"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice says she's NOT a dirty, scheming liar who falsely claimed to be a realtor in 2005 just to get a bank loan.

Teresa -- along with her hubby Joe -- just left court in NJ where the couple pled not guilty to 2 new bank fraud charges stemming from allegations they filed a false application to get a $361k mortgage loan.

In the docs, officials say Teresa claimed she was employed as a realtor and made $15k per month. In fact, officials say, Teresa was "not employed outside the home at the time.”
 
If convicted, T and J could face up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine.

The new counts bring the total criminal charges against the couple to 41 -- ranging from conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud to bank fraud, bankruptcy fraud and making false statements.

I do think they both need to go to jail.. They really lied a lot to get that money, and that's someone else that gets f--ked when they do that.. I'm sick of these people and sick of seeing them on Bravo they should have been fired.

These 2 are good people, Joe builds the best houses in Jersey and he makes good wine. Teresa is loved and admired by millions . Joe has only had his drivers lic suspended 47 times.and he was given permission to sigh his partners name and the notary name. When the truth comes out T & Juicy will be vindicated as T has promised.

What really GETS me,
Is Bravo keeps them on the show (for ratings), pays her $60...0,000 for the season, which allow them to stay in the home they got illegally !!! This is an insult to every hard working person in this Country!
Now, her children will be able to watch their patents GOING DOWN, and off to prison ! What kind of parents would do that to their children ? A money, hungry, fame obsessed horrible parents, that's who !!!!

Watch Bravo dump them as soon as their convicted (and they will be ), stating they don't associate with crimminal's !!!

This just proves - crime does not pay, and Karma is a bitch. Waiting to watch their JUST reward, total financial ruin and long jail time ! They deserve it

receive., Including their freedom. Karma is a bitch

I think prison would do wonders for both of them! She is in DEEP denial that she did anything wrong and he's just so arrogant. They never figured they would get caught and weren't smart enough to realize that when they withdrew the bankruptcy petition, it would raise all sorts of red flags. I can see Teresa flipping on Joe so that she can be on house arrest or probation and be able to stay with her kids. Joe is going down. Someone is going to jail and it's pretty obvious that she's not smart enough to figure out how to commit fraud on the level that they did.

Was pretending to be rich worth it to you two? The mansion, the expensive clothing and shoes, the over priced furniture, was it all worth pretending to be something you are not on a Trash TV show?

The kids get to suffer because of the parent's poor choices.
