'Jersey Shore' Star Deena Cortese Tweets Photo Of Her Slim Bikini Body

Snooki isn't the only "Jersey Shore" star who has gotten her body into tip-top shop for summer. Deena Cortese is also bikini-ready, and the reality star showed off her trim figure in a tweet Tuesday.

Cortese tweeted a photo of her bronzed bikini bod decked out in a yellow two-piece, saying she is happy summer is finally here. The 26-year-old had just returned from the beach and decided to lounge by her boyfriend Chris' pool.

Back in October, Cortese revealed she had lost 15 pounds and opened up about her struggles with self-confidence in an interview with InTouch magazine.

“I’ve always struggled with my body image. My weight was getting out of control, and I knew it was time to do something about it," she said, adding that she noticed the change while watching herself on the MTV reality series. “If you’re a little heavy, online bullies will treat you like crap. It’s sad. And it really hurts.”

Meanwhile, Cortese's partner in crime, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, flaunted her own weight loss in an Instagram post Tuesday. In a selfie shot, the pint-sized reality star can be seen flexing her muscles and revealing her teeny waist. She has been shedding the pounds since giving birth to her first child, Lorenzo, last August.
