Real Housewives of New Jersey Star Teresa Giudice in Pittsburgh to Knock Out Cancer

14 Nov

Last night, Teresa Giudice, the reality star known for her spot in the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast, was in Pittsburgh to appear at the Knock Out Cancer event at the Galleria.

Not only did she give Glitzburgh a quick shout-out (see video, below) but she happily posed with fans at a VIP reception before the main event. After the meet-and-greet, she signed cookbooks and posed with photos with other fans who bought a copy of her latest book, Fabulicious.

Tall Cathy from 96.1 KISS interviwed Ms. Giudice on stage, where Teresa said, “Now that I’m in Pittsburgh, I’ll say, I LOVE the Steelers. Go Steelers!” which the crowd loved. She spoke candidly about her feuds with the other women and her brother, and also mentioned that her dad (who is occasionally seen on the show) is in the hospital and is in ill health.

Giudice said that she was still having problems with some of her castmates, but that she is as proud as ever of her talented and adorable daughters, and that her husband “Juicy Joe” is thinking about opening up a winery near where they live in New Jersey. “We want to host wine tastings and stuff,” she said.

This wasn’t her first time in Pittsburgh. She says that in Season 4 you see that they actually had a layover here at the Pittsburgh airport.

Later, she took to Twitter to say she loved meeting her fans from Pittsburgh and she shared some photos of the event. Knock Out Cancer featured vendors and raffles, and proceeds from the night went to support research and awareness of various forms of cancer. SHAG Salon of Robinson was on hand to do fun pink extensions for breast cancer research, local singers performed, a caricature artist did drawings, and more. A lot of fun for a great cause!

Will the Real New Jersey Please Stand Up?

10 Sep

The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Jersey Shore. Jerseylicious.

These are just a few (yes, there’s more!) of the “gotta-love-’em” trashy reality TV shows out there that are giving the Garden State a bad name.

I saw Zach Braff – of Scrubs and Garden State fame – on E’s “The Daily 10” last night, lamenting this very fact, and mourning the loss of his home state’s reputation.

Now, I don’t know much about Jersey to begin with, but, if there were a handful of  shows on TV right now making Pittsburgh “trendy” for ALL THE WRONG REASONS, wouldn’t you all be upset?  I kind of feel bad for Jerseyites.

As Braff put it, one can’t exactly say that they spent a lovely weekend at the Jersey Shore without some GTL, Snooki, or fist-pumping reference.  (Though, could you say that before the MTV show? I don’t know. As I said, I know nothing about NJ. This isn’t my being rude, it is just unfamiliar territory for me.)

I mean, are ALL housewives in NJ table-flipping, hair-extension pulling, faux-drag drama queens like the ladies that I love to hate love…on the Real Housewives of New Jersey?

Of course not!

My question, though, is why do they all like spray tans so much? And the makeup? I mean TONS and TONS of makeup? Overkill of animal prints? Big hair? (Hello, Tracy, Olivia, Gatsby Salon staff! You certainly ARE Jerseylicious!) And the TEMPERS! Cat-fights left and right, girls hitting guys, guys hitting girls, table flipping, etc. etc….This CAN’T be all of Jersey.  (Just like all of Pittsburgh isn’t mullets………..)

I DO realize that they’re putting these people on TV for ratings. (And for that, I am thankful!) I’m on the side of people that reside in Jersey who have actual class and taste.

I mean, trust me, Pennsylvania gets a bad rap sometimes, too. Have you SEEN the “Pennsylvania Boys” video spoof of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls?”  Cut me a BREAK. Hello, embarrassing.

So, I want to hear from the normal people from Dirty Jersey  the lovely Garden State because as much as I love these people and these shows (and trust me, I do – my DVR doesn’t lie!) I feel as though the real New Jersey needs to stand up for itself!

Here’s a hug from Pittsburgh.

(And a fist pump for good measure.)
