The latest is now that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who famously declared on the show’s 1st season that living in a previously-owned home was “gross,” has listed her famous New Jersey home for sale. The asking price? A cool $3,999,000.
Oddly enough, Teresa and hubby Joe declared the home value to be $1.7 million in their October 2009 bankruptcy filing. Guess the home value must have doubled since last year.
There are also conflicting reports on the status of the home, which they can be seen living in on the Bravo reality show. A previous report by the NYPost stated the bank had started foreclosure proceedings on the extensive marble home. Perhaps trying to sell the home for a $2.3 million profit is their last ditch attempt to save it and make some quick change.
And a new report by the NYPost today claims Teresa is capitalizing off her new bankruptcy fame. According to the Post, Teresa will be appearing in next week’s InTouch magazine to talk about her body and workout routine. Teresa is said to be getting paid less than $10,000 for the story. The post however claims the article will not focus on her financial woes.
UPDATE - Teresa is now claiming via her twitter page, that her home is not up for sale. She tweeted, “HUGE NEWS CORRECTION-I’m telling you guys first and directly…MY HOUSE IS NOT FOR SALE!!! Sorry if you were dreaming of moving in w/ me. xx”
Perhaps more of that “family assistance” has come in for she and Joe, as houses just don’t magically appear on real estates websites for sale.
Danielle, who reveals her past as a stripper and escort in her memoir – The Naked Truth, is now claiming she was blackmailed for months over her sex tape.
In a new interview with HollywoodLife, the mother of two opens up about the sex tape. “I had a sexual relationship that was supposed to remain private,” claims Danielle, who has done nothing to try to stop the release of the tape. “I was approached and I’ve been being blackmailed for quite some time and there’s NOTHING I could do to shut it down.”
Right Danielle. She also denies claims that she leaked her own sex tape. “I would never release my own sex tape. I would never do such a thing,” she says adamantly. “It’s not true that I made the film to be released to the public,” she says. “I’m holding the camera in my hand and taking pictures of myself so I don’t know why people think the footage is high quality.”
So says Danielle who filmed the sex tape months after the airing of the first season of the Real Housewives of NJ. As we have reported, all signs point to Danielle being behind the so called “leak “and “theft” of the sex tape.
Porn star Reality star Danielle Staubis finally breaking her silence on her soon to be released sex tape.
The 47-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star was caught running errands yesterday and was briefly interviewed by TMZ. In the impromptu interview, Danielle claims the tape was stolen but admits she won’t be fighting it’s release. Danielle also believes her sex tape will outsell that of E!’s Kendra Wilkinson, because her tape has something Kendra’s tape doesn’t……herself!
Danielle – “You know that’s a good question because I haven’t seen hers. I haven’t seen mine either but I do know I was in it, so if it’s going to do anything, I would hope mine would do better, (laughs) I don’t know how to answer that.”
TMZ – Are you going to fight its release?
Danielle – “Um I did try to in the beginning but I just decided you know what if you can’t beat them, join them, so what am I left to do? It wasn’t something that I would have chose to have released but it’s out there and there’s nothing I can do about it.”
Interesting she has all these “ums” in front of her lies answers. When asked about the unidentified man in the sex tape with her, Danielle shares that communication with him is fine, and to the best of her knowledge, he had nothing to do with it. She however wouldn’t reveal the guy’s identity.
She was also asked about her castmate’s thoughts on the tape, Danielle replied, “Oh I don’t care what they say ever about me.”
Also released today is a 38 second video preview of the sex tape on the site DanielleStaubRaw.com. While the preview clip contains no nudity, it might not be safe for work. For a $29.95 monthly subscription, you will however be able to view the tape in its entirety when its released Monday, June 14th.
In the preview clip, which looks more like a porno movie than a leaked sex tape, Danielle can be seen mostly talking and smiling into the camera. And according to our poll from yesterday, an astonishing 98% of you believe Danielle leaked out this sex tape. Well, can’t say we disagree with you all.
Danielle Staub made her first public appearance last night since news of her new sex tape hit. The picture above was taken at the one year birthday celebration for Scores in New York City. And in case you’re wondering, Scores is a strip club.
TMZ has also published graphic photos of the Real Housewives of New Jersey star today. The photos show the 46-year-old mother of two smiling into the camera while sometimes holding up the camera herself. Eight of those images are below. The photos are tagged with Daniellestaubraw.com(the site is not yet up), where her sex tape will ultimately be released next Monday on June 14th.
Speaking out against Danielle now is her co-star Jacqueline Laurita. Jackqueline tells TMZ, “I’d be very happy if [Staub] left our show … Why doesn’t she just leave and go do porn?” Adding, “Danielle has total disregard for how [the tape] will affect her daughters’ impressionable years.”
