The Real Housewives of New Jersey are no strangers to the world of publishing. In fact, more than half of them have are published authors. (Or about to be. Kathy Wakile's upcoming recipe tome, Indulge: Delicious Little Desserts That Keep Life Real Sweet isn’t out quite yet).

But, out of the three whose books have already been printed — Melissa Gorga, Caroline Manzo, and Teresa Giudice — who has sold the most copies? According to Naughty But Nice Rob, there's a pretty big gap between the bestselling author and the other two.

Not surprisingly, Teresa leads the pack with her cookbook, while Melissa trails 32,000 copies behind her sister-in-law, and Caroline is another 2,000 behind Melissa.

Here are the stats, per the website: "Teresa Giudice has sold more than 40,000 copies of Fabulicious!Love Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage by Melissa Gorga sold only 8,000, and Let Me Tell You Something by Caroline Manzo sold only 6,000 copies."

Even though Teresa easily takes top billing among the Jersey gals, however, that doesn't mean she's been the most successful Housewife writer out there… not by a long shot. There is one other former Housewife from New York City who has Teresa beat big time: Bethenny Frankel!

According to Naughty But Nice…, "Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting has sold more than 200,000 copies!"

Wow!
