Bravo have just unveiled the first official trailer for Season 7 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and the upcoming season looks set to be the most explosive yet.
The just revealed trailer for the new season of the New Jersey edition of the Bravo franchise gives fans an inside look at Joe and Teresa Giudice’s recent legal woes, including Teresa’s return from the slammer and emotional footage of Joe surrendering for this almost three-year sentence earlier this year.
The new clip also features serious drama from returning housewives Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita and also introduces the drama’s new full-time cast members, Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker.
But all is definitely not well in the garden state.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey trailer gives fans an intimate look at how the Giudice family are coping while Joe is behind bars, as well as candid conversations between Teresa and her husband about their marriage ahead of Joe’s prison stint.
But while Joe heads to prison, after years of drama, it looks like Teresa and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga have officially made up, but things appear to get seriously frosty between Giudice and her long-time friend-turned-enemy Jacqueline.
In one particularly dramatic scene, Laurita can be seen in a shouting match with Teresa, where Laurita scathingly brands her a “felon” when the former friends have a pretty serious confrontation following Giudice’s 11-month prison stint last year. Laurita then storms off after slamming Teresa as a “phony b****” and a “f****** criminal” in a seriously candid moment.
And it looks like things don’t get much better for the former friends, as Teresa even appears to refer to her former friend as being “an evil person, like Osama bin Laden.”
The drama follows recent reports claiming that Jacqueline has made a number of enemies during filming for the seventh season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, which includes drama with both Teresa and Melissa.
According to Radar Online, the ladies of The Real Housewives of New Jersey were at each other’s throats during filming, with the majority turning against Jacqueline during the upcoming season.
A source even alleged to the site that Gorga and Laurita got into a serious argument in the seventh season, which the trailer appears to show glimpses of, and even admitted that Jacqueline now “despises” Melissa despite their past close friendship since Melissa and husband Joe joined the series for season three.
“Jacqueline doesn’t want anything to do with her. She hates her,” a The Real Housewives of New Jersey insider claimed earlier this year, noting that “Jacqueline doesn’t care about Melissa and didn’t care what the producers wanted her to do. She’s done with Melissa.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 trailer also appeared to tease the serious fight that Real Mr. Housewife reported took place between the New Jersey housewives earlier this year, in which new cast member Robyn Levy was supposedly removed from a trip after she “made threats of bodily harm” towards Jacqueline.
The site claimed earlier this year that Robyn allegedly “tried to make a scene for herself to try to be a full-time Housewife” during a recent Real Housewives of New Jersey cast trip to Vermont, which is shown in the season seven trailer, only to be sent back to the New Jersey.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey newbie supposedly “attempted to pick a huge fight with Jacqueline Laurita” before making threats to Jacqueline that the site claimed included “threatening physical harm against her” before Bravo and Real Housewives of New Jersey producers had Levy removed for her allegedly aggressive comments.
Season 7 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is set to premiere on July 10 at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
