Teresa Giudice Has A Different Definition For Bankrupt Than Everyone Else


I have known many people who had to file for bankruptcy whether it be personally or their business. One thing they all had in common was they did not have any money. They certainly did not have enough money to go blow $65,000 on wall hangings and drapes. But then again, none of them are Teresa Giudice.

The Real Housewife and her very sweaty, angry husband were in bankruptcy court yesterday where it was revealed that within a week of filing bankruptcy they went out and spent $60,000 on a bunch of stuff they didn't need. Oh, this was after spending $20,000 the week before they filed bankruptcy on basically the same stuff.

Who even buys wall hangings? Didn't they go out of style in the Middle Ages. Maybe they watched one too many episodes of The Tudor's. Wall hangings were the in thing back in Henry VIII's day.

They also bought a lot of urns. I don't really want to speculate on Joe's career choice, but maybe the urns come in handy if you know what I mean.

LOLOLOL mob ties anyone???

Wall hangings rule!

To have cost that much, I imagine they must have been made of mermaid hair weaved with gold thread and trimmed with unicorn fur.

It's amazing, she is actually in strong competition now with Danielle for most-hated person on the show. On last night's ep, she had her four daughters dressed in the most hideous "custom gowns" I've ever seen. I bet they cost at least a grand each, and this was filmed post-bankruptcy.

Does he run a crematorium? If so, urns could be an investment.

delilah said...

this woman is a total joke. i can't even watch the show anymore because she is so f-ing dumb that i feel like i am killing brain cells watching her...plus my eyes start hurting from rolling them every 2 seconds.

I think the RHONJ are what the women of the Jersey Shore turn into next season.

Terri said...

Let's face it: if she knew how to be responsible with spending, she would not have been in bankruptcy court to begin with.

HannahPalindrome said...

I have to agree with Delilah.
I think Teresa is really dumb.
I'm not trying to be funny.
I really think she's dumb.
She never makes any sense.

To quote Michael K: Crouching hairline, hidden forehead. That is all.

KellyLynn said...

It's funny how many people think bankruptcy should happen when they can no longer afford the lifestyle to which they're accustomed, rather than the inability to pay any debts at all.

Maybe she was buying the wall-hangings to provide extra insulation in her house when the utility company turns the electricity and gas off?

Moosh, Delilah, I'm right there wit ya. I watched one episode and I was done. I read the recaps on Tvgasm because the recaps are more interesting and funny than the show. Danielle should have her children taken away from her and Teresa should have her tubes tied. God help me but they are not pretty girls. And the clothes she puts them in are even worse.

Now if they want to throw Teresa in jail I would eagerly watch Real Housewives in Prison. Ratings bonanza if you ask me.

Rickatoo said...

mngddess - I have to recommend the recaps on gawker as well!

selenakyle said...

Dang, I keep missing the shows...all of the Bravo shows, actually...Arrrggghhh!

I boycotted and boycotted all the RHO shows but then I got sucked into them all like a tractor beam.

Then I totally missed hearing that Danielle getting fired off the show. Man, where have I BEEN?

*going to go figure out where I have been at nights*

Barton Fink said...

I agree, the show is hard to watch. But -- I shouldn't confess this -- I have a terrible crush on Joe! I know! Sickening and shameful, but he's so cute, and he's so cuddly and sweet with his daughters, and he's got that big mug and that, well, okay, not the most slender guy I've ever seen, but still. My shame. Please don't hate on me too much.

Moosefan said...

This trick needs to stop. How long before those "urns" come back to haunt (no pun) them. They are nasty.

Mooshki said...

BF, well, you've probably got a chance with him. Rumor has it he has a mistress, and you can tell just from watching the show that he is completely over Theresa.

Hannah, you're right, she is dumb. Very dumb. And some part of her knows it. That's what really caused the table-flipping incident. Danielle called her "stupid" and she lost it. People are extra-sensitive about insults they suspect are true.

I was so happy when Jacqueline's mom accidentally knocked over one of those butt-ugly urns!

i want to know how they managed to hide the assets?

my mom used to know someone who used to file bankruptcy every seven years like clockwork. i guess she never paid for everything (this was at least 20 years ago).
i have a dear friend who was forced to file after his bitch of a wife left him and their recently adopted twin girls, totally screwing him over and leaving him dead broke, nothing but bills in hand (apparently she left with the fleet. such a nice mormon girl, too.). somebody bankruptcy was actually designed for. the odd thing was, he said he never got more credit offers in his life than when the dust was settling.

These Real Housewives are some of the scariest looking people I have ever seen pictures of. Too much plastic surgery and so little in the way of brains. I just can't understand why the shows are so popular.

feraltart said...

Maybe the wall hangings are for the crypt where she sleeps in her coffin.

MCH said...

Joe has been VERY angry all season so I can't help but wonder how much longer their marriage will last? I kind of felt like last season, all the ridiculous buying they were doing was SOLELY for "showy" purposes only (for the cameras). She's really the only one on the show that is extremely braggy when it comes to material things. Its pretty obnoxious, esp. considering the shite she is spending Joe's money on.

And can we talk about how horrible spoiled their kids are? I hate saying this about kids but her kids are BRATS. Totally out of control. I cannot believe how Teresa just pawned off her kids on Caroline while they were on that cruise. I would have slapped her in her two-head.

Ms.Leigh said...

@ mch i thought that too! caroline and her husband handled it really well considering. and those kids ARE spoiled brats. i would've lost my mind if i were mr&mrs caroline.

i liked theresa, but this money thing isn't painting her in the best light- i wouldn't be surprised if joe is cheating now. he seems like a good guy at the end of his ropes with her.

and OMG, the previews for the finale?!! caroline and danielle at the same table again? AMAZE-BALLS!

MCH said...

@Ms Leigh - Yeah, I kind of felt bad for Caroline/her husband. Doesn't sound like they really have a chance to go on vacation that often & they had to spend a lot of babysitting so Joe & Tere' could boink. Ayiyi.

I am disappointed that Caroline is meeting w/ the PW. I was hoping she'd be like Dina & just leave it alone. You know any kind of meeting w/ PW is not going to end well. Have you seen that compilation video they did on Danielle over on Gawker (or Defamer? I can't remember). Funny stuff.

Mooshki said...

MCH, I'm pretty sure she was forced into it by Bravo. She got out of the fashion show trainwreck, so this was probably a compromise with them. The only way for her to avoid Danielle would be to leave the show like Dina did.

Robert said...

Everybody thought it was a couples' trip until the last minute, because Theresa caved in to her bratty kids whing and crying; the look on Caroline's face through most of the trip said it all. Good times!

Christine said...

I read in a tabloid this week that Joe was caught in a club with a "goomar."

MB said...

I just watched them in Italy and they're disgusting.

Mango said...

@ Mooshki - Those custom gowns were indeed hideous and Teresa did it to impress the family who probably didn't give a rat's ass. They were so frilly and over-done and worse, uncomfortable looking. And yes, I know everyone is supposed to think kids are all cute, but her kids are unfortunate looking, especially Milania whose eyebrows are starting to meet, already has the beginnings of a mustache and has the worst temper I've seen this side of a dockside fishwife.

Barton, I'm sending some people over to deprogram you so you'll get over your crush. When you wake up tomorrow you will no longer be attracted to Joe. You will also no longer have a sense of touch in three of your fingers, be able to taste salt, or see the color blue, but c'est la vie. You gotta take the good with the bad.

Barton Fink said...

Thanks, Mango, I feel it dissipating a little already. Sometimes, admitting that you have a problem is the first step toward healing.
