Real Housewives Of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice, Husband Plead Not Guilty To Fraud Charges

Two stars of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” have pleaded not guilty to a number of federal fraud charges.

Teresa and Guiseppe “Joe” Giudice have appeared before a federal judge in Newark on Wednesday. Their pleas were entered by their attorneys.

They were charged last month in a 39-count indictment with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.
