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.

2011 brought along with it a host of new fashion trends, from long-sleeved gowns to daytime sequins to the ever-unfortunate mullet dress. The biggest trend of all, however, seems to have been stars looking like a volcanically hot mess. Yes, like a single strand of pearls or a little black dress, celebrities sashaying down the red carpet in cringe-inducing couture never gets old. After all, these are people who all have stylists. Who they pay real money. To make them look good. We know.
Without further ado, check out our Worst-Dressed Stars of 2011 gallery then vote on your favorite misguided celebs. Will it be Paz de la Huerta or Nicki Minaj? Katy Perry or Courtney Stodden? Lady Gaga or Snooki? As long as famous people continue to have little to no taste, we’ll all be winners here.
Where do we even begin? To say that last night’s makeout sesh between Snooki and Deena on Jersey Shore was a trainwreck is a pretty apt description, especially considering that episode eventually ended with Snooki crashing into an Italian cop car. America’s favorite meatballs (and Italy’s least favorite meatballs) are at it again, but this time, it’s with each other. Literally. Check out our gallery to witness Deena and Nicole go at it at the club, the car, the house, and their room, with the grand finale being their reactions when their roommates clued them in about the events of the night before. As Sammi Sweetheart would say, “Not a good look.”
Well, it looks like Snooki is out of custody following her collision with a police car in Florence yesterday, though she does look a little worse for wear. The Jersey Shore star was wearing a neck brace while walking around town with Deena earlier today, though it should be noted there are also photos of her without the brace as well in the gallery below. Was she suffering or just showing off? We’re sure to find out once this oh-so-promising third season finally makes it to air.
It takes talent to be able to get into trouble everywhere you go. No one exemplifies this statement more than our darling Snooki, who is currently in custody in Florence, Italy. She crashed into a car while driving and — because this is Snooki and life does this to her — the other vehicle just happened to be a cop car!
Fortunately for Snookums, she hadn’t been drinking. A source reported that “zero alcohol was involved,” which is a lucky break, but she’s still in trouble considering the city of Florence and the Jersey Shore cast don’t exactly get along. This occurred yesterday, and TMZ reports that no one’s been injured and this isn’t a formal arrest. Apparently Deena Nicole (of bridge hopping fame) was in the passenger seat at the time. Free Snooki, Italy! FREE SNOOKI! Priceless.

The camera makes us do strange things. Alcohol makes us do strange things. Combine the two, and you have the Jersey Shore. The photo on the left is of Sammi Sweetheart Giancola and Deena Nicole Cortese doing their thing in Florence, Italy where the show is being taped. Naturally, footage of them walking around shopping ain’t going to get ratings right? So Deena Nicole — as evidenced by the photo on the right — decided to climb off the side of a huge bridge. Because the laws of gravity do not apply to the Jersey Shore guys. What goes up, can’t go splat!
Long story short, Deena and the Florentine bridge were not amici with each other. Big bridge, little Deena. She couldn’t get back up and, after dangling dangerously off the side, had to be pulled up by security and Sammi. Apparently, shots of them drinking aren’t going to be permitted while they’re shooting in the country. So they obviously needed something stupid enough to replace Snooki and gang slurring through an episode. This is it. Brilliant television, guys, really.

On the right is Deena Nicole Cortese from the Jersey Shore—also known as Snooki 2.0. On the left is an unidentified woman — a fan, clearly — who decided to lick Deena’s arm. Is this a new trend that we’re unaware of? If you like someone, lick them? We’re assuming that you have to like the person right, otherwise the whole licking thing is moot. Needless to say, we’ve decided not to get on board with this. Not that there’s a bunch of people we wouldn’t like to lick (and it’s a large bunch), but we’re going to try our level best never to actually go ahead with it.
One must also raise a hygiene point with this photograph. It was taken at Sammi “Sweetheart“s 24th birthday (Happy Birthday, Sammi!) at the Chateau nightclub in Las Vegas. There’s got to have been sweat, lady! WHY would you do that! Meh… it’s Vegas. Grosser things have happened.

When Jersey Shore’s Sammi said her new cast member Deena Cortese was “exactly like Snooki,” she was not joking around. In fact, the clips we’ve seen so far made us sort of worried that Deena, Snooki’s friend IRL, might be so Snickerfied that our girl Snooki’s original spark could be lost under twice the amount of bronzer. As the Jersey Shore season premiere nears, we couldn’t help but note that the Jersey stars similarities include:
- Approximately Cabbage Patch Doll-height in inches
- Color of tan best described as “Well-Used Basketball”
- Deena is as smush-crazy as Snooki, if not more so. As Deena explained to Life & Style, “The most guys I’ve hooked up with in one night is probably three,” the use of the word “probably” implying to us that she might not exactly know what her highest number is. “People consider me a man-eater. I don’t really like dating, though. Dates can be so awkward!”
- Deena has already showed “her goods” to The Situation, as she explained to VH1.com this morning, further following in Snooki’s footsteps. Well, and the footsteps of every girl on the Eastern Seaboard.
