Celebrity Big Brother 2012: Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino admits, “I was dependent on prescription pills”
Fans of the summer series of Celebrity Big Brother will no doubt recall that Jersey Shore star Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino became positively obsessed with fellow housemate Danica Thrall during his time in the house…
However, Danica repeatedly pointed out to him – fairly forcefully at times – that he isn’t her type, and of course, the whole debacle became an ongoing row both inside and outside the house as Danica was accused of “leading him on.”
But it seems that the whole experience, and his stint in rehab earlier this year, have helped to change Mike’s life around, and for that, he’s revealed that he feels “very blessed.”
STV report that after explaining that he formerly had an addiction to prescription painkillers, Sorrentino remarked, “I took a lot of things for granted and I I wasn’t making the right decisions.”
However, he added that his decision to go into rehab was a good – if difficult – one.
He said, “Before I started to hurt others, maybe continue to hurt myself, I was able to turn around and fix myself and make a positive change that was needed.
“I was dependent on prescription pills. I knew I needed help and I went to rehab.
“Rehab is the most unbearable, unpleasant experience you could possibly go through…
“But I am the cleanest and healthiest I have ever been since I was 21 or so.”
Good to know. Here’s a reminder of his time in the Celebrity Big Brother house…
Celeb BB is of course back on our screens on January 3rd.
