The Situation’s Dad Legally Apologizes For Being The Worst

If there’s hope for a man who has been put in a friendly headlock by Michael Lohan, then there’s hope for us all. In a surprising reversal for such a prominent member of the Terrible Hollywood Parent Club (First rule: never talk about THP club), The Situation’s dad apologized for using his son’s image to insult him in the press, filling a settlement to end the on-going feud with his son. Wow, and here we thought giving Mr. Situation any attention would have the same effect as water on a gremlin: it might have been a mistake, but it’s too late to do anything about it now. Oh, and you might have to blow up a movie theater to get rid of him.

The Situation sued Frank Sorrentino back in May after his dear old dad released several videos attacking his son, as well as launched TheConfrontation.com, just so there would be a public record of how awful he is. And we thought Ronnie‘s mom calling him drunk in the middle of the day was bad. Also, tragic. The Situation has subsequently dropped his lawsuit, though Papa Sorrentino’s publishing agent Robert Fletcher does have to pay $5,000 as part of the settlement. As for Fletcher’s own kids, well, we’re assuming they can go ahead and hold their breath.
