Teresa Giudice, Joe Giudice

It looks like Joe Giudice is going to deal with his debts, after all.

At least, that's the impression he's giving.

Nearly a year after Real Housewives of New Jersey reality star Teresa Giudice and her husband both filed for bankruptcy, Joe has decided to withdraw his efforts to wipe his hands clean of millions in liabilities. 

Apparently, Joe was starting to feel the heat when he began being questioned by the trustee of his creditors about assets, income and business interests and opted to invoke the Fifth Amendment after consulting with a criminal defense lawyer, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.

"The defendant Giuseppe Giudice acknowledges his desire to resolve the matter without the need for further inquiry or litigation, and without making any further admissions," the court papers read.

Meanwhile, Joe's wife Teresa has yet to abandon her bankruptcy case, despite the fact that the same trustee who was suspicious of Joe's finances is also opposed to clearing her debt.

Stay tuned!
