Things are getting very real for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Theresa Guidice and her husband Joe Guidice. According to US Weekly, the couple were charged yesterday and are being ‘accused of exaggerating their income while applying for loans before their show debuted in 2009, then hiding their improving fortunes in a bankruptcy filing after their first season aired. The spouses are also accused of submitting fraudulent mortgage and loan applications from 2001 to 2008.’
Both Theresa and Joe arrived at court for their bail hearing today where it was set at $500,000. Theresa released a statement to the magazine saying;
“Today is a most difficult day for our family. I support Joe and, as a wonderful husband and father, I know he wants only the best for our lovely daughters and me. I am committed to my family and intend to maintain our lives in the best way possible, which includes continuing my career. As a result, I am hopeful that we will resolve this matter with the government as quickly as possible.”
If convicted the Guidices could face up to 50 years in prison! Whoa! That is serious! I don’t watch the show so I don’t know anything about this couple, but for their sake I hope that they’re found not guilty!
