Sunday on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 7, special guest Victoria Gotti full-on dropped a BOMB on the Bravo show's cast.

What did she have to say? And about whom? You can watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online to see, or follow along for our recap below ...

First, we begin with Amber Marchese going to visit Melissa Gorga, who is grieving for her aunt, who passed away after a prolonged battle with cancer.

Then, we see Nicole Napolitano chat with her mom about Bobby. Her mom and Teresa Aprea are both worried that this lifelong bachelor will not commit.

At Teresa Guidice's home, she and Melissa are having a date night, with Teresa throwing shade every chance she gets (to the cameras, not Melissa's face).

One can understand why she's not in the best mood, even if it's Valentine's Day. Teresa and Joe Giudice have a mountain range of legal bills to pay.

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.

While frenemy Teresa Giudice struggles to make monetary ends meet, a new disturbing report confirms that Melissa Gorga is having no such problems.

According to Radar Online, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is clearing over $1 million per year these days, partly due to her salary ($250,000 per season) and partly due to her sales of her ridiculous advice book.

“Her salary and her book sales have pushed her into a 7-figure earning bracket,” Radar writes of Gorga.

Sister-in-law Giudice, of course, pleaded guilty to financial fraud this spring and will be sentenced next month.

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 ratings are at an all-time low for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and appropriately, the ladies are being paid considerably less than their West Coast counterparts.

Say hello to The Real Housewives of New Jersey New for Season 6. They are: Dina Manzo, Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Amber Marchese, Nicole Mauriello and Teresa Aprea.

Yesterday, we filled you in on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills salaries, and the astonishing thing about those figures was just how much the ladies of RHOBH earn by being professionally catty.

Today, we're flipping the script and sharing the considerably lower sums being doled out to the Housewives of Jersey for season six.

Don't get us wrong: Teresa Giudice and company are still being paid a tidy sum to share their lives with Bravo viewers, but we imagine when she found out what the other stars of the franchise were making, Teresa let her famous Italian temper flare.

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.

Earlier today, we posted the first cast portrait for The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6.

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.
