Yet another star from Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey has been slapped with a class-action lawsuit.
Season 6 new-comer, Teresa Aprea, owns Angelo’s of Mulberry Street in Manhattan with her husband. The Wrap reports the two have been sued by former employees for unpaid wages and requiring their employees to pay for uniform cleanings, even though the owners would never actually have them cleaned. Also, one employee claims that even if one worked for ten hours, they were never paid for over seven hours.
According to TMZ, each worker is requiring that the Aprea’s pay a total of $2,500 per employee.
The situation is especially ironic considering Aprea’s comment towards co-star Teresa Giudice, who’s currently serving a sentence for fraud, when she claimed “karma’s a bitch” regarding Giudice’s charges. Rumors surfaced earlier this week that Giudice will be filing for divorce from her husband once she’s a free woman.
Aprea appeared on RHONJ last season with her twin sister, Nicole Napolitano. The two were brought on to replace former cast members Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita.
