Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has been all over the media this past week regarding 39 counts of fraud charges against her and things seem to be getting worse. In fact Teresa may hear even worse news because her business partner is now saying he may fire her. Jerel James Sabella is the owner and CEO of Youthful8, The Milania Collection in which Teresa endorses.
He tells Radar that he was shocked by the claims against Teresa saying, “This has been a surprising and shocking week for us. I will be meeting with Teresa within the next few days to better understand the impact the pending trial will have on her, her family and specifically our brand. Based on that discussion, we will determine the next steps for The Milania Collection and whether she is the right person to continue to endorse the brand.”
He does however mention that the product line has had great success since launching earlier this year. Regardless of his decision he adds that he wishes Teresa and her family the very best.
As for the distributor for Teresa’s Fabellini Wine, they say that they will not be dropping Teresa adding, “She’s gonna be a winner.”
I personally think it’s very unprofessional that Teresa’s business partner is speaking to media outlets about whether he is going to fire her or not instead of speaking to her. Such a coward move. I think it would be very stupid of Jerel to fire Teresa because he himself admits that they have had a lot of success and it’s pretty clear that Teresa fans are still sticking with her!
