'Housewives' Joe Giudice: My Wife Wasn't Involved in Alleged Fraud

Towaco residents seek separate trials so Joe Giudice can 'exonerate' his wife, attorney says.

The Giudices, stars of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” have requested to have separate trials so Joe Giudice, who is not planning to testify on his own behalf, can "exonerate" his wife.

According to Joe Giudice's attorney, Miles Feinstein, Teresa was not aware of properties and businesses bought or owned in her name and she was unaware her signature was forged by her husband, his former business partner Joseph Mastropole and his attorney Fred Roughgarden, according to NJ.com. 

Teresa Giudice's attorney, Henry Klingeman, has also filed a similar motion that states if the trials are not separated, his client will not be able to invoke her marital privilege to not testify against her husband, the article said.

The Towaco residents pleaded not guilty in November to two new fraud charges regarding bank and loan application fraud. This brings their new total of indictments up to 41 counts. 

Joe Giudice also has other trials in 2014 for charges related to fraudulently obtaining a state driver’s license from the Paterson branch of the Motor Vehicle Office in June 2010 using his brother’s ID.

No way she didn't know about it! Add more charge to the mountain of charges against these two losers. They need to go away...

Yeah right and if anyone believes she was just another dumb housewife who knew nothing of her husbands business dealing then I have a bridge to sell you. These two are a disgrace along with most of their friends. While living the high life and believing they are better then everyone else but the truth is very different. They are in debt, fail to pay people they owe money to, live in huge house they can't afford etc. Sooner or later the truth comes out. Even the Brownstone crew with all their money he had to lie about where he lived to get a County position so the taxpayers can pay his families healthcare etc. More and more is coming out every day on this bunch. They are all a bunch of phonies.

I think it's a very poor example to set for our youth when you have a math teacher from the high school posing for the cameras with this tart........she's a thief and the only time she's not lying is when her mouth isn't moving
