Born to Italian parents and fluent in Italian, Teresa is a true guidette. She’s a former buyer for Macy’s who now has her own fashion and accessory line (TG Fabulicious Guidette), two New York Times bestselling cookbooks (Skinny Italian: Eat It and Enjoy It: Live La Bella Vita and Look Great, Too! and Fabulicious), and a serious spending habit.

Given her penchant for dropping G’s on luxury items, it came as no shock when she and her husband, “Juicy Joe,” filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in October 2009, claiming to be deep in debt. (We’re talkin’ $11 million in the hole.) However, the lawyer appointed by the court to oversee their case alleged that the couple had lied about their income, expenses, and assets. The couple is still bogged down in legal disputes over their finances today.
