‘Jersey Shore’ Star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s Memoir is Set to Be Released This Fall: “I Didn’t Leave Anything Out”

“Just call me The Literation from now on…”

Break out the funfettis– Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino announced this week that his autobiography, Reality Check, is being released this fall.

The Jersey Shore Family Vacation star shared the news Thursday on Instagram, promising fans that the tell-all memoir will include “the real story behind The Situation.”

“My tell all memoir, Reality Check, is now the #1 New Release for addiction and recovery,” he wrote. “My hope and belief is that my story of the hell I went through to defeat addiction will save lives. I am so proud to finally reveal my experience, strength & hope.”

As fans of ‘Jersey Shore’ know, Mike previously battled an addiction to pills; however, he celebrated seven years of sobriety in December. Amid starring on the MTV reality series, Mike was also sentenced (in 2018) to eight months in prison for tax evasion crimes

“In this page-turning whirlwind of action-packed, unbelievable stories, Mike paints a raw and uncensored picture of his rise to stardom, steep fall, and amazing renaissance, all told with unwavering honesty,” the book description on its Amazon page reads.

“Divulging everything from drug-fueled orgies to what really happened behind the scenes of reality television’s most loved and most dysfunctional family, Mike’s book reveals all for the first time.” 

I’m not actually sure I want to know more about what happened to the bunny behind the scenes, honestly…

Mike revealed on Instagram that he has been working on his autobiography for more than a year, recalling how he hit rock bottom but never gave up. 

“It was important to me to be completely honest about how deep my drug addition ran and to tell all the crazy stories from those years, as well as how hard I worked to find a lasting sobriety,” he explained. “I wrote about trying heroin, losing the love of my life, finding myself broke and homeless and how when everything seemed lost, I refused to give up.

“I tell some hilarious, behind the scenes stories from ‘Jersey Shore’ and reveal what my first impressions were of all my castmates,” he continued. “Hint: I had previously dated one.” 

“No comment.”

In his memoir, Mike also opens up about Lauren Sorrentino‘s tragic miscarriages. (The college sweethearts went on to welcome a son and daughter– in 2021 and 2023, respectively.) 

Reality Check isn’t the first book Mike has penned, though it’s sure to be a lot deeper than his 2010 release, Here’s the Situation: A Guide to Creeping on Chicks, Avoiding Grenades, and Getting in Your GTL on the Jersey Shore.

We can’t imagine how this gem didn’t make the chest best sellers list.

  1. Hunter Biden did worse and didn’t go
    To jail… just a fun fact about very recent events and political corruption

  2. I’m so proud of him! I’ll definitely read this – it’ll be good to read a positive story. I like the cover as well.

  3. I’ll be reading this memoir. I respect Mike, just for what he’s been able to overcome and face psychologically with his addictions. He’s also owned up to wrongdoings and tries to be a better person.

    I worked for several years in an addiction facility (no degrees, on the lowest totum pole). Mike is an exception, not the general rule. There’s been so many continuous relapses and deaths from people I’ve worked with. The problem is that addicts won’t accept help until they are actually ready.

  4. Mike overcame a lot of stuff. Maybe he will even tell in the book if he and Snooks really hooked up while she was already with her now husband because she so frantically denied that on the show.

    He really changed from a dousche to a loving father. Good for him!

  5. I won’t be reading it but I am proud of him for overcoming addiction – hopefully it might help someone else.
