The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns for sixth season on Bravo July 13, and when that day comes, fans will see some different faces among familiar ones.

The half-dozen cast members of the upcoming season?

Returning stars Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga, former member Dina Manzo, and newcomers Teresa Aprea, Nicole Mauriello, and Amber Marchese!

Veterans Teresa and Joe Giudice will air their personal struggles behind their public legal battle, "fighting to keep their family intact" amid fraud charges.

Melissa and Joe Gorga will also return in July, as will Season 1 star Dina Manzo "to help her soul-sister (Giudice)" only to reveal "her own private pain."

Sounds rough. The blonde star's storyline will feature her divorce from Tommy Manzo; Caroline Manzo's estranged sister will also try "to face her fear of dating."

Surprisingly, Dina's sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita, who's been a Real Housewives of New Jersey staple for five seasons, is out for the coming year.

Also departing from the show are Kathy Wakile and Caroline Manzo, although Caroline will star in her own upcoming spinoff, Manzo'd With Children.

Seriously. That is an actual show that will be on the television.

In their place, three new cast members have been added ...

Teresa and Joe Giudice may be going to jail for a very long time.

But at least they have the support of a few reality stars!

With Teresa Giudice pleading guilty yesterday to multiple fraud counts - and expected to serve at least some time in jail in the near future - multiple members of the Real Housewives franchise have offered words of encouragement to their law-breaking colleague.

Yup. She's on her way back.

Following weeks of rumors, including the insinuation that she insisted on Jacqueline Laurita being fired, Dina Manzo has confirmed: she is on her way back to The Real Housewives of New Jersey and will be a regular on Season 6.

Dina Manzo may be returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

But in order for Manzo to come back to the series she quit in 2010, the reality star made a demand of producers: Give the boot to Jacqueline Laurita.

Jacqueline tells the latest issue of In Touch Weekly that she's aware of Dina's role in her ousting, dissing her sister-in-law to the tabloid and saying:

“I understand why Dina wouldn’t want me on the show: She doesn’t want to address family issues on-camera!”

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.

Dina Manzo has signed on for her very own reality show... to be produced by Al Roker!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum - who currently headlines HGTV's Dina's Party - will soon anchor a series based on her "new chapter" in life, following a recent split from her husband of seven years.

That's how Al Roker Entertainment describes the project, with the weatherman/producer himself adding:

"This collaboration will be an opportunity for Dina’s fans to go behind the scenes into her world - which is different than most people would expect."

Will you tune in for a Dina Manzo reality show?

Dina Manzo stunned the world on Saturday... or at least those in the world that believed she and husband Tommy Manzo were meant to be together forever.

Indeed, the former Real Housewives of New Jersey cast members dropped a bomb on Twitter, posting the following message to fans:

"My secret...I have been separated since October, my heart hurts but Tommy & I will always share a very special love. So grateful for the support of my loved ones during this time, especially my spiritual friends. You know who u are xoxo."

Thank. Goodness.

Despite not actually being a cast member on The Real Housewives of New Jersey any longer, Dina Manzo sat down this week with Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live and assured viewers: her feud with sister Caroline will eventually end.

Manzo, Dina

"I'm obviously not going to get into the reasons, but… we're all on a life journey and sometimes people's energy doesn't vibe," Dina profoundly told the host. "We're just letting it sit... It doesn't mean you hate the person or you wish bad for them."

Dina adds that the rivalry with Caroline is unrelated to Teresa Giudice, while also making a promise to fans.*

"I can guarantee you two things: one, it's going to be okay one day, we're going to be back to normal. And two is as weird as things are... if either one of us needed each other we would be there in a heartbeat. That's where the family bond will never be broken."

(*Seriously, is anyone actually a fan of these people?)

On part two of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion special, Caroline Manzo went off on Teresa Giudice for a number of reasons. Among them: Caroline blames her castmate for the disintegrated relationship she has with her sister, Dina.

How does Dina feel about this publicized mess? In a new blog entry titled blog post labeled "The Truth!," this former Real Housewife writes that she wants to "put all this to rest," and starts by addressing critics:

"Just so you know I've been offered a SERIOUS amount of money to sell this to many outlets BUT I chose to do it for free here. So all of you who have something to say can shove it."

Kathy Wakile and Teresa Giudice

Alright then. Glad that's cleared up. But what about Dina's take on Teresa's recent behavior, which includes a diss of Caroline in her latest cookbook?

"Was it necessary for her to write that stuff in her book? Probably not, but I don't think it was written with malice either," Dina said. "So there you have it, Teresa had nothing to do with me staying away from everyone, I even stayed away from her too."

Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo went at it Sunday night, as part of the totally unscripted Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion special.

But Dina Manzo - who quit the show two years ago, but remains pals with Teresa and sisters with Caroline - wants to make one thing clear: she has nothing to do with this feud, writing on her Facebook page yesterday:

"I'm not involved in their drama, I removed myself from all of that a long time ago but somehow still get dragged in."

Caroline Manzo and Dina Manzo

But, hey, will Dina piggyback on it and create some headlines for herself anyway? Of course!
