Tila Tequila

I'm Turning Into a Jew!!

1/13/2012 4:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tila Tequila is a jew?
Tila Tequila
is converting to Judaism ... seriously ... and for once, she swears she's not just after some cheap publicity.

TMZ has learned Tequila has been taking classes at a NY temple to begin the conversion process ... and even skipped Christmas this year to focus on change.

We spoke with the former MTV reality star about the situation and she explained, "As time passed, I started to become more and more fascinated with Kabbalah, the culture, and the way of life of the reform Judaism religion."

And even though she starred in a sex tape, Tequila says ... "I feel Orthodox is a little hardcore for me at this stage."

Tila adds, "I just feel like the Jewish people have such a beautiful way about them, and I can't wait to officially be Jewish! Shabbat Shalom."

Well, maybe she is growing up and maturing. So good for her if she wants to pursue something spiritual that she admires. People took advantage of her cheap and sleazy side, so now they are seeing her deeper and more sensitive side. Everything is not as simple as a TV personality.

Ok sure, but how many times will she pretend to be pregnant this year, or how many times will she pretend to carry her "brother's" baby for him and his wife? How many times is she going to sign papers to adopt a child?
There is a reason she hasn't been in the news lately - because everyone is over here.

Changing religions only deepens the duplicity of them.

Did this porn star whore tell you she has near nude pics of herself on her website and she's getting ready to start an adult website this month? Tila is making a mockery of this religion to get media attention.

She thinks religion is like trying on a new pair of designer shoes. It is not a trend.

Cue...manic episode #25 .....starring Tia Tequila.

Tia, Jon Gosselin trying it on as a trend did not pan out either. Announcing it like Jon Gosselin did, is just you seeking attention. Jon Gosselin said he wanted to become Jewish too, he bought the special bread, ate it, did interviews with the attention seeking Rabbi, and made a fool out of himself thinking he could treat the Jewish religion like the latest fashion trend.

You don't try God on, then take Him off, you either have God in your heart always, or you don't. God is not a trend or an organized religion.

I cry for the Jewish people. Haven't they been through enough without this person using their faith to get attention?

I find it hard to believe that anyone walking this earth can find this piece of leather attractive and or interesting. She should never be mentioned in any article, ever. Done so should be met with a swift firing and a 100k fine.

The only reason woman who aren't getting married to a Jewish man and wants to be Jewish is to get a wealthy man. Don't fool yourself, she isn't doing it for any other reason...
