New Jersey Celebrity Magnet Tom Murro recently received a surprise gift in his mailbox, from Toronto artist Celeste Gillis that was not just fabulous; it was "ab-ulous." Gillis mailed him the actual highly publicized portrait she did of Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino from MTV's "Jersey Shore."
Back in December, Gillis transformed the images of Snooki and The Situation into artwork. Snooki took the professional route and purchased her self-portrait from Gillis, but The Sitch posted Gillis's image on his Facebook page with no credit given to the artist; he did what he does best... committed the robbery.
When The Situation first saw his acrylic transformation, he commented to Gillis that the "painting is pretty cool...interested...are you giving it or trying to sell to me?" She offered him the piece for the cost of a few tanning sessions or just a mention of her Web site. He never contacted her again, but she saw her work posted on his Facebook page with the title, "The Man The Myth The Legend."
