Had it not been for her friend Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, South Jersey’s Deena Nicole Cortese might have become a dental assistant. Instead, the 23-year-old  is now the newest cast mate on MTV’s hit series "Jersey Shore," joining Snooki and the rest of the gang for the show's third season, which will air Thursday.

And already it appears she fits right in. Cortese recently told the New York Post about getting naked in front of Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino on Thursday's episode.

"I was drunk and trying to show off my bathing suit," Cortese said. "I was so drunk I didn't realize that I took off my bottoms with my skirt. I was mortified."

Cortese replaces much-maligned former roommate Angelina Pivarnick, who was on the first two seasons of  "Jersey Shore." The self-described “party in a body” was selected by Snooki to be part of the cast’s latest adventures in Seaside Heights.

"Snooks and I are two peas in a pod when it comes to partying," Cortese said in the Post interview.

The new member also said that her parents are accustomed to her behavior and that they are supportive of her.

"In high school, I started peaking into the person I am now," Corse said to the newspaper. "Me and my two girlfriends, we started dating outside our school, wearing the pouf and coming into our own. We were known as little divas in high school."

The new season of "Jersey Shore" will air Thursday at 10 p.m. on MTV.
