Two days after Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe, were indicted in New Jersey on charges of bank fraud and conspiracy, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star has issued a statement to her fans on Twitter.
Thank you all so so much for your love and support. It means the world to me and my family! TANTI BACI Xx— Teresa Giudice (@Teresa_Giudice) July 31, 2013

She retweeted a series of tweets, including one from Dina Manzo, which read "Keeping a friend in my prayers tonight…This too shall pass xo."
The mother of four daughters,who range in age from 3 to 12, then issued another message. It simply read: "I wish I could hug you all right now. Xx"
On Monday, it was revealed that Teresa, 41, and Joe, 43, were charged with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud in a 39-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury. The indictment also charges Joe with failure to file tax returns for tax years 2004 through 2008, during which time he allegedly earned nearly $1 million.
These charges could land them in jail for the rest of their lives if convicted. The judge in charge of the case, US Magistrate Waldor of Newark, N.J., made the pair turn over their passports and has ordered them not to leave the New York/New Jersey area.
