Teresa Giudice Home

Financial woes continue for Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice.

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.

Also continuing to make headlines is Danielle Staub, who’s sex tape is set to be released next Monday.

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.

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.

Bravo+Real+Housewives+New+Jersey+Teresa+Joe+Giudice

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.

Last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey was without a doubt the best this season, all thanks to Danielle Staub.

Danielle, who exhibited the paranoia and delusions of Kelly Bensimon mixed in with the narcissism of Jill Zarin, brought us great TV when she decided to use the fundraising event of a cancer struck baby to further her own agenda against the Manzo family.

Danielle made sure to to show up to the event with a crew/posse, ex cons included, and even permitted them to raise hell, but ofcourse leaving Chris Manzo out of it, because he is underage afterall. It was obvious from the start that Danielle was looking to stir up trouble, and nothing the Brownstone could have done would have prevented that. Dani also made sure to include her friend Kim G. in her madness, and Kim G. for whatever reason decided to go along with it all.

Well the father of the baby, who the fundraiser was held for, is now speaking out. In a new interview with Zap2it, Chris Stilianessis shares his thoughts on the events that occurred that faithful night.

“For starters, I would tell Danielle thank you for bringing my daughter’s illness to the table and to the ‘Housewives of New Jersey,’” said Stilianessis. “However, I would also tell her that I’m very surprised that you would utilize my daughter’s sickness for your own selfish reasons, to get back at the rest of the housewives.”

Stilianessis also reveals he was not aware of Danielle’s beef with the Manzos. “I had no knowledge of Danielle’s relationship [to the Manzos] prior to the fact,” he says. “Because if I did, I would have asked her politely not to come.” He continues, “She showed up to the event with I want to say in the realm of 25 people,” he says. “She had some guys who were Hells Angels. She came with people who, I come to know now, were people who were in jail. I was under the assumption they were her friends.”

It seems a friend of Danielle’s bought her one table at the benefit for $350.00, which held only 10 people. However Danielle decided to show up with over 20 people “for protection.”

“When you’re going to a charity event for a child, what do you need that for?” asks Stilianessis who also shares that Danielle only raised $300.00, which came from the owners of a local supermarket. And since her table was paid for by someone else, Danielle has yet to donate any money herself.

Stilianessis, pictured with his daughter above, still hopes that Danielle will see that what she did was wrong and apologize. “If she really has changed as she says she has,” he says. “There will be a public statement. That day in the restaurant, she had tears in her eyes. If those were true tears, her heart would open with an apology.”

The good news is that Emanuela’s cancer is currently in remission. Anyone who would like to get more information on her fight against heptablastoma can visit the Emanuela’s Heart for Hope website.

Real Housewives of New Jersey 2

Tonight brings us episode 5 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Last week, Danielle Staub introduced us to her two ex-con friends who will protect her from the big bad Manzos. Below is Jacqueline’s hilarous take on that whole situation, taken from her bravo blog -

“Introducing tweetle dumb and tweetle dumber! Are these guys actually coming on national TV and playing that Wangster card? Seriously? No one is listening Danielle, and nobody cares! If Danny really was the wiseguy he and Danielle are trying so hard to portray him to be, I am SURE his superiors are not too happy with him right now. I don’t think a real wiseguy would go on national TV and announce that to the world. It wouldn’t be very smart. Although, it might be good for his acting career. Hmmm. Danielle did nothing but make herself look like a paranoid lunatic who brings ex felons around her and into the lives of her children. Danielle claims 25 years ago she fell into the wrong crowd. Does she feel that today she is surrounding herself with a better crowd? Check again, devout Catholic. Birds of a feather, huh? Are felons even allowed to associate with other felons while on probation? I thought that was not allowed. Is it appropriate for Danielle to choose to bring those felons, for the reasons she chose to bring them, to a sensitive benefit for a family who is fighting for their daughter’s life? I don’t think so. Let’s just see what kind of drama Danielle decides bring to this benefit to make it all about her. Watch what happens.”

