I was watching an episode of Intervention and the lady said she was going to get in trouble because she put a blank check in her husband's account, what does that mean?

Literally blank as for the amount of money. A signed bank cheque (carte blanche) with the amount left for the payee to fill in. In other words a cheque that has no numerical value written in, but is already signed.

A blank check sometimes indicates that a large, uncertain amount has been authorized in order to accomplish something. For example, a rich grandparent might indicate that an only grandchild will have a blank check as far as the cost of education.

More info is needed to determine exact meaning.

Okay, I was thinking it was maybe a bounced check because of the context of it being a documentary of drug addicts.

No, a bounced check (a bad check) means the account holder has non-sufficient funds (not enough money to cover it) on his/hers account.

If she was worried, I think she wrote a bad check...
