The cast of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” is welcoming another Jersey girl to the ranks.

Unlike most of the cast, Deena Nicole Cortese, 23, is a tried and true Jersey girl, hailing from New Egypt, NJ. According to a report from the New York Post, Cortese will replace Angelina Pivarnick in the third season of the runaway hit.

Cortese describes herself as “f**king classy” and “addictive and expensiv3 lik3 cocaine.” A MySpace page for the former Brookdale Community College cheerleader shows her in various provocative poses, where she is seen scantily clad, often kissing her female friends and holding a bottle of liquor.

TMZ obtained a video of Cortese, who is a friend of castmember Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, recorded in 2008 that shows her using the N-word. In it, she addresses a group of unidentified males who have scorned her, saying “we’re gonna play you out, n****.”

Sources tell TMZ that Cortese is not an official permanent cast-member just yet, but will appear in a number of episodes during season three. Last weekend, TMZ cameras caught Cortese and Snooki chugging down beer from a funnel bong.

Last week, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie slammed the show for casting a “negative” light on his state.

“What it does is it takes a bunch of New Yorkers . . . drops them at the Jersey Shore and tries to make America feel like this is New Jersey," Christie said.
