Teresa Giudice Twitter, Blog, Divorce: Melissa and Joe Gorga Comment On Giudice Legal Woes [UPDATE]
Melissa and Joe Gorga, fellow cast members on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, are sticking by the Giudice family during a tumultuous time.
"We're always here for Teresa," Melissa, 34, told Us Weekly of her sister-in-law at the MTV 2013 Video Music Awards on Sunday, Aug. 25. "She's very strong and has a lot of strength and at the end of the day, it's about those four babies and we're here for them no matter what. She knows that we're here for her."
As previously reported, Teresa, 41, and Joe Giudice, 43, are accused of exaggerating their income while applying for loans before their reality TV show debuted in 2009. Teresa previously filed for a mortgage loan of $121,000 in 2001. They then hid how well they were doing in a bankruptcy filing after their first season aired.
They were finally 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.
Rumors have also been circulating that Teresa Giudice would be rid of all counts if she testified against her husband. However, their lawyer discounted the rumors.
Teresa tweeted on the matter, writing, "Today is a most difficult day for our family."
