Bravo Issues Statement About 'Princesses' Episode
Amanda Bertoncini also responds to footage included in Sunday’s show.
On Sunday's episode of Princesses Long Island, Amanda Bertoncini was filmed taking photos for her product at a 9/11 memorial park for fallen firefighter Jonathan Ielpi in Great Neck, Long Island.
Bravo would like apologize for any distress we may have caused the family of Jonathan Ielpi and other firefighters. As soon as we were alerted that this was a memorial statue, we immediately removed the footage from any future airings. Again, we deeply regret this.
Bertoncini has also issued an apology. “I would like to apologize to the community of Great Neck, fellow Long Islanders, and anyone who was affected by 9/11," she says. "I would especially like to extend my sincere apology to the family of Jonathan Ielpi. I never meant to hurt or offend anyone.”
