Before his "Dancing With The Stars" debut, "Jersey Shore" star Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino was on Long Island this weekend showing off his new Bentley. Sorrentino managed to turn the purchasing of a new car into both a party and a money-making opportunity, showing up at the GLO Nightclub to show the 'Unique Situation' Bentley to the public. At the nightclub in Westbury, New York two fully customized Bentleys were presented to Mike and his brother, Marc by Will Castro of Unique Autosports. Both cars are used Bentleys purchased by Mike Sorrentino. According to TMZ, Sorrentino bought a 2008 Bentley coupe for himself and a slightly less expensive 2008 Bentley for his brother for a total of around $100,000.
The Situation's mother was on hand as the Bentleys were presented. The Daily Mail reveals that The Situation does not drive a stick. Why an automatic? "He needs to keep his hand free for the ladies." Sorrentino also used this occasion to give his sister Melissa a new, white Range Rover.

According to Ronnie himself "you've got the watermelon, the cherries, some ice, cranberry juice" and of course plenty of vodka to start off what often becomes a "filthy night." Housemate Pauly D refers to the drink as the "root of all evil" because of its tendency to sneak up on you.
