Danielle Staub of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” has some serious beef with Jennifer Aniston. Aniston was recently a guest on “Chelsea Lately” to talk about her flick “The Bounty,” which was filmed in Atlantic City, New Jersey. At one point during the show, Aniston quipped simply, “What is with that smell?” This got Staub very riled up. She ranted to Us Weekly, “Why don’t you see more of New Jersey before you say it smells? If it were so bad, I wouldn’t be living here for 22 years. I will personalize a tour and take her to a fabulous lunch on me afterwards, all homemade Italian food, and a tour of all the wonderfully smelling places in New Jersey.” [NY Daily News]
I get the state pride, but who cares if someone thinks your state smells? Real Housewives, that’s who. But Aniston isn’t the only celeb to speak ill of a state or city. Here are a few other celebs who totally hate America, kinda!
- In October 2006 Sienna Miller was filming “The Mysteries of Pittsburgh” and told Rolling Stone that she refers to the town as “Sh*tsburgh.” In the article, she says, “Can you believe this is my life? Will you pity me when you’re back in your funky New York apartment and I’m still in Pittsburgh? I need to get more glamorous films.” The mayor guessed that Sienna probably hasn’t had the chance to enjoy the city. “If she would have, I think she would have found that Pittsburgh is a great place to live,” he said. [Pittsburgh Live] — But many of the residents of Pittsburgh seem to agree with Sienna. One said, “She’s wrong. It’s Psycho-burg.” Thanks for the correction!
- Megan Fox, who is known for never offending anyone, was once asked in an interview whether she would like to stop Megatron from destroying earth. She responded, “God! That’s a question I don’t have an answer for…I think I would make a deal with him and say instead of the entire planet, can you just take out all of the white trash, hillbilly, anti-gay, super bible-beating people in Middle America?” [Gossip Rocks] — I really appreciate that Fox has absolutely no filter.
- Even though Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz live in Los Angeles, they’re not down to raise their babies there. “Once you have a kid it’s a little bit different,” said Pete. “You’re more protective. You want them to have a normal life, or as normal as possible. We’re going to figure out moving somewhere that’s a little less public. But we still got to be close enough where we can work. There’ll be too many paparazzi and you’ll get mobbed. You’re just trying to protect your wife or your kid. It’s just frustrating.” [Monsters And Critics] — Obviously, Pete hates Los Angeles. Actually, I don’t blame him at all. Yesterday I saw a dozen paps stalking the Madden brothers and they’re hardly famous!
- Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes fame didn’t make friends in Texas when, at a sold-out concert in Fort Worth, the musician said, “I don’t know if you know this, but I hate your f***ing state. I’d put a f***ing gun to my head before I’d live in your state.” But then he told his audience that they weren’t normal Texans since they were enjoying his music, and went on to add, ” … if you were a normal Texan, you’d probably be roping steers and raping Indians.” [FREEwilliamsburg] — Geez Conor, they’re called Native Americans.
