Leaving her days at Karma behind! Paula Pickard became a fan-favorite after her fling with Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino on MTV’s Jersey Shore. Since then, the brunette beauty has found new love with her fiancé, Chris, and they share a darling daughter, Evalyse Joanna.  

When news broke about Jersey Shore: Family Vacation being renewed for season 4 on June 25, some viewers couldn’t help but reminisce about some of the former characters. Of course, Paula came to mind.

She now works as a bartender, according to her Instagram bio, and her hobbies include shopping at Michael’s as well as watching South Park and Harry Potter. 

Paula recently shared a photo from her breathtaking outdoor engagement shoot and responded to a fan’s sentimental comment about her time on the show.

“I have always loved you from watching you on [Jersey Shore],” one social media user wrote, pointing out how happy they are to see her glow up. “You are always such a beautiful, sweet and kind-hearted girl.”

In her response, the mother of one revealed she is thrilled with the way everything panned out.

“It’s been almost 10 years and the relevancy of that show is non-existent [for me] these days. I appreciate the love, living my best life with more blessings than I can count,” Paula wrote on June 16.

These days, Mike also moved on with his beautiful wife, Lauren Sorrentino (née Pesce), who was definitely his rock during the star’s 8-month prison sentence for tax evasion. He celebrated being four years clean and sober in December 2019 and thanked his leading lady for sticking by his side through the hard times.

After being released from prison, the TV personality was overjoyed to be able to spend Christmas with his loved ones for the first time since he was behind bars.

“[Lauren and I] are so grateful this year to be able to have our holiday since I just got home,” Mike, 37, told In Touch exclusively over the holidays.

“We’re hosting Christmas Eve this year for my family and her family,” he added. “We’re doing Christmas Eve with the seven fishes, which is an Italian tradition. And I get so excited for that every year because … it’s really like living your best life. So we’re just all happy that we’re all together.”

Paula and Mike’s chapter is over, but there’s one thing they still have in common — how much they adore their families!
