‘I’m From Latest Jersey’: Dr. Oz Showed Jersey Pride At 2019 Latest Jersey Hall Of Fame Awards


Three years ago, Latest Jersey’s glitterati gathered to toast the Garden State and honor 19 of its “most distinguished residents” as they were inducted into the Latest Jersey Hall of Fame.

One among the people getting that recognition was Martha Stewart. And she or he had one other achieved Latest Jersey celebrity to introduce her: Mehmet Oz, higher often known as Dr. Oz.

“She is funny, funny, funny, because she gets the joke. And that’s the necessary part about what she represents as a Latest Jerseyite, because Latest Jersey’s about that. It’s about resilience,” Oz said.

Oz also gave an interview on the event by which he played up his Latest Jersey ties, saying, “I’m from Latest Jersey. I appreciate all that our state offers, and we will take folks who made big coming from the state, you need to have a good time them.”

He then joked that he might get to be inducted someday:

Q: Who in the long run would you prefer to see be inducted into the Latest Jersey Hall of Fame for those who had to select a couple of people?

Oz: I really like athletes which might be from Latest Jersey, people forget how great our sports teams are. But I’m talking about folks who’ve done great. Great surgeons. [laughter]

Home-state pride is a number of fun, but touting his love of Latest Jersey just three years ago is slightly awkward now that Oz is running to be Pennsylvania’s next U.S. senator.

Oz’s campaign didn’t return a request for comment, but his “ties” to Pennsylvania have been constant fodder for attacks from his opponents, each within the GOP primary and now in the final election against Democrat John Fetterman, who remains to be recovering from a stroke he suffered in mid-May.

On Thursday, the Fetterman campaign continued to troll Oz on the difficulty, putting out a video by one other Latest Jersey celebrity ― Nicole Polizzi, higher often known as Snooki of “Jersey Shore” fame. Snooki chided Oz for leaving Latest Jersey to go to Pennsylvania to “search for a recent job.”

“I do know you’re away from home, and also you’re in a recent place, but Jersey won’t forget you. … And don’t worry, since you’ll be back home in Jersey soon. This is simply temporary,” she said within the Cameo video. (On Cameo, people will pay for video messages from celebrities.)

Oz’s campaign bio says he lives in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania. Oz jumped into the Pennsylvania Senate race in November 2021. He lived in northern Latest Jersey for 3 a long time and, in accordance with his campaign, moved to Pennsylvania in late 2020.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that public records show Oz didn’t buy a house in Pennsylvania until February 2022, but his campaign said he was living at his in-laws’ home ― which is within the state ― while his recent house was being renovated.

The paper also identified that within the three months leading as much as his campaign launch ― after he said he moved to the state ― greater than 20 social media posts “appeared to indicate him at his Cliffside Park home [in New Jersey], some with Latest York within the background, others showing the interiors of the home which were displayed in earlier video clips and magazine profiles.”

A campaign aide said on the time that Oz still filmed his TV show in Latest York City ― he has since stopped ― and often visited family living there.
