After pleading guilty to a fraud scheme, “Real Housewives of New Jersey” stars Joe and Teresa Giudice have put their ornate suburban mansion on the market for $3.999 million.
The custom-built home in Towaco is lavishly decorated with marble floors, custom moldings and lots and lots of chandeliers. The front door opens to two gold-trimmed Cinderella staircases under a massive crystal chandelier. (Click here or on an image for a slideshow.)
Upstairs, a girl’s bedroom is painted bright pink and outfitted with a cheetah-print sofa and a poster that says “Be Fabulous.” The Giudices have four daughters.
Much of the “Housewives” plot surrounding Teresa and Joe has centered on their money troubles, but it all came to a head last year when the couple were indicted on a long list of fraud charges.
They made a deal with the feds this spring, and now both are headed to prison — Teresa for a maximum of 27 months, and Joe for a maximum of 46 months. Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 2.
Here's a video report from March about the Giudices' court case:
