You'd think some time behind bars would change a girl.

Nope, not when it comes to Teresa Giudice.  The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is facing up to $1000 in daily fines for failing to provide documents needed in her bankruptcy case.

According to Radar Online, Giudice is once again approaching matters of the law with a seemingly "whatever" attitude.

The reality star was served with several subpoenas last month, yet still hasn't brought forth the relevant material that was needed by July 13th (almost a week ago).

A trustee involved in the case asked a judge to find Giudice in contempt of court as a result of her failure to provide necessary documents.

According to the trustee, Giudice was supposed to hand over copies of her and husband Joe's federal and state tax returns from 2012 to 2015.  

Additionally she was to provide their bank account statements dating back to 2015, as well as copies of employment contracts dating as far back as 2012.

Since Giudice hasn't provided any of these documents, the trustee requested that the judge fine Giudice $1,000 for every day that she fails to bring forth the records.

Giudice is currently embroiled in a malpractice lawsuit against her ex-lawyer after she was found guilty of fraud (which resulted in her jail sentence).

Radar reported last week that Giudice showed up at court on July 11th to ask that a judge "enforce her bankruptcy lawsuit settlement in order to block the case’s trustee from backing out of their original agreement."

The court documents stated that Giudice requested a mediation, but the the trustees refused. 

Back in April, the trustee claimed that Guidice had already received "ample reimbursements" from the malpractice lawsuit, and there would like the case reopened.

Attorney James Kridel is the target of the Guidices' lawsuit for "legal malpractice and breach of fiduciary duty in connection with his presentation in the bankruptcy case."
