Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice were indicted on 39-counts of money fraud earlier this week. Yesterday the couple was released on $500,000 bond each and it was discovered that Joe isn't even a U.S. citizen and faces deportation if convicted. So yeah, good times!
In August the couple meets back in court where both plan to enter Not Guilty pleas, but it's apparently Teresa will try to get out of jail time while Juicy does the dirty work. Hey – they do have four kids AND a reality television career to nurture!
Speaking of reality TV, Teresa's attorney Henry Klingeman is targeting Real Housewives of New Jersey as the reason Teresa and Joe are in such trouble. Oh rlllly…

"She's certainly being targeted because of her celebrity," Mr. Klingeman tells People. "The government frequently targets high-profile people to draw attention to their prosecutorial efforts. It’s especially happening here."
With RHONJ not currently filming (production on the sixth season is expected to begin in September or October) Teresa and Joe are apparently reconsidering participating in the show!
"I hope she continues," Teresa's attorney shares. "It’s a source of passion for her. And a source of support for her kids. As long as she can continue to attract the attention of her fans, I would encourage to continue to do so."
Teresa has admitted in the past that she regrets doing reality TV, but it's too late now!
