Mike 'The Situation'

Back in January, Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino turned himself in for his eight-month prison sentence for tax evasion. His co-stars Vinny Guadagnino and Pauly D recently stopped by The Jenny McCarthy Show to talk about Sorrentino, saying they speak to him "every day."

They two revealed that Mike has been hanging out with another celebrity behind bars, and it just so happens to be Billy McFarland, the mastermind behind the disaster that was Fyre Festival. McFarland was famously sentenced to six years in prison in October 2018 for wire fraud. The same prison where both McFarland and Sorrentino currently reside is also where Trump's ex-lawyer Michael Cohen will serve his three-years. Guadagnino added the Situation is "in there with the guy that leaked Jennifer Lawrence's nudes, that hacked her phone."

Evidently there's a "special app" Mike uses to talk to his friends from a "computer room that he can go to throughout the day." As for how Sorrentino is doing in general, Pauly said, "He's in such good spirits, because he sees Lauren once a week—his wife—and then he has so much to come home to. ... He has a job—he'll be filming—so he just wants to get it over with and do his time."

Before turning himself in, the Situation provided fans with his mailing address while incarcerated, and stressed in a video, "The comeback is always greater than the setback."
