Earlier this week on Twitter, there was some confusion about whose hair care line Alexis Bellino was promoting. The former Real Housewives of Orange County star had taken to her Instagram account on Sunday morning, thanking Teresa Giudice for a set of gifts from her Milania Hair Care line including a t-shirt and several products. Then, on Monday, Alexis surfaced on Instagram again to thank Leyla Milani-Khoshbin who gifted her a hair straightener from her Milani Hair line.
With all of the Milania, Milani talk, fans got a bit confused and when Alexis deleted the photo of the Milania Hair Care products sent by Teresa, some assumed that Alexis had accidentally thanked the wrong person. However, that doesn’t appear to have been the case. In a later tweet, Alexis explained, “Leyla Khoshbin gifted me also!!!! She is my good friend and I love her products!!!”
Still, the brands’ similar names are causing tons of confusion in the world of hair care, leading Leyla to claim that Teresa and those behind Milania Hair Care have infringed on her registered trademark.
“Teresa Guidice & her partner(s) are infringing on our registered trademark, ‘Milani Hair,’” Leyla reveals to Hollywoodite in an exclusive statement. “Since we are both in the hair care category, she is causing confusing in the market with her ‘Milania Hair Care’ line. She will be hearing from our attorneys.”
In addition to this latest legal dilemma, Teresa and her husband Joe Giudice are facing a slew of fraud charges which could result in them being sentenced to 50 years behind bars.
