“You know what, yeah … they like him and he gets his pick of all the food and stuff like that,” Pauly D told Us Weekly. “They really like him in there so I’m happy about that so that’s a plus.”

“I have never had to do that before, visit somebody in prison … but it wasn’t too bad considering, I mean, he’s doing great. He’s in great spirits, he’s just happy to put this past him and he’s almost out of there. It went by so quick. He’s doing great and I’m looking forward to partying with him when he gets out,” he continued.

Pauly D revealed that his friend is spending time working out and reading. “He is definitely in the gym in there and is eating well, working out like twice a day, making some friends in there, said he is doing a lot of reading, I think he’s doing the classes too, the rehab classes in there,” he said.

Pauly D shared that Sorrentino’s wife, Lauren, “gets to visit often” and that the two look “forward to starting a family when he gets out.”
