If it’s Monday, it must mean more charges for the Giudices! Today they were both charged with two new counts in the Federal case.
According to NorthJersey,com:
The new indictment, returned by a federal grand jury against Teresa Giudice, 41, and her husband, Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice, 43, both of Towaco, adds two new counts against each defendant: one count of bank fraud and one count of loan application fraud.
If you are counting, that brings the total up to 41. I broke down the original 39 counts here. That posts explains in detail the question Teresa keeps asking about how this is happening to them.

Here is tea on the latest charges from ABC:
According to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Jersey, today’s “additional counts stem from a $361,250 mortgage loan that Teresa Giudice obtained in July 2005. In the course of obtaining the loan, she and (her husband) prepared a loan application which falsely stated that Teresa Giudice was employed as a realtor and that she had a monthly salary of $15,000. Teresa Giudice was not employed outside the home at the time.”
The new charges each carry possible maximum penalties of 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine. The couple is due back in court Wednesday to face another arraignment.
Seriously, how many mortgages did these two take out?
