M ike “The Situation” Sorrentino is furious with his “Jersey Shore” castmates Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and J enni “JWoww” Farley for giving interviews to the Huffington Post and Reality Weekly hinting that he may be gay.

“Mike really ripped both Snooki and JWoww a new one,” a show insider told me Wednesday.

“He’s extremely upset,” added the source, saying Sorrentino is concerned those comments could hurt his brand marketing efforts, which are very much focused on straight male customers.

The reality TV star’s publicist issued a statement denying the gay gab, calling Snooki and JWoww’s speculation “the most ridiculous statement I’ve ever heard.”

The “Jersey Shore” staffer acknowledged the rumors about “The Situation’s” sexual orientation have been around since the show’s first season, “but Mike thought he finally had put a kibosh on that.”
