Subtext of the Giudice family Christmas card: We’re not guilty! Everything’s great! We’re still rich enough to afford a field full of poinsettias. Frightening.
Teresa Giudice, everyone’s favorite New Jersey housewife, was smacked with even more federal fraud charges this week along with her husband. The Feds indicted Teresa and her husband Joe Giudice on one count of bank fraud and one of loan application fraud. That second charge refers to a mortgage loan application on which the couple falsely stated that Teresa made $15,000 a month as a real estate agent. (In reality, she had no job at all.) The new charges come on top of July’s 39-count indictment for fraud, tax evasion, allegedly withholding financial information, and trying to illegally obtain mortgages and loans by inflating their incomes. The Giudices plead not guilty in August, and apparently plan to do so for these new charges as well. A trial is scheduled for February 24 of next year. The couple faces up to 50 years in prison.
