We have a situation. Jersey Shore alum and former meatball Deena Nicole Cortese sparked plastic surgery rumors on Instagram thanks to one very pouty selfie. However, Deena was not shy about admitting to getting a little help when it comes to her plumper lips.
The 30-year-old looked noticeably different in her latest post — and fans were quick to accuse the reality star of lip injections. “What did you do to your lips? You look like Snooki and JWoww now. Tell me Sammi didn’t do it too,” one commenter wrote before another added, “The plastic surgery is real!” Deena quickly responded to her haters and confirmed that she had in fact gotten lip injections. “I know but I love them I won’t go any bigger… I’m very happy with them now tho… isn’t that’s what matters? Plus they, unfortunately, are going to go down they are swollen,” she wrote. Watch the video below to see her new pout!
While she admitted to doing her lips, she did deny going under the knife for a nose job. “I didn’t get a nose job tho lol,” she responded after someone commented, “I hate her nose job.”
As fans noted, Deena did join her co-stars Snooki and JWoww — who have also admitted to getting lip injections. “First session of lip plumps and it’s just fabulous,” Snooki wrote on her blog in 2015. “I’ve always hated my thin lips and never thought I had the balls to get needles in my lip to perfect them but I did! Trust me girls, I was terrified to get my first ‘procedure’ ever done, but it wasn’t terrible at all! And I hate needles! I love my ‘natural beauty,’ but being able to enhance my lips to make me feel better about myself is life.”
Deena looks better than ever — and she recently reunited with her the MTV cast to celebrate her engagement to Chris Buckner. “My roomies future hubby and best friend surprised me tonight,” she captioned the group pic. “Celebrating our engagement and having a roomie reunion tonight… love you all so much.”
