"Yeah, it was really hard for me to watch," Giudice answered.
The season seven premiere captures Giudice's emotional homecoming after her prison stint. Giudice served 11 months behind bars after pleading guilty to four counts of fraud in March 2014.
Teresa's celebration is short-lived, however, as she and her daughters must then prepare for her husband Joe's incarceration. He's currently serving a 41-month sentence, but Teresa has her eyes on the silver lining. She says the time apart could ignite a new flame in their relationship thanks to some X-rated emails from Joe.
"We're married 16 years and I just can't wait for him to get home," Teresa gushed. "I think it's just going to spice up our marriage even more. Even when I came home, it's like falling in love all over again."
The rest of the season focuses on Teresa's attempts to repair her relationships with her brother, Joe Gorga, and Melissa, his wife, but they aren't the only source of drama. Jacqueline Laurita has words with both women at different points in the season.
"I think that you and Jacqueline go at it a couple times, and then Jacqueline and I go at it," Teresa said.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns to Bravo on Sunday, July 10, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
