Teresa Giudice is facing problems that go far beyond mere table flips and cocktail party fights.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her husband Joe have been indicted on 39 counts and appeared yesterday in federal court to face charges that include bank fraud and wire fraud.

They are now free on $500,000 bond and Teresa's lawyer says his client is trying to remain "calm, cool and collected" in the face of such woes.

On Way to Federal Court

"She's been through a lot, as everybody who watches the show knows," Henry E. Klingeman told Us Weekly. "[There have been] challenges, both personal and professional, and she deals with them in due course and she'll deal with this one."

This is the first, of course, that involves a possible 50-year prison sentence.

Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice walked hand-in-hand this morning into a Newark, New Jersey courtroom to answer charges levied against them yesterday by a federal prosecutor.

The reality stars are facing the possibility of 50 years in prison for counts that range from mail and bank fraud to lying about their income when applying for bankruptcy.

Witnesses tell Us Weekly that Teresa and Joe were "very solemn" throughout the hearing, looking "professional" as they appeared before Judge Cathy Waldor.

Teresa Giudice and her husband are in major trouble with the law.

U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced today a 39-count indictment against The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple, alleging that the Giudices defrauded the IRS and a number of banks over an seven-year period that started in 2001.

According to the legal filings, Teresa and Joe schemed to illegally obtain mortgages and other loans from various banks by purposely overestimating their incomes in order to garner more cash.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey are "On Thin Guid-Ice" as the retreat continues. We recap the drunken hugs and apologies in our THG +/- review.

Dr. V score some points as she quickly reduces Joe Gorga and Teresa Guidice to sobbing puddles. Plus 12. That didn't take long at all.

Hug It Out

But I wouldn't expect tearful hugs from everyone.

The good doctor marches back downstairs for her next victim and assures them all that she's not murdering anyone upstairs.  I don't think some in that crowd would have a problem if she were.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey gives us "Scum One, Scum All" as the team builders run for cover. We recap all the therapy and mysterious black tar in our THG +/- review.

We pick up right where we left off with Joe Gorga calling sister Teresa Giudice scum. Minus 20. That really was out of line.


Sexy Time

Then Tre runs out to Juicy Joe who storms in looking for a fight but before he gets halfway there, Gorga charges him like a bull in a pasture.

Minus 30 because I can't tell what there's more of in that room, testosterone or stupidity.

Ugly fights are a standard on The Real Housewives of New Jersey but "When Joes Collide" might just deliver the knock out punch. We recap why everyone should just retreat in our THG +/- review.

The Gorgas, Giudices, and Wakiles head to upstate New York for a team building / conflict resolution retreat. What could possibly go wrong?

On Her Knees


Yes folks, that's a joke, because this thing never even stood a chance. But let's start with who bailed before it even got started.

Melissa Gorga is both in denial and in a rage.

On a recent episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the cast member's ex-BFF, Jan DeDolce, told a table full of females that Gorga cheated on husband Joe with an ex, claiming she gave him a blow job.

In response, Gorga makes it clear to Us Weekly: "I've never cheated on Joe."

  • Melissa Gorga, Husband
  • Teresa Giudice Smiles

But she also shows wrath not so much for DeDolce... but for sister-in-law Teresa Giudice.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey found Melissa Gorga unknowingly "Drinking With the Enemy". We recap the liars, cheaters, and so-called friends in our THG +/- review

It all starts out innocent enough. Kathy's cooking in her test kitchen and Rosie's recounting how she had to pull her cartilage back into place after her meeting with Teresa.

Minus 10. Did we really need to hear about that?

Crazy Train to Jersey



Then Rosie shares Teresa's idea of a retreat between the Guidices and Gorgas and invites the others along.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey brought us "Everything Is Coming Up Rosie" but is an intervention led by the hot headed cousin really what they need?

We recap both the good advice and the asinine in our THG +/- review.

Rosie's Happy Face

Joe Gorga drives home from the gym still muttering curses at Teresa under his breath.

I'm not sure what he's more upset about, being told he's pussy whipped or finding out that Melissa tweeted something unkind about his sister.

Maybe Melissa isn't the angel he thinks she is.

Melissa's still working on her book, because who doesn't need advice on marriage from a Real Housewife? Plus 10 for talking to her family beforehand about putting her father's philandering past in the book but I wonder if she would have done it anyway even if they objected.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey gave us a confrontation between "Gym Rats." We recap the foul mouthed tirades and insults in THG's +/- review!

Angry Italians

Honestly, if you are buying a book from any of the Real Housewives for marriage advice, you should probably just file the divorce papers now.

Or admit yourself to the nearest asylum because that's just crazy. Minus 22.

Still, I'm sure Melissa Gorga's book on having a happy marriage will sell with words of wisdom from husband Joe like, "The sex is important."

Sort of gives credence to Filomena Guidice's words when she basically says that Melissa dresses like a prostitute. Maybe Joe picks out her clothes.
