NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -

Two cast members of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" have pleaded not guilty to new fraud charges.

Joe and Teresa Giudice were arraigned Wednesday in federal court in Newark on one count of bank fraud and one count of loan application fraud.

Authorities allege the couple prepared a mortgage loan application stating that Teresa Giudice worked as a real estate agent and made $15,000 a month. In reality, authorities say she was not employed.

The couple pleaded not guilty in July to conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.

Joe Giudice also was accused of failing to file tax returns from 2004 to 2008.
