The tension between the stars of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is at an all-time high.
While fans can expect plenty of drama to unfold when the new season of RHONJ premieres, the ladies were at each other’s throats during a recent promo shoot.
According to Radar Online, RHONJ crew members had to separate the women to prevent any arguments from delaying the shoot.
The photo shoot was scheduled following an emotional vacation to Vermont. During the trip, both Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga decided to end their friendship with Jacqueline Laurita.
Apparently, the three women did not reconcile even after production for the new season wrapped. Instead, the tensions between the two parties forced producers to separate the women into different rooms for the shoot.
One group of Housewives spent the photo shoot in a room by themselves, stocked with the best alcohol brands. The remaining cast members, meanwhile, proceeded to get ready on a completely different floor.
Thankfully, separating the women worked, and crew members were able to finish the photo shoot without too much hassle.
While the drama continued behind the scenes, Bravo has released the first trailer for the upcoming season. According to Entertainment Weekly, fans can expect Season 7 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey to be the wildest one yet.
The biggest storyline this season is Giudice’s return to the show following her 15-month stint behind bars. Although Giudice has served her time, her husband, Joe, is currently serving his 41-month term at Fort Dix.
Fans got a first look at Giudice’s emotional reunion with her family in the new trailer. According to Hollywood Life, Giudice couldn’t hold back the tears as she hugged her daughters.
“I was dreaming about this moment for the past 11 and a half months,” Giudice shared in the trailer. “I’m going to make sure this never happens again. Just going to leave the past in the past and look to a brighter future.”
At the same time, the series will introduce Dolores Catania as the newest member of the show. Based on her previous work experience, fans are definitely in for a few surprises.
Catania has two children and used to work as a corrections officer, a realtor, and a surgical technician.
Speaking of newbies, Siggy Flicker, an expert in relationships and matchmaking, will join RHONJ as another new cast member. In addition to appearing on past dating shows, Flicker has written two books: Write Your Own Fairytale: The New Rules of Dating and Relationships and Finding Love on Your Own.
Despite all the drama set to unfold this season, Giudice is happy to be back in action.
“I am very excited to be back,” she stated. “For me, this season is all about letting go of the past and embracing the future. People are calling me Teresa 2.0.”
Of course, Giudice’s happiness is not going to last long. Not only is she dealing with her husband’s prison sentence, but her relationship with Laurita quickly goes downhill.
At this point, it isn’t clear what happened between Laurita and Giudice. Although the two ladies hit things off on a good note, the trailer showed them fighting it out.
If the reports about the photo shoot are any indication, then things between Giudice and Laurita take a nasty turn this season. Whether or not the ladies are able to work out their differences is yet to be seen.
In addition to the aforementioned cast members, fans will also see Kathy Wakile return in the upcoming season.
The seventh season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is set to premiere on July 10 on Bravo.
