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?
