OK! can exclusively reveal that Jerseylicious will return to Style later this year for the series' sixth season, but don't expect the entire cast to be cooped up in The Gatsby for all 10 episodes. Olivia is heading to the Jersey Shore to enjoy her summer, and taking the cameras with her!
"I was actually shocked because our show revolves a lot around the salon but it’s summertime and all of the producers know that if we film over the summer Olivia is going to have a mental breakdown," she tells OK!. "I’m like, 'You don’t understand because all of you live in LA—we only have warm weather for two months!' They’re not willing to drive all the way down the Shore and do whatever we want to do sometimes because they have to bring the whole production crew with us. So for the first time ever they were like, 'Well what would be your idea of a great summer?' And I said, 'Getting to hang out with my friends, go down to the Shore, get a shore house,' and they were like, 'All right, let’s do it.' I’m so excited, obviously. I get to have fun and enjoy my summer and film."
Despite the change in scenery, Olivia is sure one thing will remain the same—drama, drama, drama.
"There’s always drama," she admits. "There’s already drama going on in my life right now that I’m sure will cross over when we start filming. I don’t want to say what it is because nobody really knows about it yet but there’s definitely drama with friendships and stuff like that. I think regardless of where you are there will always be drama. Last season I tried to stay out of it and do my own thing. Honestly ever since I left the salon I definitely feel a lot more at ease."
With over 1.1 million likes on the Jerseylicious Facebook page, fans indeed want to know, have alliances and the group dynamic shifted since last season's super intense reunion special?
"When I watch the reunion…I feel like always people tried to stay out of it like Gayle and Anthony, they tried to stay out of the arguments, but that was the first time they were like, 'Enough is enough. You can’t act like that,'" says Olivia. "I honestly kind of felt bad in a sense because everyone was like, 'Wow, Tracy, that’s not right. You can’t do things like that.' I feel like they never really took sides but I feel like at the reunion everyone decided this is crazy. It didn’t come across on camera how bad it really was. But I have no problems with Gigi. We’re fine. I don’t hang out with her all the time but I have no issue with her whatsoever. Everything else besides that is pretty much the same."
Season six will also focus on Tracy’s upcoming nuptials, Anthony's search for the next big business idea and a Gatsby anniversary event planned by Christy, but for Olivia, she has one goal in mind.
"Me and Michelle have desperately, desperately wanted to party with Gayle," she laughs. "We have this vision where me, Michelle and Gayle are like Charlie’s Angels. We desperately want to go out and have fun with her because we think she’d be so much to go out with."
A club scene with Olivia, Michelle and Gayle at Karma would be maje—how I miss that drunken debauchery since Jersey Shore ended.
Produced by Endemol USA with Alex Duda and Anthony Dominici serving as Executive Producers and Sarah Weidman and Merah Chung executive producing for Style, I expect all of you to make this happen!
