The Situation Thinks He’s “Larger Than Kim Kardashian”


Watch your back, Kim!

The new Us Weekly reports that Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino recently tried to cut a deal with a source — demanding half a million dollars up front. The broker declined, explaining that he wouldn't give that much money to reality star Kim Kardashian.

"His manager's words were: 'The Situation is much larger than Kim Kardashian,'" the source recounts to Us. "We all laughed."

With a Dancing with the Stars gig and numerous products in the pipeline, the ab-fabbed Sorrentino, 28, has "gone Hollywood," the insider says. "He essentially believes he's the biggest star of the show."

And that 'tude could alienate Sorrentino from his seven housemates, multiple sources say. He snubbed his crew in L.A. during the MTV VMAs weekend — hanging instead in his luxe condo comped by DWTS. "Right now, my genre is reality. And I think I'm at the top of my class," Sorrentino told Us recently.

"You never know with Mike," Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi told Us of her housemate. "One time he's a jerkoff and another time he's nice…Mike thinks he's the s***."

To read much more about growing tensions with the Jersey Shore gang — how Snooki thinks Mike "will be terrible" on DWTS, how Angelina "wasn't invited" to the VMAs, a potential spinoff for Snooki and J-Woww and more — pick up the new Us Weekly, on stands today.
