The reality TV personality was taken to task by fellow cast members Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi and Jenni 'JWoww' Farley about his attitude as they tried to get him to admit to deliberately stirring up trouble between the cast members.
However, Sorrentino stood up and walked off set as the two girls continued to criticise him, saying: "This is bulls**t. This is ridiculous. I've been cool as hell the whole time, you know what I mean? That's ridiculous."
He was followed off set by JWoww as Polizzi said: "Did he not say, 'I will take on everybody in this house because I'm the villain'?"
Outside, Sorrentino complained: "Why do I have to apologise for s**t two or three years ago?"
Sorrentino recently confirmed that he has received treatment for what he described as a "prescription drug problem", although it has also been reported that he went through an alcohol detox during a stay at Cirque Lodge in Utah.
Jersey Shore has recently been renewed for a sixth season on MTV, with the broadcaster saying that it expects Sorrentino will return to the show.
