More good news and bad news, Jersey Shore fans. Our beloved Deena Nicole, we have learned, is safe. She is, however, still without power and it’s unclear how much damage, if any, has been done to her home, the home of her boyfriend Chris Buckner or Deena’s and Chris’ parents’ homes. For the time being, though, we know our little meatball is hanging in there.

But she’s also heartbroken after learning about the destruction in Seaside Heights –
the place where Deena and the rest of the Jersey Shore cast have called home for the past four summers.

In an exclusive statement obtained by Wetpaint Entertainment, Deena shares her feelings:

"I'm really upset seeing all the destruction down the shore and I'm praying for them. I grew up in Seaside and would go there as a child. Seaside was a second home. My prayers are with the victims. I can't believe this is happening."

Wetpaint Entertainment has also learned that the Jersey Shore cast, along with MTV, is currently planning something to help give back to the community and raise money for its repair, but it’s too soon to tell what that event will be or where it will happen. In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers are with everyone.
