The Situation is out of rehab and adjusting to a new way of living. “I’m at a good place,” the “Jersey Shore” star (a.k.a. Mike Sorrentino) told MTV News. “But it took a little bit to get there. In the beginning? A lot of rainy days, so to speak.” He said he was hooked on prescription painkillers — not alcohol. When he entered rehab, he was “extremely disappointed with myself, like, ‘I can’t believe I got here.’ ”
