Back in July, Teresa and Joe Giudice of Real Housewives of New Jersey were indicted on charges of tax fraud. Fans were shocked. But poor Giudices, because according to a press release, the couple has just been charged with two more charges to add onto the already long list, this time on one count of bank fraud and one count of loan application fraud. Uh oh.

According to the indictment, Teresa and Joe got a $300,000 loan in the summer of 2005 which they falsely obtained—the couple claimed that Teresa was working and making $15,000 a month, when really she wasn’t working at all at the time.

Teresa and Joe will return to court on November 20 (that’s tomorrow) to discuss the new charges. Each is bringing his/her own lawyer, which is interesting to note, too…

The maximum charge for these two counts would be 30 years in prison and $1 million fine! Pretty sure it won’t come to that though.