The question everyone has now seems to be did Danielle leak her own sex tape? Well Jacqueline seems to think so, as she also took to her twitter to express what most of us suspect. She tweeted, “Heard from a VERY reliable source that D (Danielle) released her OWN sex tape. Heard it’s disgusting. Such disregard 4 her kids. I feel horrible 4 them.”
Can’t say we disagree with Jacqueline. Why is Danielle the likely culprit behind this sex tape leak? Well for one, Hustler revealed this sex tape was shot last September, just a few months after she won an injunction to stop the release of her first tape with Steve Zalewski. Perhaps she wasn’t happy with that tape content, as it only included an oral sex scene shot with a cell phone camera. The new tape however includes 75 minutes of footage.
Another clue? As we have previously reported, porn companies cannot release a sex tape of a public figure without some kind of authorization, meaning Danielle and yes Kendra Wilkinson too, had to sign off on a release. Plus when you see the images from the tape, well it become more obvious.

Well it’s now June, and TMZ is confirming today that Hustler will be releasing the graphic sex tape on June 14th, which is next Monday. The big shocker? This sex tape was shot in September 2009, just months after Danielle was able to successfully stop the release of a previous sex tape she made with her ex Steve Zalewski.
Steve is Danielle’s boy toy from season 1 of the show, and Steve will coincidentally be appearing on next week’s episode to discuss the first sex tape with Danielle’s co-star Jacqueline Laurita. According to Steve, his sex tape with Danielle was only an oral sex scene.
As for what’s on the new sex tape? According to CrabbyGoLightly.com, Danielle and her pierced you know what will be seen engaging in “some missionary, some doggy style, and some pile-driving” with the unidentified male in the 45 minute tape. The crabbygolightly site claims, “You really don’t see her partner’s face, just his condom-covered member. At least she’s practicing safe sex.”
The man on the sex tape has yet to be identified. And in case you’re wondering, most adult companies do not release sex tapes without the consent of the star, meaning there’s a 99.98% chance Danielle has authorized the release of this tape. Let’s all hope that Danielle, who happens to be a mother of two daughters, is being compensated well for selling her soul it.
The above picture of Teresa was taken last night (and yes she really wore that outfit) at a Project Ladybug benefit in Paterson, NJ. UsWeekly was able to interview Teresa and of course the hot topic was her bankruptcy filing.
“I have moral support; I have my daughters and my husband. As long as we’re in good health, that’s all we can do. I think this kind of situation is all over the world,” said Teresa who also claims her financial issues will be addressed on a feature episode of the Bravo show.
Teresa also revealed she contemplated even showing up to the event in light of negative press. “I was like, ‘Should I go?’” she told Us. “I think that by me being here, hopefully everybody will see that I’m just trying to do the best I can.”

News of Teresa Giudice’s bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million in debt sent the web buzzing on Saturday. After sending out a message via twitter to tell her fans she was “fine,” Teresa is now once again breaking her silence in a statement to PEOPLE magazine.
“While this is a personal matter, I realize that certain aspects of my private life will always be subject to scrutiny and distortion,” said the Real Housewives of New Jersey star. “What is true is that due to the economy, most of my husband’s real estate ventures failed despite his hard work and effort. As a result, we looked to the Bankruptcy Court for a ‘fresh start.’”
Not quite sure what Teresa means by “distortion” considering the debt figures came directly from the bankruptcy court papers she filed with her husband Joe Giudice. Teresa, 38, and Joe filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which requires liquidation of assets in order to pay creditors.
Amongst Teresa’s irresponsible debt?
$104,000 Credit Cards debt including $20,000 to Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom
$1,280 monthly payment for Cadillac Escalade
$85,600 Home repairs
$12,000 Fertility treatments
And despite Bravo’s Andy Cohen falsely proclaiming on the Today Show this morning that Teresa’s $1.8 million home was not in foreclosure, the NYPost reports the banks have started the foreclosure proceedings on the NJ home. This is the home Teresa was shown moving into during the first season of the NJ Housewives.
Andy also revealed one of the upcoming episodes will feature Teresa throwing an extravagant housewarming party. “When people fall, the way to success is to get up and learn from our mistakes,” says Teresa. “We are in that process.”
Just last week, Teresa was shown bragging about spending a lot of money on her daughter’s birthday party. It will definitely be interesting to see the public’s reaction to Teresa’s frivolous spending as the show moves along.
On tonight’s episode, we get to see the whole aftermath of the Brownstone fundraiser fiasco. After Danielle’s outburst at the Brownstone, another battle breaks out, and this time it’s via Facebook, when Danielle accuses Jacqueline’s teenage daughter Ashley of threatening her life. Wanting to put an end to the drama, Jacqueline and Teresa confront Ashley about the alleged attacks.
