Katie – How’s the Anthony Robert Salon going?

Anthony – Everything’s great! Busy! Thank God!

Katie – What changes are we going to see at the Gatsby this season?

Anthony – You’re pretty much going to see what you saw last season, only a little amped up a bit. You’re going to see some different alliances form. You may see a little clashing of the Titans maybe so to speak. You might see the teacher become the student in one of the episodes.

Katie – I heard that.

Anthony – You’re going to see a couple of different things. I’m the teacher but I might become the student for something. I can’t tell you what though.

Katie – Maybe you’re going to learn how to make pizza.

Anthony – Ya never know .

Katie – I think I just figured that one out.

Anthony – You’re off on that. You’re off but you’re close.

Anthony Lombardi & Filippo Giove

Katie – What is the biggest thing you’ve learned since your new found fame on “Jerseylicious”?

Anthony – I never realized that so many people watch TV. I’m glad for it. I’m loving the fact that we go out and get recognized. So far it’s all been fun.

Katie – Best advice you’ve gotten since being on the show?

Anthony – Keep it real. Remember who you are, remember who your friends are. The guy who taught me how to cut hair is here tonight. He’s fantastic.

Katie – What’s something that your fans would be surprised to know about you? Any weird tricks? Maybe you don’t know how to dance?

Anthony -  I don’t know how to dance! I’m not a good dancer. I would be the first one voted off of “Dancing with the Stars”.

Katie – I’d call in. I’d vote for you Anthony.

Katie – What’s it like to have your life on television? Do you regret putting anything out there?

Anthony – Absolutely not! It’s been a wonderful experience, the crew and the producers have been absolutely 100% perfect. They didn’t portray me in any different way. I couldn’t be happier with the way I come across on the television.

Katie – I agree. You are absolutely the same on TV as you are in person.

Interview with Gayle Giacomo– Jerseylicious Season 2 Red Carpet Premiere

Katie – A few people wrote me and wanted to ask a few questions.

@MrsMoNJ wants to know what are some safe products that pregnant women can use on their hair and face?

Gayle – I recommend Skinceuticals for their face. It’s a fabulous product and it would be the safest product. I also recommend Gatsby. We have all sulfate free shampoos and everything we have is great products, great hairspray and being pregnant you can use them.

Katie – What’s one of the biggest things you’ve learned since being on this show?

Gayle – It’s really been a very interesting thing to go through and I never thought I would ever have this opportunity. So I think everything I’ve been through is a learning experience.

Katie – I’m sure you’ve met a lot of celebrities since Jerseylicious aired. Who are your faves?

Gayle – Actually I really haven’t. I would love to meet Sarah Jessica Parker from Sex & the City. I love her style , to me that would be the ultimate.

Katie – We need to get her into the salon.

Gayle – Yes!

Katie – What changes are we going to see at the Gatsby?

Gayle – There’s a lot of changes. There are some things going on with me and Alexa. The salon looks a little different, we added a few more things to the salon to make it look better. There’s so much going on in Season 2.

Interview with Christy Periera – Jerseylicious Season 2 Red Carpet Premiere

Christy Periera

Katie – A couple of my readers wrote to me with some specific questions for you.

@MrsMoNJ asked – Is your pregnancy and new baby going to be part of the new season and what tips do you have for pregnant women to stay fab?

Christy – My pregnancy is a big part of the first ten episodes and my daughter is going to be a big part of the second half of the season. Just try and be really confident and secure because being pregnant, although it’s really wonderful, it’s hard. You know your body really, really changes.

Katie – I have to tell you your daughter has a great birthday.

Christy – Is it your birthday?

Katie – It is.

Christy – Wow that’s great! She came 11 days early.

Katie –   @MrsMoNJ also asked – What are some safe products that pregnant women can use on their hair and face?

Christy – When I was pregnant I used this semi permanent color and I really tried to stay away from all the chemicals. I did just use good conditioning treatments. Honestly, my hair was in the best condition it ever was from being pregnant, all the vitamins and stuff like that. As far as face products go as long as you don’t use anything that has acids or anything like that, same thing, I really didn’t need to use much . My skin and hair were really at its best while I was pregnant.

