The Justice Department announced Monday it’s charging two stars of Bravo’s reality show "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" with conspiracy to defraud lenders, illegally obtaining mortgages and hiding assets in a bankruptcy case.
“The indictment today alleges the Guidices lied to the bankruptcy court, to the IRS and to a number of banks,” U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman said in a statement. “Everyone has an obligation to tell the truth when dealing with the courts, paying their taxes and applying for loans or mortgages. That’s reality.”
"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" aired its fifth season finale on Sunday night.
