Teresa Giudice and husband Joe were already having some financial problems, but it appears that the Real Housewives star and her husband could be facing some heftier charges due to fraudulent information in their bankruptcy petition.
Radar Online reports that the couple has been accused of hiding some big ticket assets from the court, including bank accounts, property, vehicles, and a $250,000 payout from Teresa’s book, “Skinny Italian.”
The petition’s overseer, US Trustee Roberta A. DeAngelis, filed an official complaint last week stating that the couple’s claim was riddled with “falsehoods” and included information that they knew was “not true and correct.”
It’s alleged that the Giudicesalso falsified income tax returns to maximize the impact of their filing.
DeAngelis has requested that Judge Morris Stern deny the couple’s chapter 7 bankruptcy claim due to these “false sworn testimonies.”
Uh oh! How are you going to talk your way out of this one, Teresa? Maybe Bravo will save you?
