We’re pretty sure Teresa Giudice did the same at first…
…but the bad history of the Real Housewives’ money matters isn’t stopping Jacqueline Laurita from claiming she’s financially sound!
After rumors came out she was failing to pay her taxes and facing foreclosure on her home, she stepped up to shut those down.
Classic Housewives move!
Without denying sort of owing taxes, Jacqueline has explained why things have gone unpaid:
“My husband and I have always filed and paid our taxes every year. We have never evaded taxes. The $340k was from a tax audit in 2006 in which about 1/2 of that was added interest. We have been disputing this because we didn’t think it was fair to pay so much interest on something that we didn’t even know we owed until recently. The IRS is currently working with us to lower the amount owed and once that new amount is decided we will, of course, pay the amount.”
A reality TV star actually admitting to owing money?!
This might be a first…but things weren’t so easy to discuss when it came to the foreclosure deets.
“Thank you for all who were concerned, but my house is NOT in foreclosure. There is no threat of losing it. We simply modified our mortgage which is a process … Our mortgage modification has been approved and all is good.”
Uh…this sounds like something Teresa said at one point before things became a hot money mess.
Or maybe it was Alexis Bellino who said this about one of her many houses??
Yeah, we have a hunch modification might be Housewives code for something worse!
