Ever since news broke that Jacqueline Laurita will return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey, reaction from fans and current cast members has been decidedly mixed.

With Teresa Giudice headed to prison for 15 months, producers were left with few options with regard to women who are available and might be able to bring a tenth of the drama that Queen T brought to the table.

Laurita seemed a safe - if not perfect - choice, but now it seems that adding her to the cast may have left execs with another vacancy to fill.

Sources say Dina Manzo was furious to learn Laurita will be returning to the show, and now it looks like her anger may have prompted her to quit the series.

If you thought the fact that they've both been sentenced to prison would inspire Teresa and Joe Giudice to focus on family to get their  acts together, well...you don't know the Giudices.

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online then you know the pattern - Joe does something awful; Teresa whines but doesn't do anything about it; Joe gets hammered.

Sources close to the family say that that's pretty much what's happening now that the family's facing it's biggest chellenges to date. Except now that Teresa's been sentenced to 15 months in prison, she might finally take action and send Joe a message.

Yes, sources say Teresa and Joe are headed for divorce. It's a rumor we've heard before, so we're not sure if it's to be believed or not. 

We do, however, believe that there's nothing but truth to the rumors of why the Giudices are having problems:

Last night on Bravo's The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 13, the fallout from the Florida trip continued to ripple through the cast.

The setting is Dina Manzo‘s charity event, Project Ladybug, and Teresa Giudice is back in the middle of things in the aftermath of the "disgusting rumor.”

Did Teresa Aprea‘s mom hook up with Rino Aprea?

That's what Victoria Gotti alleged, but it's Teresa who took heat for spreading this on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 13 Sunday.

Kathy Wakile and Jacqueline Laurita agree that no matter what issues you have with someone, bringing up anyone's mother in a feud crossed the line. Then again ...

Presumably so would boning someone's. Just sayin'.

Teresa Aprea and Nicole Nipolitano, her twin sister, are so pissed at the other Teresa in any case, blaming her for her role in making this story public.

“They’re hot-headed Italians,” Teresa Giudice says.

That they are, but if you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, is that not a textbook case of the prison-bound pot calling the kettle black? Yes and no.

Last night on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 12, Teresa Giudice and her ongoing legal problems were only half the story.

With the real housewife in real trouble, getting sentenced to 15 months for fraud, it was hard to focus on much else, but the Bravo show tried.

Fortunately, they had a good side plot, as the rumor that Victoria Gotti told earlier in the season came full circle when Jim Marchese said it out loud:

Teresa Aprea's husband, Rino, had slept with her mom in the recent past.

"You don't talk about mothers!" said Melissa Gorga, as twins Nicole Napolitano and Aprea listened, stunned, to the story about their own. "No! No!"

"Don't you dare talk about my mother," said a crying Aprea. "I'm done."

Sounds like Rino did a lot more than talk to her, too. Just saying.

"That's why I was trying to shut this down all night long," said fellow cast member Dina Manzo on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 12.

Teresa Giudice is going to jail for 15 months.

Joe Giudice is going to jail for 41 months.

First, however, the law-breaking couple is heading to Bravo, as the network confirms these Real Housewives of New Jersey stars will sit for an exclusive interview with Andy Cohen on Monday night.

The Giudices pleaded guilty in March to a number of financial fraud allegations. They were sentenced yesterday inside a New Jersey courtroo, with Judge Esther Salas telling Teresa at the time:

"I think a period of confinement is absolutely necessary in this case. I don't honestly believe that you understand or respect the law. I need to send a message. In the eyes of the law, it doesn't matter who you are. There are consequences to pay."

Seven months after pleading guilty to fraud, Teresa and Joe Giudice will go before a judge for sentencing today.

Sources say Teresa is confident she won't go to prison, but the Real Housewife could face up to 27 months behind bars.

The Giudices Leave Court

Teresa will be allowed to plead her case one last time at her sentencing today, and rather than go into specifics regarding her case, she'll reportedly try to convince the judge that everything he's seen on Bravo is a lie, and she's actually a nice person.

"The image is little more than a carefully crafted fiction, engineered by Bravo through scripted lines and careful editing," reads a prepared statement obtained by TMZ.  

We'll see how well Teresa remembers that scripted line. She certainly has a lot riding on the "I'm actually nice" defense: In addition to her own sentence, her husband Joe Giudice could be deported after serving up to four years in prison.

On Sunday night's The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 11, a tropical storm tore through Florida and left few survivors in its wake.

In a manner of speaking, of course.

It's not only when you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online. Every Real Housewives vacation anywhere is meant to stir up two things:

  1. Funny fish-out-of-water imagery
  2. Epic fights

This time, the scenery of Boca Raton, Florida, wasn't exotic enough for the humor of the O.C. ladies' trip to Bali, but Jim Marchese sure delivered on #2.

Relieved and cancer-free, Amber Marchese decided she and her hubby would come to Florida on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 11.

They came, and with a vengeance.

Jacqueline Laurita returned to Bravo on Sunday's The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 10, and she is back with a vengeance.

Her comeback dovetailed with the drama surrounding Teresa Giudice, whom Jacque says she reached out to twice recently, but received little response.

"You are weighing heavily on my mind," said Laurita, reading to former housewife Kathy Wakile one of the lengthy text messages she had sent Giudice.

"You were like a sister to me," she went on. "I wish I could be there to hug you."

Teresa's reply: "Thank you for thinking of me and my family. Kisses."

"When you pour your heart out and all you get is, 'Thank you. Kisses,' that's closing the book for me," said Wakile on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 10.

Still Jacque remained somewhat sympathetic and supportive.

On The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 9, the Garden State ladies each dealt with some life changes that are nothing short of monumental.

Dina bid farewell to her assistant Luke, while Amber received surprising news from her doctor and Teresa and Rino Aprea faced a medical scare of their own.

And we don't even know where to start with Joe and Teresa Giudice ...

Whatever you think of the contrived drama you normally see when you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, things got real Sunday.

Five years removed from her first diagnosis with breast cancer, Amber Marchese was told by her doctors that her most recent results were inconclusive.

She should come back in for more testing, she was told.

That's not something anyone ever wants to hear.

Sunday on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 8, Joe and Teresa Giudice pleaded guilty to fraud charges that could land them behind bars.

That we were expecting, as it's made headlines for months. What you won't see coming when you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online?

One of her fellow cast members' reaction to the bombshell.

Amber Marchese, for one, is already crying on the phone before Teresa even answers, and when Giudice does, is more annoyed than anything.

“Maybe it was time of the month?” Teresa wonders.

Amber tries to gather her composure, before peppering Teresa with questions and offering support. Then she hangs up and starts crying again.

Meanwhile, Melissa Gorga and Dina Manzo whisk Teresa away for a trip to Florida, because Bravo decided it would be good "to get her mind off things."

Marchese, who’s been fighting with twins Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea, is coming too. As are they. To "get them over this hump," we're told.

Because that happens on the Housewives.
