Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is trying to make some extra cash—and a lot of it—while in Los Angeles doing Dancing With the Stars.
The Jersey Shore star is now asking $100,000 to appear at Hollywood parties, according to an event organizer who turned him down for a recent gig.
And it wasn't just because the party planners didn't want to foot his high price...
"We didn't feel he was a good fit for our brand," one insider tells me. "Plus, that was just too much money!"
During the first season of Jersey Shore, it only cost $7,500 to have The Situation appear at your party.
When reached for comment, Mike's manager told me he can't "confirm or deny" the supposed fee request.
And even though the Situation didn't get $100k for this gig, it probably won't hurt his bottom line. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he's already fist-pumping his way to earn a cool $5 million this year
