Giudice's current papers also quote the U.S. Trustee Complaint objecting to Giudice's bankruptcy discharge based on her book deal not being listed in her bankruptcy filing.

The filing also stated that Giudice had a business and a bank account into which "over $100,000 was deposited in the months" prior to her filing for bankruptcy.

Another charge by the Trustee's filing said Giudice's account statements revealed that her company TG Fabulicious, LLC "had total deposits of over $190,000 during the first three months" after she claimed bankruptcy.
