Sorrentino began his 8-month sentence in January.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is staying positive while locked up.
His “Jersey Shore” co-star, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, told E! News the reality star is “having the time of his life” in prison and keeping busy by working on his body and helping other recovering addicts.
“It’s like he’s in a senior home, he’s playing Bingo, he’s helping people recover in jail,” Polizzi said. “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 said she and her castmates have been keeping in touch with Sorrentino through email once a week. He reportedly also spends his time reading fan mail.
“Mike would like to thank all of his fans worldwide for the unbelievable outpouring of love & support,” his wife, Lauren Sorrentino, tweeted via his account. “We speak everyday & he’s doing great. He’s received thousands of letters, he won’t be able to respond to everyone, but wanted to express his gratitude.”
