Carmella On How She Came Up With Her Current Character


During an interview with The Wrap, Carmella discussed her gimmick being the byproduct of her roots. Here’s what she had to say:

When I was first coming up with this Carmella character, I wanted her to be from Boston. However, Sasha Banks was from Boston, so we had to come up with something else. So [the Princess of Staten Island] was what we came up with. From that point on I was religiously watching ‘Mob Wives’ and ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey.’ Man, I just did so much character research — ‘The Sopranos,’ everything.

It’s funny, the Impractical Jokers, Sal and [Brian ‘Q’ Quinn] and them, they’re from Staten Island, obviously. And they’re like ‘Oh my gosh, you do that so good!’ And that makes me feel good. I’m like cool, I can convince people from Staten Island that I’m from Staten Island.
