Real Housewives Charges
Teresa Giudice, 41, right, and her husband Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice, 43, center, of Montville Township, N.J., walk toward Martin Luther King, Jr. Courthouse before a court appearance, Tuesday, July 30, 2013, in Newark, N.J. The two stars of the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" were indicted Monday on federal fraud charges, accused of exaggerating their income while applying for loans before their TV show debuted in 2009, then hiding their improving fortunes in a bankruptcy filing after their first season aired. They are charged in a 39-count indictment with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)
