I hear the producers are already trying to get shooting permits behind bars!
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe are facing over 50 years in prison if convicted of the 39-count indictment brought against them on Monday (July 29th) by U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman. According to TMZ, the couple defrauded the IRS and several banks from 2001-2008.
The Giudices allegedly conspired to illegally obtain mortgages and loans from multiple banks by intentionally overestimating their incomes to get more money. They are also being accused of withholding vital information about their net worth after filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2009 -- including how much Teresa was being paid for appearing on the Bravo reality show. The husband and wife are also being charged with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. Neither Teresa nor Joe have been arrested but they are expected in court this morning (July 30th.)
