Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino rose to fame on the popular MTV series Jersey Shore. He has since appeared on several other shows, including Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition. He was there with his brothers in order to improve their relationship and get to the root of their issues. As we saw throughout the season, it was quite an interesting journey.

However, what people didn’t see was the REAL Situation. When I interviewed him recently, I got to know the man you don’t get to see on TV. People see him as a wild, partying guy who recently had issues with his family, but he allowed me to see a side of him that was quite different. I got to see a man that, despite what we see on TV loves his family and wants what is best for them. He wanted to do the show so they could improve their relationship and help them  communicate better. For him, it wasn’t about the show or the money, it was instead about trying to become closer to his loved ones. He says he is happy with how things turned out and hopes that things continue to improve.

In addition, I got to see the more positive side of The Situation. Back when he was on Jersey Shore, people saw him as a serial partier, but he says those days are behind him. Right now, he is focusing on becoming a better person, friend and family member. Talking to him made me realize that he is truly a sweet, loving man, one that is getting the life he so desires, someone who is full of love and joy.

The Situation is a perfect example of how people can change for the better. He is a role model in the sense that he shows the past is something that is just that—the past. He reminds us that people can change and that it is important to realize that and not judge on what you think you may know—but instead focus on who they are now. Thank you for the lesson.
