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 to Bravo on July 13.

And while Season 6 will feature a couple of familiar faces (Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga), along with one returning cast member (Dina Manzo), upcoming episodes will also feature a trio of newbies:

  1. Amber Marchese, an old friend of Gorga’s who is also a cancer survivor, a mother of four and a bio-behavioral studies/exercise physiology degree holder.
  2. Teresa Aprea, who remarried her first husband and who helps him run a series of restaurants.
  3. Nicole Mauriello, Teresa Aprea's twin and a divorce mother of two teenagers.

It features past regulars Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga, along with newcomers Teresa Aprea, Nicole Mauriello, and Amber Marchese.

Oh, and Dina Manzo is also on her way back to the franchise that made her famous, announcing her return in the following trailer as only she can:

The bitch is back and you can kiss my ass.

Over the course of the new season, which premieres June 6, look for marriage strife to take center stage for more many of the women, while Teresa's legal troubles send shockwaves through the series.

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?

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 ...

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.

"Well, I guess the (hairless) cat's out of the bag," Manzo, Tweeted today, a reference to her feline Grandma Wrinkles. "Yes, I'm back. Unlike the past, this time it felt 'right.' See you on Bravo, my friends. xo."

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 Laurita on Blue Carpet

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.

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."
