A big part of watching any of Bravo’s Real Housewife programs is sitting there thinking how the f*ck do these trashy people who don’t really seem to have jobs pay for this insane shit?! This is especially true in the New Jersey iteration of the show, in which all of the unemployed housewives live in lavish mansions that look like giant pizzerias (complete with fancy “al fresco” murals and faux-stucco finish!), drive SUVs bigger than my apartment, and drop tens of thousands of dollars at a time keeping their children outfitted in the latest designer kinderwhorewear. That’s not even mentioning the veritable millions spent on hair extensions, leopard-print stretch-pants, bubbie implants and lavish banquets featuring ziti baked with diamonds!
How on Earth can these women afford this glamorous and extravagant lifestyle?!?! Oh right, they can’t:: Theresa Giudice of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has become the latest of the reality franchise’s housewives to file for bankruptcy. And is she ever bankrupt! Although she and her husband Joe together make $80k annually, they’re in debt for almost $11m.
By the way that little m stand for million!
How will poor Theresa get herself out of this mess? If things don’t get better soon, will she be forced to ask fair-weather Housewife Danielle Staub to give her some tips on prostitution whoredom? I’m sure we’ll find out in season 3!
