After his elimination from Dancing With the Stars last night, The Situation's emotional situation is a little out of whack. The Jersey Shore star's feelings (yes, he actually has them) are hurt, and he's "upset," his pro partner Karina Smirnoff says.
Sitch, who stormed off the set Monday after receiving harsh remarks from the judges for his tango, put on a good front as he was given the boot. But it hurts.
AWW: Who knew Sitch was such a softie?
"He put a lot on the line doing that dance, but it is what it is," said Karina, adding that she thought the judges would appreciate the tough lifts the pair did.
For his part, The Situation (a.k.a. Mike Sorrentino) thinks that the judges "were trying to make a statement ... kinda like the first day of class when you see the most popular kid in class and wanna make an example of them."
Whatever helps you sleep at night, Mike.Best effort or not, Smirnoff admits that Siturina's exit was "very predictable... the scores were quite low, and the remarks weren't that encouraging either."
"I had so much fun on this season. I think his time was cut a little short, I think he had a few weeks in him, but we're going to take it with a grain of salt."
Might we see the couple reunite ... on the Jersey Shore?
"I could be the drill sargeant that comes in and puts everyone in check," Smirnoff joked. "Or I can do GTD! I'll get everyone to do gym, tan and dance!"
At least she's in good spirits. Who are you rooting for now?
