The past few months haven’t been easy on Joe and Teresa Giudice — and it’s only about to get worse.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Newark, N.J., has revealed that the Real Housewives of New Jersey pair will now be indicted on 41 charges of fraud — two more than their original 39 counts.
One count of bank fraud and one count of loan application join the initial 39 counts of mail, wire and loan fraud as well as conspiracy, which they were indicted on July 29. The two additional counts stem from a $361,250 mortgage loan that Teresa got in July 2005. The statement claims she and Joe prepped a loan application that falsely stated the reality star was a realtor who made $15,000 a month.

The duo plead not guilty to financial fraud on Aug. 14. If convicted, they could spend the rest of their lives in prison.
Since the indictment, Teresa and Joe, who are parents to four young girls, have put on a brave front.
“We both support each other,” the Fabulicious author recently told Life & Style. “We are both there for each other and lean on each other.”
For now, Teresa is busy preparing for Thanksgiving.
