Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has landed his own reality show. The Jersey Shore star has already begun filming scenes for his spin-off series, which will focus on the party animal's family life and his wild antics in the New Jersey suburbs.
TMZ is reporting Mike has rented a house during production which is right next door to the pad where his former co-stars' Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni Farley filmed their own spin-off, Snooki & JWoww.
Fans of Jersey Shore are already familiar with Mike's younger sister Melissa, who memorably enjoyed a flirtation with housemate Vinny Guadagnino, and it is thought his older brothers Frank and Marc could also make an appearance.
Mike - who appeared on British reality show Celebrity Big Brother in 2012 - checked into rehab for an addiction to prescription pain killers last year and has been on a mission to turn his life around and stay sober ever since.
Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari no longer speak to each other.
The pair had a turbulent relationship when they appeared on reality show The Hills' together and although they briefly reconciled, they now don't have any contact.
"I don't talk to Kristin anymore," Lauren told Us Weekly.
And it seems Kristin - who welcomed son, Camden, into the world last month - is not the only Hills cast member Lauren doesn't speak to. Audrina Patridge also revealed her relationship with Lauren ended as soon as the reality TV show finished. "I don't really talk to Lauren or see her at all. I think there was a little bit of a falling out. We kind of went our separate ways. The show brought us together and without that show, we all kind of go back to our own thing," Audrina said.
Jersey Shore has been axed. MTV confirmed the forthcoming sixth season of the reality TV show - which will premiere in October - will be its final season, but the network is to commemorate the end of the program with a one-hour special entitled "Gym, Tan, Look Back," on September 6. The episode will feature interviews with the Jersey Shore cast and a sneak peek of the sixth season, plus there will be a look back at some of the show's highlights since it began in December 2009.
The show has inspired a number of spin-offs including Geordie Shore - the English version of the program, which takes place in Newcastle, north east England - and Jersey Shore stars Snooki and Jenni "JWoww" Farley have gone on to create their own reality show, Snooki & JWoww.
Snooki has moved out of the Jersey Shore house because she doesn't want to be surrounded by parties.
The pregnant star - who is engaged to Jionni LaValle - is living in an adjacent house as she was worried about what people would think of her if she stayed, but show chiefs believe her change of address will provide new themes for the program to explore.
"It's not a prison. I know she's concerned about the perception of her being a pregnant woman in a party house. I think that's a common experience among a group of friends when somebody gets pregnant. This is an opportunity to see how she deals with it and how the rest of the house deals with it. The show has always been about following what's really happening in their lives," Chris Linn, MTV's executive Vice President of programming and head of production, told Entertainment Weekly.
However, he reassured that fans shouldn't worry about Snooki losing her humor now she is readying for a more sensible path in her life.
Lauren Conrad saw her early reality television career as a "business opportunity."
The 26-year-old beauty rose to fame on Laguna Beach before going on to be a fashion designer, and she does not regret living her life in front of the cameras because it allowed her to have a "voice."
"There were definitely great perks. I got to travel a lot and I got to meet great people as well. But for me, the reality TV platform was always a business opportunity. Also, it gave me a voice, and I think it's really nice if you can turn that into something more."
Lauren admits the best thing about her career now is that she can do things she really enjoys, like writing her new book The Fame Game: "I'm really happy. It worked out well for me, because I am able to do the clothing line and write these books, things that I love, without the cameras around."
The new season of the Jersey Shore, set in Italy instead of Jersey, won’t be anything like the reality show fans have come to know and love. The mayor of Florence, where the show is scheduled to be filmed, has set forth several rules that could completely change everything.
Mayor Matteo Renzi says that cast will not be allowed to be filmed in bars and clubs in which alcohol is served, and cannot be filmed drinking in public. Jersey Shore will not be filmed in a way that promotes Florence, Italy as a “drinking town,” and should be filmed in a way to promote Italy -- featuring culture and food.
Which means we might have to watch scenes of Snooki eating. With luck, MTV will just go ahead and pull the plug on the show right now.

Looks like that 15 minutes is going to stretch to 30 after all. MTV is moving forward with two new spin-offs from their popular reality series Jersey Shore, and that means Snooki is going to be on TV for awhile longer.
Nicole Polizzi (Snooki) and Jenni Farley (JWoww) will co-star in their own series, while Paul Delvecchio (Pauly D) will headline a series of his own. Both new shows will debut in 2012... ironically, the same year the Mayans predicted the world would end.
Both projects have been ordered to produce 12 episodes and neither is set in the Jersey Shore. Pauly D will take his act on the road “as one of the country’s most in-demand DJs,” according to a press release from MTV. He will “chase his dream with the help of the best friends he grew up with in Rhode Island by his side.” Snooki and JWoww will “deal with life and love when the vacation is over.”

The cast of MTV’s Jersey Shore is about to become representative of Italian Americans to actual Italians. For Season 4, the cable channel is sending its reality stars to the Old World.
Why the switch? “Europe is a fresh spin on a show that continues to reach new heights for us,” said MTV programming vice president Chris Linn.

- Inside the Actors Studio (Bravo, 8 P.M.): "James Lipton conducts an interview with actor and funnyman Jim Carrey, star of The Truman Show (1998), Man on the Moon (1999) and the Ace Ventura films." This would be an example of a "yes man" interviewing the Yes Man.
- Lie to Me (FOX, 8 P.M.): "When Cal (Tim Roth) is asked to determine if a mental hospital patient is being held against his will he begins to question his own sanity." When you go from Reservoir Dogs to a television series, it's natural to question yourself occasionally.
- Castle (ABC, 10 P.M.): "Castle and Beckett interview a top magician (Gilles Marini) after the owner of a magic store drowns in Houdini's legendary water torture tank." Now that's a man who can make magic happen.
Viewers might have been confused on New Year’s Eve, watching the festivities as recorded by MTV.
Snooki was present in Time Square, along with her fellow Jersey Shore cast members … but wasn’t she supposed to be in New Jersey? The reality star’s ball drop did go on the air as planned -- because it was recorded the night before.
Snooki’s ball was removed from Time Square after officials decided that only one ball would be dropping in New York’s famous block. Instead, the Snooks was dropped in her own hometown of Seaside Heights, New Jersey.
