Not that you needed any more reasons for your disgust dislike of Teresa Giudice, but we’re about to give you 60,000 more.
The NYPost is reporting today that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star celebrated being debt free by going on a $60,000 spending spree, after filing for bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million in debt back in October, 2009.
The shocker hasn’t even come yet. According to the Post, Teresa and hubby Joe Giudice blew $8,800 for curtains and nearly $45,000 on wall hangings, mirrors, frames, tables, urns and chairs, just days after filing bankruptcy. Just days folks…. Unbelievable.
This little tidbit came out yesterday as the morons Giudices had their attorney James Kridel file a court document with receipts that detailed the irresponsible spending, as a way to show the court that some of their auction items were purchased after their filing. The Post reports even Kridel seemed at a loss for words when trying to explain the asinine spending to Judge Morris Stern, saying he knew the documents presented “a dilemma” and that the Judge might view it as “conspicuous consumption.” Ya think?
“These were not Ikea-purchased furniture items,” Judge Stern said. “These were from high-end design stores.”
As we reported yesterday, the judge refused to stop the public auction of the Giudices home items, but postponed it to Oct. 3. Bankruptcy trustee John Sywilok, who has accused the Giudices of concealing assets, was also present during the hearing and stated that right before their bankruptcy filing, the Giudices purchased $21,000 worth of furniture and paid off a total of $11,000 of that amount just two days before filing.
And there’s more folks! While Teresa refused to comment on her irresponsible wasteful disgusting spending spree, hubby Joe, who is said to have been sweating profusely, got a little testy at the reporters. “None of your business! Back off before I get pissed!” stated an angry Joe outside of the courtroom.
And somewhere in America, an average couple is holding multiple jobs to keep a roof over their heads, feed their kids, and pay off their debt, while the Giudices get to remain debt free and live in their $5 mil mansion! Surely this has to be criminal…
UPDATE: Teresa’s lawyer James Kridel tries to explain the unbelievable spending spree she went on just days after filing bankruptcy.“That was the money she earned as an advance for her book Skinny Italian,” her attorney tells PEOPLE. “Since she earned it after the filing, she was absolutely free to spend it.”
It doesn’t end there. Kridel then tries to explain why Teresa needed to buy $60,000 worth of furniture while also acknowledging just how incredibly awful and disgusting this makes his client look. “She needed to re-buy furniture because she didn’t have any furniture in the house,” says Kridel. “It’s a big house and she wanted furniture consistent with her style on the show. There is nothing wrong with doing that, except that it doesn’t look good for her to be doing it.” No Kridel, it doesn’t, not by a long shot.
Must say it’s quite interesting that Teresa managed to receive her book advance just a few days after filing bankruptcy.
