New Jersey’s Queen of Mean has spoken and she wants “Jersey Shore” out!
]]><![CDATA[With the fourth season of the MTV reality show set to begin filming in
Italy, the homeland has been vocal in their distaste for the show and
its portrayal of Italian-Americans. Come to find out, even fellow
Jersey reality stars are unimpressed with the gang.
Zap2it talked Garden State gossip with “Jerseylicious” star Tracy DiMarco, who has trash talked her way into the hearts of fans over the past two seasons of the Style reality show.
DiMarco holds nothing back when we ask her about the spotlight on Jersey
and what she thinks of the “situation” down at the shore.
“I’m friends with Pauly [Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio], so I try to
watch it once in a while but I’m not the biggest fan of it,” she admits.
“I think it’s kind of trashy and it’s hard for me to watch sometimes
because it gives Jersey such a bad name. It’s because they’re not even
from Jersey, so I get kind of offended by it.”
The glam Jersey girl is quick to call the cast members “really big trash
bags,” except for new found friend Pauly and Deena Cortese, whom she’s
known for years.
“I’ve known Deena for forever. I can’t say anything bad about [her],”
DiMarco says, before quickly finding a loophole. “I definitely think
she’s crazy. There’s something definitely missing upstairs — like a
couple light bulbs upstairs are not on. But other than that, I think
she’s a really nice girl.”
Like the rest of us here at Zap2it, DiMarco doesn’t expect the Italy excursion to make for good TV after the strict guidelines set in place
by the mayor of Florence. The cast has been restricted from drinking in
public while filming, and the city is not to be portrayed as a partying
“I just think that Italy doesn’t want them and I mean no offense, but
Jersey doesn’t want them either,” the 23-year-old slams. “They make it
seem like they live here or something, they don’t. They just come here
and party for two months and then they go home, but they act like they
A true Jersey girl, DiMarco enlightens us on why her culture is suddenly
appealing to the masses, despite her distaste for these “Shore”
“I think Jersey’s amazing,” she gushes. “People are starting to realize
that we’re really genuine people and we’re just a lot of fun. We’re
different because we don’t give a f*** what people think about our
clothes, or the way we dress, or the way we look.”
Adding, “I think they kind of envy how much confidence we all have… We’re kind of raw about everything that we do.”
So… remember that time DiMarco spit in co-star/worker Olivia Sharpe‘s
face? Well, look forward to even more cat fights when Season 3 of
“Jerseylicious” returns. DiMarco gave us some great dirt on what to
expect, which we will share with you all very soon.
You can watch the Vivica A. Fox hosted reunion special when it airs on
Style Sunday May 8th at 8 PM. DiMarco tells us, “It was insane… If I
wasn’t there, I wouldn’t have believed that it actually happened.”
We can’t wait.
