Jump To Theresa Giudice's Stats
Teresa Giudice has a way of ingratiating herself with, er, no one really. As the beginning of the reality star's fourth year on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Giudice has apparently got under the skin of some of her costars. Rumor has it that Caroline Manzo, Kathy Wakile, Jacqueline Laurita and Melissa Gorga want nothing to do with Teresa, and Giudice wants nothing to do with them.
During season three though, Giudice's surprise $11 million bankruptcy petition and crumbling interpersonal relations made for good reality drama. While her husband Joe has been accused of running up massive debt and using a fake identity, Giudice maintains that things in her family – including the financial situation – will turn out fine.
Beside her central role on the New Jersey version of housewives wars, Giudice has written a commercial successful and best-selling cookbook. In addition, Giudice has appeared on Donald Trump's reality television series Celebrity Apprentice.
The Giudices have successfully been able to withdraw their bankruptcy petition because it appears that they will be able to pay off all of their dept without the court's intervention. One of the positive points with that move on their part reduces any federal crime allegations that the couple may have faced during the proceeding. Teresa claims that she nows makes enough money that all the bill will be paid off with the necessity of a bankruptcy.
Giudice has improved her financial situation with a new makeup line of cosmetics and prepackaged cocktail. Her best-selling book Skinny-Italian continues to generate much needed revenue while her husband Joe has been able to settle a huge debt that he had with a former business partner.
