Orange really may be the new black…

After pleading guilty to multiple fraud charges Tuesday morning, Teresa and Joe Giudice could be facing time behind bars.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa and her husband, Joe, entered a guilty plea to bankruptcy fraud, mail fraud, tax evasion, and numerous other charges in Newark Federal Court in New Jersey.

Teresa agreed to pay $200,000 to the government and may face up to 27 months in prison. Joe, however, may be locked up for a longer time with the looming possibility of a 46-month sentence.

“Having now confessed their wrongdoing, the Giudices face the real cost of their criminal conduct,” said U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman.

Teresa’s old RHONJ nemesis Kim Granatell is on a rampage publically slamming the couple on Twitter, in tabloid magazines, and other media outlets. Kim says that she hopes the couple ends up in prison because they deserve it!

Kim called into The Nancy Grace Show on HLN to discuss the Giudice’s situation. Catch a glimpse of Kim’s conversation with Nancy Grace below:

Despite all of the negativity, Teresa is trying her best to keep her family grounded. “Thank you all for your love & support of my family & my kids,” the 41-year-old reality star wrote two days after pleading guilty to fraud charges. “You know how much they mean to me. I am keeping them protected & private.”

“Teresa was of course upset Tuesday, but then she got right back into running errands and being a mom and a wife,” an insider told Us Weekly. “Life doesn’t stop. She and Joe are doing well, considering.”

While dining with friends at Mastro’s Steakhouse on Wednesday night, Carlton Gebbia, star of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, was taken out of the restaurant by stretcher and into an ambulance.

According to TMZ, a 911 call was placed at around 9:20 p.m after the reality star had one too many tequila shots and passed out at the upscale Beverly Hills restaurant.

“Sorry!” Gebbia tweeted the next morning. “Apparently I don’t hve the Irish wooden leg! All is well Thk u Cant handle 6shots of tequila.Wen did I become such a lightweight?”

“I can’t even explain what happened,” she wrote in a second post. “Nvr knew there was a limit. Brokers sent over shots I drank n lost count.Didn’t even order bloody dinner.”

Real Housewives of Atlanta guest-star Dwight Eubanks was arrested last month while driving in Dekalb County, Georgia on February 28th. The over-the-top event planner was pulled over and arrested for driving without a valid license. Dwight, 52, was released the same day on a $710 bond.

This is not the first time Dwight has been pinched for driving related charges. In December 2011, Atlanta police put Dwight behind bars for charges stemming from operating a vehicle with a suspended driver’s license.

Oh sheet! Former Real Housewives of New York City star Alex McCord has gotten herself in a legal battle with her former business partner.

After their departure from RHONY, Alex and her husband, Simon, created a high-end bath and bedding accessory company named Aluxe.

According to TMZ, Alex and Simon are now waging a lawsuit against their former partner Vivian Douek for allegedly copying the designs of their products.

Alex claims that their business was extremely successful, and her partnership with Vivian was going great until Vivian created her own line of products that were seemingly identical to Alex and Simon’s. In the lawsuit, Alex also alleges that Aluxe has lost close to $100 million dollars in sales over the last year because of Vivian’s competing line of products.

Polish those pumps and pop that champagne! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season four reunion is right around the corner!

Tears will flow and accusations will fly during the three-part RHOBH reunion. Andy Cohen will play referee while Kyle Richards, Yolanda Foster, Brandi Glanville, Kim Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Joyce Giraud, and Carolton Gebbia point fingers and rehash all the season four drama!

All the women will go at it, and the husbands will get involved too! Catch a sneak peek of what is to come below:
