In 2012, Sorrentino came out publicly with his opioid addiction after deciding to check into a treatment program. The reality star — who is known as one of the party-loving members of the Jersey Shore cast — relapsed over a year after leaving treatment before committing himself to sobriety again in 2016.

In March 2020, Sorrentino and Pesce opened up to E! Pop of The Morning about how he kept up with his recovery process while serving time in prison for tax evasion in 2019.

“The guys in person were like, 'What? Who smiles all day in prison?' And I was just grateful to be alive, grateful to have another day to wake up, I was also grateful to be with this woman next to me," he said of his wife. "We had such a beautiful wedding and I had such good memories to sort of draw from. And also, I had hope that once I got out that I would really take advantage of my situation and sort of strive for a comeback."

He has tried to remain on the straight and narrow since he made a graceful return for the MTV spinoff: Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, which features fan favorites Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, Jenni ‘Jwoww’ Farley, Vinny Guadagnino and more.

Earlier this year, it was announced that Sorrentino was nominated for two 2021 People’s Choice Awards, including The Reality Show of 2021 and The Reality TV Star of 2021, which Polizzi is also up for.

“Either one of us should be able to take home the trophy for the Jersey Shore squad,” he told E! News back in October. “It would be a win for the family.”
