Fans of Jersey Shore and Snooki & Jwoww recognize Deena Cortese as the hilarious little “meatball” who is best friends with Snooki.

Reality TV Stars Talk Couples Therapy

Viewers know Cortese for her crazy partying, but you won’t be seeing that behavior from her on Couples Therapy. “You’re going to see a completely different side of me. I open up about a lot of stuff that I didn’t feel comfortable opening up on Jersey Shore, so it should be very interesting,” the reality TV star reveals. Buckner also shares his thoughts on being filmed for the VH1 show: “It was an awesome experience. There were a lot of ups and downs. I know it’s going to be a lot of fun to watch.”

When the celebrity couple aren’t on television, the pair enjoys going all out for their date nights. “We do a lot of little getaways, like spending a couple of nights in Atlantic City, getting dinner, and seeing a comedy show — the whole nine yards!” Cortese explains.

Deena Cortese on Fashion Dating Advice

Of course, with NYFW in full swing, we had to ask the New Jersey native about her favorite date night look. “Bebe fits my little body with curves so well. I usually wear a bodycon dress or something like that,” she says. Buckner picks his outfits a bit differently, taking fashion advice from his girlfriend: “Whatever Deena says looks good, that’s what I’m wearing. If it matches what she’s wearing, I’m in it,” he reveals.

Tune in to VH1 to see Deena and Chris on Couples Therapy on VH1 on Wednesdays at 9/8c. You can follow them both on Twitter: @DeenaNicoleMTV and @cbuckner_!
