Bravo truly has something good going with the housewives, and especially with the "Real Housewives of New Jersey." They aren't responsible though, for what the housewives do when they're not on the air, and that has caused serious problems for Teresa Giudice. Her legal issues have really come back to bite her, and has her with a celebrity net worth of negative $11 million.
- Net worth: - $11 million
- Salary: $650,000 per season
Believe it or not, Teresa has a degree in Fashion Marketing and Management even though she never really uses it. She did long ago though. After leaving college, she was a contributor for "Vogue" magazine and also worked at Macy's as an accessories buyer.
She has published two cookbooks and even developed her own jewelry line called "TG Fabulicious." She also produces a clothing line along with hair bows and hats for young girls and women.
In 2011, the couple filed for bankruptcy and claimed to be more than $11 million in debt at the time. In mid-2013, they were indicted on 39 counts of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, bank fraud, wire fraud, bankruptcy fraud and making false statements on loan applications.
During their court appearances, it was revealed that Joe and Teresa Giudice overstated their incomes to receive around $4.6 million in lines of credit and mortgage payments.
According to reports, Teresa was the second-highest paid housewife on Bravo, and she was only behind NeNe Leakes.
