With Snooki away to promote her new book, the focus was put on incoming cast member Deena Cortese, who said she was brought on as Snooki's "turn-to girl," a second banana that could keep up with the reality star's long nights of partying.
"Snooks needed a party girl," Cortese, 23, said.
"We needed someone upbeat in the house," J-WOWW said in a subtle dig at the cast member Cortese replaced, lighting rod Angelina Pivarnick. "Someone with a positive attitude."
Cortese told a funny story about how she accidentally exposed her private parts to The Situation upon arriving at the house. Admitting she'd went on a drinking binge "out of nerves" before she met the rest of the cast, she said she "wanted to show off my bathing suit with my cowboy hat.
"So, I went to take down my dress show off my bathing suit -- to and I guess I was so numb from being drunk -- I didn't even realize my bottoms came down with it -- I was mortified!"
"It happens all the time," The Situation nonchalantly chimed in.
The new season of Jersey Shore begins on MTV Thursday at 10/9c.
