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.

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 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.

Jerseylicious Red Carpet Premiere Season 2

The hubs and I on the red carpet

On September 7th I was invited, once again, to attend the red carpet premiere for the second season of the hit show “Jerseylicious”. I knew it would be a great night, as was at the first premiere, you can check out my blog post here.

The premiere was held at 4Sixty6 Lounge in West Orange, NJ. I must say the venue was super chic. The owner is really hands on and even gave the hubs and I a tour at the end of the night.

I was able to hang out on the red carpet and check out the cast as they got out of their limos and headed into the event. I had a chance to interview a number of the cast members again. Every Monday I will feature a new interview from one of the “Jerseylicious” cast members. Subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss a beat.
