Good (Hung-Over) Times With Jessimae Peluso
Jessimae Peluso is one of the gorgeous, funny ladies of MTV's Girl Code. She and fellow cast mate Carly Aquilino will be hitting up the Irvine Improv this weekend (June 5th through 8th) to lay down the law while supplying some uproarious laughter to our hood. And while we might have caught her on an off day (and to be fair, we were having a shitty day too), she still totally didn't disappoint with the hilarity.
OC Weekly (Ali Lerman): OK I don't want to lie to you and apologies for being so unprofessional but, I'm soooo hung-over today.
Jessimae Peluso: Oh my god, me too. I worked last night but I'm still hung-over from two nights ago. I drank almost a whole bottle of tequila.
I somehow knew you'd understand but holy shit. That's a tequila bender!
Tequila is like 5-hour Energy for me. I've grown to really love it. I'm like a tequila connoisseur now.
Jesus H. No words. Let's start mild then and get into your love for John Stamos. What's up with that?
What's up with you not loving him? That is what I fucking want to know right now!
Hey, I'm down with Stamos! I just didn't want to step on your territory!
[Laughs.] I just have always loved him! I'm a sentimental person, I'm nostalgic, and I'm loyal so I've loved him since Full House. I want to put Fage yogurt all over him. You gotta have the real Greek yogurt for that and that is Fage. That's the real deal. I'm also on the Leonardo DiCaprio train right now. I know that everyone's been on it and I'm just getting on it now but it's OK. I'd let him get into my pantalones.
Ehhh Leo is alright but he's no Jesse and the Rippers....
No! But I want Leonardo DiCaprio to Jesse and the Rippers my pants off. [Laughs.]
Maybe you'll get the chance for that to go down because I saw you say on Twitter that you're moving to LA.
Yes I am! Actually all of my stuff is in transit right now. Yeah, I'm making the move because I've got a couple of big projects that I'll be working on and I'm very excited about it. I can't really be specific about the projects but, it's good and I think it'll be a life changing move. The show [Girl Code] changed my life and I like to take risks and challenge myself so that is what's going on in LA. La La Land. Yawnnnn...sorry I'm so tired. Matter of fact, you'd get drunk off my yawn right about now.
Wow. Sorry I'm boring you!
[Laughs.] Not at all! You and I are hot messes right now! It's like we're girlfriends on the phone like, "Yeah so, I wanna bang Leonardo DiCaprio."
Haha I have news for you, this is how I do every interview except I'm generally not still drunk from last night. You pegged it right though, I'm a hot mess right now.
[Laughs.] It's like, who works in the morning? You poor thing, it's so early for you and I'm just being a baby!
Yeah wait until you're on west coast time and then talk to me! Yuck. OK so I'm a big fan of Girl Code and I've learned a lot from it. What's the biggest lesson that you've learned?
I mean, hmmm...good question. I don't know if it's a lesson but probably just to be a good person to your good girlfriends. Friends really are the one group of people that will have your back when you go through hard times. Also, they hold a lot of your secrets so if you treat them wrong, you could get really thrown off course through social media.
