‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’: It Doesn’t Look Like Deena Is Coming Back

Jersey Shore: Family Vacation will return with another season! Now, many fans are curious about which of the roommates will return for season 4. So far, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Vinny Guadagnino, Pauly DelVecchio, and Angelina Pivarnick have shared news of the show’s renewal. 

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley have expressed not wanting to return to the show, but many fans are wondering if Deena Cortese will follow in their footsteps. Will Cortese take part in Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 4?

Angelina’s actions hurt Deena

Throughout season 3 of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, each of the roommates demonstrated that Pivarnick was part of their family. When it came time to deliver their infamous bridesmaids’ speech, Pivarnick laughed it off, seemingly enjoying the roast and wishes from her roommates. 

Things quickly took a turn, resulting in Pivarnick storming out of her wedding. A confused Cortese told MTV cameras: “I feel like this happens with Angelina a lot — she blows things out of proportion. She was just laughing and telling us she loved us.” When Cortese attempted to apologize to Pivarnick for hurting her feelings, she replied: “That was distasteful.” The wedding seemingly ended in disarray. Farley, Polizzi, Cortese, and Pivarnick have all shared their sides of the story regarding what happened after the fact. However, what truly happened remains unclear. 

Deena has aspirations outside of ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ 

Like her fellow meatball, Cortese has taken on projects outside of filming for Jersey Shore. Recently, she launched her “Mommy-and-Me” clothing line, Christopher John. The line — named after her son —features clothing that allows mothers and fathers to coordinate with their sons. 

Additionally, “Snooki” and Cortese have been teasing the idea of doing their own “Meatball Show.” During an Instagram Live on June 20, Cortese announced: “Me and Nicole are kind of hoping that this ‘Meatball Show’ will take off.” Instead of solely doing Instagram Lives and calling them “The Meatball Show,” the duo wants to make it a reality. “We would love to do a real ‘Meatball Show’ and be able to hang out with all of you,” Polizzi added.

Will Deena be part of ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ Season 4?

Unlike Pivarnick and her male roommates, Cortese has yet to say anything regarding her return for season 4. 

During her Instagram Live on June 20, Cortese did not address whether or not she was done with the show. “I’m not saying anything right now because I’m not really sure of how I feel,” she said. “It depends on how everything is. I can’t go into a dramatic atmosphere. It was fun back in the day because it was just having a good time and drinking. I like it when we’re having fun. I’m not a fighter, I don’t like the drama, so it depends on where the show goes.” 

UPDATE: At this time, it’s unlikely Cortese will return to the reality series.

Cortese recently took to Twitter to discuss the alleged threats she, Farley, and Polizzi received after Pivarnick’s wedding. “I [couldn’t] care less if I ever see her again in my life,” Cortese said of Pivarnick, leading many fans to believe she won’t be back when filming for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 4 begins.
