April 11 (UPI) -- Vinny Guadagnino and Paul "Pauly D" DelVeccio say Jersey Shore co-star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has made a new friend in prison.
The television personalities said on Wednesday's episode of The Jenny McCarthy Show Sorrentino is happy and spending time with Fyre Festival co-founder Billy McFarland as he serves his prison sentence.
"We talk to him every day," Vinny told host Jenny McCarthy.
"[He's doing] so good," Pauly D added.
Vinny and Pauly D marveled at The Situation's positive outlook.
"He sends me positive vibes. He gets me through my day," Vinny said.
"He's in good spirits because he sees Lauren once a week, his wife, and he has so much to come home to," Pauly D explained. "He's coming home to a job -- he'll be filming -- so he just wants to get it over with and do his time. He's happy."
Vinny and Pauly D said The Situation befriended McFarland and one of the hackers who leaked nude photos of actress Jennifer Lawrence and other stars in 2014.
"They played Scrabble together," Pauly D said.
"Imagine what he's learning in there from all these guys," Vinny added.
The Situation came to fame on the MTV series Jersey Shore. He returned with Vinny, Pauly D and several other co-stars in Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, which was renewed for a third season in December.
