It seems even Andy Cohen hasn't gotten over Teresa Giudice's emotional return from prison.

While Giudice's return to Real Housewives of New Jersey was confirmed in February, Andy Cohen is opening up on what viewers can expect ahead of the July 10 premiere of the show's seventh season. The Bravo personality and executive producer sat down with ET's Brad Bessey, revealing Giudice's reunion with her family is featured in the upcoming season's first episode.

"I've seen it three or four times, and I wept every time." Cohen said of the show's first episode in over a year. "It's the realest, most raw moment that I've seen. When you see these four girls jump in her arms, it's like nothing that I've seen."

According to Cohen, the upcoming season will document Giudice as she tries to manage her legal troubles and adjusts to her new life at home, after being released in December following an 11-month sentence in federal prison. Giudice's husband, Joe, started his 41-month sentence for fraud in March.

"You do see a different Teresa, and you do see how this year away really changed her," Cohen promised of the new season, which will also show Giudice trying to manage relationships with the other housewives.

"It's interesting to see how the terrain lays out between her and her sister-in-law, who have never gotten along," Cohen teased. "And she and her ex-best friend of 12 years, Jaclyn, those are the two relationships to watch, and you'll be surprised by how they turn out."

Cohen also opened up about another Real Housewives cast member, Bethenny Frankel -- telling ET that Frankel was "bleeding profusely" prior to her health scare, which will be featured on the latest season of Real Housewives of New York.
