Reppin her man! Lauren Sorrentino graced the VMAs red carpet in Mike ‘The Situation’  Sorrentino’s place with the cast of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation by her side on August 26. Mike is currently still in prison, but is set to be released soon.

Lauren, 33, stepped out in a gorgeous purple and black mini dress with gold details. She looked chic in a slicked-back ponytail and Balenciaga handbag. Unfortunately her plus one couldn’t make it. Mike, 37, is currently serving an eight-month prison sentence for tax evasion at Otisville Federal Correction facility in New York.

Dan Wise, a federal prison consultant, told the Asbury Park Press that Mike will be getting out of prison “any day now.” However, the New York native will most likely be released into a halfway house “which is no picnic,” Dan added. “My estimated guess is he’ll be going home any day now between now and early next month to a federal halfway house, where he’ll spend a couple of weeks before he goes to home confinement,” Dan told USA Today Network New Jersey on Monday, July 22.


Although Mike may be a free man sooner than later, the halfway house he is set to go to doesn’t sound like much fun. “There’s no partying, no drugs, nothing,” Dan said of the facility. “He might be able to go home on weekends. Hopefully, he doesn’t get complacent and have a relapse.” If he does go to the halfway house, it will not extend beyond his original September 13 release date. After that, Mike will have 24 months of probation.

Mike and his family have remained in high spirits throughout out this unfortunate situation. Lauren and the Jersey Shore crew are constantly keeping fans updated on Mike and how he is doing behind bars.

Although he couldn’t be with Lauren tonight, we know she is being taken care of by her Jersey Shore family. Mike would be so proud.
