Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Good Charlotte kicked off an exciting New Year’s weekend bash at Chateau Nightclub & Gardens at Paris Las Vegas last night. Reality star along with fashionista Nicole Richie, NBA legend Julius “Dr. J” Erving and singer Brandy also celebrated the end of the year at the nightclub.

Sorrentino is looking forward to getting some rest in 2012. “My New Year’s resolution is to take it easy and relax more,” said the “Jersey Shore” hunk.

That resolution would have to wait. Sorrentino was anything but relaxed as he enjoyed celebrating the end of 2011. The MTV star yelled “Happy New Year” to fans and even threw his jewelry into the crowd. It appeared Sorrentino may be heading into the New Year with a new love in his life, as well. Sorrentino arrived hand-in-hand with a stunning brunette and stayed close by her side throughout the evening. The Situation was joined by his mom, Linda, his sister, Melissa, and his two brothers Marc and Frank Jr. Sorrentino and his group partied late into the night, enjoying vodka cocktails and dancing in their elaborate VIP booth.

Good Charlotte performed with the backdrop of the Bellagio fountains and the Las Vegas Strip on the rooftop nightclub of Chateau Gardens. Brothers Joel and Benji Madden, as well as the rest of the band, gave fans an incredible once-in-a-lifetime performance under the Eiffel Tower of Paris Las Vegas as they sang “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,” “Dance Floor Anthem” and more.

Joel’s wife, Nicole Richie, looked on and cheered for her man throughout the performance.

Erving and Brandy were joined by family and friends in an oversized VIP booth, where the lively group enjoyed cocktails and dancing while enjoying the stunning view from Chateau Gardens.
