The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Giudice, has always brought the drama, but fans want to know whether she is still in debt or not.

Teresa Giudice has been on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey since the very beginning! In fact, Giudice is actually one of the few remaining original full-time housewives on the network, a title only Teresa, Ramona Singer, and Kyle Richards have.

Despite showcasing her extravagant and luxurious lifestyle on the beginning seasons of RHONJ, things quickly took a turn for Teresa and her husband, Joe Giudice, when it was revealed that they had committed quite a lot of federal crimes. The duo was charged with 39 counts of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, loan application fraud, and bankruptcy fraud.

In 2016, both Teresa and Joe pleaded guilty to fraud charges and faced a collective 4 years of prison time! Teresa served 11 of her 15-month sentence, while Joe was behind bars for over 3 years and spent an additional 6 months in an ICE facility. During Joe’s time in prison, Teresa paid off the couple’s restitution, which amounted to nearly $500,000!

The star has appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, where she let Cohen know that all of the fees, bills, and money owed to the government has since been paid off, bringing about a sense of relief for Teresa and her family. Although she did what she had to do, countless sources still claim that the Giudice’s are millions in debt.

According to CelebrityNetWorth, Teresa is $11 million IN DEBT! While this figure has been around since she and Joe found themselves in financial trouble over 5 years ago, fans believe that she is no longer in as deep a hole as she once was. While Teresa may have some existing debts to pay off, particularly when it comes to her mansion in New Jersey, her salary and income from appearances, and being a New York Times Best Seller has certainly helped.

Fans are also certain that the family is doing much better financially, considering the amount of designer and luxury goods the Giudice family parades on Instagram. From Gucci sweater, Dior handbags, all the way to Chanel sunglasses, Teresa and her four daughters are always decked out in head to toe designer, leaving many to assume that they are back to being rich!
