Deena Nicole has gone through a remarkable physical transformation since she first appeared on Jersey Shore Season 3. But her appearance at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards seemed to cement the final product: Deena is officially one hot meatball.

Comparing Deena’s currently svelte figure and perfected features to a photo of Deena taken just over a year ago (top left), it’s obvious how much the new Deena has improved. Not that she wasn’t gorgeous to begin with, but maybe her new man Chris Buckner has added to her overall glow.
