Erica Pitzi, WPIX-TV:

The Bravo Network is responding to PIX 11′s  questions about one of its reality shows by taking action.  This comes  after the family of a fallen hero says they felt disrespected by a recent  episode that was filmed at the Jonathan Ielpi Memorial Park in Great Neck  Plaza. Anger swept over Melissa Ielpi-Brengel while she was watching  the Bravo reality tv show ‘Princesses: Long Island’, which follows six pampered  Long Island women who live with their parents.

In Sunday’s episode, one of the so-called princesses who was doing a photo  shoot to promote her product, incorporated a FDNY memorial and 9/11 statue from  the Jonathan Ielpi Memorial Park.

The scene shows Amanda Bertoncini doing a photo shoot for her product (a  piece of fabric that wraps around any sort of drink can or bottle) at the FDNY  memorial where one of the models is hanging on the bronze statue of firefighter  Jonathan Ielpi. You can hear the photographer tell the model, “Kiss the fireman,  try to feed him the beer.”  Then Bertoncini exclaims, “Yeah, feed him the  beer!  Then act scared.”
