Watch out, Seaside Heights. And call the police in advance.

Why? There's a new Guidette in town: Deena Nicole Cortese.

MTV has confirmed that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's real-life BFF, who has also been referred to as simply Deena Nicole, will join the Jersey Shore cast in Season 3.

The new cast member has been all but confirmed in recent weeks, but the network has not acknowledged bringing her on board until now. What can we expect?

Cortese describes herself as "class in a glass and party in a body," so you know it's going to be good. She's already started filming and partying with the crew.

Deena and Snook are totes BFFs.

Deena has been seen shooting scenes with her girl Snooki, as well as the classy likes of co-stars Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Jenni "J-Woww" Farley.

"Deena Cortese embodies the quintessential Jersey Shore archetype," Jersey Shore casting director Doron Ofir recently told The Examiner of his new star.

The new star, who is single, "is a Jersey native, proud to live, play, love at the shore. I hope America loves her as much as I do. Get ready for 'Rockstar'!"

Live, Play, Love. In other words, Scream, Fight, Bone.

Jersey Shore's second season premieres tonight on MTV.

You will not be seeing Deena Nicole on it.

Still with Angelina Pivarnick out for Season 3 (she was apparently back for Season 2 after being out for Season 1), there’s room in the Seaside Heights enclave for a hot new guidette, and they've apparently found one in Snooki's friend.

Deena Nicole, real name Deena Nicole Cortese, is reportedly filming the reality show’s third season in N.J. Here's the brief rundown on her ...

Watch out, Jersey Shore. Deena Nicole has arrived.

Real Jersey girl. Unlike The Situation, Snooki, Ronnie, Vinny and Pauly D, Cortese is the real deal. She hails from New Egypt, N.J., in Ocean County. Wonder what New Jersey's Governor, who hates the show, thinks about that.

Snooki's pal. Cortese goes way back with Jersey Shore leading lady Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. The pickle-loving reality star even reportedly helped Cortese get cast on the show. Cute.

Single status. Before deleting her Myspace page, Cortese posted that she was a single lady. But - sorry guys - one that's currently "not looking for anything."

Forget GTL, it's BBB. “All I need is beats, my broads, and booze,” she posted on Facebook before she began filming. NOTE: Become a fan of THG on Facebook!

Tomorrow on MTV ... It. Is. On. Jersey Shore returns for Season 2.

The entire cast is intact and now filming Season 3, to boot ... and then some. Deena Nicole, a self-proclaimed “Bad Ass Brunette,” will play a big role.

Where did the new star come from? Sources say she was already BFFs with Snooki and seems like she’s going to fit in well with the rest of the cast.

Deena, real name is Deena Nicole Cortese, and is good friends with Snooki, who helped get her cast. She was also hangin' with J-Woww on Saturday.

The 23-year-old is a former cheerleader who was on the squad at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, N.J. She went to New Egypt High School.

Jersey Shore's new girl looks like ... the other Jersey Shore girls.

Maybe Garden State Governor Chris Christie, who recently called out the show, will be satisfied that they added another bona fide Jersey-ite at least.

Well, at least until he sees Deena Nicole's racy MySpace page, which is filled with profanity-laced proclamations and sexy shots of her drinking, etc.

“I don’t give a f**k,” is interspersed with sexy pics and quotes like “I’m addictive and expensive like cocaine. I should just have my own TV show!”

The foul-mouthed female also recorded a video blog on her MySpace page in 2008, in which she rants about the way she's been treated by dudes.

Swearing revenge, she says, "we're gonna play you out, n**ga."

Yup, sounds like she should fit in fine with Ronnie Magro & Co.

Sources close to production confirm Deena will be appearing in a number of episodes in Season 3, but isn't considered a "permanent" cast member.
