Teresa Giudice is embroiled in tax legal battles at the moment, but it won’t stop her from setting a good example about being a businesswoman.

Wait… what?!

Yup, that’s right! As soon as the Real Housewives star left court, she headed straight to her book signing to make more taxable ca$$$h.

And she said that she hopes her four daughters "follow in her footsteps":

"I’m not going to stop working. It’s a good example to show to my daughters that Mommy’s a business woman and hopefully they’ll follow in my footsteps."

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionLegal MattersBusted!Sad SadTax TroubsDolce & Gabbana

Dolce & Gabbana may no longer exist if they're forced to pay their hefty tax evasion fine!

They say two things are certain in life: death and taxes.

But we never would've guessed that taxes could mean certain death for Dolce & Gabbana!!!

Domenico Dolce and Sefano Gabbana are in an ongoing legal battle over tax evasion charges after being found guilty last month.

In addition to the 20 month jail sentence (which they'll never serve), the designing duo were fined $440 million, but if the verdict is not overturned and they're forced to pay up, they’ll have to shut down their world-wide fashion empire!!

Dolce seems to have already given up, saying:

NFLer Terrell Owens Pays His Taxes…FINALLY!!!

terrell owens pays tax debt

Yay for doing the right thing!

You may remember that Terrell Owens had a little trouble with Uncle Sam earlier this year, but he’s finally manned up and taken care of it.

The NFLer owed $430,000 in taxes, so they put a tax lien on him, but that that’s all over now!

Owens paid his debt and as of June 27th, he and the IRS are a-okay!

Which is good news for T.O. because it’s hard to revive an NFL career when you’re behind bars.

lauryn hill tax evasion

Apparently, Lauryn Hill and taxes do not mix. But unfortunately for her, that’s not really an option.

The former Fugees singer, who has been looking at three years in prison due to tax evasion, could in fact avoid her time inside thanks to a $1 million Sony record deal.

Lauryn owes close to $504,000 in federal taxes on her $1.8 million income earned between 2005 and 2007. But things were looking up at her Monday proceeding in Newark, New Jersey.

Assistant US Attorney Sandra Moser said that Lauryn’s five song Sony deal could be the solution. Judge Madeline Cox decided to postpone the singer’s sentencing until May 6th, giving her the added time to pay off her taxes. The Judge said:
