I'm not sure if you've heard – but Joe and Teresa Giudice were indicted on 39 counts of fraud the end of July.  News to you, you say?  I thought so! 

Real Housewives of New Jersey fans immediately began to speculate over whether or not Teresa's massive empire would crumble. Love her or hate her, you cannot deny that she's done well for herself where endorsed brands are concerned, with cookbooks, Fabellini, Milania Hair Care, and more.

A distributor for Fabellini barely blinked an eye. They were going to stand by Teresa despite her legal woes, boldly predicting, "She's gonna be a winner."

However, the CEO of Youthful8, which owns the Milania Hair Care brand, wasn't as confident about Teresa's future role in the company, saying "whether she is the right person to continue to endorse the brand" will be determined at a later date. Today is that day – read on for the full press release.


Jerel James Sabella, Owner and CEO of Youthful8, shared: 

"Teresa Giudice and I met last week in New York to discuss her future with Youthful8 – The Milania Collection hair care brand. Obviously, Teresa has been in the headlines over the past few weeks due to legal issues and I wanted to allow her some time to assess the situation and see how these issues could, or would, affect her role with the company before making any decisions.

We understand the serious nature of the charges but we will leave it to the US court system to decide the outcome based on facts and not speculation or tabloid reports.  We are in the professional hair care business and Teresa  – during her time with us –  has professionally supported all initiative in the past. Unless the situation changes, Teresa will continue to work with us as a spokesperson for Youthful8 – The Milania Collection.

Youthful8 – The Milania Collection has been met with great success since its launch earlier this year. Most recently, it was named 'Best Specialty Haircare' at the Beauty Buster 2013 Awards."
