Kim Granatell -- better known as "Kim G." on the Bravo network's "Real Housewives of New Jersey," will volunteer at the the JCLGO information booth on Saturday, Aug. 28. The festival, part of LGBT Pride Week, is Saturday, Aug. 28, from noon to 8 p.m. at Exchange Place in Jersey City.

"I love gay people and gay people love me," said Granatell. "Over the years, some of my best friends have been gay. I support gay rights and equality for all."

The storyline of Season 2 of the show -- which was shot last year -- currently has Granatell at odds with one-time best buddy Danielle Staub. Granatell, who in one episode donned hot pants and climbed a stripper's pole with Staub, is also friends the Manzo clan that hates Staub.

The theme of this yearʼs festival is "Standing Strong: Equality for All."

A rally for full equality on the steps of Jersey City City Hall will proceed the festival.

The festival will feature a vendor market place, an entertainment line up showcasing LGBT talent from around the region and a dance party at Exchange Place. In previous years attendance at the annual LGBT Pride festival has been more than 10,000.

"We are honored to have Kim Granatell volunteer her time for our festival. It is wonderful to have caring individuals like Kim G come forward to support us and it is because of people like Kim G that the festival continues to grow and that we are able to advance towards full equality," JCLGO co-founder and current Co-Chairperson Paul Mendoza said.

Mendoza further added "we are thankful for the support of all of our straight allies from housewives to elected officials who help make our festival possible."


  1. Mrs. Grannatell:
    Your 15 minutes of fame are shortly coming to an close.
    As a Mother of a Gay Son residing in Franklin Lakes how dare you attempt to use the Gay Community to get additional face time in the Media.
    You said nothing when that Animal called Caroline Son a faggot.
    I pray your children and the Grannatel Family may some day forgive you for trashing a Family
    that has done many wonderful things for our community (Grannatel Stadium) Don Bosco High School. Have you no pride speaking of a man's
    cock on National T.V.
    We need not see your closet and your 400 pairs of shoes on your interviews with Tom Murro Celebrity Magnet. Did you pay him in cash or sex or both to deluge us with those ridiculous
    interviews. I wish you could take your Lover Mr. Murro with you and his wife and daughters in that Black Bentley and Move to the City to be closer to those Red Carpet Events that you so seek to attend. You and Mr. Murro have made our wonderful community a laughing stock of America. I wish you no ill will but urge Mr. Grannatell to seek custody of Daughter before she suffers more the painful taunts that she is presently enduring.

  2. Neighbor of Kim GrannatellAugust 30, 2010 at 10:52 AM

    I have never posted anything in my 52 years of like, but i must.
    i have been a neighbor of yours for many years
    I can not believe this beautiful Mother of 3 children could be so crass as to boast of torrid love affair with a married resident with young daughters.
    You are becoming the pariah of our wonderful community by your disgusting behavior in attempting to become a regular on that program
    I see you will be on again with Mr. Murro on News 12 on the 31st. I will make sure i miss it
    so will many of your wonderful neighbors.
    Mr. Murro Celebrity Magnet you must be quite husband and father to carry carry on a sexual
    relationship and accept expensive vehicles and gifts from this crass pathetic women.
    I myself and my family will shun your website and may all decent married people do the same
    I may never post another message in my life
    but i feel better now that i have.
    What you and your paramour did to the reputation of our wonderful community is unconscionable.
