Who wants a piece of a ‘Real Housewife’?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘ star Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe, who recently declared bankruptcy, are being forced to sell the contents of their Towaco, N.J., mansion at auction, Gawker reports.

The couple’s personal belongings will go to the highest bidder at 12 p.m. EST on August 22.

Among the items up for sale, according to an auction website, are: a grand piano, two flat-screen TVs, a Sea-Doo Bombardier X20 Jet Boat, a snow plow, a suit of armor, a stainless steel oven, a ceramic urn, a faux marble chess set, a foosball table, chandeliers and much more.

The auction is currently scheduled to take place on Aug. 22 at the reality star’s 10,000 square-foot home, but an attorney for the couple tells PEOPLE that he is appealing the decision.

Facing down a reported $11 million in debts, Teresa, 38, said in a statement after filing for bankruptcy that she was looking forward to “a fresh start.”
