evolve. They don’t learn from their mistakes. Their brains function on a primal level, except instead of looking for food and shelter, they go tanning and look at themselves in the mirror. And fight their brothers at tanning salons. I usually try to stay away from negative town on here, but I can not be rooting harder for his reality show to fail. Please stop with the reality shows. For the love of Bill Paxton. Just bury that shit on HGTV or something so the younger generation doesn’t watch and try to imitate him.
P.S. How about the hustle swag from the tanning salon? Sorry can’t talk about the fist fight, but have you seen our summer specials?
WHY? – Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is back with his first unscripted series since MTV’s blockbuster Jersey Shore. The six-packed reality star and his family will star in The Sorrentinos on the TV Guide Network (video below).
Unlike Shore, the premise focuses less on partying and more on The Sitch spending time with his New Jersey family. The cast includes Mike along with Linda (his mother), Marc (middle brother), Melissa (sister), and Frank (older brother).
“The reality of the situation is … for the first time, fans and the general public, will be able to see and, well, meet Michael Sorrentino,” Mike Sorrentino said. “This next chapter of my life is about sobriety and family, and I’m stoked to take people on this journey with us.”
Sorrentino was one of the biggest breakout performers on Shore when it became a national phenomenon in 2009. He embraced the gym-tan-laundry-drinking-dating lifestyle of the hard-partying series, and with a myriad of endorsement deals for brands such as Vitamin Water and Reebok, started to rake in an estimated $5 million a year. Sorrentino went to rehab in 2012 for treatment of an addiction to prescription pain killers; Jersey Shore concluded on MTV later that year.
The Sorrentinos asks: After you’ve been one of the biggest reality stars in the country, what happens next? Since the conclusion of Shore, Sorrentino has tried his hand as a character actor in the webseries New Stage but has otherwise been off the reality TV grid. “We’re excited to take viewers, who met Mike in a very different time and place of his life, and bring them along for this ride with The Sorrentinos,” said Brad Schwartz, president of entertainment for TVGN. “Family is everything and it’s something people universally come back to no matter who you are and what you do. Fame just makes the stakes higher and more public.”
Production begins next week on eight episodes with no premiere date yet set. Here’s a “sizzle reel” pilot presentation that was shot for the network. Meet The Sorrentinos:
I’m glad this guy is clean now but the only thing worse than watching him drunk and pilled out on the Jersey Shore is going to be watching him sober. Is there really no other show we could put on TV? We really have to watch ‘The Situation’ and his brothers argue over who’s steroid fueled body looks better? His sister being semi hot is the only redeeming storyline I can think of that I’d be interested in. He’s literally the luckiest guy in the world to be in the position he’s in: he got picked out of a crowd to be on the Jersey Shore when there are literally thousands of other people just like him. What makes him stand out, his abs? I’m sure you could go to every tropical city in the country and find 100 guys with the same abs. Same goes for his haircut and his general asshole demeanor. I hate this. I hate it and it stinks.
Couple of handsome fellas right there. I wanted to think I’d be surprised but I 100% expected Gomes to wear something loud and he did not disappoint. Napoli is his usual handsome bearded self as well. Also not surprised they took a picture in front of the portrait of Clinton. Party animals and renegades stick together.
In the Best News You’ll Hear Today, Jonathan Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut) Joins ‘Better Call Saul’ As Series Regular
Half Measures – Jonathan Banks, who played the gruff fixer on AMC’s Breaking Bad, has signed on for a series regular role on the prequel spin-off Better Call Saul, our sister site Deadline reports.
Banks will reprise his role as righthand man to/enforcer for Bob Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman; Breaking Bad fans will remember Mike as someone who (Spoiler alert!) was killed by Walter White toward the end of the original series’ run.
The network previously announced that the one-hour spin-off, scheduled to bow in November, ”will focus on the evolution” of the morally-challenged counselor before he became Heisenberg’s defender.
The prodigal son has returned. Mike was my favorite character on ‘Breaking Bad’, and I’m still not over what happened to him by the lake (damn you WW!). But God has answered my prayers and brought him back, this time pre Walter White. ‘Better Call Saul’ was already on the top of my list for fall 2014 TV shows, and my excitement for the show has grown even more with the addition of Saul’s enforcer.
