The Real Housewives of Foreclosure


It looks like diva Teresa Giudice of Bravo’s hit show ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ is yet another addition to a growing list of housewives getting a taste of foreclosure. According to a New York Post article the NJ couple owes over $11 million to creditors and have sought bankruptcy as a ‘fresh start.’ Meanwhile the bank holding the mortgage on their gaudy eight-bedroom mansion has filed foreclosure proceedings.

The couple owes $2.6 million, or eight mortgages, on three separate homes. Two homes have already been repossessed by the lenders. Other debt includes $104,000 in retail credit cards, a $1,280 monthly car payment and a $2,300 monthly phone bill.

Despite their lavish lifestyle, the bankruptcy filling shows the couple only reported an income of $79,000 per year and another, more mysterious, $120,000 per year from family “assistance.”

On the hit Bravo TV show, Giudice is known for her ostentatious spending habits including buying designer clothes for her three young girls. In one of the more notable shopping sprees Giudice threw down $2,000 in a mere ten minutes.

Viewers can only hope to see the quintessential Teresa ‘flip out’ if the custom home does eventually head to the auction block. I know I’ll be tuning in for some Garden State dram-o-rama.
