Forget cocktails or a nice cup of tea. Jaime Primak Sullivan thinks people can bond over coffee.
The star of Jersey Belle, Bravo’s Monday night fish out of water docuseries about an entertainment publicist (Sullivan) who moves to an affluent Alabama suburb after marrying the Southern man of her dreams, was in downtown Miami Saturday night for a party to launch Keurig 2.0. The brewing machine company invited the Garden State native to the launch party at Louis La Vie showroom because of her popular Facebook series called #cawfeetalk, which reaches over 700,000 people a week.
“It’s a video of me in the morning in my pajamas in my bedroom with no makeup, just talking about real stuff — career, family, life,” Sullivan explains of the digital platform. “A few weeks after it started, Keurig reached out to me and said, ‘We think you’re onto something.’”
The general theme of the videos is positivity and hope.

“The world is ready for kindness and social responsibility again,” said the self-professed former mean girl. “There’s a shift coming in human connection.”
No longer a bully, Sullivan says her opinions have changed toward fellow females, especially.
“I used to live in a world where I always felt like people were talking about me and my friends were hanging out without me,” she explained. “Women are supposed to be the nurturers, but instead we were constantly fighting and competing with one another. I had to teach myself to be nice and value women’s contributions. How sad is that?”
Being content in her own life — happily married with three small kids — helped with the attitude adjustment.
“Words and action will come back to you, and I got tired of that,” said the rep for Wayne Brady and Chris Klein. “I wanted to be authentic and genuinely, not passively aggressively, be happy for other people and not threatened. I believe now if one of us succeeds, we all succeed. It’s really about being kind.”

Nick Loeb may have been hurting something awful, but his ex Sofia Vergara didn’t administer any TLC this time. On Tuesday, the Onion Crunch entrepreneur posted an Instagram picture of himself on a gurney with an oxygen mask at an undisclosed facility. The caption read: “Getting ready for the first sciatic injection in history where they have to drill a hole through the side of my pelvis.” OK, ouch. Back in 2010, Loeb ended up in ICU after a car crash outside of L.A., and the Modern Family star was on hand to help with his recovery.
