Teresa Giudice, of Real Housewives of New Jersey, and her husband Joe filed for bankruptcy in October of 2009. According to bankruptcy reports, the couple is in more than 11 million dollars worth of debt. The family’s possessions will be up for auction later this month, unless their attorney can stop it.
Alan Atkins, of A. Atkins Appraisal Corporation, predicted the forced sale of the family’s items will only total $51,160. It’s rather sad to read the list of items up for sale: children’s toys, tires, mirrors, rugs, and even a $750 lot of costume jewelry. The couple’s wedding bands were also appraised with Teresa’s 14 kt. yellow gold band at $150 and her husband’s 14 kt. white gold band set at $240. Who would want to buy those?

I do feel bad for Teresa, but my heart really goes out to the kids. Teresa and Joe should have lived within their means and they wouldn’t have had to go through all of this. Coulda, woulda, shoulda.
The auction is set for August 22nd at noon EST. Wish I could be there just to see some drama!
