Teresa Giudice Dishes on Her Bankruptcy Struggles and the Sincere Apologies She’s Offered Her Castmates

Teresa Giudice may often give off the impression that everything in her life is going great, but between filing for bankruptcy and her husband serving time in jail, we doubt she’s having an easy time.

Teresa is usually one to sluff off her struggles, but she wrote candidly about her difficulties in her blog.

First off, Teresa tackles the bankruptcy situation, citing the rough economy as a reason for her family’s financial distress.

“When our tenants couldn't pay their mortgage, we couldn't pay the building mortgage," she wrote. We filed for bankruptcy, and the amount was huge because it included the full mortgage on several buildings.”

Despite the setback, Teresa insists that she and her husband were able to pay off their debts and are now in a much better place.

“The banks were able to sell our buildings, which was most of our debt, so we withdrew our bankruptcy petition and are working on paying off the rest of our debt ourselves,” she continued.

Teresa also addresses some of her questionable behavior so far this season, saying that the stress of her home life sometimes got the best of her.

“While I was going through a very difficult period in my life last year, we filmed Seasons 3 and 4 back-to-back," she writes. "It was rough, and looking back, there are definitely situations that I would have handled differently.”

“All I can do is apologize, learn from them, and move on,” she continued.

While many of her castmates were unimpressed with the apology Teresa offered during the April 29 episode, Teresa claims she has apologized to those she’s hurt on numerous occasions, writing, “I have personally and sincerely apologized to everyone on the show more times than I can count.”

Most recently, Teresa apologized to former friend Jacqueline Laurita in a magazine. Somehow we don’t think that was the sincere apology Jac had in mind ...
