The Real Housewives of New Jersey looks set for an explosive return to screens this summer.
According to a new report by Radar Online, Season 7 of the New Jersey Housewives franchise is set to premiere on Bravo this coming June, and it looks like it could be one of the most explosive seasons yet.
Here’s everything you need to know about Season 7 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita will be back
Bravo’s The Daily Dish confirmed earlier this year that familiar Real Housewives of New Jersey castmembers Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita will all be back for Season 7, which will “pick up nearly two years after Season 6 wrapped in November 2014, and will follow Teresa as she mends the relationships in her life following her release from prison in December 2015.”
Joe Giudice’s prison goodbyes will be shown
According to reports, most of Teresa Giudice’s husband’s family goodbyes before he surrendered for his 41-month prison sentence were filmed by Bravo cameras.
A source told Radar Online that although cameras were not inside the Giudice house during Joe’s final morning with his family, the Real Housewives of New Jersey crew were spotted filming outside the family’s home as Teresa and Joe said goodbye last month.
Jacqueline Laurita “despises” Melissa Gorga
While the two always appeared to get along in the past, according to a new report by Radar Online, longtime housewives Jacqueline Laurita and Melissa Gorga have not been getting along during filming for Season 7.
Radar Online is claiming that the New Jersey housewives have majorly fallen out in recent months, and even claimed that Jacqueline now “despises” her former friend.
“Jacqueline doesn’t care about Melissa and didn’t care what the Real Housewives of New Jersey producers wanted her to do. She’s done with Melissa,” a source claimed to the site last month, adding that “Jacqueline despises Melissa [and] doesn’t want anything to do with her. She hates her.”
A new Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member was removed after “threatening physical harm”
According to Real Mr. Housewife, a new cast member from the New Jersey reality show was removed from filming during a cast trip after making threats of bodily harm towards Laurita.
The site claimed that newbie Robyn Levy got into a verbal altercation with Jacqueline during a recent cast trip, which resulted in her “threatening physical harm against” the long time housewives star. She was removed from the trip and sent back to New Jersey.
“Bravo had her and her wife, Christina Flores, removed from the cast trip. They will not tolerate violent threats being made,” a source told the site of the altercation. “In addition, due to her actions, Robyn has completely lost any chance she had at being a full time cast member,” the insider added, revealing that “Bravo lawyers had to get involved. It was extremely serious, and viewers will be shocked.”
Jacqueline R Laurita “stormed off” during the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 reunion taping
A source close to production revealed to In Touch Weekly earlier this month that things get so heated between Jacqueline Laurita and her Real Housewives of New Jersey co-stars this coming season that Laurita allegedly “stormed off set” during the New Jersey housewives reunion taping at the beginning of the month.
According to the insider, Laurita found herself in a verbal altercation with Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga at the reunion show after the two confronted her about the alleged drama she’s been brining to the latest season of the popular reality show.
“Teresa and Melissa were both very calm, but resolute with what needed to be done — call Jacqueline out for all the drama that she had created,” a source told In Touch Weekly. “After going through a litany of the misdeeds done by Jacqueline, she got up and left. She had no response to the accusations that were discussed by Teresa and Melissa,” the source revealed.
