Teresa Giudice is used to being surrounded by drama on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but when we learned that Teresa and her husband Joe were indicted recently on 39 counts of possible fraud, fans were left wondering how the family is holding up. Despite the seriousness of the charges, Giudice is reportedly remaining calm, cool, and collected!
Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe were recently charged with 39 counts of fraud, including: conspiracy to commit bank fraud, mail fraud, bankruptcy fraud, tax evasion, wire fraud and false information on loan applications. Despite the serious situation, Giudice, who is used to dealing with drama on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, is remaining calm – or at least as calm as she can be given the situation.
“She’s been through a lot, as everybody who watches the show knows. There have been challenges, both personal and professional, and she deals with them in due course and she’ll deal with this one,” Teresa’s attorney told US Weekly outside of the court house this week.
Meanwhile, Joe Giudice, who is not a U.S. citizen could face possible deportation if he is found guilty of the charges against him. But Joe’s attorney is very hopeful that he will able to prove his client’s innocence. However, attorney Paul Fishman, who initially brought the case to light, explained that the charges are very serious, claiming that this has been going on for a long time. “Their maximum penalties are in the hundreds of years,” Fishman explained, though the couple will likely not get that sentence.
Do you believe the Giudices’ claims of innocence? Did the couple commit fraud? Is it time to grow up and face the consequences for Teresa and Joe? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!
