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."

She is doing all these things because she thinks it will get her rich. She isn't dumb. Jews are in media. It's a power tactic.

No one's talked about her for a long time, so she needed some publicity, even though she's denying it's for publicity. We all know that this is NOTHING but publicity.

TMZ this human piece of waste has tricked you once again. She is trying to drum up publicity for her new porn site, which is why she had a 3 minutes spot on NY Ink last night (though she claimed to her dumb fans that she was 'starring' in the episode).
If you did your homework you'd know that she was in NY this past summer for less than 3 weeks, and has been back in LA since late-August, early-September. How can she be taking Judaism classes in NY if she's 5000 miles a way?
Also, converting to Judaism isn't a given. You have to go through an often grueling process to even get a Rabbi interested in mentoring you. Tila would not be a likely candidate in the eyes of any Rabbi.
In addition, how can she be so committed to Judaism, when she just got another tattoo while in New York?
In addition, honoring the body as God gave it, is a fundamental tenet of Judaism, and Tila Tequila who just got another tattoo and is now exploiting her body, yet again on a porn site is certainly not honoring her body in any way a Rabbi would find serious to conversion.
She may be reading some books,but she will not go through the confirmation process.
Again, this is a big set up so you and Radar will advertise her porn site. She delights in the controversy a buy-sexual Jew can bring to her porn site.
Tila is a very sick woman and I thought you guys had figured that out and stopped reporting on her antics because it just goes to fuel her craziness. Maybe she needed money from the story to fund her porn domain.
BTW, parents be aware, Tila has allowed and encouraged teens into her porn site in the past. She was shut down because of it, but is currently grooming her underage fans once again. Google: qocap, GhostriderRadio and The Rotspot. All these sites have reported are Tila's devient and manipulative behavior, especially as it pertains to the minors she exploits.

An insult to Judaism!!!! A convert is never a real Jew anyway, so she has little credence!
