Or at least you have probably heard about them.
Frank “The Confrontation” Sorrentino, father of Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has just released a series of videos bashing his son.
And he holds back nothing - dropping the F-bomb every three seconds and saying some of the most hurtful things a father could say about his son.

But after watching all the videos, and reading the press release on his web site, we smell a rat - a bag fat Guido rat.
Here is InfoStar’s theory;
We think this is a well-choreographed Guido move, and that both Mike and Frank know exactly what is going on and are in this together to pull out the $$$.
And we think MTV is right smack in the middle of it all.
Mike “The Situation” is currently on location in Italy starting his third season filming for Jersey Shore. He has already announced his own spin-off show but details are lacking and it’s at least a year out.
His father, Frank “The Confrontation” Sorrentino, is shopping a six figure book deal described in a press release as follows:
“MTV’s Jersey Shore Star, 'Mike Sorrentino – The Situation', to be subject of tell-all book, e-book, and YouTube series by estranged father. 'Confrontation With Situation' to be publicized on a global scale. Rights of printed book, e-book, and mobile book offered for sale. Rights for the printed book, digital book, and mobile book are currently being offered on a country and regional basis”.
The press release mentions Mr. Robert Fletcher, the CEO of Strategic Book Publishing & Rights Agency, a US book marketing, literary agency, and rights company who has been chosen to handle the rights sales and manage the digital marketing efforts.
Okay, follow our logic here.
Put all this bad blood press out there between the two, and let blogs like InfoStar and TMZ chew on it for a while creating a media buzz. Let things blow up in the press with speculation until it looks like there is no way the estranged father and son could ever reconcile and then….. wait for it…….
“MTV announces ‘Confrontation with Situation’ – The explosive last chance reality show for two estranged family members to reconcile and find peace and love again. Based on the best-selling book by Frank Sorrentino.
MTV gives Mike and Frank Sorrentino one last chance to reconcile their relationship – in front of our cameras, in full Guido fashion, for the whole world to see. Can they succeed? Will the family be torn apart forever? Tune in Monday nights to watch ‘Confrontation with Situation.’”
We think the book deal and spin-off show news release is a precursor to MTV creating a REALITY SHOW starring both Mike and Frank Sorrentino under the title, “Confrontation with Situation”.
We knew something didn’t smell right when Mike didn’t say a word about the videos, not even one press release. And Frank looks awfully comfortable in the videos with his granite counters and bottles of wine.
Do you smell a rat? Can you see it? Would you watch it?
