Cruisin with Olivia

 

Olivia Blois Sharpe

Olivia Blois Sharpe from the Style Network’s hit show Jerseylicious will be celebrating her birthday aboard the Norwegian Jewel for the Gatsby Girls Getaway. I had a chance to sit down and chat about the big day with Olivia at the Gatsby recently. Here’s what she had to say.

Katie – So we are celebrating your birthday on the cruise!

Olivia – They are going to make it one of the themes for the night and have a big party. Everybody on the cruise is invited to come. There are so many lounges and clubs on the ship. There are things open 24 hours so you can get drinks food whatever time of night or day. And I’m gonna make sure my birthday’s gonna be kicka**.

Katie – What are you looking forward to the most? Celebrating your birthday on the cruise?

Olivia – Honestly, I’ve never been on a cruise before.

Katie – Me neither!

Olivia – Really? Yeah I’ve never been on a cruise before so I’m just really excited to go. I’m excited to celebrate my birthday. I feel like every year I try to come up with something to do for my birthday and it just ends up downhill. Never ends up good.

Katie – That happens to me just about every year.

Olivia – Last year I think we were filming when it was my birthday.

Katie – So no Tracy on this trip?

Olivia – No. I’m going to bring my boyfriend though.

For more information on the Gatsby Girls Getaway and how you can celebrate Olivia’s birthday with her read my previous blog here.

Interview with Tracy DiMarco – Jerseylicious Season 2 Red Carpet Premiere

Katie – @KateFoxx wrote me and wanted to know is there an end to the feuding in sight between you and Olivia? I’m thinking no.

Tracy – There will never be an end, you know why? Because everyone thinks I’m the bitch but she is the vindictive, spiteful, revengeful person. She is dating my ex-boyfriend now and you guys will see that this season.

Katie – Get out!

Tracy – And she was all about sloppy seconds, but look who’s doing it now.

Katie –   @KateFoxx also wants to know if you could transform any celebrity into a true Jersey girl, who would it be and why?

Tracy – I would transform Katy Perry. She is way too California girl. She needs some teasing, smoky eye. She’s halfway there, but she needs to get on the east coast. Jerseylicious girl not California girl. She’s fun. She would be able to hang with us.

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

Tracy – To stay really, really humble because people don’t like when things go to your head. I can’t stand that. There are a couple of people on this show that they can’t fit through the door anymore, ya know what I mean? You really need to thank your fans. You should always respond to their Facebook, Twitter, email anything.

Katie – You are great at that!

Tracy – I am! That’s my biggest thing. I do it every day. I take an hour out of my day every single day and I respond to as many people as I can. Because they are the people that make us anything. We are nobody. We’re not celebrities we’re just people and people follow us. For some reason people think we’re cool enough. I don’t think we are. Maybe we are. You just need to stay really grounded  because otherwise, fans will go away if they see the true celebrity in you.

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

Tracy – Respect the fans. They are so excited to meet you. What most people don’t understand is that I’m so excited to meet them. When they come up to me I get nervous. I’m like oh my god, you wanna talk to me? It’s so much fun. I get really excited that they even care. That’s why I like to stay in contact with them because they are the best people in the world.

Katie – You are so super sweet, but there are the Tracy haters. Anytime anyone ever says anything, I’m like seriously she’s like the sweetest girl.

Tracy – I am! I really am!

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

Tracy – I refuse to speak in the morning until I brush my teeth. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night  and if I wake up and open my eyes, I have to brush my teeth. It’s a really OCD thing.

Katie – Who of all the celebs that you’ve met, would you say is your favorite and who has the best style?

Tracy – The same person for both. Jeannie Mai from the Style Network’s “How Do I Look” its right before our show. She was the nicest person and has the most insane style. Also Simon from Kim Kardashian’s “The Spin Crowd”, he is a doll and Jonathan. I met Kendra, the Kardashian’s, Meryl Streep, a whole bunch of people, but those two are my favorite. They were the most down to earth.

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

Tracy – Well Gayle and Alexa get a little crazy. They fight about everything.

Katie – But she’s here tonight so it must not be too bad.

Tracy – No they are professional. They’re not like me and Olivia. When they want to fight about something, they go hard. I think the staff changes a little bit. Filippo’s more involved now. We have a new girl named Veronica, who’s very sweet. We have a lot more people working on the floor. We have Sammy the receptionist. So we have a lot of brand new people.

Katie – So now Briella… wasn’t Briella friend’s with Olivia last season?

Tracy – Yes.

Katie – But she’s here today without Olivia and the two of you guys seem to be getting along. I’ve been noticing that.

Tracy – Yes.

Katie – Just something I noticed.

Tracy – All I’m gonna say is Briella woke up and realized who her so called friend really was.

Katie – Interesting.

Tracy – You try to be Olivia’s friend for more than six months, it won’t work out. She’s a sociopath.

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.
