Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star Deena Cortese looked stunning in a brand-new makeup-free selfie.
The reality television star, who gave birth to her second son Cameron Theo in early May, took the image as a way to encourage body positivity in her followers.
Deena wore her long, reddish-brown hair in waves which cascaded around her face. Her skin appeared flawless as she looked directly at the camera.
The reality star sported a strapless black top in the pic, where she was seated inside her home on a gray sofa.
A pony-tail holder was wrapped around her right wrist.
The 34-year-old encouraged her followers to “love your flaws” and “own your own quirks” in the caption.
Deena’s Jersey Shore castmates react
Deena’s Jersey Shore castmates reacted to the stunning selfie, and added their own positive remarks.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino said, “Gorgeous sis.”
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi penned “YAS queen.”
Nicole, Mike, and Deena join Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio, Vinny Guadagnino, Angelina Pivarnick, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and Jenni “JWoww” Farley for this season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation where the group headed to the Poconos in Pennsylvania for some wintertime fun.
The season taped earlier this year at the Woodloch Resort. The cast was able to bring their significant others and children for this vacation. Deena invited her husband Christopher Bucker and their son CJ. Jenni brought fiancé Zach Carpinello and her kids Grayson and Meilani. Mike’s wife Lauren attended as did Pauly’s girlfriend Nikki Hall and Angelina’s husband Chris.
The cast was introduced to Ronnie’s girlfriend Saffire Matos during this season of fun.
This will be the first time Nicole has spent a lengthy period of filming with her castmates since abruptly leaving the series in late 2019. Nicole’s return to Jersey Shore has added the punch in the arm needed to bring back the fun after two seasons of darker storylines.
