'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Cast Member's House For Sale

MONTVILLE, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) - A member of the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" cast is putting her house on the market.

Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe, are seeking nearly $4 million for the six-bedroom home in Montville.

The two are facing federal prison after they pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit fraud. Joe Giudice also pleaded guilty to failing to file a tax return for 2004, though he acknowledged he didn't file taxes on income of approximately $1 million between 2004 and 2008.

Prosecutors allege the two used fake documents to inflate their incomes and obtain millions of dollars in mortgages and other loans.

In November, they were charged with one count of bank fraud as well as 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.

Back in July, they were charged in a 39-count indictment alleging mail and wire fraud.

In the earlier indictment, the couple was accused of exaggerating their income while applying for loans before their TV show debuted in 2009 and then hiding their fortunes in a bankruptcy filing after their first season aired.

Listing agent Frank Cooney tells The Record newspaper the couple is looking for a fresh start.

The stone and stucco home was built in 2008 on a nearly 4-acre lot that includes a stream and a pond.
