Joe and Teresa Giudice were back in court today to enter their official not guilty pleas.
The court hearing was short and the Giudices didn't utter a word. They once again didn't address the media as they made their way inside, surrounded by bodyguards. The courthouse also put up metal barricades to keep the media clear from the couple's path.
The Giudices have been charged with 39 counts of fraud, which include making false statements on loan applications, conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, as well as bankruptcy fraud.
Updated: Their trial date is set for October 8th at 9am. Juicy's OTHER trial is October 28th.
Melissa Gorga is helping Teresa Giudice's kids stay occupied today as their parents are due back in federal court this afternoon. (We'll keep you posted after their hearing).
Melissa took Milania and Gabriella along to see the Broadway show "Annie" today – in celebration of Antonia's eighth birthday. Melissa Tweeted, "All ready to see Annie on Broadway! Happy Birthday @antoniagorga!!!"
Over the weekend Melissa and Joe were sharing photos from the Jersey Shore, where they were celebrating her big day with family at the beach and on boat rides.
In it, Jacqueline reminds herself for three pages that her goal with Teresa was to be civil, not to mend their friendship. We got. Actually, we got it the first time you wrote it! Likewise, she explains for several paragraphs pages why she felt the need to get the tummy tuck. I'll spare you the detailed description of her pre-surgery lingerie routine. You're welcome.
Of course, I am just giving Jacq a hard time, but I tried to only hit the highlights for you. I feel like Ross on that episode of Friends…"Yes, you went on for eighteen pages…FRONT AND BACK!"
Yesterday night Melissa Gorga was on WWHL. There she was cross-examined about the myriad of rumors that are her life. They don't call it six degrees of Melissa Gorga for nothing!
Among the allegations Melissa has been hit with on this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey was a cheating scandal concerning her ex-boyfriend Bryan. A few episodes back Melissa's former BFFL Jan met up with Kim D where she dropped a salacious bomb about what Melissa was doing early in her marriage to Poison. Here's a hint: she wasn't doing Poison!
Melissa denied it of course, and blamed Teresa Giudice for spreading rumors. Last night she denied it again and accused Jan of being after camera time. Aren't they all!
Our source chimed in to allege that Melissa is telling tall tales and Teresa is definitely not out to get her!

Last night's episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey was about reinventing the old and making it new again. Make new frienemies, but keep the old… one is faux marble and the other is faux leopard!
Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita made up and by that I mean they vowed not to appear at anymore reunions wearing dresses where the sequins turned into poison darts and and scream cheating accusations at each other's husbands. So by making amends they decided to keep each other's secrets…
Oh and Jacqueline shed her old stripper skin in favor of some new skin that didn't have washed up tacky tattoos on it. When did getting plastic surgery become a requisite Housewives storyline?
Things begin with Teresa and Jacqueline continuing with their "tawk". Jacqueline is clearly flustered because she forgot her translucent powder and her blotting papers. Girl was shiny as a gold lame and her hair was all mussed. Maybe she and Teresa had some sort of knock-down, drag-out, rolling on the table brawl and the footage was accidentally damaged when some Fabellini got tossed on it and that's why we didn't see it? That would explain Jacq's shininess…
With the Gorgadice families on the mend, the Gorgas and the Giudices strive to spend quality time together by taking a bus trip. HA! Unfortunately little pitchers have big ears and even less filters!
In other news, Teresa and Jacqueline Laurita continue to struggle with their relationship as Teresa confronts Jacqueline. Teresa also hosts a charity event. And finally, some of Jacqueline's decisions raise some eyebrows with Chris!
