The cast of Jersey Shore Family Vacation has been in Las Vegas for the past few days, filming the show’s second season. However, one member of the ‘Shore’ gang– Deena Cortese— has been missing from the photos and videos that have leaked of the cast filming in Vegas.
In a message posted to her Instagram account (that has since been deleted), Deena confirmed that she is not going to be filming the show’s second season in Vegas, due to what she called “personal stuff.”
‘Jersey Shore’ fans were speculating that Deena bailed on filming because she is pregnant, but Deena put that rumor to rest.
“I just want to make it clear that it’s not bc I’m pregnant that I am not in Vegas,” Deena wrote. “I am NOT pregnant. I am not in Vegas bc I have some personal stuff going on at home…that I need to attend to…which prevented my schedule and production schedule to match up accordingly. Now let’s put the rumors to rest. Thank you.”
Before she deleted the post, Deena responded in the comment section to a fan asking if the “personal stuff” Deena was attending to had to do with her getting a divorce from her husband, Chris Buckner.
“No not at all…me and [Chris] have an amazing marriage,” Deena wrote.
As The Ashley previously reported, the ‘Jersey Shore’ cast has been filming and stirring up trouble in Vegas since Wednesday. (Cast member Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has already managed to get into at least two altercations since he’s been in The LV.) While the majority of ‘Family Vacation’ Season 2 will be filmed in Vegas, a portion of the season will be filmed in New Jersey.
It is unknown if Deena, who lives in New Jersey, will participate in that part of filming.
Deena and Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola are the only main cast members who are not filming in Vegas for Season 2. Photos and videos of the rest of the cast– Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Ronnie, Vinny Guadagnino, Pauly D and Jenni “JWoww” Farley— have begun to surface online.
Check out some footage of the cast filming Season 2 in Vegas earlier this week:
