Considering Teresa Giudice's recent endorsement of Trump, I thought I'd look into which candidates the housewives are supporting. I used opensecrets.org and only included recent campaign contributions.
Teresa Giudice may have endorsed Trump, but there's no record of her or Joe making any financial contributions to him or anyone else. Also, as a felon, she cannot vote!
Dorinda Medley is a long time supporter of Hillary since 2006. Her most recent contribution is $2700 to Hillary's presidential campaign.
I don't have any contributions from Yolanda Foster, but her ex David gave $2700 to Hillary and, interestingly, $2600 to Clay Aiken's 2014 failed congressional campaign.
Erika Girardi has made over a hundred contributions to various democratic campaigns and PACs, but her most recent contribution is a shocker: $2700 to Jeb Bush last July. Just the month before she had donated $5000 to Senator Leahy's PAC to reelect 7 democratic senators (including Chuck Schumer) and in March she donated another $5000 to Barbara Boxer's super PAC to elect 100+ democratic senators. Not sure what prompted her change because her husband has also made a number of contributions to democratic campaigns, though I don't see a recent contribution from him. Jeb? Really? Him?
Basically, not many of the housewives have a record of making political contributions and the few that have haven't made too many in the past couple of years ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
In the 1990s, there was J-pop girl group SPEED. With their youngest being 12 at the time of their debut, these four girls surprised audiences with their decidedly mature image and sold over 20 million albums within 3 years, making them one of Asia's biggest girl groups at one point. Their original run lasted from 1996-2000, and while they have reunited since, they are not at the levels of their former glory. One of the members, Eriko Imai (32), has recently announced her intentions to run for Japanese parliament under the Liberal Democratic Party. Her key issues are disability advocacy due to her experience as mother of a deaf son and American military presence in Okinawa as she, like her other former band members, is from Okinawa. The Liberal Democratic Party hopes that she will invigorate young voters as well.
"According to Billboard, guitarist Tom Dumont, bassist Tony Kanal, and drummer Adrian Young have teamed up with AFI frontman Davey Havok. They’ve already recorded an album together, which they’re currently shopping to various record labels."
"We just have to write the stories and make them, encourage it and get behind it. You've got to get into drama schools and schools, find people who want to do this work and give them the opportunity to do it, that's more likely to get that opportunity here really – and make the stories."
