HomeTVDramaTamara Tunie’s Ex-Business Manager Stole $1 Million Luke Kerr November 10, 2011 Drama, NBC 7 Comments Joseph Cilibrasi, the fromer business manager of Law & Order: SVU and ex-As the World Turns star Tamara Tunie, has admitted to stealing over $1 million from the actress, according to the New York Post. Reportedly, the crime took place over the course of a decade.

Cilibrasi will be sentenced on January 4. 7 Responses soapbaby November 10, 2011 $1 mil!!! Just awful. That’s a bastard and I hope he gets what’s coming to him. On a separate-note: Why such a bad picture of my homegirl? Lol.

I would like for Days to hire Tamara on a FT basis because this woman has major acting chops. Let Abe this time hit the sheets and have affair and comes out in press and EJ uses it to his advantage. Maybe some old history between Abe and her rekindled. That sure would bring out the Dimera side of Lexie! Tamara can play a good bitch when needed and let the cat fight begin.

If I were a celebrity with a huge net worth, I would INSIST on investing my own money and keeping it locked away from shady financial advisers. It’s a lot of extra work, but in the end, it’s worth it. Log in to Reply Dariclone November 11, 2011 I’m sending out good thoughts to Tamara and anyone else this man has cheated. I hope he gets a good solid prison term. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott November 11, 2011 What a bastard. I’m so sorry this happened to her. I hope he goes away for a long time. Log in to Reply pumpkin November 11, 2011 Sorry this happened. I can’t imagine having so much money that I wouldn’t notice a million missing even if it was over so many years. I know a lot of the actors made a lot of money years ago on soaps that made them wealthy but it never ceases to amaze me how the genre has slipped so far. Still a lot of work went into the earnings so that is wrong. I hope the person and/or persons spend time in jail. Live and learn. If possible manage own money or be involved.
