They may have pleaded not guilty this week to federal fraud charges, but Teresa Giudice and husband Joe are totally guilty in the eyes of Bravo...
... of guaranteeing the network gargantuan ratings!
Sources have confirmed that shooting on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 has started early in order for cameras to film every ounce they can of this sordid legal saga.
So far, it has included two trips to a courthouse; a vacation in The Hamptons; and a nightclub appearance in Florida.
What if Teresa is placed under house arrest? Have no worries: Bravo will film all the exciting action inside her residence, according to network insiders.
And what if Teresa is forced to wear an ankle bracelet? Just imagine how she could accessorize it! The possibilities are endless
Both Teresa and Joe have said their relationship is solid and the latter's lawyer scoffed at rumors that Joe may actually testify against his wife when the case goes to trial on October 8.
The Giudices are accused of lying about their assets when filing for bankruptcy and of obtaining mortgages and other loans under false financial pretenses.
They are facing 39 counts of fraud and decades in prison if convicted.