Meanwhile, Dina arranges a face-to-face meeting with Danielle to officially cut her out of her life. Will their one-on-one end with a contentious bang? And will Dina finally be able to rid herself of the “Danielle Drama” for good? Find out tonight 6/7 @ 10/9c on Bravo.
Below is a video preview -
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST EPISODE OF THE NJ HOUSEWIVES?
“She seems like a stalker that convinced producers to let her on the show. She even admitted she was “obsessed” with Kelly and Max. I got the feeling that Sonja had sex with Max just because she had watched Max and Kelly date last season. Um, gross. Something about her is just too desperate. I don’t know, I haven’t put my finger on it yet…” – April 23, 2010
“You know who I don’t know though? Sonja. I’ve never met her, and she’s newer than me, so she hasn’t said nasty things about me (yet) so I can’t possibly be biased against her, right? I’m just going to watch and judge. (Isn’t that Bravo’s tagline? Watch And Judge?) And here’s what I think: Crazy Old Whore…” – April 16, 2010
“She bragged about how much she loves sex, how much she has sex, how many young guys she has sex with… I’m not buying it. First, let’s look at the facts. She’s not married, so all that screwing around does make her a whore. Secondly, she has a 9-year-old daughter, whom I’m assuming has heard of TV. How very Danielle of her to brag about being a whore on a show that will eventually show her daughter with her…” – April 16, 2010
“Thirdly, she’s too old to be screwing around like that. She’s not even a cougar; she’s like a cougar’s mom. And finally, she was married for 10 years to a guy who was 77 when they got divorced (I had to look him up, it was killing me). Don’t act like you’re all sensual and into sex when you married your grandpa. Bitch…” – April 16, 2010
This was the big story that was supposed to be posted on Saturday but unfortunately, Teresa’s huge bankruptcy news came out the same day. On Friday, Teresa posted her NYC Housewives weekly blog for PEOPLE magazine, but this week was a little different, as Teresa just completely decided to trash Bethenny Frankel of the Real Housewives of NYC.
Teresa first began her blog and sort of sided with Jill, saying Bethenny was too cold and unforgiving. Okay fine, nothing wrong with her honest opinion. Things however took a very ugly turn when Teresa posted the following -
“Bethenny also claimed she wouldn’t play the pregnancy card, but that’s all she’s done in the press all season. I know, I know, you all love Bethenny. And that’s fine. You can love her. You don’t know her. As I make the rounds for my book Skinny Italian — third week in a row on The New York Times Bestseller List! (insert Gia scream here) — I’m meeting all the same reporters, producers and even make-up artists that Bethenny regularly interacts with. And they all have the same thing to say: “She used to be a fun, regular girl, but after she got successful, she became a total bitch.” I know she acts sweet to her fans on Twitter, but as an insider, I’m here to tell you, it’s an act. She is not sweet. She is calculating and cold.”
Whoa there Teresa! Where did that come from? seemed to be the reaction of I and most of the viewers who read that. A lot of the comments posted on Teresa’s blog were negative in defense of Bethenny, causing Teresa to then post the following rants on her twitter -
“She’s in a swimsuit for a mag shoot 3 WEEKS after her baby? I don’t like that b/c I think it puts abnormal pressure on regular woman.”
“Bethenny is not normal. She has a full-time baby nurse. She had a 4 lb baby a month early. Please do not compare yourself to her!”
But how does Teresa know Bethenny has a full-time baby nurse? More importantly why is it of importance to her? And oh yeah, Teresa has since deleted the tweets. Once Bethenny and non-Bethenny fans began to ask Teresa what gives? Teresa first claimed her reason for bashing Bethenny is because Bethenny continues to trash her fellow NYC castmates. I’m guessing those housewives are Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon. So evidently Teresa cares about Jill and Kelly so much, to the point of trying to collect dirt from random people to try to use against Bethenny in their defense? Yeah, the fans weren’t buying it either causing Teresa to then change her reason.
Teresa went on to say the reason for her comments were because Bethenny said some mean things about her last year. The mean comments Teresa’s referring to came from Bethenny’s blogs on the first season of the NJ Housewives.
Teresa even went as far as to collect all of Bethenny’s disses against her from last year and post it in a link to her twitter followers. Which includes Bethenny asking if Teresa is “a total moron” as a result of Teresa saying the non existence word – “Cleansi-ness” last season. Other Bethenny insults include calling Teresa stupid, a drunken mess, and classless for the infamous table flipping act.
