"Jersey Shore" star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has decided he likes the other coast a lot better.
The reality TV star told George Lopez he plans to move out to L.A., and put the garden State in his rear view mirror.
"I love it out here, I'm definitely gonna move out to here," the Manalapan, N.J. native told the TBS talk show host.
The ab-flashing layabout has gotten a taste of the limelight, with his role on the MTV show and a spot on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," and now believes he belongs with the Hollywood hoi polloi, according to pals.
"Mike has wanted to get out of Jersey for years," a friend of the reality star told Popeater. "He hates it. He has always seen his future in New York or Los Angeles and now that he is rich and famous I doubt he will ever want to return to Jersey again."
Still, he knows that theshow that made him famous -at least for the time being - is his bread and butter.
"Mike will go back and tape shows for MTV but the second the camera is off he's on the first plane out back to LA," a TV told Popeater. "He's gone all Hollywood now. He thinks he's better than everyone and has gotten a huge head. He wants to be hanging out with Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise now not the folks at the Jersey Shore."
