It was Amber Marchese vs. Nicole Napolitano again Sunday on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, as the new cast members do their best to make a name for themselves.

Not in the way you might expect from a Bravo show, though.

With news that Jacqueline Laurita is returning to stir up drama and ratings, they upped their game on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 6.

Or did they? What played out last night, and might these events be exactly the reason producers are having Laurita return for the back half of the season?

Amber Marchese and Nicole Napolitano sat down to discuss their infamous hair-pulling fight, and at first it looked like we might see a bit of a rematch.

The body language and words were tense, and a few insults lobbed each other's way felt like the opening salvos of a war that we'd better buckle in for.

But then the unthinkable happened.

Jacqueline Laurita is coming back to join The Real Housewives of New Jersey to stir the pot this season, and some people are not happy about it.

One person in particular.

Jacqueline Laurita and Dina Manzo

In particular, Dina Manzo is so pissed about Laurita returning to the show that she said she wouldn’t have decided to join the cast again if she had known.

“Dina is furious that Jacqueline is back. She never would have come back if she knew Jacqueline was still on the show,” a source close to the situation said.

“She is mad that she’s been put in this position.”

Manzo came back for Season 6 of the struggling show despite saying, “I will never do a reality show with family ever again. It’s just not a healthy environment.”

Laurita is her sister-in-law. It's complicated.

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey, you saw Nicole Napolitano yank out Amber Marchese's hair in a fight for the ages last weekend.

It was the husbands' turn to throw down this time.

"Would you please stop spitting in my face," Marchese's husband, Jim, told Joe Gorga when the two took it outside to settle their ongoing beef.

Jim didn't attend a guys' night out due to the fact that he runs a mortgage company and can't be around Teresa and Joe Giudice. Gorga? Beyond livid.

"See that hand in my face?" asked Marchese.

"Touch me, and I'll arrest your ass."

Joe Gorga apparently felt this was disloyal and shady of him to distance himself from the group this way, but Jim was undeterred, vowing to hit back HARD.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 4 saw the new stars get in on the action like never before, proving they can hold their own.

In the borderline insanity department.

The setting was a first-responders-themed costume party, and the incident was Nicole Napolitano coming at Amber Marchese about salacious rumors.

Marchese, allegedly, had been spreading talk about her being a home-wrecker. Napolitano's twin, Teresa Aprea, got all up in her face regarding this.

Amber followed with "Let's go!" and Napolitano snapped, "I'm not your dog." They went at it like a couple of caged animals after that, dogs or not.

Even as her hair was being yanked, Marchese was still getting in digs at Napolitano, referring to her boyfriend Bobby as she screamed:

"That's why he won't marry your ass!"

"Nicole was my friend," said a distraught Amber, who added that Melissa instigated this by telling Nicole things that she said to her in confidence.

"I hope you're happy, Melissa!"

On The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 3, Teresa Giudice learned from a psychic that her husband Joe will totally be doing time.

Now there's a bombshell. Apparently, psychics watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online and read celebrity gossip just like the rest of us.

"I don't go to psychics regularly," said the show's highest-paid star, who went to see Dina Manzo's friend and spiritual medium, James Van Praagh.

"It is weird, right?"

It is.

"It'll work out fine for you," he told her. "I don't see jail."

"What do you mean for me?" Teresa Giudice replied.

"Your husband, I'm not so sure about," James said.

"I just don't know if he's going to get off from those charges ... I feel like he's definitely going to do some time. I don't see him out in the clear."

"I just got choked up," said Giudice, fighting back tears as if this were some big revelation. "I try not to think about the negative stuff … Why is this happening?"

Fraud has a tendency to backfire when uncovered?

On The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 2, the drama we saw in the premiere was largely absent in what felt like a filler installment.

Just not a lot going on in the Garden State. Fortunately, we still have Teresa Giudice pissed at Andy Cohen and lots more gossip in the present day.

It's Christmas time and that means decorating your McMansions and just going through the motions, whether you're a cast member or a viewer.

The only difference? The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast salaries are probably a lot higher than yours for doing less work. This is upsetting.

Anyway, at the Giudice residence, sassy 7-year-old Milania refuses to help Teresa and Joe put up the tree. "I am a girl, I'm not a boy," she insists.

Girl does raise a valid point right there.

Meanwhile, the Gorgas put up a fake tree in their rental home, but alas, it is too tall for the top piece. This is the biggest drama of the episode.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey are back for Season 6 Episode 1, and we saw Teresa and Joe Giudice’s legal troubles start to unfold on the premiere.

Teresa is living a nightmare, people, but she is wide awake.

Teresa Giudice: Table Flipping
And now for the classic. Teresa's face is priceless as she famously flips the table. Bravo. Bravo.

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, or even if you don't, you probably know Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice are often at odds.

Not this season, at least not now. They are no longer fighting, while Dina Manzo has returned ... but the huge change is clearly Teresa's legal woes.

With a Teresa Giudice prison sentence for fraud looming, and their lives hanging in the balance, they're leaning on their close friends and family.

Which, apparently, they still have an abundance of.

Dina Manzo and Teresa have been friends for over 20 years, and we saw them discuss how Teresa has really been handling all of her legal stresses.

Totally unscripted, off-the-cuff conversations here.

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 ...
