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."

you have to be forty years old, married with a family, well-versed in Bible and Talmud, and so on
strictures which would prohibit women, non-Jews, and people under forty from learning

Hilarious! Is there ANYTHING this hoar won't do for publicity? Bisexual, Jew--what's next? Is she going to reject the Jews and become a member of al Quida?

TMZ, I find this picture highly offensive. It's an insult to Judaism, Photoshop and the human race in general.


As to Tila Nguyen (let's not besmirch the name of a beverage loved by millions any further): Three dozen chimpanzees should hurl their feces at her every time she shows her face in public.

Who IS this person? I've seen her name a lot, but the only thing I have ever seen about her is related to one drama or another. NEXT......

Saying Kabbalah is Judaism is like saying Mystics are Christians.
