As Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice gets set to serve her 15 month jail sentence, starting in January, she has a bunch of issues to deal with, from legal to personal, and of course, financial.
Having been found guilty and sentenced along with her husband Joe Giudice on fraud charges a few weeks ago, it is now being reported that Teresa has been well and truly dropped from her lucrative endorsement deal with Fabulicious Gelato bars after the company suddenly ended their association with the Giudice family.
An inside source told Radar Online in the past few days that the gelato bar company couldn’t rush quickly enough to get rid of the Terese Giudice deal.
“The gelato bar company told Teresa last week they wouldn’t be proceeding with doing any business with her. Grocery store owners said their customers didn’t want to buy anything associated with Teresa. There was absolutely zero interest in the gelato bars before Teresa was sentenced, and none since.”
Apparently, the company has already suffered a hit in revenue due to their known association with Giudice and on top of that, Teresa was allegedly a complete nightmare to work with, “The company decided to cut their losses and not waste any more time with Teresa. She was extremely rude and unprofessional to deal with,” the source added.
The lucrative deal would have come in very handy for Teresa Giudice, as she owes over $400,000 in restitution as well as $13 million relating to her bankruptcy.
Back on August 27, the trustee in the Giudice family’s infamous 2009 bankruptcy case filed the discharge papers, requesting to erase the couple’s $13,480,263.11 “debt.”
But the judge in the case denied the Giudices’ discharge.
There is no doubt that the next couple of years will be challenging ones for the Guidice’s. As they both look at serving out prison sentences as well as a future of financial ruin for their previous misdemeanors.
