Kathie Lee Tells Deena and Sammi She Can't Tell the 'Jersey Shore' Guys Apart (VIDEO)

Ahead of the 'Jersey Shore' finale, Sammi and Denna stopped by the fourth hour of 'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) for a chat with Kathie Lee and Hoda. They watched some slow-motion footage of Deena falling on her face, briefly bonded over their shared love of booze, and then Kathie Lee told them she couldn't tell the 'Jersey Shore' guys apart.

About mid-way through the interview, it became entertainingly clear that neither host has been keeping up with the show, as Hoda asked if they were dating anyone, either from 'Jersey Shore' or outside it. When the producers put a graphic of Ronnie up on the screen, Kathie Lee asked, "Are you guys fighting over him? Who is that, Paulie D?"

Ed Helms & Deena Cortese, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Jay Leno knew exactly what a Jersey Turnpike was when he asked Deena Cortese about it on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). He just wanted to hear the 'Jersey Shore' cast member explain the dance move.

When she stumbled around to find the words, he suggested she just go ahead and show him. Luckily for him -- or not, depending on your perspective -- Ed Helms was the first guest, and he was still on the couch, so Deena invited him to dance with her.

The move required very little from him. He simply stood there, while she backed up into him and shook her butt. "That's a Jersey Turnpike?" Helms marveled when it was over. "I had another name for that."

Deena Cortese of 'Jersey Shore' on 'The Wendy Williams Show'Wendy Williams has often expressed her opinion that new 'Jersey Shore' cast member Deena Cortese is trying to steal Snooki's spotlight. Today on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated), she had Deena on to broach the subject directly.

Williams began the interview by laying out her charge: "You've made an impression on all of us. It is no secret that many of thought you were there and trying to steal Snooki's spotlight."

"That's ridiculous," Cortese responded. "Honestly, me and Snooks are just really, really close. I mean, I'm just loud. I'm outgoing. What you see on the show is how I am in real life." And with that, the studio audience gave her a standing ovation.
