Mom charges $200 for Christmas dinner per person


A mother dubbed “Britain’s most hated woman” is back in the spotlight — this time for charging her family members to dine on her Christmas dinner.

Carla Bellucci said she’ll be charging her relatives nearly $200 per person for family Christmas dinner, believing that she should be compensated for the burden of preparing a meal for 15 people.

“It’s not cheap feeding people and it also takes a lot of time to put together a nice meal.”

Belluci has an immediate family of six — including her husband Gio and her youngest three children, Tanisha, 18, Jayden, 15, and Blue, 12 months — and is expecting nine additional relatives at her home Christmas Day, most of whom are expected to pay upfront at the door.

The $200 fee includes a complete dinner starring turkey and one glass of champagne. Any additional alcohol consumed will have to be BYOB, Belluci said.

She admitted that she’ll be pocketing at least some of the money from the holiday feast, saying, “Everything I do is for profit and my family understands that.”

But some relatives might be “disgusted” by the idea and not bother to show, Belluci said, but “if you want quality, you have to pay for it.”

“You might find a carvery that’s cheaper than my place, but my dinner is going to be a lot more classy than that. It wouldn’t be any cheaper if you went to a restaurant or hotel for a Christmas Day meal, so why should I be out of pocket?”

A strict schedule will also be enforced, said Belluci: Doors will open at 2 p.m. and, after a game of charades, she intends to “kick them all out and send them home” at 10 p.m.
