It's no secret that The Situation is trying to convert his fame from flash in the pan to slow burn with Dancing With the Stars, but according to an US Weekly source, The Situation recently tried to broker a deal for $500,000. And when the Jersey boy was told that he was no Kim Kardashian, his manager said, "The Situation is much larger than Kim Kardashian," reports Us Weekly. It's enough to make us wish for a temporary return of Celebrity Death Match: The Situation's over-exposed abs vs. Kim Kardashian’s infamous butt.

Mike agrees with his manager, boasting to US, "Right now, my genre is reality. And I think I'm at the top of my class." Right now, you say? Just biding your time until you can do some Shakespeare in the Park and claim to be bigger than Kenneth Branagh?

The Situation's cloud of smug is affecting his relationships with the other cast mates of the Jersey Shore. He arrived in L.A. a day ahead of the rest of the crew, and he chose his DWTS suite over hanging out with them. He was also nowhere to be seen on the Pauly D-Vinny-Ronnie Beverly Center shopping trip. Will MVP be replaced with VPR next season? "You never know with Mike," Snooki tells US. "One time he's a jerkoff and another time he's nice... Mike thinks he's the s***." Sounds like we have a "S***uation" on our hands.
