In the meantime, Giudice is doing what she can to bring in income to pay off her mounting debts, but unfortunately, her fans seem to be completely turned off by her admission to four counts of fraud.

On April 22, Radar Online reported that the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star's book sales have seen a major drop.

According to figures from Nielsen BookScan, "Fabulicious! On The Grill" sold 5,920 copies from its May 1, 2013 to the end of 2013, but from January 2013 until now, the book has sold just 80 copies, which is more than a 97% decrease.

"Fabulicious! Fast & Fit" had been selling at a rate of just over 1,000 copies per month up until the first of this year. Then, beginning in January, it’s sold just 125 copies, an 88% decrease.

Being involved in such a highly-publicised case hasn't been a good thing for Teresa, and chances are, when she receives her official sentence, things are only going to get worse. If she and her husband go to jail, which is likely, fans are sure to be turned off. While certain legal battles, such as Bethenny Frankel's custody case, may increase a celebrities notoriety, Teresa and Joe's scheming people out of money is quickly making them one of the most hated couples in reality TV.

In light of her recent sales plummet, Giudice has reportedly been forced to look into selling her home, in order to pay off her debt.

“Her book sales have been very low, and Teresa hasn’t been offered any gigs for paid promotional appearances either,” a source revealed to Radar Online on April 18. “It’s a foregone conclusion, Teresa absolutely will have to sell her beloved New Jersey mansion. She’s terrified she could end up homeless.”
