One of my local radio talk shows talked about it all morning, it must have been a hoot!

I just watched this tonight after DVR-ing it! The reference to QVC was great! DD asked me if that was what QVC looked like back then. IDK, because I didn't start watching until 2006!

 

I love how they tie the real characters in with the actors who portray them. Tonight was great during the Eagles segment - the REAL JTP mixed in with the actors - just great! It was so much fun seeing the real Barry, the real Naked Rob, and the real Geoff - one of the best ophthamologists in Philadelphia, the real Matt, and the real Andy -- all cute guys! 

 

DD said they had to do a tribute to the Superbowl since they talk about the Eagles on the show all of the time! 

 

I remember in the first season when the JTP were at the local hangout and they mentioned Bradley Cooper, also from that area. In an interview he once said he came home to QVC bags by the garage door every day! His mom was a big QVC shopper - maybe she still is!  Smiley Happy

I love this show and the segments at the end were fantastic with the real JTP and the Real Beverly Goldberg and the Jacket!

@QVCkitty1 I saw it.  I love that show!  I've read all about it (the real people, etc).

 

Actually, the woman who plays Beverly is very outspoken about how much she HATES that wig!  Ha!  She's a stand-up comedian and is very funny in her act.

 

I like watching it because it brings back memories of when I was raising my daughters.

I love this show and since I live in Philly I like the references to local places. I have a questions does anyone know what JTP stands for? Have they ever said?

Jenkintown Posse-I'm guessing that's the name of the town that they live in?

The episode that made me laugh the most was when the family took Erica out to Beefsteak Charlies for her birthday and brought her boyfriend along.

 

I was crying because I was laughing so hard. Truth be known, I was able to relate to some of the things that happened. Not that I'd ever pull those stunts, but I know we would have loved to if we had the nerve.

 

It really cracked me up Woman LOL
