Giudices facing more federal fraud charges
Two stars of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" are facing additional federal fraud charges, The Associated Press reports. Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice, 43, and Teresa Giudice, 41, were each indicted yesterday on one count of bank fraud and one count of loan application fraud. Authorities allege the couple prepared a mortgage loan application stating that Teresa Giudice worked as a real estate agent and made $15,000 a month. In reality, authorities said, she was not employed. The charges are in addition to a 39-count indictment handed down in July, charging the couple with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.
