Situation Sorrentino slams gay rumor

Situation Sorrentino slams gay rumor

Situation Sorrentino slams gay rumor The Situation : Stop saying I'm gay, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is a meticulously groomed, highly fashionable, in-shape male who has a huge following in the gay community (see him). But despite the assertions of other "Jersey Shore" cast members, Sorrentino insists that he's not gay (who's saying otherwise?). In fact, The Situation is reportedly furious at his cast mates for spreading the gay rumors, as he thinks it could hurt his brand-endorsement deals


Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino wants everyone to know that GTL stands for "gym, tan, laundry" -- and nothing else.

The "Jersey Shore" star has reportedly hit back at housemates Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley after they speculated about his sexuality and hinted he might be gay in an interview with HuffPost Gay Voices.

"Mike really ripped both Snooki and JWoww a new one," a show insider told the Chicago Sun-Times. Noting that Sorrentino is concerned such comments could hurt his brand endorsements, which are focused on straight male customers, the source added, "He's extremely upset."

In the interview, both JWoww and Snooki implied that despite his playboy reputation, Mike has questioned his own sexuality. "He brings it up," JWoww said. "He'll say, 'People think I'm gay and I don't know what they're talking about.'" Added Snooki: "He told me one time, '[All the talk is] making me wonder.'"

JWoww even compared Sorrentino to her gay best friend's husband, who was closeted for 27 years of his life. "So because of that I know...the signs," she said.

The Situation's publicist called Snooki and JWoww’s speculation “the most ridiculous statement I’ve ever heard" in response, the Sun-Times notes.

It's not the first time Sorrentino's sexuality has been questioned. Last year, former "Jersey Shore" star Angelina Pivarnick -- previously Sorrentino's love interest -- told Popeater, "I think Mike is gay. I think he's gay because of the way he talks and the way he abuses girls. He talks down to women...I honestly feel like he's in the closet right now; he doesn't want to come out.
The Situation had himself a situation -- someone was using his trademarked GTL phrase without permission -- so he had his lawyers make the copycat web site disappear.

The site in question was called MyGTLFuel.com -- which claims to "manufacture products to energize and enhance your lifestyle."

The Sitch and his brother/business partner, Marc Sorrentino, felt it came too close to their GTL trademarks -- so they had their lawyers draw up a cease and desist letter.

The letter worked and the site is down -- though a Facebook page still remains. The Sorrentino boys still want the bogus site to fork over any profits they made off the GTL trademark and are currently working towards a resolution.
