NEWARK, New Jersey - Two stars of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" are due back in court.
Teresa and Guiseppe "Joe" Giudice are scheduled to enter a plea before a federal court judge on Wednesday afternoon.
Lawyers say both are expected to plead not guilty.
Both were indicted last month on federal fraud charges.
They were charged in a 39-count indictment with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.
The couple is accused of exaggerating their income when applying for loans, then hiding their improving fortunes in a bankruptcy filing.
They are accused of submitting fraudulent mortgage and loan applications and fabricating tax returns.
Prosecutors allege Joe Giudice also failed to file federal tax returns from 2004 to 2008.
