Interview with Anthony Lombardi – Jerseylicious Season 2 Red Carpet Premiere


Anthony Lombardi and his wife Patty

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 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.



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.

What’s to come? Will Anthony Lombardi become the teacher this season? Will Filippo Giove kiss a girl? What’s going on with the Tracy DiMarco and Olivia Blois Sharpe feud? How’s Christy Periera handling motherhood? Is there drama in sight between owner Gayle Giacomo and Alexa Prisco?

Stay tuned to find out.
