  • TV personalities Joe Giudice and Teresa Giudice appear in court to face charges of defrauding lenders, illegally obtaining mortgages and other loans as well as allegedly hiding assets and income during a bankruptcy case on July 30, 2013 in Newark, United States.
“Real Housewives of New Jersey” stars Joe and Teresa Giudice are in deep doo-doo, and it couldn’t have happened to two nicer people (cough).

The garish couple surrendered to authorities on 39 counts of fraud and were released on $1 million bond after having their passports confiscated. According to the New York Daily News, they are accused of inflating their income on loan applications and then “hiding how well they were doing” during their bankruptcy filing.

You might remember that Joe already got in trouble for forging his business partner’s signature on a mortgage document in 2007.

The couple is facing up to 50 years in the slammer. All of America wants to see them punished but it’s sad to think of their children, who despite being the spawn of spray-tanned wildebeests have turned out pretty cool so far.
