He sulked over his elimination from Dancing With the Stars and lashed out at a girl who rejected him on last week's Jersey Shore, but Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s former dance partner, Karina Smirnoff, had only positive things to say about the reality star to In Touch. “I actually got to meet the real ‘Sitch’ — the sweet, normal Mike. I expected something different,” Karina, who rehearsed for weeks with the MTV standout star to prepare for the ABC dancing competition series, said at the grand opening of Esquire House in LA on October 15. Though initially she was nervous to work with the infamous womanizer, Karina admits she had a great time in their short run as a pair. “It ended up being one of the most enjoyable seasons. We had so much fun,” she added. “He's got a great sense of humor and great timing. We never had a dull moment in rehearsal!” After receiving low scores and a scathing review for his Argentine tango from the judges, The Situation said goodbye to DWTS in the show’s fourth week.
