Get ready, Italy: Deena Cortese, the self-proclaimed "blast in a glass" from "Jersey Shore," is heading your way!
"I'm very excited about going to Italy," Cortese tells TooFab of MTV's plans to shoot the next season overseas. "I can't wait to go there. Everyone always talks so well about it. I can't wait to see what it's all about."
And of course, that includes Italian men: "I'm excited to see the scenery, the culture. And Italian men should be interesting--a lot different than Jersey!"
But at the top of Cortese's to-do list before she starts packing? Learn certain Italian phrases. "I really want to find out what 'blast in a glass' is in Italian because that's my nickname. I need to know what that means so I can tell all the Italian men."
And since "Jersey Shore" is (slightly) lesser known in Italy, it may be easier for Cortese to snag a guy. "It's harder to figure out who actually likes me or who is just talking to me because I'm on the show. So right now I'm just basically hanging out with the people that were there before this even happened just to keep myself safe and out of problems."
