Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino released his first book last month and it’s been a huge flop. Titled “Here the Situation: A Guide to Creeping on Chicks, Avoiding Grenades and Getting in Your GTL” the book has managed to sell just 4,000 copies in one month.
Publishers Weekly Jim Milliot told Life & Style that:
“For a high-profile author, 4,000 copies it pretty bad,” adding, “It’s definitely a disappointment to the publishing company which will probably lose money on the deal.”
Despite the huge fail of the book, Sorrentino is still scheduled to write one more book under the Gotham publishing name.

Here’s how Mike describes his first foray into literature:
A Guide to Creeping on Chicks, Avoiding Grenades, and Getting in Your GTL on the Jersey Shore “as my guide to the ‘Jersey Shore,’ battle plans for the club, a primer on grenades and wingmen, and tips for ridding yourself of all levels of clinger.”

The men of Jersey Shore each carry their own signature style, heck Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has even turned that style into a fashion business, but when GQ Magazine came calling they convinced the boys to give up their styles for a day with a front cover and photo spread makeover.
The issue featured Pauly with a new hairstyle and offers some “words of advice” from the guys…barf. Here’s some of that “advice.”
Vinny: “I used to be a trainer, and 90 percent of the people who use trainers are women and old people. But it can be good—I used to train other trainers.”
DJ Pauly D: “It was my birthday this weekend, and these girls put cake on my body and ate it off. One girl said, “You have the nicest chest I ever ate cake off.” I got pictures to prove it. I’ll send ‘em to you.”
Here’s the GQ makeover spread:

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino may be a household name among reality TV fans and sure he’s one of the highest paid reality TV stars of all time, with earnings expected to top $5 million by the end of 2010, but apparently his “The Situation” nickname mixed with his fame wasn’t enough for him to be granted a trademark on his popular name.
The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) rejected Mike’s request for “The Situation” name. According to TheSmokingGun.com Sorrentino hoped to trademark the name and then release a T-Shirt line.
According to USPTO, a trademark that was too similar to his own was issued to a Memphis-based clothing and shoe line in 2009.

What does being an annoying Guido get you for your troubles? If your “The Situation” from MTV’s hit show Jersey Shore it gets you a Bentley.
Okay, so it gets you a used 2008 Bentley coupe, not a newer model, but the $100,000 price tag is still an impressive amount of money to drop on a vehicle when you’re only making $40,000 an episode on a show that’s sure to lose it’s appeal soon enough.

ABC’s hit dancing reality series Dancing With The Stars is being invaded by the Jersey Shore, specifically by Mike Sorrentino, better known as The Situation on the networks hit TV series about Guido’s, drinking and abs.
According to OK! Magazine Sorrentino will appear on the 11th season of DWTS, where he’ll perform such dances as the foxtrot and hip hop numbers. Perhaps this foray into hip hop will go better than the release of his lousy rap single.

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of Jersey Shore fame will be releasing a workout DVD this winter.
Sorrentino has already announced a clothing line, released a rap single (it’s awful in-case your curious) and is making big bucks for being a talentless twit.
The DVD as should be expected focuses on turning your abs into a 6 or even an 8 pack, hopefully it involves Sorrentino talking as little as possible.

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is already making $10,000 an episode to act like a total moron on MTV’s hit TV show Jersey Shore and now we’ve learned that his contract for further seasons could reach much higher.
According to TMZ, the network has offered “The Situation” a one-time bonus ranging from $60,000 to $180,000 based on ratings for Season 2 in Miami. They have also proposed paying Sorrentino somewhere between $27,500 – $45,000 per episode for Season 4.
Under MTV’s new plans, season two would be broken up into seasons 2 and 3 (in which Sorrentino is already making $10k per episode), which means the next episodes to be shot for season 4 would pay Mike the larger sum. Read the rest of this entry »

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of Jersey Shore fame doesn’t just want to stick to his day job of annoying America while constantly flashing his abs, he wants to release a full rap album, probably about going to the gym, tanning, and how hard it is to be a juiced up guido making $10k an episode for basically doing nothing.
Sorrentino spoke with PopEater and said that while he’s released one song about his abs and life, he’s currently in the studio to work on a few remixes which will be featured on an upcoming full album:
“I’m lyrically gifted, so to speak, and definitely not too bad on the mic at all.”

Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino isn’t happy just being an annoying reality star who no one will remember in a few years, now he wants to assault our better tastes with a clothing line no one will be wearing in a few years. The line is set to hit retailers this summer.
Shockingly he actually found a sponsor for his work the New York based “couture” house Dilligaf. The line is set to debut right before the second season of Jersey Shore season 2.
So far none of The Situations sketches for the line have been spotted, hopefully there as good as his rapping. Please recognize the sarcasm in that last statement.
