'Jersey Shore': Mike 'The Situation' reveals Michael Cohen bonded with him over smuggling chicken in prison
Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino is finally back in the house and as much as the cast is excited to see him, they are also keen on hearing all the prison stories he has. So, on today's episode (March 19) of 'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation', Mike decided to sit down with his castmates and spill some details about what had happened.
He started off by revealing that while in prison, he was friends with the Russians. He recalled that he used to sit with them and he even learned a few Russian words. However, the cast was most interested in finding out if there had been an occasion when everyone in the prison had been on lockdown.
It is then that Mike spilled some details about the special bond he shared with President Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen, who was sent to prison for a three-year sentence on tax evasion and bank fraud charges. He revealed that everyone was under lockdown because, on the day of his arrival, there were drones and helicopters flying above the prison.
Despite this extravagant arrival, one thing that Mike was focused on was his chicken. He found out that Cohen hadn't had chicken and it was something that Mike wanted. "So I went straight up to Michael Cohen and I was like, 'Listen, Mike. I'm gonna need you to do something for me.' This is his first day. He walked in you know. He said, 'Anything Mike! What do you need?' I said, 'I'm going to need you to smuggle chicken for me,'" he recalled.
Mike then explained to Cohen that he would hide the chicken in his locker and have it after his workout session. "He's like, 'No problem. No problem,'" he said. "Thursday comes around, which is chicken day. Cohen is nowhere to be found. And I'm like, 'Damn. Cohen was chicken on chicken day!' I saw him a couple of hours later, and I was like, 'Yo man, what happened?' He's like, 'Yo man, they know we're trying to smuggle chicken!'"
While the two were not able to smuggle the chicken like they would have hoped, there is no doubt that the two were able to bond over it.
'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation' airs on Thursdays at 8 pm ET on TLC.
