August 10, 2010 12:00 PM by Nancy Floyd


When season three of Jersey Shore returns to MTV, hated cast member Angelina Pivarnick will be replaced by Snooki’s real-life BFF, Deena Cortese. The new girl, who will be seen partying it up with the Jersey Shore cast in season three, had no problems fitting in at the house. Keep reading for more details on what Deena Cortese likes to do for fun, how she and Snooki know each other, and what she thinks of the guys…

Deena Cortese might be new to MTV‘s Jersey Shore, but she has the loyalty of at least one cast member: longtime BFF, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. According to Deena Cortese, it was Snooki’s idea for her to join the cast in the upcoming third season. Deena says, “[Snooki] basically needed a partner-in-crime in the house, and me and her are exactly alike … It kind of scares me. She was like, ‘Deena, get your ‘a’ down here to Seaside. We’re going to party.’”

The two ladies met over two years ago through a mutual friend and have stayed close ever since. Although Deena Cortese says they’re “two peas in a pod” and “two little meatballs,” the girls do have some distinct differences. “The difference between me and Nicole is she’s looking for love and I just don’t give a f— what guys think,” Deena Cortese says. “Basically I’m the one just going out there, trying to have a good time. We’re all having a good time, but I’m just there for a freakin’ blast.”

Deena Cortese is thrilled to be working on the third season of Jersey Shore, especially since she gets to work with the guys. “All the guys are good-looking on the show,” she says. “I think Pauly D is adorable. Mike, his personality just makes him cute because he’s awesome. And Vinny‘s Vinny. He’s a cutie. All the guys are cute. And Ronnie‘s just — Ronnie’s sexy.”

Deena Cortese says a typical night out for her and Snooki is “a lot of shots, dancing on bars, meeting boys and being loud and obnoxious.” It sounds like she’ll have no problem fitting in with the cast of Jersey Shore!  ”I get along with everybody in the cast,” she says. “I went in there with an open mind and it was good.”
