"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.

If this crazy Bitch gets time, I feel sorry for the inmates at whichever prison she goes to. Imagine being locked up with that screeching woman 24/7!

There is a lawyer or bank out there just trying to make a name for themselves.
People finagle all the time what they do and are even encouraged by the loaner to embellish the facts all the time. I don't blame them entirely but I think that the bank is a fault for not doing their job and checking facts before they hand a cent over. If it were your average Jo; I grantee that the bank knows their whole background before they even leave the office.
