by at . Comments

Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe entered a New Jersey courtroom today, pleading not guilty to federal fraud charges that could land them each in jail for up to 50 years.

The couple then exited the building holding hands, while attorney Miles Feinstein told the press:

“They vehemently deny their guilt. There's an assumption of innocence and they vehemently assert their innocence."

The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars are accused of lying about their income when applying for loans, while also hiding their assets when filing for bankruptcy years later.

Feinstein also referred to rumors that Joe would testify against Teresa as "ludicrous," while assuring fans that the couple will "definitely" attend the upcoming Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 5 reunion.

Thank goodness, right?

Following her arraignment, Giudice reportedly took part in a book signing for her latest cookbook, "Fabulicious: On the Grill."

And, in related news, anyone who actually attended said signing in Wayne, New Jersey REALLY ought to re-evaluate their life choices.
