‘Jerseylicious’ Stars Anthony and Olivia Talk New Book ‘The Glamour State’

If you think the cast of Style Network’s Jerseylicious only loves drama, you’re wrong. They also have major adoration for their home state. In honor of Jersey’s 225th birthday this year, cast members Anthony Lombardi and Olivia Blois Sharpe, along with series guest star Karl Giant, set out to create “The Glamour State”, a book paying homage to the area’s major achievements since its inception.

The Garden State Book

Bravo, Anthony!

“I’ve been wanting to do a book for a couple of years now but I wasn’t sure what to do,” says Anthony. “I stumbled on this story that New Jersey is turning 225 years old and I was like, ‘I’m on a show about New Jersey. I’m a proud New Jerseyan. How can I somehow incorporate the state that I live in and still keep it in the world of fashion and makeup?’

I approached Olivia about it and we came up with doing a retrospective of New Jersey through the years. It was too impossible to get everything so we picked out some key things, iconic figures and brought it all back to the hair and beauty industry.”

Aside from well-known New Jersey icons like Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi, what else can the Garden State claim? Glitter, for one! Here is Olivia laying glitter on Michelle for the book!

“One fact that really made me happy and made complete sense is that glitter was invented here,” says Olivia. “I had no idea but it makes sense because we love glitter. There’s glitter in everything we do.”

The Jerseylicious cast supported Anthony and Olivia’s project so much that they offered themselves up to be photographed in an array of wild, but stylish, scenarios, and even set their personal conflicts aside for two days to make it happen.

Gigi’s Cranberry Dish!

Yes, Gigi braved the cold cranberries for the sake of art!

“Everybody was so cool and whatever we told them to do, they did,” says Anthony. “I’ve been around these people for a long time and I’ve seen them freak out over the stupidest things but this couldn’t have gone smoother. The only one that gave me a problem was Alexa not wanting to be in the book because at the time she was 8 ½ months pregnant. The one thing I’ve learned is you don’t mess with an 8 ½ month pregnant woman because you’re not going to win that battle.

When she told me no I tried to convince her a little bit but she didn’t really love the way she looked and, like I said, I get it.

Back To Anthony:

I thought Gigi was going to give me a problem with getting into the pool of cranberries. No, she put that bathing suit on and jumped in that tub without a second guess.”

What a terrific shot by Karl!

When it comes to choosing a favorite image from the book, Olivia admits she just can’t do it.

“All of the pictures are so amazing,” gushes Olivia. “I really love every single one of them. I really like the cranberry one because I think Gigi looks flawless and phenomenal in it. I love that she’s bathing in cranberries but, overall, I really love every single one. There wasn’t one picture where it was a nightmare to do. Every single picture I had a blast. We had two days to get all of those shots in and we accomplished it and everyone had a good time. It wasn’t easy but I had so much fun with every single picture.”

Congrats to Tracey and the “New Boo” XOXO, and Hellooo Ms. Gigi…you were workin’ the cranberries girrrl! Thanks to Anthony Robert… you and the crew did a great job representing your state. I live in Central Florida and before the show, I knew very little about New Jersey, I’ve never been there. After watching the show tonight, I am thrilled about visiting some day to get that Jersey feeling that was featured tonight. You guys have inspired me more than you know within my own career! So great job…PS-No more fights, get it together, Ladies!

  3. I love Jerseylicious, and I miss watching it for so long now. I only have basic cable tv, and you think that Bravo tv, could just pick up another channel in the 200’s so we all could watch this show on basic cable tv. I miss you all, so much. Miss the show. Miss you Olivia, Anthony, Gigi, etc…..Congrat’s Alexa on your marriage and baby with Danny. Olivia, I want to know more about what’s going on with you. Gigi, are you still with Gayle’s Salon? etc…. I miss you all. So thrilled when I found this site tonight. So happy that I see all this going on. Great, Great, so Great / Fantastic Job, “Olivia & Ant” for the Glamour State, Book & Photo’s.” OMG, it is all so
    Fantastic. Such a great job. Hope to hear from you Olivia & all. Miss you guy’s so much. Want to watch you all again, just can’t afford it. Have to stay with Basic Cable. I wish Bravo tv, would pick a regular tv station and air Jerseylisicous, so we all could watch your show. I miss it awful. Great Job, God bless you all. Sheila

    • Thanks for your comment, and let Bravo know that you want to see more of Jerseylicious. They have run previous seasons in the past. Olivia, Anthony, Tracy, Gigi, Gayle and the entire “Jerseylicious” cast appreciate the support!
