#TeenMom2 Star Chelsea Houska Under Investigation By The Feds Over Shady Business Deals!

Posted on Sep 19 2017 - 8:50am by Staff Writer

A Teen Mom is in hot water with the feds!

After reviewing Instagram posts by Chelsea Houska, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently sent a warning letter for not conspicuously disclosing her relationship to brands when promoting products through the MTV star’s social media accounts.

Chelsea’s, 26, letter questioned a post of her son — the caption read, “He’s quite the talker/yeller. Cute onesie from @lovedbyhannahandeli.”

The letter dated September 6, 2017 from the feds, states:

“Your post does not disclose whether you have a material connection with the marketer of Loved by Hannah and Eli brand clothing. Please provide a written response to this letter by September 30, 2017, advising the FTC staff of whether you have a material connection with the marketer of Loved By Hannah and Eli Clothing.”

This is an ongoing problem for the FTC and the Teen Mom 2 star. Back in April, Chelsea received another warning for endorsing the brand, “Love With Food,” but the reality star seems to be above the law and continues to break the rules.

The regulatory organization announced plans to enforce stricter rules about social media posting in the summer of 2016, after hundreds over celebs were identified as rule breakers.

    The FTC is going to have their hands full. Even average people can profit off of product endorsements. There are apps and programs that either give you products in exchange for a review or track purchases from social media mentions. There are tons of companies that use this as their primary source of advertising and thousands of people that profit in one way or another from it.

      How do you do that?

        There are apps you can download where you post photos on products you are using that has links to websites where others can buy thems. There are sites where you can sign up to be a tester and you get products in exchange for reviews. Some sites like Amazon have programs where you choose a product to promote and you get a small amount for everyone that purchases the product. It isn’t just celebs and bloggers that get free stuff. Companies are desperate for lots of good reviews on sites like Amazon.

    Not sure if this is a serious offense or not. But, I’ve always thought Chelsea was shady in her own right.

    Wait don’t all the reality stars and beyond do this???? If so, the FTC better bet busy

    Maybe she is “breaking the rules” BUT it isn’t committing murder or doing a financial collapse Ponzi scheme.

    I still think she is fake and irritating.
