Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, the 34-year-old reality star from Jersey Shore, and his family have had their share of drama over the years. Things got so dramatic in 2014 that TV Guide Network gave them their own reality TV show, The Sorrentinos. Mike’s brothers Marc and Frank co-starred. Now the three brothers are giving reality TV another shot on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars: Family Edition.
When the Sorrentino brothers show up at the Marriage Boot Camp mansion, they meet Teen Mom Farrah Abraham and her divorced parents. Frank Sorrentino introduces himself as Maximo and explains that he changed his name after a family member used his social security number and stole his identity. After his brothers accuse him of “playing the victim card,” Farrah asks Maximo if he’s gay. Mike says, “We don’t know,” and mentions that he was once married (to a woman) “for 5 or 10 years.” Maximo tells Farrah, “I’m fully gay and I’d never go back.” Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars: Family Edition airs Fridays at 9pm on WEtv.
