I don’t know about you, but I always like to check in on my favorite former “Jersey Shore” stars. Otherwise I kind of start to worry about them, you know? Take Deena Cortese, for example — if I didn’t throw her name into my Google search bar once in a while, I’d never know what she was up to. Lo, here she is at InTouch Weekly‘s VMA after party, sporting allllllll of the makeup and what appears to be yet another brand new face. Deena, it seems, cruelly left approximately no makeup for her friend Jenni Farley to wear to the event, because JWoww is looking fresh-faced as hell! I’m not even being sarcastic like I usually am; JWoww looks great. I’m even willing to overlook her stupid glittery Princess of Party City dress, because this is really a step in the right direction. Take note, little meatball, as you embark on your new singing career.
When “Jersey Shore”‘s Deena Cortese was arrested for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness this past weekend, we discovered she was guilty of another offense: Crazy tan lines. How did she get that design on her butt? Also, why was she wearing slippers in public? And cuddling with a giant stuffed animal? I guess we’ll have to wait until next season to find out how the meatball ended up in such hot sauce. I’m already suspecting that she is feeling the pressure to fill Snooki’s shoes now that she’s pregnant. Meaning … SOBER. Click through to see more of the weirdest celebrity tan lines we’ve ever seen.

It seems that, while in between seasons of “Jersey Shore,” Deena Cortese got some work done. Hey, Snooki can’t get all the attention. I’m not one of those professional plastic surgery experts that gives their opinion on non-patients to the gossip rags, but it looks like she got her nose done, and maybe everything else too. I think she kind of looks like Sammi Sweetheart meets Nicole Scherzinger. I just hope her adorable meatball personality remained intact. [via Celebitchy]
I knew something good had to come out of the fact that there are two high-profile reality shows about the species of people that exist in the state of New Jersey. Love! Or at least a dance-floor hookup! Apparently, Deena Cortese, the new girl on “Jersey Shore,” got together with Chris Manzo, son of Caroline Manzo from “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” at a club last weekend. “Deena was basically humping Chris in front of everyone,” a source told Radar. Maybe Chris will recruit Deena as the co-owner of his car-wash strip club and they’ll live happily ever after? [Radar]
This has inspired us to play matchmaker and set up the stars of other reality TV shows. Keep reading »
“[Snooki] basically needed a partner-in-crime in the house, and me and her are exactly alike … It kind of scares me … The difference between me and Nicole is she’s looking for love and I just don’t give a f*** what guys think. 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 … We definitely get equal amount of attention. We’re like two little meatballs running around the club.”
—Deena Cortese was officially announced on Friday as the new cast member on “Jersey Shore.” She dishes on her bestie, Snooki, whom she’s known for two years. [People] Keep reading »
