It's been a busy few years for Jersey Shore Family Vacation star Mike Sorrentino and his siblings. One of them got married, another came out of the closet, and another got busted for tax evasion. So where is The Situation's sister now? And where are his brothers? We've got the details below.
For starters, Melissa Sorrentino, Mike's younger sister, married Michael Sussman in 2015. (You might remember seeing Michael in the family's short-lived 2014 reality show, The Sorrentinos.) We even saw her pick out a gown on a 2016 episode of Say Yes to the Dress. ("What kind of wedding do I want my sister to have?" Mike said in a sit-down with her on that show. "In one word, I would like it to be perfect. In another word, beautiful. Magical.") Since then, Melissa seems to have been radio silent on social media, so we hope she's enjoying marital bliss.
Mike's older brother Frank Jr. aka "Maximo" has also started a new chapter of his life. As revealed in a 2017 episode of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition, Maximo had come out as gay the previous year. Mike, for one, seemed thrilled. "The first time that he had come out of the closet, I bought him, like, a plaque," he said. "I think it was, like, 'I'm proud you're yourself,' or whatever it was. I celebrated the first minute that it happened. I think that deep down inside, he's not comfortable with it himself, possibly. As per the family, the family accepted him right away."

Meanwhile, Mike and his older brother Marc don't have such good news to share. In January, they pleaded guilty to tax crimes — Mike copping up to one count of tax evasion and Marc admitting to one count of aiding in the preparation of a fraudulent tax return. Now Mike faces up to five years in prison, and Marc faces up to three. The brothers' sentencing is scheduled for April 25.
We're glad the Jersey Shore crew is coming back with Jersey Shore Family Vacation, but we're sorry The Sorrentinos left the air so soon. All of these highs and lows would have made for great reality TV!
