TERESA GIUDICE: Filming Real Housewives of New Jersey…

December 2, 2012  

From SH September 4, 2012… 

Seems that Elvira thought that her businesses were going to be big moneymakers… party planning and SpaceOdyssey.   Apparently, things did not go as planned for Elvira…

Elvira Grau, the Englewood-based party planner who appeared on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” and her husband have lost their $3 million Cresskill home to foreclosure.  It’s one of a growing number of high-end foreclosures — a sign that housing distress is not limited to lower-income neighborhoods.

Elvira and James Grau own Space Odyssey, a former warehouse in Englewood that they bought in 2005 and turned into a 26,000-square-foot entertainment venue. Elvira Grau made an appearance on “The Real Housewives” reality show in 2010, planning a party for one of the show’s stars, Teresa Giudice. But the Graus were apparently not able to keep up with the $17,500 monthly payments.

Back in 2010… Tree visits Elvira’s home to see how Elvira lives…  

UPDATE:   Elvira Grau is back on the RHONJ.  WHY?  ‘Cause Elvira got on the Hurricane Sandy train and held a fundraiser at Space Odyssey…

NOTE:  If every person claiming to be a NEW Housewife in the New Jersey franchise were REALLY a NEW Housewife, there wouldn’t be any room in the cast photo!
