Melissa Gorga’s oldest sister Kim Pirrella (left) will be returning to St. Luke’s Theatre for a double encore of theÂ off-Broadway hitsÂ My Big Gay Italian WeddingÂ andÂ My Big Gay Italian Funeral.Â KimÂ will reprise her role in both productions asÂ Lucia Fuccio, who is described as a “lipstick lesbian diva.” In an interview with The Examiner, Kim is speaking out about her experience acting and also shares her opinions about The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
â€œFirst and foremost they’re laugh out loud funny,” Kim says of the plays. “They show off real life and heartfelt family issues, and the third [they] highlight a typical Italian family.”
When asked if she would ever like to be part of the RHONJ cast, Kim explains, â€œIf you would have asked me this question two years ago I probably would have said yes, but that would be because I didn’t know any better. Now that I’ve seen the lengths at which people will go to or should I say have to go to just to be relevant on those shows, I say not a chance in hell would I subject myself, my children or my marriage to being a cast member on that show. I believe in supporting, encouraging and pushing up other women, not competing with and tearing them down.”
