The Jersey Shore Family Vacation premiere roped in an impressive 3.6 million viewers, and the show is already in talks for a second season. In an interview with Life&Style, the cast members of the show, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Deena Cortese opened up about their return to reality TV with some juicy secrets from the show.

"Even though we're old, we can still have a good time," Deena told Life & Style. "We're still hot messes!" Snooki later added.

Speaking of the other members of the cast, the duo agreed on one name when asked which cast member on the show has grown the most since the original Jersey Shore premiered in 2009. Their answer: Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.

"He's sober now," Deena said. "He's still a little cocky, but he's just a better person altogether." As for who has changed on the show in the least, they both agreed that Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is the perfect contender for that role.

Perhaps the only thing Snooki regrets about life is that as a mom in her 30s, day-drinking isn't really an option anymore. "If we drank all day then we'd have to sleep in all day to recover," she told the publication. "The hangovers were the worst."

On the other hand, Deena spilled some more beans about the rumored second season, and what viewers can expect from it. "We really are family and sisters and brothers [now], so there were no boundaries," she explained to the magazine. "We were able to just say what we wanted without worrying about if someone was never going to talk to us again."

Recently, in an interview with InStyle, Snooki also revealed that the cast of the hit show was paid in gift cards for the first season of the show. “We would get $200 a week from the Shore Store,” said Snooki. “I had never gotten that much in a week, like, every single week, because you usually get paid every two weeks.”

However, she has come a long way now in terms of money and has found better ways to manage her finances. “My main goal is to always try and save, and I invest in properties,” she said. “Me and my husband have a lot of shore houses that we buy, make amazing, and rent out. We’re trying to build on that to have a lot of income.”
