Man, it must REALLY suck to be rich! All that money and absolutely NO IDEA what to do with it! That's IT! Spend it all in one place, just like your mama said NOT to do!

While this certainly happens to regular people, when it happens to celebrities it's pretty epic. Watching stars who bring in millions and millions per picture have no money at all is sort of weird.

And yet, it happens. Often. Celebs file bankruptcy like some of us change our underwear. Maybe they wouldn't have to file bankruptcy if they bought normal-priced underwear?

Anyway.

Here are 11 stars who went broke (some will surprise you, some won't), because having a lot of money doesn't mean they know how to spend it wisely.

11 Stars Who Went Broke

Joe and Teresa Giudice are headed to jail but first they have to get their financial affairs in order...by screwing over their creditors to the tune of $13 million!

Teresa and Joe Giudice Head to Court

So how did the Real Housewives of New Jersey couple rack up such massive debt? By living like royalty despite the fact that they haven't had a dime to their names for years.

Court documents reveal that the Giudices live in a $1.7 million house with a Maserati, an Escalade and a Ford 350 in the garage.

Oh, that garage also houses toys such as a Sea Doo boat, Kawasaki quad and 2 go-carts.

As you may have guessed, Teresa and Joe have yet to make a single payment on most of those items and acquired them by lying to lenders - a practice that resulted in the couple's recent fraud convictions.

Earlier today, Teresa Giudice pleaded guilty to a series of fraud charges.

According to various reports, she now faces 21 to 27 months behind bars, while husband Joe Giudice - who also pleaded guilty inside a Newark courthouse - could be in jail for up to 46 months.

The stars were originally indicted on a total of 41 criminal charges last year  - yes, 41! - as a result of allegedly illegal actions that took place between 2001 and 2011.

Happy Thanksgiving, THGers, from our entire family to yours.

What would this uniquely American holiday be without family, food, football and appreciation for the things that matter most and what we've been given.

In THG's case, that means turkeys ... in more ways than one.

On this 28th of November, we're paying tribute to celebs we had the honor and the burden of covering in 2013. We're talking fowl individuals. Bird brains.

You get the idea. Here are our Top 10 Turkeys of 2013 ...

Spencer Pratt is a Turkey

Who will win THG's 7th Annual Spencer Pratt Thanksgiving Turkey Award!?

10 (tie). Donald Trump. It's not a matter of whether he'll make the list. Just where he falls on it. After a relatively quiet 2013, the Donald takes the #10 spot.

10 (tie). The X Factor. So much hype. Such a mediocre show.

9. Teresa Giudice. Mortgage fraud was so 2005. Who gets in trouble for that anymore? Reality stars who live beyond their means? Okay, makes sense.