Katie – What is something that your fans would be surprised to know about you?

Christy – I can touch my tongue to my nose.

Katie – What’s the best advice you’ve gotten since being on the show?

Christy – it’s not the advice that I’ve gotten, but it’s the advice I’ve given myself and that’s to be true to who I really am. I really am myself and I tried not to change and I hope that shows and hope that everyone liked me for me.

Katie – What’s the biggest thing you’ve learned since you’re new found fame on “Jerseylicious”?

Christy – I guess the same thing. It’s been an amazing surreal experience and I hope it keeps going but like I said, I try not to let it get to my head and be true to myself and put my family and the salon first before the show. I cross my fingers and hope for the best for everything.

Interview with Filippo Giove – Jerseylicious Season 2 Red Carpet Premiere

Filippo Giove

Katie – What’s it like to have your life on TV?

Filippo – My life on TV is possibly one of the greatest things that’s ever happened to me believe it or not because my dreams are coming true. My destiny is to be on TV with “Jerseylicious” for the time being.

Katie – Earlier I overheard you saying that we will see you kissing a girl this season. Now I tweeted about that already and somebody said they think its Olivia.

Filippo – Oooo no no no. I can’t tell you who I’m going to be kissing. But I can tell you who I may be kissing or who I’ve kissed already is very, very sexy, very exotic.

Katie – What’s the biggest thing you’ve learned since your new found fame on “Jerseylicious”?

Filippo – You gotta be careful who you trust. Ya know you really can’t trust anybody when it comes down to this and you gotta have power. You can’t really listen to anybody. If someone tells you to do something you don’t wanna do. Don’t do it. You gotta do whatever makes you happy.

Katie – What’s something your fans would be surprised to know about you?

Filippo – My fans would definitely be surprised to know that I’m only 18 years old.

Katie – I have to tell you that my mother in law thinks you’re the cutest thing in the world.

Filippo – Well what is your mother in laws name?

Katie – Chickie.

Filippo – Chickie, thank you. I agree with you Chickie. I love me too Chickie.

Katie – I’m sure you’ve met a bunch of celebrities since “Jerseylicious” aired. Who was your fave?

Filippo – Believe it or not I have not met too many celebrities. Not yet. I definitely want to meet Kim Kardashian and Snooki.

Katie – Is that who you kissed?

Filippo – Is that who I kissed? Well we are on two different shows on E!, but you never know. Maybe we’ll get our own spinoff.

 

 

Interview with Alexa Prisco – Jerseylicious Season 2 Red Carpet Premiere

Alexa Prisco

Katie – What is it like putting your life out on TV? Do you regret putting certain events/relationships out there?

Alexa – It’s very organic for me to be on TV. I have a lot of things that happen to me on a day to day basis that wouldn’t happen to normal people. I don’t live my life with regrets.

Katie – What changes will we see at the Gatsby this season?

Alexa – Of course like any business you’re gonna see the Gatsby and the people around it, a bunch of obstacles, but of course with conflict there’s resolution. You’re gonna see a normal show. You’re gonna see us in the space going through all sorts of situations.

Katie – I loved the first season. I’m a big fan. What do you think is the biggest thing you’ve learned since your new found fame on Jerseylicious?

Alexa – I think since the show I’ve found that I’ve never known how evil people are. In general people are psychotic with emails and things like that. Emails that are five pages long with people giving these psychotic diatribes on how much they hate you. So I never knew how evil people were. I think that’s the only epiphany that I’ve had.

Katie – Best advice you’ve gotten since being on the show?

Alexa – Take everything with a grain of salt. It’s so easy to let different situations affect you, but I’ve just learned to take it with a grain of salt. It’s been great.

Katie – What is something your fans would be surprised to know about you?

Alexa – My fans would be surprised that I spend a lot of my time in sweatpants, no makeup on and my hair up. That’s the truth. If I can bum it I will bum it.
