The Jersey Shore without Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino? Say it isn't so? Well it is so according to TMZ. They are reporting that 495 productions will be phasing the two of them out over the course of the next season and looking to hire new housemates or the 7th season.
Although 495 had no official comment, the fear among show insiders is that with Snooki being pregnant and The Situation doing a stint in rehab to fight a prescription pain killer addiction the show will "lose its sex-crazed alcohol-fueled edge."
Snooki has told Us Weekly magazine that she is no pregnant and engaged. She only said it last month but has known that she was pregnant since January.
The Situation found himself on 495's hit list after checking himself into rehab to treat an ongoing substance abuse problem.
The Situation told SitchNews.com,
"I want to set the record straight. I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion. I have spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule. I appreciate my fans support and love you guys."The entire cast of Jersey Shore will involved in the filming of Season 6, including Snooki and the Situation, but from what TMZ is reporting the pair will receive dramatically less screen time and will be phased out by the end of the season. Other cast members will see their screentime increase. Season 6 begins filming this summer.
