Who Is Celebrity Big Brother 2017's Marissa Jade? Everything You Need To Know!
The Mob wife is set to spice things up.
Oh look. It's time for Celebrity Big Brother to invade literally every aspect of our lives and render us hermits until the entire series is over. In honour of this universal truth, we've taken it upon ourselves to gather up a short introduction to each of the housemates.
Enter Marissa Jade, the model turned actress turned reality TV star who is known for both her feisty personality and her ridiculous good looks. Maybe she's a complete unknown to you or maybe you regularly stalk her Instagram for bikini inspiration. Either way, she's set to become even more of a familiar sight in the coming weeks.
Who is she?
Marissa is a 32-year-old model who is probably best known for starring in US reality TV show Mob Wives. It's basically a grittier version of The Real Housewives that follows the wives and partners of jailbirds and ex-convicts. Marissa has been a recurring castmember on the show since the sixth series and she's already made *quite* an impact on viewers.
Where else do I recognise her from?
Not a fan of crime TV but still have an inkling you've spotted Marissa somewhere? It could be from her appearances on Gossip Girl and Law & Order. Or it could be that random but very cool feature in 2003 movie, Elf. Failing that, it might be the fact that she was the inspiration behind the main character in comic book series Destiny, Queen of Thieves.
Although, in all honesty, it could just be that you're one of the 88,000 people who receive her updates on Instagram.
How does her personal life look?
It's still assumed that Marissa is in a relationship with ex-convict, Oz. After completing his five-year sentence, Marissa was full of praise for how her boyfriend handled the situation: "Oz took his bid like a man. He kept his mouth shut and stayed loyal - that's what I love about him."
Marissa is also a mum to young son Jaiden, who she had from a previous relationship.
What can we expect from her in the house?
Judging by her history on Mob Wives, Marissa isn't one to sit back and let an argument pass her by. She regularly clashes with the other wives and girlfriends on the VH1 show and there's a good chance living in a high-pressured environment with a bunch of other celebs might cause tensions to erupt.
Celebrity Big Brother continues at 9pm on Channel 5
