From N.J.'s "Queen of Mean" Tracy and sassy makeup artist Olivia to the salon's ab-tastic intern Filippo and overly eccentric Glam Fairy, Alexa, there is no way to avoid the blow-ups, blow-outs and just plain coming to blows when these proud Garden Staters get together at the Gatsby Salon. Don't miss the season three premiere of Style's highest-rated and most-watched series ever when "Jerseylicious" returns Sunday, May 15 at 8pm ET/PT. Also tune-in Sunday, May 8 at 9pm ET/PT to catch up with your favorite New Jersey divas in part one of the "Jerseylicious: Wild and Untamed," a tan-tastic reunion special, hosted by Vivica A. Fox ("Kill Bill: Vol. 1," "Dancing with the Stars"). Part two will air on Sunday, May 15 at 7pm ET/PT, leading into the new season premiere.
During this new season of "Jerseylicious," the budding stylists and business owners are at a crossroads in their professional careers while also attempting to navigate their personal lives, which have more road blocks, pot holes, breakdowns and weave-ing than the New Jersey Turnpike. Season three picks up with tensions still high after Gayle's Gatsby Salon won the coveted trophy for "Best Hair & Make-up" at New Jersey Fashion Week - the sexy sister to New York Fashion Week where couture gets wild with the help of animal print and Aquanet - beating out rivals Alexa's Glam Fairies and Anthony's newly reopened salon. The drama will continue to unravel as the cast's personal feelings collide with work obligations. The Gatsby attempts to break the Guinness World Record for most haircuts in an eight hour period by hosting a Style-A-Thon and enlists Anthony to help, but when Alexa show up unannounced, personal drama threatens to ruin The Gatsby's goal. The salons also venture into unfamiliar territory when the stylists participate in a bridal expo and attend a multi-cultural hair show. Today, hair products and lip glosses; tomorrow, the world - or at least all of Central Jersey.
Catch up with the most unpredictable cast on television:
Olivia is finally growing up. Back together with her boyfriend Mikey, she makes up her mind to never let her toxic relationships with Tracy, Briella or Doria get in the way of achieving her dreams. This season, looking to take her career to the next level, Olivia launches an on-location styling service provided through the Gatsby. The real challenge begins when Gayle wants Tracy to be part of the styling service team. Olivia may be ready to move on from the drama, but Tracy has other plans in mind. Let round three of the catfight begin!
Tracy decides that the Gatsby is a much better place to develop her career and cuts professional ties with Alexa's Glam Fairy business. Despite choosing to work at the Gatsby, her hatred for her colleague Olivia grows more and more each day. Olivia's streak of good luck in the romance and career departments only adds fuel to the fire. Even Tracy's onetime BFF Gigi is drawn to Olivia's positive energy. All this tension comes to a head when Gayle insists that Tracy work under Olivia during a Gatsby event and Tracy has a run-in with her ex -- Olivia's current boyfriend Mikey -- for the first time since their traumatizing breakup.
Gigi is embracing her new slim figure and is ready to let loose. After her recent breakup with Frankie, Gigi is single for the first time in her life and is slowly discovering that she is a strong, independent woman. However, with Christy's perpetual talk about her baby and Olivia rekindling her romance with Mikey, Gigi begins to wonder if she would rather settle down and start her own family.and if breaking up with Frankie was really the right thing to do.
Mother-daughter team Gayle and Christy are still beaming from the Gatsby winning the "Best Hair & Make-up" award at New Jersey Fashion Week and relishing the fact that they beat their rival, The Glam Fairy. And now that Gayle has her dramatic stylists under control -- for the time being, she is ready to expand her salon and make the Gatsby the most sought-after beauty destination in New Jersey. While Christy, the salon manager, is preoccupied with her new role of mother, Gayle enters the dating scene and looks for new business opportunities. She reaches out to Anthony about partnering with her on an exciting venture as expansion is a great way to build their beauty empire. Unfortunately, Gayle's business relationship with Anthony drives a rift between the ambitious mother and her stressed-out daughter who is starting to feel left behind and begins to question whether she can successfully play the roles of both mother and salon manager.
Anthony's newly renovated salon is open for business and flourishing. The only trouble is his four-chair space can't accommodate his booming business. When Gayle makes him an offer he can't refuse, Anthony is once again back to splitting his time between his salon and all the drama at the Gatsby. He is welcomed with open arms by intern Filippo who quickly puts Anthony on a diet to try to get him into better shape. Additionally, Anthony gets bit by the local political bug and considers running for office, and after much discussion with his wife Patty, their family may be expanding too.
Alexa "The Glam Fairy" Prisco still has her mind set on making the world a more gorgeous place.one smokey eye at a time. Her workspace, the Glam Factory, is thriving, even as she learns how to manage her own group of misfit stylists, but that doesn't stop her from swinging by the Gatsby Salon once in a while to stir up some drama. Alexa still holds a grudge against Gayle after last season's larger-than-life blow-up, and when she finds out about Gatsby's new on-location service infringing upon The Glam Fairy's territory, Alexa's resentment towards her business competitor reaches epic proportions. It doesn't look like Alexa and Gayle will be Facebook friends any time soon.
