14 Shocking Celebrity Net Worths - The Poor Edition

Celebrities are supposed to be rich. If they aren't rich, they can't afford all the items that make them so intriguingly remote: youth everlasting and designer clothes from this year's collection. So what happens to their celebrity when they lose all their money? For some, it dwindles altogether. A few of the celebrities on the following list had to get day jobs just to make ends meet. They certainly couldn't afford this year's designer collection (but you'll find them rifling through the half-off bin at your local H&M).

These celebrities lost their money for a variety of reasons. Oftentimes, it was related to court battles, which sucked them totally dry. For a few others, it was because they developed certain bad habits and they couldn't curb their impulse control until poverty did it for them, and even then... The rest of them just could not longer get work and cruised on royalties until TBS or some other D-list channel cancelled re-runs and all of sudden their monthy check hit menopause.

What we all know for sure is this: if you asked your average person how much money one of these celebrities has, he or she would grossly overestimate it. That's the one thing we tried to preserve in our research. These are celebrities who most people would say has millions, but for who that is sometimes sorely inaccurate.

Ready? Let's hop right in, to the 14 celebrities POORER than you'd think.

1 Teresa Giudice - Bankrupt

Teresa Giudice, of Real Housewives of New Jersey fame, and her husband have been battling foreclosure on their redone mansion for years. But it looks as though the bank is about to finally collapse on them. They simply cannot afford their lifestyle anymore. They tried to sell it for a couple of million dollars, but there were no takers. Perhaps they simply couldn't divert much energy into the process, because they were federally indicted and imprisoned during their bankruptcy proceedings. Uh-oh. Although Giudice will be released from prison to the address of the contested house during the filming of the new seasons of Housewives, she'll have a lot less money than ever before.
