'Jersey Shore': The Situation Quits The Show, Sort Of, Just for a Minute

Reasonable, careful, dedicated and humble aren't words that would ever have accurately described Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, or the rest of the Jersey Shore cast for that matter. But lately the news out of filming on the show's fifth season seems even less those-things than usual, as the macaroni rascals keep threatening to quit. First Vinny, and now Mike. From The Superficial (how appropriately named for this non-news!):

"According to several photo agencies, these are apparently shots of The Situation storming off the set of Jersey Shore Wednesday afternoon and telling photographers, "It's over," and "Say goodbye to the bad guy.""

Of course, one of TMZ's uber-friendly camera men were right there to walk backwards in front of him as Mike walked out with his gaggle of succubi, one of whom, in response to the photog's question of whether Mike was leaving the show, declared "Sitch MAKES the show!"

Apparently that's groupie for "Just for a minute." More investigative reporting from TMZ reveals:

"Sources tell TMZ ... The Situation has been antsy lately ... telling producers he doesn't need the show.

We're told he actually WALKED OUT of the house alone yesterday after expressing his frustration with the show ... but he's back in the house.

For now."

Maybe these walk-outs are a sign that MTV has forced Jersey Shore to stay alive past its lifespan. Or maybe they're a sign that the stars and/or the network are going to extreme measures to try to drum up any sort of publicity because the show is past its lifespan. Or maybe Mike just has some really good energy drink infomercial offers on the table. Hollywood! Sometimes the glamor of it all just overwhelms me.
