Birth Name: Teresa Giudice
Born: 05/18/1972
Birth Place: Paterson, New Jersey, USA

The group returned for a second season in 2010, when Giudice and Staub's hatred for each other reached an all-time high that resulted in the latter quitting the series. That same year also saw Giudice and her husband filing bankruptcy for a reported $8.7 million in liabilities, including $20,000 owed to stores such as Bloomingdale's and Neiman Marcus. The news sent shockwaves across the "Housewives" landscape as the series highlighted the luxurious lifestyles of the women it featured. It also turned Giudice into a tabloid fixture, which helped boost publicity for her New York Times best-selling cookbook Skinny Italian: Eat It and Enjoy It: Live La Bella Vita and Look Great, Too! (2010). Giudice returned for a third season of "Housewives" which saw her constantly at war with sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. By the time the season concluded, Giudice was feuding with all her co-stars, including former friend Caroline Manzo, whom she insulted in her second book Fabulicious (2011) by describing her as "as Italian as the Olive Garden." Before starting new drama on a fourth season of "Housewives," Giudice joined the 2012 cast of Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice" (NBC, 2004- ) alongside Clay Aiken, Adam Carolla and Cheryl Tiegs.
