Jersey Shore stars Vinny Guadagnino and Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio recently went on Jenny McCarthy's SiriusXM show, where they provided a few updates on former castmate and current prisoner, Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino.

Sorrentino is presently serving an eight-month sentence for tax evasion at the Otisville Federal Correctional Institution in Otisville, New York where he's made some friends.

The "Jersey Shore" stars also mentioned to McCarthy that the Sitch is getting by pretty well, spending his time alongside fellow jailmates like the failed Fyre founder Billy McFarland, who is serving a six-year sentence for organizing the fraudulent festival. Vinny also mentioned that 'The Situation' is in prison with George Garofano, who is serving time for hacking the iCloud accounts leaking nude photos of celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence.

"They play Scrabble together," DelVecchio added.

The question remains as to whether or not 'The Situation' will take McCarthy's advice and actually write a book (or two, as McCarthy mentions) about his experience alongside McFarland and Garofano. FCI Otisville is known for housing high-profile prisoners; Michael Cohen may also spend his prison term there. If that's the case, the Sitch should definitely consider getting that book deal.
