This time around, Jennifer is revealing which of her RHONJ co-stars are generous and which are cheapos!
The RHONJ star reveals which co-stars donated to her earthquake relief fund for Turkey. Over the last month, Jennifer has been raising money in order to help those affected by two huge earthquakes that hit Turkey on February 7. First, a 7.3 magnitude earthquake hit northern Turkey near the border of Syria. Hours later, another earthquake with a magnitude of 7.5 hit the area. The event left nearly 60k dead and many others in need.
Jennifer tells The U.S. Sun why she teamed up with the Mayor of Paterson, New Jersey, and the NJCDC to create an earthquake relief fund for Turkey.
“People are homeless and are just begging for help. They’re all looking for me to be a voice. The first week that this happened, I was getting a lot of messages from people that are in Turkey. I’m of Turkish descent, and I have family in Turkey. Thank god no one was affected that I knew personally, but their extended family has been affected. 100 percent of the donations are used to buy supplies for those in need,” the mom of five explains.
The Bravoleb continues to urge RHONJ fans to donate as contributions have stalled recently, noting that a little goes a long way.
“I feel like now, since it has not been in the news as much as it had been, people are somewhat forgetting. I can’t forget because, for me, it’s personal. I keep being reached out to by people in need asking to be a voice. Here I am asking everybody to dig deep into their pockets,” she said. “Anything as little as $150 gets a full family a tent with flooring. We just need to get the word out there. We’ve spent all the money. We need to get the ball rolling. It’s a long road ahead of them.”
As for which members of her Bravo and RHONJ family have donated to the fund, Jennifer says she “personally made a very nice donation,” as did Andy Cohen.
To date, Jennifer has yet to receive any donations from the rest of the RHONJ cast and joked that she will be confronting Melissa Gorga, Rachel Fuda, Daniella Cabral, and Margaret Josephs for not donating.
Who wants to bet that Jennifer calls out the ladies at the reunion?!?! Can’t wait to see it.
RHONJ airs on Tuesdays at 9 pm on Bravo.
