TRENTON -- Imprisoned "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice will give the federal government a 2005 Maserati and 25 percent of any money she gets from the Bravo network to help satisfy a court judgment against her and her husband.

The government also will get half the rent from a home in Lincoln Park and the furnishings of the couple's home in Montville, according to consent orders filed Friday by the U.S. Attorney's Office.

The money and property will go toward a $415,589 judgment imposed after the couple pleaded guilty last year to federal fraud charges for concealing income and lying during bankruptcy proceedings.

Giudice is serving a 15-month prison sentence at a prison camp facility in Danbury, Connecticut. Once she's released, her husband will start serving his 41-month sentence.