Who knew Jacqueline had a great sense of humor. Moving on to tonight’s episode. After bringing home baby number 4 from the hospital, Teresa decides it’s finally time for Joe to get “snipped.” Meanwhile, Caroline invites the ladies over for a “girls night in” with cocktails and snacks where the conversation turns to Danielle’s invitation to Dina’s charity at the Brownstone –will tensions rise over the her potential appearance?

And the road of good intentions gets bumpy for Danielle when she and her protective entourage prepare to attend the Brownstone. How will it all come to a head? And will things turn violent? Find out tonight @ 10/9c on BRAVO.

Below is a video preview –

real-housewives-of-new-jersey-10

Must say after three weeks of watching the new season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, I am simply not impressed. Compared to the Real Housewives of NYC, the show seems to be falling flat and the Danielle drama is getting very old. Will touch more on this later.

But on to the recap of last night’s episode. First we get a quick rehash of Jacqueline’s argument with her teenage daughter Ashley Holmes, who is now living on her own. Jacqueline is in a tough spot with parenting Ashley because Ashley is now an “adult” and no longer living under her roof. I can’t help but feel that had Jacqueline done a better job with parenting Ashley earlier on, things would be better between them now. Jacqueline herself has admitted to making parenting errors with Ashley. This also brings up a point that I feel strongly about which is that just because a kid turns 18, doesn’t really make them an adult and ready to be on their own. A girl like Ashley should still be living at home in my opinion. I’m guessing Jacqueline might be helping her financially in some shape or form. Perhaps cutting her off financially until she stops being rude would help her straighten up.

Moving on to Danielle who receives flowers from Jacqueline congratulating her daughter Christine on her modeling debut. You can see some modeling shots of Christine below. Jacqueline has stated in an earlier episode that her husband does not want her befriending Danielle, but for some reason Danielle is persistent on becoming BFFs with Jacqueline again and even decides to leave her a scolding message, accusing her of not being her own woman.

One thing I really want to touch on is Danielle’s parenting skills and why she insists on involving her innocent children in her drama and in adult issues. This started in the premiere episode when she took her kids along a car ride to stalk Caroline’s event. Her kids looked and acted embarrassed. And then last night, her youngest daughter, who once again looked mortified, asked to be excused as Danielle decided to call Jacqueline. And once again, Danielle decided to unload her adult drama onto her young daughter. Does this woman not have any friends? Involving her children in her drama is simply wrong and unnecessary. Poor kids. I’m really curious to know more about the man who decided to marry Danielle and make her the mother of his children. Danielle’s ex-husband’s name is Thomas Staub or Gerald Staub. If anyone knows anything about him or has a photo, please feel fee to email us at Realitytea@yahoo.com.

And how amazing was it last week when Christine Staub was photographed by Gilles Bensimon, the ex-husband of Kelly Bensimon of the NYC Housewives? I found that interesting for some reason considering Gilles has never made an appearance on the NYC Housewives. By the way the photos of Christine from the Daily Front Row magazine can be seen below.

Something else that robbed me the wrong way was a joke or non-joke Danielle made during an earlier episode about Christine being able to help her financially with her modeling career. Just wrong, wrong, and more wrong. Putting that kind of pressure on a 15 year-old girl is wrong and disgusting. There’s a good chance that Christine, despite being very gorgeous,, might not make it in the modeling world, so why even say that kind of thing? It’s become rather obvious that Danielle sees her daughters as meal tickets as she is also pushing her 12 year-old to get into the music industry, even calling her the next Miley Cyrus. Plus is it just me or does Danielle seem to be living vicariously through Christine’s new found career?

New Jersey Housewives

Tonight marks the all new 3rd episode of the second season of the  Real Housewives of New Jersey. In case you’re wondering, the above picture is from last year.

The drama rages on when Danielle accuses Jacqueline of not being her own woman and standing up to her family.  Meanwhile, a very pregnant Teresa and a determined Danielle are ecstatic to see their daughters modeling in New York Fashion Week. But Danielle’s daughter Christine is not 100 percent prepared to walk down the runway.

You will have to tune in to see if a mishap unfolds and costs both Christine and Danielle a future in fashion.  We will also be seeing Teresa’s husband, Joe, being mean to their then 8-year-old daughter Gia.
