The ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ stars have been served with a foreclosure notice on their Montville home. The foreclosure process can take up to a year.

When NJ Advance Media revealed that the bank holding the mortgage on the Montville Township mansion of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” stars Joe and Teresa Giudice planned to foreclose and that their Jersey Shore house was scheduled for a sheriff’s sale next month, it drove home the couple’s dire financial straits.  

How did they get there? 

The couple had filed for bankruptcy in October 2009, revealing $13.4 million in debts. The bankruptcy trustee representing their creditors alleged the couple hid assets and income in their filing, and in 2011 Joe Giudice pleaded the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination when questioned about the matter. 

He and Teresa soon

Readers sound off on the news that the summer home of ‘Real Housewives’ stars Teresa and Joe Giudice will be auctioned off by the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office.

Here’s one of the few guarantees in life these days: If the topic of conversation is the real estate foibles of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” stars Joe and Teresa Giudice, readers are going to have plenty to say.

NJ Advance Media broke the news on Monday that the Giudice’s summer home in Manahawkin would be auctioned off by the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office on May 19, with an opening bid of $100. (The final price is likely to be much higher.) Photos from the house – which the Guidices purchased in for $347,000 in 2005 — were of particular interest to readers.

As is usually the case with the reality television celebs, many had quibbles with the perhaps dubious interior design choices of Teresa and Joe.

A foreclosure notice was filed for Teresa and Joe Giudice’s Montville Township home last week

You can buy a little slice of the ”Real Housewives of New Jersey” dream: The canal-front Manahawkin home owned by Teresa Giudice and featured on the reality show will be auctioned off by the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office on May 19.

Giudice, currently serving a 15-month federal sentence for bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, purchased the 1,350-square-foot home in 2005 for $347,000. She and husband Joe renovated the five-bedroom, two-bath house twice — once before and once after Hurricane Sandy — and listed it last year for $315,000, a few weeks before their sentencing on the federal fraud charges, part of which stemmed from their failed 2009 bankruptcy. The listing was removed earlier this month. 

According to their bankruptcy filing, the couple took out three mortgages on the Sylvia Lane house. America’s Servicing Company holds the first mortgage and initiated the foreclosure proceeding. A call to the firm representing the company did not get returned.

Staffordsmith said the suspect, who is believed to be in his late teens, held up a small pocketknife and demanded money from
