The 38-year-old mother of four -- whose palatial new home and cash-only shopping sprees are documented on her hit Bravo show -- addressed the talk in a statement to UsMagazine.com.

"While this is a personal matter, I realize that certain aspects of my private life will always be subject to scrutiny and distortion," Giudice says.

"What is true is that due to the economy, most of my husband's real estate ventures failed despite his hard work and effort. As a result, we looked to the Bankruptcy Court for a 'fresh start.'"

She continues: "When people fall, the way to success is to get up and learn from our mistakes. We are in that process."
