Like Thomas Edison and his lightbulb… or Bethenny Frankel and Skinnygirl Margarita… Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino just had his first
fully-formed thought stroke of genius ever! According to sources, he plans to open up a chain of all-in-one GTL salons, where you can literally gym, tan, and laundry all under one roof. The gym/tanning/salon/laundromat will open in Miami and New Jersey and then will expand to other locations (obviously Staten Island is next on their list).
I have to give it to The Situation: that is one genius idea. If we know anything from reality TV, it’s that we will buy anything that already technically exists, so long as you slap the celebrity’s name on it, be it Pinot Grigo (Ramona Singer), a toaster oven (Sonja Morgan) (I mean, seriously? A toaster oven?), a cookbook for Italian food (Teresa Giudice), or wigs (Kim Zolciak). A GTL salon seems like the logical next step for the aging reality star, who is milking this Jersey Shore thing for all that it’s worth, and who can blame him?
And just think of the luxury! A gym/tan/laundromat: sweaty machinery used by hundreds, dead body cells from hundreds, and clean clothes tossed in the same soapy water as hundreds! What can I say: Mike’s livin’ like a king.
