If there’s one thing we can say about our Jersey Shore girls, it’s that they are there for each other through and through. With Snooki joining Season 17 of Dancing With the Stars, it’s good to know that she can count on bestie Deena Nicole Cortese to root for her.

Snooks is already matched up with Sasha Farber for the upcoming season — with the official announcement coming on September 4 on Good Morning America — but the world is already reacting to her casting. With mixed feelings from fans and haters, Deena exclusively told Wetpaint Entertainment that she’s totally Team Snooki!

“I think it’s awesome,” Deena said. “It’s so great. I’m sure she’s going to go far. She’s very confident, I’ll say that.”

We have to agree. With that smokin’ hot bod and her cheering section at home (hello, Jionni and Lorenzo) she’s got a shot at making it far.

But will Deena show up to the ballroom to support her fellow guidette? “I’m going to be really busy with my music, but if I have time, I’ll definitely come to a taping,” she said. “I’d love to.”

What do you think about Snooki’s chances on Dancing With the Stars? Hit the comments and let us know if you’re on Team Snooki!
