You can’t get more “Jerseylicious” than Green Brook

Big news, New Jersey residents: The Garden State will no longer be defined by “The Sopranos” and “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

No, sirree. Instead, the little state that could will from now on be known as “Jerseylicious”… or so The Style Network hopes.

The network has given the greenlight to the *reality* show – and yes, it’s most definitely called “Jerseylicious” – which will follow both the professional and personal lives of six hair stylists. The action, according to New Jersey Newsroom, will take place at The Gatsby Salon in Somerset County’s Green Brook (which also happens to be the home of “Real Housewife of New Jersey” Teresa Giudice’s favorite furniture store, Unique Furniture).

“Our viewers are in for a wild ride when they enter this hairspray mayhem,” Salaam Coleman Smith, president of The Style Network, said in a statement obtained by New Jersey Newsroom. “We love that this series takes a fun look at the always entertaining personal lives and real-life drama of this outrageous staff while also capturing the fabulous makeovers and ‘Jerseylicious’ styles at the salon. It’s a perfect combination for Style’s young female audience.”

The salon, located on Route 22, is run by Gayle and Christy, a mother/daughter team. After two marriages, Gayle is back on the dating scene, and Christy is working hard at building up her stake in the business, says the article. Other stylists profiled on the show include Gigi, who is described as a “Bridezilla”-wannabe, and Anthony, the lone male who is trying to provide for his family.

The show, which is set to debut in the spring, will also be filming in other Central New Jersey locales. It is produced by Endemol USA, which also produces “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” “Deal or No Deal,” Big Brother” and “Wipeout.”
