’Swamp Peo­ple’ re­al­ity stars to ap­pear at Stonecrest mall

The Covington News - - At Play - Spe­cial to The News

You can learn a bit about al­li­ga­tor hunt­ing and the hard life of the back woods at noon on July 23 when R.J. and Jay Paul Mo­linere from the His­tory Chan­nel se­ries “Swamp Peo­ple” make an ap­pear­ance at the Mall at Stonecrest.

R.J. Mo­linere and his son, Jay Paul, are from Houma, La. They’re also mem­bers of Houma Nation, a North Amer­i­can tribe in south­ern Louisiana in which al­li­ga­tor hunt­ing is a fo­cal point of the cul­ture, ac­cord­ing to a re­lease from Stonecrest.

R.J. hunts and fishes for other game on his fam­ily’s 500 acres near Grand Blois, La., and also does some shrimp­ing. He serves as an el­der in the Houma Nation and is a four-time U.S. arm wrestling cham­pion.

Jay Paul, the son, is a box­ing and mixed mar­tial arts com­peti­tor who won the Gulf Coast Box­ing Cham­pi­onship in 2008, the Louisiana Golden Gloves Divi­sion Cham­pi­onship in 2009, and the Arnold Sports Fes­ti­val Box­ing event in 2010 in his 152-pound weight class.

A pur­chase is re­quired to meet the Mo­lineres. The mall is at 2929 Turner Hill Road in Litho­nia.
