Rep: 'Situation' Strikes Secret 'Jersey Shore' Deal

7/20/2010 2:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It could be the first time "The Situation" has ever done anything quietly -- his manager says Sitch steathily struck a new deal late Monday night and thinks it will end the "Jersey Shore" strike.

According to the manager, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino "believes he and MTV have reach [sic] a great new arrangement." No mention of dollar amounts, but interestingly, the manager says the deal was sealed (though he never says it's been signed) with MTV, and not JS producers 495 Productions.

TMZ broke the story ... MTV offered The Sitch anywhere between $27,500 to $45,000 per episode over a period of time -- he was making $10k for season 2, so not bad.

But move over Moses -- Sitch's manager says, "Mike decided in order to get season 3 done he was going to have to lead the pack and wants to encourage the rest of his cast to follow his lead."

MTV had no comment about a new contract for "The Situation."  We're betting his castmates will have plenty to say about it.

Yeah, they got lucky that they were chosen to be represented as faux Italians in a negative light and they make a profit off of it... But the way they carry themselves around is absolutely maddening. Its as IF they're better than us 'little ppl'. They're reality stars and they act as if they won the Nobel. So yeah, I'm a bit irked that some dregs pretending to be something they're not on a 'reality' show are strutting their stuff as if they really have some sort of eternal cultural impact.

But hey, if you feel that they're more deserving in life than you, Nicole, then by all means let them WALK all over YOU and let them "Get that money" - or whatever dreg nonsense you wanna use. Imma work on proving my worth to humanity in a legit and straight way, like all the people in the world do.

5 years. Lets see if anyone is going to even bother remembering any of their real or fake names when they're on the crapper.
