'The Situation' storms off 'Dancing with the Stars' following criticism


By Reality TV World staff, 10/12/2010 

Dancing with the Stars criticism is apparently not one of the situations Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino handles well.

Sorrentino has confirmed he stormed off Dancing with the Stars' ballroom set after judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli panned the dance routine he performed during Monday night's live show.

Sorrentino and partner Karina Smirnoff received only 28 out of 60 possible points (12 technical points, 16 performance points) from the judges for their Argentine tango -- a score that ended up placing them last on Dancing with the Stars' Week 4 leaderboard.

"I was upset. I actually stormed off upset because I tried so hard. I really did. I changed my haircut, I don't know," Sorrentino told Us Weekly after the magazine spotted him smoking a cigarette and "sulking" in the studio's parking lot as a friend attempted to console him.

"I don't know what their deal was. I really don't know."

While Inaba was more supportive, Tonioli and Goodman were both highly critical of Sorrentino's performance prior to revealing their scores on Monday night.

"That was a terrible mess... [there were] an incredible amount of mistakes... so you did as best as you could in a really, really, really terrible, terrible situation," Tonioli said.

"It was consistent -- it was bad throughout," Goodman added.

However Sorrentino told Us he didn't bother listening to the judges' comments.

"Once I landed all those lifts and the judges were trashing me? I'll be honest with you, it was in one ear and out the other.  In the back of my head, I knew those lifts were extremely hard. I tried my best, and if they didn't see it and wanted to be negative, so be it" he said. 

"I really did try my best and hopefully the viewers saw that."

Unlike Sorrentino, Smirnoff told Us she considered the judges' criticism a complement of sorts.

"Honestly, I think he showed quite a lot of improvement last week. I think we can take it as a compliment.  They wanted to see more, and we appreciate their faith in us, but sometimes, come on, throw us a bone!" she said. 

"[I hope it has the] reverse effect, where the judges are really mean and the fans really stand behind us, because we really want to make it through."
