The Real Housewives of New Jersey is back and Teresa Giudice is at the center of all the drama.
Bravo’s hit reality series will return for its seventh season on Sunday, July 10, with Teresa -- who completed 11 months in prison for fraud in December 2015 -- looking to repair her fractured relationships with her friends and family.
“Here’s to my sister. She spent a year in tough times,” Teresa’s brother, Joe Gorga, says in a toast among her close pals.
Viewers will also see the tearful reunion between Teresa, her young daughters and husband Joe, who began serving his 41-month prison sentence in March.
“I’ve been dreaming of this moment for 11-and-a-half months,” a somber Teresa says. “I’m going to make sure that nothing like this ever happens again. Just going to leave the past in the past and look to a brighter future.”
Though Teresa says she wants to move on from her legal troubles, that’s going to be easier said than done. As the three-minute trailer shows, the countdown to Joe’s incarceration looms large and takes an emotional toll on Teresa and her children.
“Are you bitter at Joe, because I know you didn’t do anything,” her brother asks her point blank. And when your own teenage daughter tells you to let him go, as Gia does in the trailer, you know things are serious.
“You can’t change what it is, the only thing you gotta do is get through it,” Joe Giudice, before we hear one of the couple’s youngest daughters, Gabriela, yearn for their father after he’s taken away to prison. Just heartbreaking.
Also back this season is Melisa Gorga, along with the return of Jacqueline Laurita, as well as sisters Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. Dolores Catania and relationship expert Siggy Flicker are the new housewives.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns Sunday, July 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
