>>> AS WE ALL KNOW ON “THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY” IT’S ALL ABOUT MONEY AND MELTDOWN. WE COULD BE ON THE VERGE OF A EPIC MELTDOWN. TWO STARS ON THE SHOW ARE ALLEGEDLY IN TROUBLE FOR NOT PLAYING FAIR WITH THEIR VERY REAL MONEY. THEY WERE IN COURT THIS MORNING. MICHELLE, THERE WERE JUST A FEW PEOPLE THERE WHEN THEY WALKED INTO COURT, RIGHT? . >> Reporter: ONE OR TWO OR 50. YOU KNOW, WHEN THEY WALKED INTO FEDERAL COURT THIS MORNING AND WALKED IN TO SEE THE JUDGE, THEY WERE VERY QUIET, THEY SAT RIGHT NOW. THEY DIDN’T SAY MUCH. THE ONLY THING THEY SPOKE TO WAS TO TELL THE JUDGE THEY DID UNDERSTAND THE CHARGES. BASICALLY THIS REALITY COUPLE’S REAL LIVE IS GETTING VERY REAL. >> Reporter: A REALITY SERIES THAT’S FAMOUS FOR BRINGING THE DRAMA. A U.S. DISTRICT HAS INDICTED THEM ON CHARGES.

THEY’RE ACCUSED OF EXAGGERATING THEIR INCOME ON A LOAN, THEN HIDING THEIR FORTUNES IN A BANKRUPTCY FILING AFTER THE FIRST SEASON AIRED. THE FEDERAL INDIAMOND ALLEGED THAT THE GIUDICES LIED TO THE BANKRUPTCY COURT, THE IRS, AND A NUMBER OF BANKS. UP TO 30 YEARS IN PRISON, AND A MILLION DOLLAR FINE IF CONVICTED. JOE GIUDICE WAS ALSO CHARGED WITH FAILURE TO FILED TAX RETURNS BETWEEN 2004 AND 2008, A TIME WHEN HE EARNED NEARLY 1 MILLION, ADDING TO AN ALREADY CHECKERED LEGAL PAST. >> WE’VE BEEN HEARING RUMBLINGS FOR YEARS, AND IT’S ALL COME TO A HUT WITH THESE LATEST CHARGES. HOWEVER, TERESA’S ATTORNEY TOLD CNN SHE WILL PLEAD NOT GUILTY. ADDING I AM SUBMITTED TO MY FAMILY, WHICH INCLUDES CONTINUING MY CAREER. RESULT, I AM HOPEFUL WE WILL ROE SOLVE THIS AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.

WITH THE SHOW IN ITS FIFTH SEASON ON BRAVO, TERESA’S FUTURE WITH THE SHOW IS POTENTIAL IN JEOPARDY. >> YOU CAN’T REALLY SHOOT THE LEVEL OF GLAMOUR FROM BEHIND BARS. >> BECAUSE THIS WAS AN INITIAL APPEARANCE, NOT AN RAIMENT, THEY — THERE ARE SOME STIPULATIONS THAT THE JUDGE PUT ON THE GIEDICES TODAY. THEY WERE BOTH RELEASED ON A $500,000 UNSECURED APPEARANCE BOND. THEY ALSO HAD TO SURRENDER THEIR PASSPORTS. THEY ARE RESTRICTED TO TRAVEL IN NEW YORK AND NEW JERSEY, AND ONE INTERESTING THING THAT CAME OUT OF THIS, JOE OR GIUSEPPE GIUDICE IS NOT A U.S. CITIZENS. AT THE END OF THIS, HE DID HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE FACT THAT HE COULD POSSIBLY BE DEPORTED BACK TO ITALY. HE’S AN ITALIAN CITIZEN. THE JUDGE SAID HE HAD THE RIGHT TO TALK TO THE ITALIAN EMBASSY THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS AND CONSULT WITH THEM. I DID WALK OUT WITH THEM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MEDIA SCRUM. I ASKED THEM QUESTIONS, HOW DID THEY FEEL? THEY WERE TIGHT-LIPPED. HOWEVER, JOE’S ATTORNEY DID ANSWER A COUPLE QUESTIONS THE I ASKED WHY DIDN’T HE TAKE A PLEA IN THE OTHER CASE? AND HE SAID SIMPLY BECAUSE HESS CLIENT IS NOT GUILTY.

BACK TO YOU. >> A WHOLE LOT OF REALITY. REAL-LIFE MICHELLE TURNER, GREAT TO SEE YOU THERE. >> AN INTERESTING CASE HERE, A LAUNDRY LIST OF CHARGES. IF THIS COUPLE IS FOUND GUILTY, THIS EL DO FACE A HEFTY SENTENCE. MID WIN CHARMS AND — HAMPTON. HOW MUCH JAIL TIME. COULD WE BE TALKING HOOER? >> MY GOODNESS, THEY ARE LOOKING AT A TOTALITY OF AT LEAST 55 YEARS. THAT’S IF THEY’RE LUCKY. THE PROBLEMS IS THEY WERE — WE ALL KNOW THAT THE IRS, BANKRUPTCY COURTS DO NOT LIKE IT WHEN PEOPLE ARE NOT FORTHCOMING. THERE ARE STARTS SITTING IN JAIL AS A RESULT OF THAT.

THEY RUN THE GAMUT. SO IT DOES NOT LOOK GOOD FOR THEM, AND IF I WERE THEM, I WOULD BE TRYING TO SETTLE AND WORK OUT AN ARRANGEMENT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, IF POSSIBLE. HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT DEFENDING THEM? CONSIDER THEY’RE A VERY PUBLIC COUPLE 1234. >> THEY’RE CLAIMING SHE WAS NOT EMPLOYED. IN 2009 SHE STARTED THE SHOW. THE WHOLE WORLD PRACTICALLY KNOWS TERESA WAS EMPLOYED. I AGREE WITH MID WIN, TALKING ABOUT A PLEA WOULD PROBABLY BE A GOOD IDEA. I THINK IT’S INTERESTING THAT THEY HAVE NO, SIR SAID YET. TERESA’S LAWYER — THEY HAVE SEPARATE ATTORNEYS, WHICH I THINK IS A GOOD IDEA. JOE’S LAWYER HASN’T SPOKEN TO THE ISSUE. PERHAPS JOE WILL PLEAD TO S .
