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

), and a serious spending habit.
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

expenses, and assets. The couple is still bogged down in legal disputes
over their finances today.
