Looks like some celebs are in the hot seat.
First up, the recent charges against Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe. A 39-count indictment was announced on Monday against the couple, accusing them of bank fraud, tax evasion and more. If convicted, the two could both face up to 30 years in prison.
Alicia Quarles phoned in from the East Coast to give us details on the hearing. The couple showed up at the courthouse, swarmed by paparazzi. Although Joe slapped a photographer's camera upon his arrival, he left the courthouse with his wife and parents in stony silence.
Teresa and Joe are being legally represented by individual attorneys, so does that mean one might admit to the charges while the other goes free? How will this incident play into the Bravo series storyline? Although Melanie believes this would generate excitement for the show, there could be complicated legal issues involved.
