Maybe Jersey Shore will be a much tamer place when shooting begins this summer on season No. 6. Not only is Snooki pregnant, but Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is in rehab for substance abuse, reports TMZ. A rep confirms he checked into a facility for "much needed rest and recuperation." Sorrentino has been making near-constant nightclub appearances for the last two years, gigs that pay up to $50,000 a pop, notes TMZ. (More Mike Sorrentino stories.)
