Jersey Belle

14671326-mmmain

Birmingham resident Jaime Primak Sullivan will be starring in her own Bravo TV series this Summer!  The show will be called Jersey Belle, and here is the description from Bravo.

A classic fish-out-of-water tale, this docu-series follows outspoken New Jersey native and Hollywood publicist, Jaime Primak Sullivan, as she navigates life in the upscale southern suburb of Mountain Brook, Alabama.  Jaime’s life was turned upside down after she married the town’s ‘most eligible’ bachelor.  Despite the help of her girlfriends, who are determined to sculpt Jaime into a southern darling, Jaime can’t help but speak her mind — often to hilarious results.  Can Jaime keep her Jersey cool in the Deep South, or will her southern-bred BFFs finally turn her into a true-blue Alabama belle?

Jaime runs Bridge & Tunnel Entertainment, and the show will premiere on Bravo later this Summer!  Learn more at: http://www.bravotv.com/blogs/the-dish/bravo-announces-15-new-and-16-returning-shows
