The fifth season of Jersey Shore premieres on MTV tonight and we're on the edge of our seats with excitement!
Deena Nicole Cortese joined the tanned cast in the third season as a close friend of Snooki, and now it's safe to say we can't picture the show without her.
From the moment the "blast in the glass" came on the show, we knew we were in for some good TV. From her drunken antics with Snooks, to repeatedly hitting on Pauly D and flashing her cooka at the club, Deena sure has given us a host of LOL moments.
We got a chance to catch up with one half of the "Meatballs. Deena filled us in on how to defend yourself in a chick fight and what it was like transitioning from Italy back to the good ol' Jersey Shore house.
Check it all out in our exclusive video interview above!
