Going broke didn’t cause Teresa Giudice to bat a false eyelash.

The ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey‘ star went on a $60,000 shopping spree within weeks of declaring bankruptcy, reports the New York Post.

In what appears to be one final hurrah, Giudice went on a buying frenzy last fall stocking up on home furnishings, according to court documents revealed Monday.

The deep-in-debt TV diva, who owes creditors around $11 million, reportedly purchased $8,800 worth of curtains and spent nearly $45,000 on (presumably tacky) items, such as wall hangings, mirrors, tables, urns and chairs, according to the Post.

Teresa and Joe Guidice, whose personal belongings are going up for auction, appeared in Newark federal court Monday to appeal the decision to sell off their stuff. The couple got a reprieve for now: the public sale was pushed back from August 22 to October 3.
