Joe Mastropole, the man who won a court order against the hubby of broke Real Housewives of New Jersey “star” Teresa Giudice has told us that he doubts he’ll ever get the $260,000 owed to him.
Joe Mastropole, fraud victim
A New Jersey judge found Joe Giudice, 40, forged Joe Mastropole’s signature on mortgage documents in order to take out another loan and pocket $1 million. Teresa Giudice had testified last month that she had no idea her husband had declared bankruptcy and claims against her were dismissed last month by the judge.

For Mastropole, however, the ruling was bittersweet; “I’m disappointed because she’s (Teresa) the one making income and his money is fraudulent, untraceable and untaxed.”
“She’s the only one bringing money in right now… You can’t really go after him.” Said Mastropole: “Even though I’m an exception to his discharge, I think his money is untraceable so it will be hard for me to recover any debt.”
Judge Morris Stern concluded that the money owed to Mastropole should be excepted from the Guidice’s bankruptchy discharge. The Joo-dices, who are almost $11 million in debt, filed for Chapter 7 in October 2009.
