Eileen Chiarello Chef Michael Chiarello’s Wife

Eileen Chiarello

Eileen Chiarello is the wife of celebrity chef, Michael Chiarello. The wife and mom of one will surely not be happy with her husband of 13-years after hearing he was arrested on DUI and drug charges.

According to reports, 54-year-old Chiarello was arrested after his Porsche was stopped around 3.30am Wednesday, just a couple of miles from one of his restaurants, in Napa.

Reports say he has since apologized to his family and is also, planning to fight the charges. Isn’t being a famous chef makes having that one extra drink that much easier?

Would you let this pass if you were Eileen? Maybe, after all he could have been working until late and had too many drinks. How about that sexual harassment lawsuit he recently settled?

All we are saying is Eileen Chiarello should get a very special Christmas gift this year, don’t you agree?
