Well, this is an interesting development!!
After Joe & Teresa Giudice plead not guilty in court yesterday, the world naturally assumed it was because the Real Housewives were — in fact — not guilty and they wanted the whole world to know, right?
Here's another possibility: They didn't have much of a choice!
According to some reports, the reality celebz originally planned to cop a plea!
Sources close to the situation say their lawyers submitted a plea deal to prosecutors which would've had Juicy Joe serving a buttload of jail time for the tax evasion and Teresa would merely get probation, but the U.S. Attorneys office was NOT HAVING IT!

Well, this is interesting…and totes expected!
Teresa and Joe Giudice headed to court on Wednesday and pleaded not guilty to their 39 charges of tax evasion and fraud!
Prior to their appearance in front of the judge, their lawyer, Miles Feinstein, stated:

If there is ever a time to be with your family, it's when someone you're related to is facing 50 years in jail!
Or maybe it's the opposite…
Whatever it is, it appears Melissa Gorga is putting her ongoing stripper, cheating whore feud with her sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, on the backburner right next to the ravioli.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey
copycat loyal wife revealed last night on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live that the Gorgas and Giudices have reached a place of peace while all the legal shizz stirs around them.

We guess facing over 50 years in jail hasn't dampened their fire.
Or maybe facing over 50 years in jail away from each other has actually helped to light a fire in them!
Whatever the reason for these smooches, Teresa Giudice certainly put her love for Juicy Joe Giudice on display while popping into Florida for their first post-fraud red carpet appearance!
We already told you the trip was okay'd despite their legal dramz, but we're not so sure that PDA has been okay'd! LOLz!
But, legal or not, the Real Housewives of New Jersey shizz-stirrers laid it on while appearing at Pangea Nightclub at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. We're not sure exactly what they did all night there, but hopefully it was all on the up and up.
We're guessing they'll be headed back to Jersey soon to sort through those annoying 39 counts of fraud and tax evasion.
Just another day…

Are we seeing double?!
In Touch mag is clearly banking on Real Housewives star Teresa Giudice's troubled past for this week's new(ish) issue!
The déjà-vu moment comes from the double-use of this 2011 Tre family photo (above)!
The older issue is pictured to the left, and you can absolutely tell it's the same snap twice!
More picture bang for your buck?!
The headlines are almost identical, and Photoshop has nicely provided a quick wardrobe change to complete this HIGHlarious pic!
You'd think since it's been a few since the first photo was taken, they'd re-shoot for an updated version with Joe Giudice included, especially since the duo is reportedly standing together, despite Teresa's rumored plea deal to testify against her hubby!
They're free enough to go to the beach amongst a 39 count federal indictment and looming deportation/jail time, so a paid mag shoot should be NBD!

And this ca-rayyy-zayyy dramz continues!
Teresa and Joe Giudice’s marriage is definitely being tested, despite other things. There recent legal troubles — several counts of fraud — could land the married couple in jail for more than fifty years!
But according to new reports, it seems Teresa might be able to bargain for a plea deal if she apparently testifies against her husband! A source revealed to In Touch:

Tre in jail?!
Do they have hairspray and spray tan and fake eyelashes and chicken cutlets and ingredienses in prison?
Teresa Giudice best hope so because it's starting to sound like she's headed to the big house! And we're not talking about a brand new mansion Joe Giudice is building for her
even though he can't afford it.
While she's facing 39 counts of fraud and tax evasion alongside her hubby, it's rumored the Real Housewives of New Jersey star won't even be able to plea her way out of this one. Although, maybe if she did some bribing with some Fabellini or Juicy Joe's homemade wine…
But alas, an insider recently revealed prosecutors are going for
the meatballs blood:
