Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino had the hookup in prison because of a well-placed friend, he revealed on Thursday’s episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.

At a welcome home dinner thrown for him by castmates, he recounted how he ate well and felt protected after Nino Giaimo, his pal Vinny Guadagnino’s ‘Uncle Nino,’ made some phone calls.

Mike, 37, was released from a federal prison in Otisville, New York, in September 2019 after serving eight months on a tax evasion charge.

He thanked Uncle Nino profusely for his help, as the man had ‘put the word out’ among his associates that Mike was to be treated well in prison, and people had been kind to him. 

‘While I was in prison, the fellas really looked out for me,’ he told Nino, mentioning names that were bleeped out. ‘They sat me down, and I’m telling you they told me to tell you, “Tell Uncle Nino that we looked out for you. We heard you put out the word, and we looked out for you.”’

‘There wasn’t a day in prison that I didn’t go without good food,’ Mike recalled, phrasing it wrongly but meaning to say that he always ate well.

‘Or double the amount!’ Nino cracked.

‘Or double the amount,’ Mike agreed. ‘And listen, the whole experience, it was not fun at any particular time, but I appreciate you putting out the word.’

In private, Mike reflected, ‘Between the roomies coming to visit me in prison and the squad looking out for my wife, I have friends that are family…and that’s the most important thing.’

He’d gotten thousands of letters while in prison and wanted to be an example for people struggling with their own issues, he explained.

To the cameras, Mike added that as he went into the prison, he told himself, ‘You are a superhero in your own movie, and it’s your job to save yourself. What are you gonna do?’

But Nino had some equally useful advice to offer him.

‘I told you one thing before you left,’ Nino reminded Mike after dinner. ‘What was it? “Blow jobs don’t count.”’

In a confessional, Mike swore, ‘There was no giving and no receiving… no blow jobs happened of any sort.’

Vinny’s mother Paola, who cooked the dinner, called Nino ‘a degenerate,’ and he chugged a bottle of wine before blowing kisses to the girls and looking drunkenly for his ride.

Over dinner, Mike told his friends a little about his life behind bars, with some funny asides.

Once, he said, he saw a hair-like image in front of his eye, and when he asked a Russian ‘doctor’ inmate what it was, the man said Mike was bleeding from the brain.

Mike went for a second opinion, and heard from another inmate that it was a phenomenon called a ‘floater,’ learning then that the first man was in prison for impersonating a doctor.

She had just asked JWoww, 34, Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, 32, and Deena Cortese, 33, to be bridesmaids at her wedding to fiancé Chris Larangeira, but something seemed off.

‘F*** marriage!’ Angelina yelled to everyone. ‘But for me, it’s good, though.’

Her pals grew concerned when Angelina’s ‘best guy friend,’ Mike, showed up to their girls’ night.

‘It’s very awkward to me what’s going on,’ Deena observed. ‘Why is this guy here? So weird.’

JWoww saw Angelina leading Mike by the hand and asked him why they were holding hands.

‘I’ve known her for like, 10 f***ing years,’ Mike insisted. ‘We were not holding hands.’

Snooki was worried, and she told the cameras: ‘Honestly, I’m excited to be Angelina’s bridesmaid. I love the b****. I think she’s awesome. But when is she gonna learn?’

‘My guy friend came out, he was right down the block, I said, “Stop over!”’ Angelina said. ‘I didn’t do anything wrong. Holding hands… is not cheating.’

She drunkenly peeled the label off a champagne bottle and grumbled to Mike.

‘I’m like, Chris wasn’t here,’ she suddenly said. ‘He left me here. F***ing d***. Jerk off.’

‘Stop,’ JWoww urged, cautioning her, ‘You’re just not talking good about Chris.’

In private, Deena affirmed that Angelina ‘kept talking bad about Chris,’ saying she had already told her friends how Chris once recorded his buddy having sex with a girl.

‘She does inappropriate things all the time,’ Deena said. ‘I like Chris and Angelina together. I don’t want to see a really good relationship get torn apart. I want her to know that there’s girl code, guy code, then there’s the relationship code. And you don’t cross those lines.’

Concerned: Snooki was worried, and she told the cameras: ‘Honestly, I’m excited to be Angelina’s bridesmaid. I love the b****. I think she’s awesome. But when is she gonna learn?

Uh oh: Angelina pressed, to which Chris replied, ‘I’m f***ing p***ed right now,’ and hung up

On the bus home, Angelina’s friends gave her a hard time for the things she’d been saying.

Angelina defended her actions, pointing out that Chris knew she had male friends, and that if she FaceTimed him, he would say ‘Mike’s my boy.’

She called Chris, and started to tell him that Mike had been there, but he overheard Snooki saying, ‘He kept touching you, and I hated it.’

‘Why’s he even touching you to begin with?’ Chris asked Angelina.

She confessed then that she’d also told everyone Chris liked to videotape his pal ‘banging girls.’

‘What do you think?’ Angelina pressed, to which Chris replied, ‘I’m f***ing p***ed right now,’ and hung up.

‘Don’t be a jerkoff,’ she shouted into the phone, before admitting her friends were right.

Heated: ‘Don’t be a jerkoff,’ she shouted into the phone, before admitting her friends were right

Vinny Guadagnino, 32, and DJ Pauly D, 39, also wondered at Angelina’s behavior that evening.

‘The way I look at it is this: “Don’t get married so you don’t get divorced, so you don’t have to go to a divorce party,”’ Pauly said.

‘You know what they say,’ Vinny cracked. ‘”Marriage is grand, but divorce is 100 grand.”’

The next morning, Pauly woke up his hungover friends with a megaphone, as JWoww moaned, ‘Everything hurts.’

As a joke, Pauly convinced Angelina that her breath was bad, then offered her some ‘mouth wash’ that he had filled with ‘deep throat numbing spray’ from Mike’s ‘baby-making basket.’

Vinny wanted to treat Mike to a great post-prison meal, so he asked Paola to make her chicken cutlets, one of Mike’s favorite dishes… but not to go crazy cooking, or invite Uncle Nino.

Paola made a huge spread, with chicken cutlets, mashed potatoes, baked ziti, corn, broccoli rabe, roasted peppers, stuffed mushrooms, and what Vinny called ’14 loaves of bread.’

‘There’s enough for 50 f***ing people,’ said Nino, who insisted on tagging along.

Whoops: As everyone marveled over how good the meal was, Deena put ketchup on her chicken cutlets, which Vinny called ‘sacrilegious’ in Italian culture

Mike, who lost 40 lbs. in prison, had no idea Paola would be cooking for him, and swore he wasn’t going to cheat on his diet ‘after putting in so much work for eight months.’

‘I’m excited to eat a healthy meal,’ he told his wife Lauren Pesce, 35, as they pulled in.

When he saw the food, and Paola, he hugged her with emotion, saying, ‘Oh my God, this is the best surprise ever. I guess today is cheat day.’

As everyone marveled over how good the meal was, Deena put ketchup on her chicken cutlets, which Vinny called ‘sacrilegious’ in Italian culture.

‘If I ever did that, my grandfather would smack me across the face,’ Vinny said.

Angelina sat quietly at the end of the table, worried about her wedding, to which she had invited 250 people.

The next morning, she was supposed to go try on wedding dresses with her friends.

Before they left, she called Chris, who accused her of trying to break them up.

‘It was my bad for f***ing bringing Mike out,’ she told him. ‘I should have never did that.’

JWoww finally intervened, taking the phone to tell Chris, ‘I know you truly love her. I know she truly loves you. Do any of us truly think she did anything with Mike? 100 percent not.’

Chris calmed down, and JWoww urged Angelina to get dressed for her day of shopping.

‘I thought we were doing fancy things like an adult today,’ she said.
