New "Jersey Shore" Cast Member: Deena Nicole Cortese


It was announced yesterday that 23-year-old New Jersey native Deena Nicole Cortese will be the newest cast member on the network’s hit show, “Jersey Shore.” Cortese will appear with the original cast, comprised of Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Ronnie Magro, Paul “DJ Pauly D” Del Vecchio and Vinny Guadagnino. Cortese has already joined the fist-pumping pack in Seaside Heights, NJ to begin filming the third season. Let the absurdity begin.

Much like her longtime friend Nicole Polizzi, better known as Snookie, Deena Nicole Cortese is no stranger to “beating up the beat.” The newbie describes herself as, “class in a glass and party in a body,” later adding that she will “bring a lot of energy to the house.”  Because energy is just what that house needs? Their poor neighbors…

As always, parental discretion is strongly advised.
