Teresa and Joe Giudice have finally broken their silence after last month’s fraud indictment left them facing fifty years in jail. The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple opened up to Andy Cohen on Sunday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live. The Giudice’s are being accused of lying about multiple income sources, bankruptcy fraud, and bank fraud. People reported that Joe, 43, defended his family’s spending saying, “We have never lived beyond our means. Whatever I could afford to buy I would buy. We work hard, so what, we are allowed to make money. It’s part of what we do, I’m a businessman and I make money.” The couple will appear on the next Housewives reunion on October 6th.
