Two stars of The Real Housewives of New Jersey were indicted Monday on federal fraud charges, accused of exaggerating their income while applying for loans before their TV show debuted in 2009, then hiding their improving fortunes in a bankruptcy filing after their first season aired.
Teresa Giudice, 41, and her husband Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice, 43, of Montville Township, N.J., were charged in a 39-count indictment with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.

Call it a really bad case of sibling rivalry.
In a sneak peek at Sunday's The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice and her brother Joe Gorga (whose wife Melissa is also a Housewife) are at odds once again. This time, they're fighting over Teresa's husband, Joe Giudice, and how he treats her.
"How does your husband treat your kids?" Gorga asks during a workout. "How does your husband treat you? I go home and I treat my wife like a queen so my sons can see that."

Could it be that the Real Housewives franchise is America's greatest most recent export?
After The Real Housewives of New Jersey premiered to a whopping 2.8 million viewers on Sunday, it's easy to see why television networks across the globe would want to profile the rich, famous – and feuding.
As the hostility between Housewives Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga continues to play out in front of cameras, the series is finding legs far from New Jersey – specifically in places like Israel, Canada, Ireland and Brazil.
Take a peek at what's happening on Housewives-inspired shows all over the world:

Before the explosive new season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres June 2 on Bravo, Andy Cohen is sitting down with the show's feuding stars to discuss a number of topics, including how close relationships were fractured.
Among them? Melissa Gorga's song, "On Display."
Apparently, her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice thinks the song – which Gorga wrote and recorded during her first season on the show – may be about her.
"So many people told me that," Teresa tells Cohen in a clip of Watch What Happens Live: NJ Housewives Tell All, airing Sunday (8 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
The issue is in the lyrics about being followed by paparazzi.

If the trailer is any indication, the fifth season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey will be full of its signature screaming matches, brawls and tears.
Or as Teresa Giudice put it on her Facebook Friday, "Um, wow. My heart is racing."
This season, Melissa Gorga seems to be the root of everyone's problems. (Watch the full trailer below.)
"My parents come to the house and they look at you like you're the devil," Melissa's husband Joe says in a clip in between tears and Melissa's provocative dancing.

The most dramatic crop of reality TV women in the Garden State are returning to Bravo, as The Real Housewives of New Jersey comes back for its fifth season, which premieres June 2 (8 p.m. ET).
All five of the main ladies – Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, and Kathy Wakile – are slated to star in what Manzo tells PEOPLE, is "our best season yet."

It wouldn't be a Posche fashion show without the drama, and in the season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, there's plenty of name-calling, finger-pointing and bleeping to go around.
After last week's episode, during which a man appeared claiming to have employed Melissa Gorga as a stripper, everyone is all riled up. Was Teresa Giudice involved in setting up her sister-in-law? Joe Gorga seems to think so.
But he's also steaming mad at Posche owner Kim D., who manages to insert herself in all the drama, too.
"You're the scum of the Earth," Joe tells Kim D. outside the show, while Caroline Manzo and Melissa look on.

Who's Joe Giudice talking to?
The husband of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has been caught on camera using some highly offensive language while speaking about his wife.
While the New Jersey cast, including the Manzos, the Lauritas, the Wakiles and the Gorgas, are all in Napa, Calif., to celebrate Caroline Manzo's 50th birthday, Joe excuses himself to take a phone call – for work, he says. (Watch a clip of the footage below.)
What he says on the phone at first – in English – to the person on the other end isn't necessarily incriminating. But once he sees his wife walking over to him, the name-calling begins.
