Deena Nicole Cortese Shows Off Slim, New Bikini Bod

She may have been known as a “meatball” on the MTV reality series “Jersey Shore,” but now it looks like Deena Nicole Cortese may be getting a new nickname.

On Tuesday (June 25), the 26-year-old starlet took to her Twitter page to show off her brand new bikini body by posting a few selfies for her one million-plus followers.

In the first snapshot, Deena smiles for the camera while sitting poolside, captioning the pic, “Cheese ! Summer lovin.” Later, Cortese showed off her hard work by posting a full body pic of herself in a yellow string bikini, writing, “Just got home from the beach now laying near chris” pool love you summer.”

Last October, the brunette reality star dished to InTouch magazine that she had lost 15 pounds and went from a size 8 to a size 4, explaining, “Ive always struggled with my body image,” adding, “My weight was getting out of control, and I knew it was time to do something about it.”
