I think it's safe to say that Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe are no longer living the American dream.
The couple went from toasting in the comfort of their multi-million dollar home to facing serious jail time for various forms of fraud.
In addition to Teresa leaving her kids behind and Joe possibly being deported, the Giudices are alleged to have yet something else to worry about: They may be losing that multi-million dollar home after all!
A source told gossip site RadarOnline that the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star and her man are barely scraping by. In order to make ends meet, the reality TV stars may have to sell their luxurious home.
“Teresa has hardly any income coming in because of her guilty plea in the federal fraud and conspiracy case,” the source told Radar.

Apparently the money made from her family’s appearance on RHONJ is the only thing keeping the Giudice clan from living in a cardboard box, or even worse...a New Jersey apartment!
The source added that Teresa Giudice’s “book sales have been very low” and that she “hasn’t been offered any gigs for paid promotional appearances.”
The Giudices do have some good fortune in all this. They allegedly only have to pay back a paltry $7,500 of the more than $13 million debt the couple accrued through questionable means.
It’s also possible they will only face a couple of years of jail rather than decades.
Though the scandal and criminal trial has virtually wiped out their luxurious lifestyle, things could be (and probably should be) much worse for the reality TV couple.

When it's all over, they’ll have to try and make an honest living just like millions of other American households in a smaller home, possibly away from the limelight.
All things considered, it’s hard to feel terrible for these individuals.
Do you feel sorry for the RHONJ stars? Do you think they'll lose their home? Comment below!
