Teresa of the Real Housewives of New Jersey and her husband Joe of Montiville Township, N.J., have been charged with a 39-count indictment with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud and making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud. 


Joe Giudice also failed to file tax returns for the years 2004 through 2008, when he is alleged to have earned nearly $1 million, the government said.

The couple will face more than 50 years in prison each if convicted.
