Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Joe and Teresa Giudice Are in More Legal Heat

The couple, earlier this year, at a benefit for the sheriff.

Joe Giudice, the hubby of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, may have forged someone's signature to (falsely) prove he paid back a loan, before filing for (a possibly falsified) bankruptcy! Here we go: In 2007, Joe Giudice's business partner, Joe Mastropole, gave him a loan secured by three properties, which Giudice failed to pay back in full. Then Joe G. forged his business partner's name on a bank document that said the mortgage on the properties was paid, Mastropole charges in a lawsuit, in order to take out another loan and pocket $1 million, court papers charge. After Joe M. won a judgment in his case last October, the Giudices's filed for bankruptcy just days later! According to the Post, "The Giudices' bankruptcy lawyer, James Kridel, admitted that Giudice [forged] the document, but said he did so with Mastropole's permission. Mastropole called that 'a lie.'"

The Post says that whatever Joe Giudice did with the 2007 windfall that he's yet to fully pay back "is anyone's guess." So here's a few, all captured on film: bought his family a mansion in Franklin Lakes, turned it into a gaudy makeshift nightclub for a housewarming party, and then, well, maybe he spent some on few nice nights out at the Brownstone.
