What Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino’s Jersey Shore Costars Have Said About His Tax Evasion Case

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino‘s Jersey Shore family will always have his back.

On Friday, Sorrentino, 36, is being sentenced Friday after pleading guilty to one count of tax evasion in January. Speaking to PEOPLE in April ahead of the Jersey Shore Family Vacation season premiere, the cast of the hit show weighed in on their friend’s legal case, rallying behind him as best as they could.

“I really, really hope he doesn’t wind up having to go to jail,” said Deena Cortese, 31. “When it comes to prison, I don’t think anybody is prepared for that. I’m hoping that they go easy on him. He became such a better person — and he was a villain for so long. We couldn’t even stand him, and now he’s so different. I can’t wait for people to see how much he’s changed.”

Jenni “JWoww” Farley, 32, said she calls Sorrentino “The Inspiration” instead of “The Situation” now.

“He has such a different view on life now,” she said. “I’m so proud of how far he has come.”

Indeed, Sorrentino has worked hard to turn his life around: The day before his sentencing, he celebrated being 34 months sober after battling a years-long prescription painkiller addiction.

“He’s not an a—hole any more,” said Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 30. “He’s full of life and positive energy.”

“I’m hoping for positive results for him,” she added. “And he survived a house with us raging lunatics sober and so positive, so god forbid he goes, jail should be a breeze.”

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, 32, famously feuded with Sorrentino throughout the show’s original run — but now, he’s proud of his former foe.

“I always knew what he was doing behind cameras and nobody else knew,” he recalled. “I knew about his addictions and his bad habits, and that kind of ate at me. Because here this guy was, causing all this trouble, and it wasn’t really him. It was the demons inside of him.”

“It took him hitting rock bottom to humble him out and bring out the good person inside of him,” he continued. “Some people need that, and I’m sorry for the stuff that he’s going through — but it has made him a better person. We were very thankful that we got to live with Mike this time, and not ‘The Situation.’ ”

Vinny Guadagnino and Pauly “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio agree.

“He’s a completely different person,” said Guadagnino, 30. “I mean, Mike went from being the guy that you didn’t want to be around to being a guy that is actually uplifting and inspirational. He holds his head high — he’s more positive than me.”

DelVecchio, 38, admitted Sorrentino used to be quite the “arrogant a—hole.”

“That’s not the case anymore,” he said. “He’s like a gentleman now, he’s sweet. It’s the weirdest thing for me. Sometimes on the show I’m like, ‘Mike, can you say something negative to somebody? Please?!’ ”

As for how their friend would handle prison?

“That’s some scary stuff, I’ve got to be honest,” said DelVecchio. “I wouldn’t wish what he’s going through on anybody. I really hope that he doesn’t have to go away. I mean, that would be the worst thing that could ever happen.”

But if it came down to it, Guadagnino said he thinks Sorrentino would “handle it better than any of us.”

“I think he would handle it better than a lot of people out there, just because his mind is very positive right now,” he said. “He accepts everything and he takes everything one day at a time. He has all the tools to get through what he’s going through.”

Case Studies: Men’s Retailers on Adapting to the Changing Climate

Soto Store
It’s all about street cred, which is not surprising in this city that lives and breathes streetwear. But what’s made Berlin’s Soto Store stand out from the start was its “accessible mix of street culture and fashion. Getting high-end labels such as Raf Simon, Dries Van Noten, Thom Browne or Acne into this mix was new. And in today’s high-fashion world, that’s what everyone now wants to do,” commented Andreas Koschnike, chief executive officer of Caliroots Group, the Stockholm-based streetwear and sneaker group that bought Soto two years ago.
Koschnike is “friends from way back” with Highsnobiety’s David Fischer, who together with fashion and media movers Philip Gaedicke and Omer Ben Michael opened Soto in 2010 on Torstrasse, still a somewhat off the beaten shopping path in Mitte. “Since I took over, and with 15 years of Caliroots experience under our belts, we’re primarily trying to strengthen operations,” he said. This involves logistics, the buying process and running the online store, “which has surpassed the physical store, though the store remains a big part of our story,” he said.
What he’s not out to change is Soto’s DNA, often described as a blend of tradition and new invention, and which he sums

Cannes 2018: Model Petra Nemcova Makes the Case for Sustainable Red-Carpet Dressing With Chopard, Livia Firth

NEW APPROACH: Model and philanthropist Petra Nemcova has spent two weeks in Cannes attending red-carpet events and premieres in sustainably made gowns and accessories.
As the festival comes to a close, Nemcova said she has seen the message of sustainability grow stronger than ever on the Cannes red carpet and that a shift in mind-set has been brewing throughout the film festival, on the part of celebrities, designers and stylists alike.
“I’ve been seeing things change in the last two weeks, more than ever. Just before the festival, there was also the Met Gala, where models like Gisele Bündchen wore sustainable gowns, so everything is coming together,” said Nemcova, who teamed with Chopard and eco-campaigner Livia Firth on the project to encourage designers to rethink the ways they design for the red carpet, as part of Firth’s ongoing “Green Carpet Challenge” initiative.
“It might not be for everyone but the last weeks were so important for this movement and it’s inevitable that more and more stylists will now start looking for sustainable choices,” added Nemcova, who was joined by the likes of Cate Blanchett and Penélope Cruz in her mission to promote sustainable red-carpet dressing.

Rebel Wilson ‘Crushed’ Court Dress Along With Her Court Case

As Rebel Wilson celebrates victory in her defamation case, we’re celebrating the brilliant look she wore for the occasion.

Wilson sued Australia’s Bauer Media Group after it published a series of articles claiming she “had lied about her age, real name and some childhood experiences,” according to Reuters. 

We admire her courage to stand up for herself and her career. But that dress though!

Wilson’s sharp black and white shirtdress, worn with patent leather flats, is a pitch perfect lesson in courtroom attire. She looked both professional and oh-so-chic.  

The actress also shared a photo on Instagram thanking her family, friends and supporters. “Just crushed my defamation case in Australia,” she wrote.

She certainly “crushed it” when it came to the outfit, too.
