Deena Cortese & Jenni Farley Spoke About the Cast’s Children in June 2021
During a June 2021 interview with CBS New York, alongside Farley, Deena Cortese shared why she appreciates “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.” She explained that she enjoys the fact that she “can include [her] family in it.” She also noted that she liked that fans can see the “Jersey Shore” cast mature.
“We were crazy, young 20-year-olds getting drunk and then you watch us progress into parents and you know, adults and we’re still having fun. We still like our wine. And we still like to enjoy each other’s company but I just like the fact that everybody, including our fans were able to kind of follow our journey and I think that’s what makes our show a little bit different than other reality shows,” said Cortese.
Farley made similar comments and revealed that she and Polizzi believed that their careers as reality television stars would be over once they became mothers.
“Then they brought the show back and to be able to just see now — Cameron’s being born and CJ’s being born. You’ll get to see Lauren and Mike’s baby being born, like there’s a whole new chapter and it’s just so incredible because these are memories that we are going to have forever. We are a family,” said the 35-year-old.
Cortese then noted that the cast’s children enjoy spending time together.
“Our kids love each other. It’s like the cutest thing ever. And I hope that they show that on the show. Because we did do some filming with the kids. And you just see the love. They just love each other. They get so excited to see each other. It’s just amazing,” said the 34-year-old.
