Listen up, Snooki and The Situation: Danielle Staub has fighting words for you!
In an interview with OK! Weekly, the Really Effed Up Housewife of New Jersey is asked about the recent spotlight on New Jersey, courtesy of shows such as her Bravo hit, Jersey Shore and Jerseylicious. She takes full credit for the state's glory:
“It’s the Jersification of the world,” she says. “I’d like to think it started with yours truly. I brought enough to bring a lot of attention to New Jersey, and I’m going to hold it and keep it.”
You might wanna band together and protest, Jersey residents. Is THIS really the image you wish to represent you?
Despite the recent release of her sex tape, along with the televised brawl between her and a couple co-stars, Staub tells the magazine that she's a role model for her kids:
“What I’ve learned about myself is to watch more carefully what I do say, and what I do. I try to set a good example for my children through what they’re learning when I’m living.”
As for her home state, Danielle takes pleasure in speaking for it. What should the world know about New York's lovely neighbor?
“The biggest misconceptions about New Jersey would be that we are filled with gossip... It’s about being real, being good to one another and family-oriented. I think people are missing it when they think we’re all into shopping. I cook. I cook every day for my kids... we’re all about family.”
Note to Danielle: trust us, the issue people take with you has nothing to do with shopping.
