  • Teresa Giudice flaunted her sexy body in a black two-piece Chanel bikini on Instagram
  • Her post attracted bashers when one pointed out that she was allegedly wearing fake Chanel
  • Some suggested that she must have gotten the bikini from her husband, Luis Ruelas, as a gift

Teresa Giudice is under fire for allegedly wearing a fake Chanel bikini during her tropical vacation with her family for the holidays.

On Tuesday, the 50-year-old "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star took to Instagram to post a sexy photo of her posing poolside in Tulum, Mexico, while rocking a two-piece black bikini and a sombrero. Her bikini top sported the Chanel logo on the right cup.

Her post quickly accumulated praise from her fans who were pleased and proud of her lean figure, with many even leaving fire emojis in the comments section.

However, shortly after Giudice posted the snap, Instagram account The Real Bad Fashions grabbed her photo and placed it side-by-side with images of the official Chanel bikini pieces.

"We love alleged designer inspired swimwear here! Also, before I hear 'it has a tag' ... you really think that if someone can allegedly copy a design, the same can't happen to a tag? It's 2023 babes, not 1923," read the caption for the post, which quickly caught the attention of many netizens.

Several instantly called out Giudice for allegedly buying and using fake luxury items.

"I don't understand, these women have money but why do they buy fakes?" one asked.

"She ironed on the CC herself," another opined while noting the difference in size and thickness of the monogram on Giudice's bikini with that of the original Chanel products.

"Teresa lives in knockoff designer swimwear," a third user commented.

Some also suggested that Giudice's bikini could have been gifted by her husband Luis "Louie" Ruelas, 47, who was previously accused of gifting Teresa's daughters fake Cartier bracelets for Christmas.

A similar bikini worn by Giudice retails for $299 on Poshmark, according to Page Six. The outlet reached out to the Bravo star's rep for comment on the issue, but the latter did not immediately respond.

Meanwhile, Giudice recently made headlines when she dropped a shocking revelation about her sex life with her husband of four months. In an exclusive with People, she revealed that they have sex three times a day.

According to Giudice, even before meeting Ruelas, she already hoped to find a partner who would have sex with her "at least three times a day." She said she's very happy because Ruelas matches her sex drive.

Back in August, the pair shared that during their honeymoon, they were making love five times a day as newlyweds. "You figure morning, afternoon, nighttime and in between," Giudice said before noting that it's a "normal thing" for couples to do.
