Reality TV Stars Who Went Broke
Meanwhile, Staub's former co-star -- and nemesis -- Teresa Giudice has financial difficulties of her own. In 2010, she and her husband Joe faced foreclosure on their sprawling New Jersey mansion because they were $11 million in debt. The contents of her home were inventoried in anticipation of an auction, but at the eleventh hour, it was called off. Two years later, Teresa and Joe are still trying to resolve their issues in court, with Teresa recently saying on the show, "Going through this bankruptcy, if anything, made us stronger. It didn't break us." That isn't their own legal issue -- Joe will stand trial for fraud after using his brother's identification to try to get a driver's license when his own was suspended following a DUI arrest.
