NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Two stars of the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" have been freed on $500,000 bond each amid fraud charges.

Teresa Giudice (JOO'-dice) and her husband, Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice, appeared in federal court Tuesday morning.

The Giudices are 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.

They both had to surrender their passports and can't travel outside of New Jersey and New York. The husband could be deported to Italy if convicted because he's not a U.S. citizen.

Authorities say the couple submitted fraudulent mortgage and loan applications from 2001 to 2008, including fake tax returns and W-2s. Prosecutors allege Joe Giudice failed to file tax returns for the years 2004 through 2008.
