Does the name Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino ring a bell to you? If not, here’s what you need to know: The reality TV star made his debut on the show Jersey Shore and has been an pop culture icon ever since. He was such a hit with fans that his family was offered a spin-off show on TVGN: The Sorrentinos. At OK! Magazine’s New York Fashion Week celebration, CupidsPulse.com interviewed his brother Frank and his mother Linda for some inside scoop on fashion and dating advice.

Reality TV Stars Share Fashion Tips

Going on a first date can be scary. With that thought in mind, Linda reveals her best fashion advice. “It depends on where you are going. If you are going to a fancy restaurant, you have to look the part, maybe wearing a nice dress,” the family matriarch explains in our exclusive celebrity interview. “But if you are going some place casual for a drink, you might want to wear nice heels, jeans, and a blazer.”

Of course, Frank’s answer to what women should wear was a bit different from his mom’s: “Short and accessible,” he says with a laugh.

When it comes to dating someone with bad style, Linda recommends kindly suggesting alternative outfits. “There are staples that everyone should have, like a white shirt and dark jeans. Steer your man to that direction,” the reality TV star shares.

Linda Sorrentino’s Best Dating Advice

As fans of the show have seen, Linda’s relationship and love life has been filled with ups and downs, including a blind date and a bad experience with a matchmaker. “It wasn’t a great date, but that’s the chance you take,” she says of the latter experience. “I’m very open to that…because you just don’t know when the right guy will come along.” The best date, Linda believes, “is when you are introduced by someone. They already know that person; there is already a background; and they aren’t a stranger. So that’s what I am hoping for.”
