Teresa Giudice and her daughters have revealed their new collaboration with Shein, but the announcement isn’t going over so well with some of their fans.
The reality star, who allegedly tried to get out of a traffic ticket by offering a police officer a ‘family business card,’ made the announcement with the company on social media on Tuesday.
‘We are SO excited to finally announce our partnership with @shein to curate the ultimate pre-holiday collection,’ the 51-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star wrote on social media next to a video.
‘All of the pieces are a reflection of us,’ she claimed, explaining there were ‘lots of glamorous, fun, and chic styles that are perfect for everyone!’
Hinting at their lingerie looks she wrote, ‘We even made sure to include comfy and luxe sleepwear for your next Girls Night In!’
New collaboration: Teresa Giudice, 51, and her daughters Gia, 22, Milania, 17, and Audriana, 14, revealed their new collaboration with Shein Tuesday. Teresa called the styles ‘the ultimate pre-holiday collection’
‘We worked so hard to make this special for you all, and we hope you LOVE LOVE LOVE it as much as we do! Thank you so much for supporting the Giudice Girls!’ she concluded.
Daughters Gia, 22, Milania, 17, and Audriana, 14, all shared the video on their social media pages as well.
Group looks included Teresa and her daughters modeling sexy monochromatic neutrals while standing by the stairway in their palatial mansion.
Another featured the ladies in black sheer holiday looks as Teresa and Gia toasted the scene with glasses of champagne.
Some viewers were concerned at what they considered the mature looks the young women were modeling.
‘Very beautiful ladies… but why do you feel you need to dress as a 30 something year when your a teenager and young adult?’ they asked.
‘So sad to see children have their childhood taken away from them by parents who are chasing a buck…’

Teresa displayed her toned form in a body hugging white midi dress with ruching and a faux wrap showcasing her toned legs.
The controversial fast fashion company has come under legal scrutiny in the US for some of its business practices which allegedly include copyright infringement.
In July, three designers in California filed a lawsuit, claiming they were ‘surprised’ and outraged’ to see their products ‘faithfully copied,’ on the Shein website, according to CBS News.
The company has also been accused of human rights abuses and poor worker conditions.
‘Well this fits,’ wrote one disappointed follower.
‘Teresa partnering with one of the most unethical brands in the world. You know what they say, Birds of a Feather. But, love, love, love…’
‘Is this one really selling out her daughters for money like Kris Demon Jenner?’ asked another.
Controversy: Some fans were disappointed with the Giudices’ collaboration with the fast fashion company which has been accused of stealing styles from other designers and human rights violations
Praise: Many fans praised the reality star for including her daughters in the collaboration. ‘Your daughters will be very strong women because of you,’ one wrote
‘This makes me never want to shop with Shein. 1. Because of child labor. 2. Because of them,’ stated an angry commenter.
The Shein x Giudice Girls items may appeal to shoppers as they come in a variety of sizes and most have a price point less than $25.
Many of the family’s followers were anxious to jump to their defense amid the negative comments.
‘You are literally the best mom ever, and your daughters will be very strong women because of you. Congrats, beautiful soul.’
