On the heels of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" reunion this week, Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe, have slashed the price of their home by $500,000. It's now listed at $3.499 million.
After pleading guilty to a money fraud scheme, the reality stars put their ornate suburban mansion on the market earlier this fall for an original asking price of $3.999 million.
The custom-built home in Towaco is lavishly decorated with marble floors, custom moldings and lots and lots of chandeliers. The front door opens to two gold-trimmed Cinderella staircases under a massive crystal chandelier.
Upstairs, a girl’s bedroom is painted bright pink and outfitted with a cheetah-print sofa and a poster that says “Be Fabulous.” The Giudices have four daughters.
Much of the “Housewives” plot surrounding Teresa and Joe has centered on their money troubles, but it all came to a head last year when the couple were indicted for a long list of fraud charges.
They made a deal with the feds this spring and now both are headed to prison — Teresa for a maximum of 27 months and Joe for a maximum of 46 months.
