'Jerseylicious' Tracy Dimarco says Corey Epstein was not part of drug ring

'Jerseylicious' star Tracy Dimarco is standing behind her man even though he did something quite stupid. Page Six reported on Monday, Jan. 27, that her new husband, Corey Epstein, was busted in a big drug sting last week for selling prescription drugs on the street.

According to the Richmond County DA’s office, he sold an undercover officer three Oxycodone pills outside his home.

The sting operation, dubbed "Operation Silent Hill," was a 16-month operation that spanned Staten Island.

“This long-term investigation uncovered a wide network of criminals who were peddling their narcotics across Staten Island. With no regard for the law-abiding citizens and children they put in danger, these defendants sought to make money dealing illegal drugs," said District Attorney Daniel Donovan.

Tracy has blasted the district attorney for including Corey, whom she maintains was not part of the drug ring, in the press announcement.

"I'm happy Donovan is trying to get everything cleared up and drugs off the street I've never done and never will do any sort of drug I don't even smoke cigarettes or weed . I'm very straight edged & I am supportive of what he's trying to do however I don't think Corey's face and name should be splashed across the magazines tabloids & newspapers just bc he's on a show it makes him look like he ran a cartel or something it's INSANE !!" she wrote on Instagram earlier today.

"we are not part of that ... at least 19 people were indited n were sent to rikers and yet Corey's name n pic is the only one being used and he was let go that day - they're using the jerseylicious name to make this a publicity rant," she added.

While Corey may not have been part of the drug ring, he was still busted selling prescription drugs so perhaps Tracy shouldn't be lashing out at the district attorney too much!
