I Never Lied About Being a Realtor

"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.

Easy to prove because their income tax filings would show her $15,000 a month income, right? LOL

Don't know exactly what they are guilty of. But there has been something shady about this all along. I don't buy that Teresa didn't know anything and was not a party to any of these shena****ns. There are just too many counts. She had to have signed do***ents for some of this stuff. If she didn't bother to read anything age was signing or ask any questions she should go to jail for stupidity. I have watched RHONJ since the beginning. The arrogance of how she and her husband behave is horrible. They also look down on people that don't have money. Sad that the kids are going to have their parents taken away from them. How the mighty have fallen. Andy you and bravo need to walk away from this couple now, while there is still some dignity to be had. If you wait to long it could ruin and taint all the housewife franchises.

I think people should just let it play out in court. Teresa had a real estate license at one time under the name Teresa Gorga according to the State of New Jersey New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance website. Whether or not she was earning 15K a month should have been investigated by the bank. Now if she gave the bank fake paystubs and bank statements saying she was earning 15K a month then that will definitely come up in court. I think these two should think about their children and if they are really guilty they should work out a plea deal or start moving to Croatia since there is no extradition treaty there.

Banks need supporting do***ents before they will give a loan. They require tax returns from multiple years and pay stubs...I call bull****.
