And here we thought the Jersey Shore crew was honest!
The reality tv star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and his family are keeping clear of clothing supplier Embroidme owner, Maria Emma, because they apparently owe her $30,000.
Ortiz-Magro stocked up his Ronnie Shore Store, located in the Bronx, with the clothing that was produced by the embroidery company before it opened, but
forgot didn't pay Emma first.
Maria said Ronnie Sr. sent two $10,000 checks, but the family canceled them:
"They’re disgusting. I’m getting stop-payment checks. I can’t even write payroll checks to my employees."
That's just WRONG.
According to the company owner, Ronnie's 12,000 piece order of t-shirts, bags, towels, sandals, and tops with the words "I'm done" and "If you don't remember it, deny deny deny" printed on them, was completed in two weeks, which was a job that would usually take three months.
Miz Emma has produced inventory for Martha Stewart, DKNY, and Yves Saint Laurent and talked about how rushed her team was:
"Rushed is an understatement. We didn’t sleep. We moved all of the products aside. We treated it like it was our own company. Everything was delivered months ago, and they’re making money off it."
The reality star's spokeswoman, Juliana Goldman, said Ronnie's crew wasn't happy with the outcome of the designs and that's why they canceled the checks:
"The checks being referenced did not bounce but were canceled due to the poor quality of some of the shirts and the turnaround time promised not being honored."
Hmmm, this situation sounds very shallow. If they're not "satisfied", why are they selling it???
The Ortiz-Magro bunch must really live by the writings they put on their shirts because they sure are acting like they don't remember how to pay, so they're deny deny denying!
