A female of Jewish decent who tends to be described by society as being highly spoiled, whinny, ungrateful, high maintenance, and nag constantly. They come from environments that does not stipulate them doing for themselves they depend on a man to take care of them. They tend to go for the most successful man who makes lots of money because that's what they expect to have in life many of them don't work real jobs and many have never known what it's like to earn their own money. They tend to have a lot of clothes, access to an unlimited supply of money, and to expensive luxury cars that most common people can't afford to buy. They tend to look down on those who are working everyday jobs and careers. They think people like them, but in reality they're in a class by themselves because they're not able to make friends who'll stick around when they get sick and tired of their stuck on themselves mentality.
Melissa looks down on everything and ridicules the efforts of people who work hard and acts like she's better than them and has never had to work for what she wants. She is a real Jewish American Princess.

jewish American Princess or JAP (not to be confused with the ethnic slur directed towards people of Japanese nationality) can be taken and meant as an ethno-religious and/or sexist slur used to refer to Jewish women with privileged backgrounds.

The word is intended to promote a stereotype about young women who have been spoiled by material wealth and overbearing parenting to the point that they are self-absorbed, high-maintenance, materialistic, and snobby. Since the slur reflects a phenomenon that is not limited to Jewish families, it has also been extended to other ethnic groups.

As with all stereotypes, this one is often the basis for a variety of jokes and contrived but humorous scenarios. Its factual basis seems to stem from the rapid rise to affluence of Jewish families that started out in tenements of New York City, moved to residential, urban neighborhoods in the city, and then to suburbs on Long Island, northern New Jersey, Philadelphia and elsewhere in the United States. The notion is that many who are raised in the affluent environments have lost any sense of continuity with their hardworking parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents.

The slur is usually considered offensive both for its sexist and ethnic implications, however, some people self-identify themselves as Jewish American Princesses. Some teenagers use the phrase to describe what clique they belong to, just like a scene kid or goth, or the style and brands of clothing that they wear.

-In 1980, Goldie Hawn portrayed Judy Benjamin in Private Benjamin. In the film, a spoiled rich girl joins the army after her marriage fails, finds herself in a more difficult situation than she ever expected, and ultimately rises to the occasion.
