Snooki uploaded a picture of the group and captioned it, "DEENER’S baby shower for CJ! Can’t wait to meet another addition to our family. Love these ladies so much!!!!!! #Family #MySisters ❤️❤️". While Sammi wrote alongside another picture, "Deena’s Baby Shower ☺️ #Fam". Snooki also posted a picture of her 4-year-old daughter Giovanna posing with JWoww's 4-year-old Meilani and wrote, "Girls working it at CJ’s shower! @deenanicolemtv".
As reported by ET, Deena has remained very close to Sammi over the years and spoke about why she chose to defend her on the show when the cast would bring up her name. Deena said, "It was important to me because I would hope that, if I wasn't in the house, she would do the same for me, and I really think she would. I told her I wasn't really gonna let anybody talk bad about her and she's fine, she thinks the whole thing was funny, she doesn't care".
Sammi was in an on-and-off relationship with Ronnie Ortiz Magro when they were filming 'Jersey Shore' between the years 2009 and 2012. She was one of the only original stars who did not join in for the reboot 'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation'.
As reported by US Weekly, a source shared, "Sammi isn’t regretting her decision to go back on the show at all. She knew if she went back on it would be toxic. Just look at how everything is unfolding with Ronnie. She would have been thrown into this cheating drama for no reason just for being attached to the show". Ronnie's volatile relationship with his baby mama Jen Harley has been making headlines as the couple have documented their fights and posted it on social media.
The couple celebrated Jen's birthday last month only days after Ronnie claimed that Harley had given him a black eye as she took to Instagram to share that she would never ever speak to him again. Sammi and Ronnie called off their relationship in the year 2014 after Ronnie cheated on her. Sammi is currently dating Christian Biscardi.
