EXCLUSIVE: Caroline Manzo And Teresa Giudice Accused Of Not Supporting Cancer Child Without Getting Appearance Fee; Teresa Responds!
Earlier today, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice were both accused of not supporting a young boy with cancer without getting an appearance fee. The NYDN reported that Prudential Reality’s Lyndhurst and Rutherford officers are hosting a Halloween party and will raise funds for Christopher DiMartino, who has been suffering from cancer since the age of 3 but can’t afford his chemotherapy.
From NY Daily News:
Salvatore Scirica, the real estate salesman hosting the dinner, thought to bring in “The Real Housewives” stars to attract more donors. After all, the DiMartinos had relied on Manzo’s family before: In 2009, they held a fundraiser at the Brownstone, the restaurant co-owned by Caroline’s husband, Albert, and featured on the Bravo show.
Scirica asked Metropolis Nights editor Chaunce Hayden to reach out to Manzo and Guidice. Both requests were ignored by the reality stars. “It was crickets,” Hayden told Confidenti@l. When he asked a mutual friend for an explanation, Hayden got the hard truth. “They don’t do anything anymore unless they are getting paid,” the mutual friend told Hayden. “End of story.”
A spokesperson for Caroline said she has never been contacted by these people while Teresa Giudice tells AllAboutTRH EXCLUSIVELY that she has has not been contacted about this specific event for Christopher DiMartino.
Teresa recently went to two events in Rhode Island for breast cancer and wasn’t paid an appearance fee. Teresa tells AllAboutTRH that she does many charities when she could and it’s all for free. Teresa says it’s important she can help out anyone in anyway that she can and she tries to go to every event or benefit that will help regardless of her busy schedule of parenting her 4 children and working on her business. Although she is busy, she would do anything to help and it has always been that way. Teresa says it’s “sad” that she would be accused of this when she hasn’t even been contacted.
