It's no secret that Joe and Teresa Giudice's financial affairs are a hot topic of interest in the world of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. But with Teresa constantly tweeting about the success of her recipe book, we're thinking the infamous cookbook must be making her a pretty penny... or is it?

According to Rich But Broke, Teresa is worth — wait for it — almost 12 million dollars in the negative. That's 12 million in debt, people. Puts those college loans into perspective, right? Apparently, Tre's lifestyle costs her about 500 grand a year.

Still, the article claims that Skinny Italian is one of the few things bringing in some badly needed cash into the Giudice household. Thank goodness for Sunday sauce!
