ETA - Not sure I care for this whole northern/southern talk. It never gets us anywhere good. (And this is from a Ma$$hole who lives in the deep south, so I've heard my share of both accents.) If they hadn't told us JP is from NY, I never would've guessed it. His accent is barely discernible. His mother definitely has a much stronger accent. I hope those who can't stomach it will just fast-forward his segment on Mon b/c I'm not sure I'll be able to bite my tongue if it comes to any comments about JP's heritage.
