The newest member of MTV’s "Jersey Shore" is 5 feet tall and calls herself one of "two peas in a pod" with Snooki when it comes to partying, reports the New York Post.
Her name is Deena Nicole Cortese, 23, and she says, "I have fans and the show hasn’t even started," pointing to her more than 21,000 Twitter followers. Cortese had planned to be a dental assistant, but instead is adjusting to instant fame, the story notes. "It really hit me when I was at the mall looking completely disgusting and every store I went into people stopped and asked for a picture," she said. The third season of the show begins on Thursday.
