NEWARK, N.J. — “Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star Teresa Giudice says she and her husband, Joe, hope to resolve federal fraud charges as quickly as possible.

A 39-count indictment handed up Monday in federal court in Newark, N.J., accuses the couple of bank and bankruptcy fraud. Joe Giudice is also accused of failing to file five years of tax returns, before the show began airing, when he allegedly earned nearly $1 million.

Teresa’s attorney says she will plead not guilty and that “we look forward to vindicating her.”

Giudice also issued her own statement saying “today is a most difficult day for our family.”

She says she supports her husband and is committed to continuing her career.

The show is in its fifth season on Bravo. A network spokesman had no comment.
