Although he has been a reality television star for over 14 years, Mike Sorrentino’s life was reportedly not an open book. Although he lived publicly, he held many secrets close to his chest.
He explained he wanted to share the importance of being “honest” about how “deep” his drug dependence ran. On the flip side, he will also discuss how hard he worked to find sobriety.
“I wrote about trying heroin, losing the love of my life, finding myself broke and homeless, and how when everything seemed lost, I refused to give up,” Sorrentino declares. He will also dive into his sudden rise to reality television stardom and living in the public eye.
He also promises some “hilarious” behind-the-scenes stories from Jersey Shore, revealing his first impressions of all his castmates. Sorrentino also teased major gossip, including that he had previously dated one castmate before Jersey Shore began.
‘Reality Check’ is Mike Sorrentino’s second book
Although this is Mike Sorrentino’s first attempt at writing an autobiography, Reality Check is his second book. He published his first, Here’s the Situation: A Guide to Creeping on Chicks, Avoiding Grenades, and Getting in Your GTL on the Jersey Shore, in 2010.
Here’s the Situation promised readers advice to up their game regarding GTL (Gym, Tan, Laundry). He also wrote his guide to success as a single guy at the jersey shore. These included “battle plans for the club, a primer on grenades and wingmen, and tips for ridding yourself of all levels of clinger.”
Other information in Here’s the Situation included cooking the perfect lasagna and finding a life partner, “guaranteed” if you followed Sorrentino’s advice.
