The hits just keep coming for convicted felon, Teresa Giudice.

A mere three weeks after being sentenced to 15 months in prison, a new report claims, the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star has lost a lucrative endorsement deal for her new “Fabulicious Gelato” bars. The report suggests that a convicted felon is not a good fit for the company’s brand and they’ve ended their deal with Giudice.

A source told Radar Online:

“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. 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 fallen reality star and her husband, Joe Giudice, were both sentenced to federal prison on numerous counts of fraud, after pleading guilty in March to defrauding lenders of more than $4.6 million.

Unfortunately for Teresa her business endorsements are jumping ship in droves. Companies don’t want their brand associated with a convict and future jailbird. 

“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 revenue loss due to their association with the Giudice name. Teresa’s other businesses are suffering as well. According to the Nielsen BookScan, Teresa’s recent book release “Fabulicious! On The Grill” has sold only 120 copies from January 2014 to current. Which is huge decline from May 2013 through December 2013 when it sold 5,920 copies. Her other books are suffering as well, “Fabulicious! Fast & Fit” previously sold over 1,000 copies monthly up until January 2014. Since Jan 2014 it has only sold 125 copies resulting in an 88% reduction. Ouch!

This news comes at a bad time. The couple owes the court $232,ooo in restitution fees and their bankruptcy case has been rejected by the Bankruptcy courts. That means their debt will NOT be ELIMINATED.  The couple will be once again responsible for their $13.4 million dollar debt once the case is completely finalized.

    T, if you take no other advice in your entire life, never eat a chocolate Popsicle in a white dress. Those things melt, girl, and dry cleaning is expensive!

    • nan/4

      LOL!

  • WestCoastFeed

    She’s not even making any money on her books any more. What are they living on? Do they still have Bravo dollars coming in?

    • Shy-ra

      How will they pay back 13 Million!?!?! She needs to start selling some of her tacky clothes, furniture – who the hell would want to buy though? LOL

      • nan/4

        I have dibs on the purple persian lamb coat!!! I jest, but I’m sure that lots of people would be lining up to buy her designer clothing, shoes and handbags! Oh, and her “costume” ahem….jewelry too! 😉

        • I think there’s a line for that rug….ooops I mean coat. LOLOL!

        • Shy-ra

          Yes, I know the purple coat you speak of -bet it would cost too much even second-hand, lol!

      • They need to be forced to go live in section 8 housing and their assets/bank acct’s freezed. This makes no sense how she can go house hunting for a million dollar home in her situation.

        • Shy-ra

          In all seriousness, if family can’t take them in – how will they even be able to find a new home? They won’t be able to rent anything decent OR obtain a mortgage with their credit in the toilet- Section 8 might be looking like the only option for them

          • WestCoastFeed

            They could sublet Melissa and Joey’s place when they move back to their mansion.

          • Too many beavers crawling in the walls. LOLOL!

          • WestCoastFeed

            Kai took them with him to his new rental squat.

          • They’ll probably put a house in a business name under an LLC.

          • Shy-ra

            That confuses me – they can just have a clean slate of credit by using a LLC? How can they even qualify after the felonies they’ve been convicted of?

          • Pretty much. As long as their business credit is ok.

  • SDC

    Totally OT: Did anyone see that Dina isn’t coming back next season? She’s running away like the coward she is because she doesn’t want Jacqueline to expose who she really is. Pathetic.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Thanks for the news. Not a surprise. And, good, that has to mean that Jac is coming back, doesn’t it?

      • SDC

        Jacqueline definitely confirmed she’ll be back next season. I hope it’s full time.

    • Hi SDC. Dina’s tweet is vague. She doesn’t really confirm she won’t be back. She just says she has no desire. I think she did that to get her name in the press.

      • WestCoastFeed

        It was just that tweet about her soul couldn’t take being around horrible people. I thought she was referring to Jim.

        • SDC

          It’s funny that she said that she couldn’t be around horrible people considering she lives with herself.

          • Right. All she has to do is look in the mirror. LOL!

          • SDC

            I like Melissa and you know for years she’s been called horsey face? Well, Dina is donkey face. Now we’ve got a horse and an ass. Eee-haaawww!

          • HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

        • Oh yes….I should have known…Dina has a major hard on for Jim. I would think being around another horrible soul would make Dina feel right at home. Eh!

          • SDC

            LOL Jim is sexy though. I saw a picture of him without his shirt and I almost bought a ticket to New Jersey to hunt him down lol.

          • O M G!!!! Giiiiiirl be careful uttering that sentiment. j/k LOLOL!!!!!

          • SDC

            haha I don’t care. I’ll let Amber watch. We’ll need a camera person anyway lol. j/k….not lol

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            You know they say people usually dislike in others the things they recognize in themselves – that’s Dina’s problem with Jim.

          • Uh huh….yes ma’am! Jim is bigger bitch than she is and she can’t handle it.