So according to Teresa (who also bashed Bethenny last year by saying she was “disgusted” by her nude PETA), it was wrong for Bethenny to bash her in her Bravo blogs. So then why did Teresa decide to do the same exact thing, even worse, to Sonja Morgan, who Teresa even admits has never wronged her? And clearly Teresa’s insults to Sonja were much worse than what Bethenny had to say. Teresa called Sonja “desperate,” “a stalker,” a “crazy old whore,” and “a bitch.”
Bethenny’s comments are based on Teresa’s actions on the show, and have been echoed by I and many others who watch the show, while Teresa’s comments in her PEOPLE blog seem to be based on a personal and rather unhealthy vendetta Teresa has against Bethenny, who to my knowledge, has yet to speak a word about Teresa to the press since her blogs. And before I’m accused of choosing sides, I must say I’ve always liked both Teresa and Bethenny. I do however feel that Teresa’s attack on Bethenny was a bit below the belt. It wasn’t a Bethenny is a moron or stupid kind of insult, it was almost like a call to Bethenny’s fans, telling them not to support this woman’s businesses because she is an alleged fraud and a “total bitch,” based on her “insider” information. Plus why is Teresa spending her time trying to get dirt from people who have worked with Bethenny? Surely she has more important things to do with her time, considering she has 4 kids to take care of and a $11 M debt.
By the way, here’s what NYC freelance photographer Sara Jaye Weis had to say about working with Bethenny –
“I beg to differ on Teresa’s take on Bethenny. I am a photographer who has been assigned to shoot Bethenny on several occasions over the years. Bethenny is nice, normal, and accommodating to everyone on set and is a team player. That has not changed. I’ve photographed quite a few divas and not-very-nice celebs who make the day horrible for the entire crew. Bethenny has always been kind and respectful to all. I’ve witnessed Bethenny do some very kind things for people that provide no ‘upside’ for herself. I just feel the need to point out that I, too, as an actual ‘insider’ know a very different Bethenny than the one that Teresa describes.”
I’m still a bit taken back by Teresa’s comments. Perhaps this was a deliberate attempt by Teresa to make headlines knowing the bankruptcy news about her $11 M debt would be coming out the next day. Something about Teresa’s comments was just a tad bit vindictive.
And no, by no means is Bethenny a saint, and I have criticized her in the past for her mean comments towards others. However, I will say she has toned it down a whole lot in the past 8 months or so, perhaps having learned that her words do have the power to hurt others.
As for Bethenny’s reply to Teresa? Well she appeared to take the high road and simply thanked her fans for their support. Of course, the question now is who’s side are you on?
TELL US – WHO’S SIDE ARE YOU ON? TERESA’S OR BETHENNY’S?
Ah yai yai, another Bravo housewife bites the dust! In somewhat shocking and not so shocking news, the NY Post is reporting today that Teresa Giudice, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, has filed for bankruptcy alongside her husband.
Even more shocking? Teresa and hubby Joe Giudice owe nearly $11 million dollars, and have their income listed at only $79,000 a year. And it doesn’t end there. Teresa’s home is also in foreclosure, and yes this is the same $1.8 million, 10,500-square-foot home Teresa was shown moving into during the first season. The bank has started the foreclosure proceedings.
The NYPost refers to the Giudices as “real-life deadbeats” who “are up to their tanned necks in liens, foreclosures and unpaid bills.” In bankruptcy papers filed in Newark federal court, the Giudices say they owe their creditors an astonishing $10,853,648.04.
Teresa and Joe have also defaulted on their $1,280-a-month payment for the family’s luxury black Cadillac Escalade.
It gets even worse folks. The banks have also foreclosed on other homes owned by the couple, including a $279,000 four-bedroom Jersey Shore house. The Giudices are said to have had three mortgages on the house and owed $325,000. Also foreclosed on is a $200,000 home in Lincoln Park, NJ, that had four mortgages — and an outstanding debt of $600,000.
And despite being shown on their Bravo reality show as spending thousands and thousands of dollars on their kids’ clothing, Teresa and Joe claim to spend just $400 a month on clothes in court papers.
As for their income, Joe has his monthly income listed at $3,250; while Teresa lists hers as $3,333. The couple also lists another $10,000 in “monthly assistance from family members.”
And oh yeah, Teresa also owes nearly $20,000 to Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom. Their credit card debt alone is listed at $104,000.
TELL US – ARE YOU SHOCKED? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TERESA’S MASSIVE DEBTS?
UPDATE: Teresa, who appears to not be in denial at all about her $11 M debt, posted the following message on her twitter Saturday -
“A huge THANK YOU to all my fans for all your love and support. Joe & I are just fine and will continue to be. ♥♥♥from our house to yours! xx.”
Wonder which one of their foreclosed houses that is… But it is nice to know Teresa and hubby Joe will continue to be fine, while the rest of society is forced to incur their irresponsible debt.
