Just a few days after its latest season finale, The Real Housewives of New Jersey casting carousel is spinning furiously.

Teresa Giudice is desperate to return. Caroline Manzo is leaving for a spinoff. And Dina Manzo may become a series regular once again.

An insider says Dina "wants to come back," but she has one very strong condition for her return:

She "wants [Jacqueline Laurita] fired first because she is afraid of fighting with her,” a source tells Huffington Post blogger Tom Murro.

It's "Salon, Farewell" as The Real Housewives of New Jersey wrap up their season as everyone gathers at the salon. We recap the fighting and scary faces in our THG + or - review.

And what kind of finale would it be without Kim D's scowling face?

What's So Scary?

Apparently the woman who resembles the crypt keeper scares Joe and Teresa Giudice too? Plus 20.

But it's Penny and Teresa who go at it first. Since Penny is claiming Teresa texts her, Teresa wants to see the texts. Plus 12 because for once Teresa makes a perfectly reasonable request. 

Unfortunately Penny tells her, "I don't save my texteses." Or was that I don't save Texas? Minus 18. My Jersey Housewives translator must be on the fritz.

Teresa Giudice is desperate to get in.

And Caroline Manzo just got out.

With Giudice hoping to sign a new deal with Bravo and play a major role on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6, multiple outlets confirm that Manzo will NOT be returning to the franchise that made her famous.

This mother of three was an original cast member then RHONJ debuted in 2009, but her departure from the flagship does not mean viewers have seen the last of Caroline Manzo. Far from it.

Teresa Giudice may be spending the next 50 years in prison.

For now, though, this Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member is simply focused on the next few months: insiders confirm she's working on a new deal with the Bravo franchise for one very important reason.

Teresa is desperate for money,” a source tells Radar Online.

Teresa and husband Joe have pleaded not guilty to federal fraud charges that include lying about their assets in a bankruptcy filing and misrepresenting their fortune in mortgage applications.

A trial date was scheduled for October 8, but then pushed back to early 2014, and legal fees will continue to mount for the couple.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey is back for another episode and "Hair We Go Again" with the bad hair and worse singing.

We break down the need for a better hair weave and the purple pimp hat in our THG +/- review.

There were so many things that were just bad in this episode, like this outfit of Teresa's...

What Is She Wearing?

I'm not sure we'll have space to share them all. But let's try.

We'll start off with Melissa Gorga. No, her hair is good. It's her singing that needs work. Lots of work. Minus 15 because listening to her vocal exercises was just downright painful.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns and "The Blonde Drops a Bombshell"…or did she? We break down the rumors and ridiculous set ups in THG's +/- recap!

The Biggest Tongue

The Housewives once again gave us bad singing and even worse fake meetings. It was hard to figure out which was more cringe worthy.

Let's start with Melissa Gorga's singing talent. Minus 50. Please God, I beg you, make all Housewives end their supposed musical careers.

Seriously. It's nothing but painful for both the audience and the professionals that Bravo pays to come in and critique them.

On second thought, Bethenny Frankel does feel sort of bad for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice. Or at least the reality star's four children.

Frankel made headlines a few weeks ago when she said she has no sympathy for Giudice or her husband Joe because they broke the law and went on TV and "that's not really smart."

Bethenny does not mince words. But in a sit-down with Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live this week, Frankel changed her tune slightly.

Watch clips from her interview now and find out what Bethenny has heard about Teresa's future and how she doesn't wish that fate on anyone:

The Real Housewives of New Jersey came up with "Zen Things I Hate About You." Just how long will this retreat last? We recap the zen and broken glass in our THG +/- review.

Melissa's Birthday Surprise

How long has this group been in Arizona?

Honestly, if I had paid big bucks to stay at this spa and had to put up with Richie and the double Joes by the pool I'd be pretty ticked off. Minus 15.

But that's nothing compared to watching Joe Gorga suck on his wife's toes for her birthday.

Minus 30. I'm not sure which was more disturbing, that or having Teresa Giudice give Melissa Gorga black lace peace sign panties for her birthday.

I doubt any amount of meditation will wipe that from my mind.

Leave it to The Real Housewives of New Jersey to turn a "Horse Whisper to a Scream." 

Read on as we break down who among the women embraced their vulnerable side and who ended up looking like a horse's a$$ in THG's official +/- recap!

Not the Horse Whisperer

Jersey is still in the house at the Mirval Resort and Spa and it may never be the same again.

But psychic advisors and gong therapy aren't what Melissa envisioned for her birthday.  "I'm done. I want a f**king cocktail by the pool in a bikini." Plus 15. No one can say she's not a girl who knows what she want.

Everyone's still recovering from the ghost whisperer when they all head out to see a horse whisperer.  Funny thing is, Wyatt the equine therapist reads these Jersey housewives and their hubbies like the comic book characters they are. Plus 22.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey head to Arizona with their "Spaghetti Western & Meatballs" indulge in not one…but two cleansing rituals.

Check out all of the dirt in THG's official +/- review.

Go Ahead, Touch It.

Teresa Guidice is riding high. Everything's going well. Cook books, Milania Haircare. Criminal charges…oops. She conveniently forgot that one. Minus 15.

But you know something's wrong when your 12 year old has to edit your fashion sense.

Shouldn't it be the mom putting a ban on skimpy bathing suits, not the other way around?
