Justifying it by saying that wine has been the family business for four generations, Miami WIOD morning talk show host Jimmy Cefalo admitted he allows his 9 year old daughter to drink wine. Cefalo made the statement during his October 13th show.
The subject came up when discussing a recent house party that was in the news involving underage alcohol consumption where the owners of the house, a married couple, were present. As a result, 4 juveniles and the two adults were arrested.
Jimmy Cefalo stated that while he did not agree with allowing underage teens to drink alcohol, he said it was ok if a parent gave the juvenile the alcohol. Apparently Cefalo believes he does not have to abide by the laws other Floridians have to respect, namely that it is illegal for anyone under 21 to possess alcohol or for anyone to supply an underage person with alcohol.
Nine years old Jimmy? You are bragging about giving your nine year old wine? Maybe you should wait a bit…..let’s say another 10 years or so…before you start teaching your babes about the “family business.” At least we know Jimmy Cefalo won’t be winning any Father of the Year awards anytime soon.