      • SDC

        I hope she’s back next season because I want to see the look on her face when Jacqueline exposes who she really is to the world…well, at least to America lol.

        • She’ll be back unless Bravo doesn’t extend her an invite. She desperately needs the money.

          • SDC

            I was just going to say that. She’s totally boring but she knows if she gets asked back she’s coming because bitch ain’t getting no alimony. She’s leaving the marriage the same way she entered it: broke!

      • Babson_Chick

        Oh the drama she’s trying to create!! (tired of the boring zen crappola)

    • italiano bambino

      Oh the zen is a famewhore like tre and the rest. She’s just trying to make noise

      • SDC

        Yup, I agree. Bravo should dump her ass just like her husband did.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      I think Dina thought that the viewers would be so happy to have her back and would all rise up in arms against Jac. She really got that wrong.

      • Babson_Chick

        Dina who????

    • She Stinks!

      Its all a negotiating ploy to get Bravo to pay her more. She needs the cash. That husband of hers dumped her and she can only skim so much from that charity.

  • Shy-ra

    Is that her hand or a MAN’s hand on the counter? LOL Also, looks like she was in a bad mood that day, what a contrived looking smile. Miserable woman

  • MorningYawn

    Nice to see Gabriella in the pic! She has a pretty smile!

    • I was thinking the same thing. She’s the sweetest out of all the girls.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      I recall Teresa saying that Gabriella hated the cameras and attention. She seems like a very grounded sweet girl.

  • WestCoastFeed

    If it was the Talenti Gelato company, I have tried the Sea Salt Caramel bars. Yummy, but pricey.

    • Jennymckitty

      It has to be. The exact same names for the flavors and the packaging is almost identical. My question is, when did they come up with this deal? It couldn’t take that long to repackage an already existing product. And Tre had accepted the plea deal in March. At that point, all she was doing was awaiting sentencing. She was an admitted felon. It just galls me that people would think after the charges, after the plea, that getting into business with her was OK. The line they weren’t willing to cross was her actually going to prison. Whether she was on probation, house arrest or prison, she would have pled guilty to the same crimes.

  • Trippinhhard

    If that is not one fake pose Teresa is doing..
    Her daughter is cute, she’s the quiet one…

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      A CGI would look more natural than Teresa. She looks like a cardboard cutout.

  • italiano bambino

    Start packing tre noone gives a shit anymore about a crap you wanna sell

    • YEP! It’s over…DONE…finito…FINISH #ByeFelicia

      • Marsbars09

        LOL!

  • She Stinks!

    Good. She deserves everything she gets and more.

    She was just lending her brand to this, I saw these same exact bars under a different brand name.

  • September24

    Jail-ato bars.

  • Pinky Pie

    In that photo, it looks like the daughter is giving her mother the ice cream. Doesn’t that seem odd? If mommy is a good girl her daughter will treat her with an ice cream. Typical of Teresa’s personality. It is all about Teresa. She ruined 4 lives.

  • Some funny shit *refresh to see tweet*

    • Marsbars09

      Sad man. He has nothing else better to do with his time.

    • She Stinks!

      lol this guy! Bet its just a collage of pics of him and her.

    • Babson_Chick

      I thought he went into a period of mourning – guess it’s over.

  • MorningYawn

    OT: ID channel friends, lr Jenda is in and has 2 cases tonight! Holla!

    • Jennymckitty

      You can win a walk on role. Details on ID.

      • MorningYawn

        Oh my! I missed that!

        • Jennymckitty

          Joe is mine, hands off.

  • TartLemon

    Teresa does not get it. Staying in the spotlight like this loses support by the second. She’s gone over the edge of garnering any fans or respect.

    I have absolutely no idea why the PR department and executive board at BRAVO is so enthralled with Teresa. Is BRAVO is such disarray they are completely disconnected from the public’s opinion?

  • TartLemon

    Something just occurred to me……

    Teresa is basically running roughshod over BRAVO, has them glamorizing her FELONIOUS behavior and paying her very well to cover her ass. Therefore, why wouldn’t she also assume she has some power over the Court’s decisions? Teresa is completely shocked that she’s being held accountable. BRAVO doesn’t why should the COURT?

    The viewers don’t want her there. Who are the idiots at BRAVO who don’t get this?

  • RonnieIsBack

    Go to Jail…do not collect $200…or endorsements…

  • TartLemon

    Gabriella Giudice is a pretty little girl. Is she adopted?

  • Pinky Pie

    Headline should read: Teresa finally gets to exploit Gabriella. The one that is so shy she doesn’t like having her picture taken, the pretty one, the Well behaved smart one, the one that doesn’t look like her ugly mother. Yes, that one.

  • Babson_Chick

    You would think that The Felon would know how to pose by now – jeeze!! Sweet pic of Gab (it’s probably a good thing she hid out most of the time)
