Jersey Shore co-stars Pauly “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio and Vinny Guadagnino gave an update on Mike Sorrentino’s time in prison.
On Wednesday’s episode of The Jenny McCarthy Show, the two revealed what it’s been like for their friend who is locked up. Sorrentino is serving an eight-month prison sentence for tax evasion. He turned himself in on January 15 at the Otisville Federal Correctional Institution in Otisville, New York.
“We talk to him every day,” Guadagnino said. “There’s an app where we can talk to him — he has a computer room that he goes to throughout the day. He sends me positive vibes. He gets me through my day, while he’s in prison.”
“He’s in such good spirits because he sees Lauren [his wife] once a day, and he has so much to come home to … so he just wants to get it over with and do his time. He’s happy,” DelVecchio, 38, added.
“It is a getaway and it’s not what I thought it was going to be. There’s no bars. There’s not that many people…it’s like a vacation from your life,” he said.
Guadagnino revealed that Sorrentino is in the same prison as Billy McFarland, the fraud who orchestrated the disastrous Fyre Fest.
“He is in there with the guy from the Fyre Festival,” Guadagnino said. “And he’s in there with the guy that leaked Jennifer Lawrence’s nudes, that hacked her phone.”
McCarthy replied, “Tell Mike he’s got to get as much information on the Fyre Festival. He can write two books.”
“They play Scrabble together!” DelVecchio added.
“Imagine what he’s learning in there from all these guys,” Guadagnino said.
