auction 'Real Housewives' Bankruptcy: Auction house charging $300 admissionAt least “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice‘s estate is having a high-end bankruptcy auction. It even costs $300 to go to it. That’s gotta be something to be proud of.

A.J. Willner Auctions is handling the Aug. 22 sale of the Giudice’s fancy furnishings and expensive personal property. Most of it is familiar to fans of  “Real Housewives.”

But the auction house, which also conducted the 2007 sale of assets from Whitney Houston‘s tour,  has devised a way to weed out curious fans who just want to gawk, not buy.

order to come onto the property, you’ll have to register,” auction house manager Harry Byrnes explains to
“Registration requires a name, address and phone number, plus a $300
deposit towards purchases. That gets you into the venue. If you don’t
buy anything, obviously you get your $300 back.”

Items up for auction include: Wood-trimmed sofas with leather and fabric upholstery, a suit of armor, an ornate Greek Revival table, and a ginormous gilt-framed mirror, a grand piano, a high-end foosball table, a pool table, a snow plow, a jet boat, and a 48-inch stainless steel Wolf range. giudice 'Real Housewives' Bankruptcy: Auction house charging $300 admission Check out the full 12-page list including dishes, costume jewelry, wedding bands, tools, computers, BBQ grill, baby furniture, rugs,  42-inch LCD TVs and so much more.
