The reality star goes on a buying bender just days after filing for bankruptcy, spending over $8,000 on curtains alone!

It seems like Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice‘s bankruptcy, as well as the possible auction of the contents of her New Jersey McMansion, is having absolutely no effect on her — she went on a $60,000 shopping spree just days after filing for bankruptcy! The New York Post reports, “receipts show that within days of filing to wipe out their multimillion-dollar debt, the Giudices blew $8,800 for curtains and nearly $45,000 on wall hangings, mirrors, frames, tables, urns and chairs.”

Even the Giudice’s lawyer was at a loss to explain his clients’ actions as he tried to convince a judge to put off the upcoming auction at the Giudice’s home. In the end the date was moved back from Aug. 22 to Oct. 3.

Shopoholic, cookbook author, and tanning saloon spokesperson Teresa and hubby Joe filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, owing close to $11 million to various creditors. It is good to see the two, who utilize a reality program to flaunt their lavish lifestyle, are taking this matter so seriously.

The paper notes Joe was none to happy with the media attention following the hearing yesterday, responding to questions with a charming, “None of your business! Back off before I get pissed!” Maybe you shouldn’t have signed up for a reality show pal.
