She could have done with a little support from her friends prior to getting drunk and arrested less than a fortnight ago. And Deena Cortese might now want to start thinking about a little more support in the bikini department. The 25-year-old Jersey Shore star took a dip at Seaside Heights with her fellow cast members today, as filming for the sixth season of the hit MTV series continues.

The voluptuous reality star walked out of the water in tiny black bikini bottoms with white polka dots.
But her black bikini top was anything but supportive in the places most needed.
Cortese has transformed herself in the last year, having dropped several dress sizes by using a 1200-1400 calorie-a-day meal delivery program called The Fresh Diet.

The wayward personality's grapple with gravity today didn't stop her joining in the day's sporting activities. TV's favourite meatball was seen throwing a yellow nerf ball with Mike Sorrentino and other cast members as they frolicked on the beach and in the water. Deena's smiles were a far cry from her sorry state earlier this month, when she was arrested for disorderly conduct and intoxication.

The curvy brunette and other cast members were in a Mexican restaurant in Seaside Heights before she went into the roadway and began dancing and impeding traffic. She was taken to police headquarters, processed and released to her mother. Cortese could face a fine up to $500 and up to 30 days in jail.

Other cast members of the show played their part as fun-loving sun worshippers today, just weeks after getting into a massive bar brawl at the Bamboo Bar, also in Seaside Heights Ronny, looking tanned as ever, frolicked in the surf in a pair of low-slung white boardshorts and shades, while Pauly joined him in the surf in a pair of combat shorts. Ronnie's boardshorts of choice were two-toned blue.
Maximum curves: Deena's recent arrest hasn't slowed her down
Just a few days ago, Deena and Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino were spotted on an exciting double date with mystery partners. It's a thrilling development for fans of the show, especially as Deena is so often unlucky in love. But the new squeezes were nowhere in sight for today's shoot.

A lot has happened since the previous season -- Snooki is six months pregnant and engaged, Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino is back from rehab, on/off couple Sammi and Ronnie were spotted kissing, and Deena has had a complete makeover. Back in March, a far slimmer Cortese sparked plastic surgery rumours after attending MTV's Spring Break party at the Palms Casino Resort with more dramatically-arched eyebrows and a stronger chin. 'I actually had a nose job,' the 25-year-old confessed toPage Sixlast August when asked if Jenni 'JWoww' Farley had gone under the knife. According to the New York Post, Deena's attitude towards plastic surgery was 'more power to you.
