On Thursday, March 12, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member documented a 10:00 p.m. trip to her local ShopRite with at least two of her children. It seems the outing was successful, as Jennifer showed the checkout counter loaded with everything from zucchini noodles to fruit to Harvest Snaps Crisps.
"Your mother just spend $418 on food," the cashier told Jennifer's 12-year-old daughter, Gabriella, whose jaw dropped in response. To that, Jennifer justified: "We're stocking up!"
"Oh my god. It is a panic, people," she continued, as she panned the camera around showing long lines throughout the store. "The line is around to the milk department. Mayhem, folks."
She added: "Corona is taking over."
Earlier this week, Jennifer shared that she was keeping her kids housebound amid the global health crisis. Alongside a video of the children running all around the inside of the home, which boasts nine bedrooms and 16 bathrooms, Jennifer wrote: "Staying in to avoid corona virus.”
Jennifer isn't the only Bravo personality rushing to buy in bulk amid the health crisis. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Alexis Bellino was stunned by the lengthy lines during a recent trip to Costco as she loaded her cart with cereal, ketchup, Ziploc bags, and paper napkins. However, she wasn't able to snag paper towels and toilet paper before they sold out. "[Pandemonium] is happening here [at Costco] this morning!" she captioned the post. "Definitely more than 250 people here....second trip in a week, we are stocked!"
Meanwhile, Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor and Southern Charm matriarch Patricia Altschul had a slightly different idea when it came to buying necessities. Jax (who recently shared that his home with Brittany Cartwright now looks like a Costco due to their bulk buying), told his followers that he loaded up on Cadbury eggs. Patricia, for her part, grabbed multiple bottles of champagne to bring home on a recent grocery story trip, explaining that she was "getting prepared in case the corona virus hits."
