Based on how much Deena Cortese cries during your average season of Jersey Shore, how much do you think she cried when she found out about Snooki’s pregnancy from the news rather than from her meatball sister herself? A million tears? That seems like a solid, conservative estimate. “I actually just found out when everybody else did. That’s when she decided to tell everyone,” Deena explained on Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS-FM radio show this morning. “I think she was waiting because it’s bad luck.” Her costar Vinny Guadagnino seemed similarly stunned by the news, as he told HuffPo today, “It was definitely a shock, but you have to adapt to whatever life throws at you.” We’re assuming at least Snooki’s boyfriend Jionni knew before the Interweb did…right?
Despite their shock and awe at Snooki’s recent life decisions, her cast members think she’s going to be an excellent parent, boozing and Shore Showers not withstanding. “I think Nicole is going to be a great mom,” gushed Deena. “She’s a very genuine person and her heart’s always in the right place. She always puts people before her.” Said Vinny, “We all get into our hardships with each other and petty arguments but this is real life. She is pregnant and we are there for each other … I think it is a cool thing.” Aw, you guys are the best! As far as we’re concerned, the producers should just make room for a crib next to the duck phone next season.
