The Real Housewives of New Jersey star explains away her recent monetary problems in a blog on Bravo’s website – and says she isn’t going to let this bring her down
Teresa Giudice, we love your attitude. You’re going through a horrific financial situation after filing for bankruptcy last October, but yet, you’re still holding your head high. You know life WILL go on.
“All I can do is rise above it, keep my head high, and know that at the end of the day, I have my family, my health, and I’m in God’s hands,” the 38-year-old reality star wrote in a new blog on Bravo’s Web site. “Nothing else matters, certainly not a lamp.”
She added optimistically, ““[My husband Joe and I] got new jobs, and are working hard once again.”
Teresa explained her situation, saying that she and her hubby invested in “real estate deals gone bad in a bad economy,” and said that “we didn’t spend millions of dollars on gold toilets or private planes. We bought buildings, fixed them up. The economy crash trickled down to everyone….We worked so hard for so many years and it was heartbreaking to file [for bankruptcy], and not something we took lightly.”
The star filed for bankruptcy in the amount of $11 million and new documents that were filed on June 30 suggest the family have been hiding their true financial records.
