Linda Zazzali with Daughters Eva and Valentina Zazzali Step to the Stage on GingerNewYork in NYC

Mar 25, 2017 Mark

Press Release ( - NEW YORK - Mar 25, 2017 - Linda Zazzali: “The Real Hip Mom” is a parenting expert and blogger on travel, fashion, makeup, cooking and mastering the toughest job known to man “Motherhood”.  She should know, she’s a mom of eight children, ages 4-22, and has traveled with them from Disney to Italy!

Her dad was Mario Perillo, founder and CEO of Perillo Tours, who passed away in 2003.  He and his wife, Olga, raised a great, traditional Italian family in Pearl River, NY and Saddle River, NJ, where Linda Zazzali still lives “Italian style” which in her family means living on the same block and across the street from her brother Steve and sister, Christine.  Linda was the youngest of four siblings, with her brother Mark passing away in 2015.

Typically, when people meet Linda for the first time, they get into a conversation about Linda’s father or brother’s TV spots, Italy, food, clothes, dance schedules, the parking lot, her parking spot, travel or a sundry of other interesting topics parents talk about, but as soon as someone asks “how many kids do you have”,  Linda says, “when I say eight, you can literally feel the earth cease its rotation. Once the movement returns to their appendages and they have been adequately resuscitated, they say the same thing, every time, “YOU have eight kids???”.

Twenty years later, she started her blog, “The Real Hip Mom”, because she believes parents beat themselves up, every day, unnecessarily, trying to conform with someone else’s idea of who our child should be.  “Not that our experts, like our doctors, our parents our teachers don’t know what they are doing, but keep in mind you are raising a human being, and to take your time with what they should be learning and what they will become.”

Her daughters, Eva and Valentina are singers and dancers, most recently performing at Carnegie Hall, Feinstein’s/54 Below, and Papermill Playhouse. The upcoming production of “Bye Bye Birdie”, Valentina Zazzalii will play the role of Rosie and Linda will be Directing the show at Our Lady of Mercy in Park Ridge, NJ.

Linda Zazzali says, “I want to tackle every day mom issues, and allow moms to ask other moms their thoughts, or vent when they think they made a parental boo-boo, and we all do. I also want moms to make the most of themselves every day, whatever your style is, through clothes, make up, exercise, and cooking. Remember that feeling good about yourself, no matter what you are doing in a 24 hour period, has great results.

Please join Linda, “The Real Hip Mom” and her eight children, Devin, Brynn, Valentina, Federica, Eva, Albert Mario, Camilla, and Gianmarco, as they embark on the greatest travel adventure ever … life.

Linda Zazzali is available for interviews and appearances (Especially for Mother’s Day!)
