Teresa Giudice Hires Crisis Manager as She Pleads Not Guilty to New Fraud Charges


Teresa Giudice


Wendy Feldman of Custodial Coaching is hired to act as 'the legal coach and crisis manager' for the 'Real Houseviwes of New Jersey' star.

Teresa Giudice, who's facing years in prison for fraud charges, has decided to get help from Wendy Feldman of Custodial Coaching before her February 24 trial. "I'm her legal coach and crisis manager," Feldman told Us Weekly.

"I have not been hired to prepare either Teresa or Joe Guidice for prison. In fact, most of my work is well-known as crisis management oriented," the ex-broker, who has also advised Lindsay Lohan, said of working with the Giudices.

"In addition, I am known as director of alternative sentencing at Cliffside Malibu where Ms. Lohan recently was. However, I am acting as the legal coach and crisis manager only for Teresa Giudice," she added.

Teresa and Joe, who were originally indicted on 39 counts, were charged with two more counts on Monday, November 18. According to a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office in New Jersey, "additional counts stem from a $361,250 mortgage loan that Teresa Giudice obtained in July 2005."

"In the course of obtaining the loan, she and [her husband] prepared a loan application which falsely stated that Teresa Giudice was employed as a realtor and that she had a monthly salary of $15,000. Teresa Giudice was not employed outside the home at the time," the statement continued.

On Wednesday, November 20, the star of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" and her husband were arraigned in federal court in Newark. They have pleaded not guilty to the new charges.
