If you watched the most recent episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, you may have been moved by a touching scene in which Teresa gave her eldest daughter Gia a diamond ring that had been in their family for generations.

It was a rare moment of tenderness from a woman who's best known for her raging temper and constant legal problems.

Teresa and Gia Giudice

The only problem is - the whole thing was faked.

"The diamond ring had been given to Teresa about a year ago by a jeweler in New Jersey," a source close to the show tells Radar Online. "Teresa wanted to give Gia the ring on camera to give publicity to the jeweler."

And we're gonna go ahead and assume that Teresa received something in exchange for that "publicity." Disguising shameless product placement as a heartfelt moment with your daughter - classy move, Teresa!

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.

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?

Last night's Christmas episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey featured Joe and Teresa Giudice going about their holiday business while staring down the possibility prison time for fraud charges.

To say the Giudices have a lot on their plate these days would be a colossal understatement, but believe it or not, their problems may have just gotten worse.

Reports emerged today that Bravo executives are seriously considering the idea of firing Teresa from the show that made her famous.

With prison looming and four young children to support, now would be the worst possible time for the Giudice family to lose Teresa's $700,000 salary.

However, the show's declining ratings, coupled with Housewife's diva-like behavior have reportedly led producers to consider dropping her from the cast.

Sources say Teresa's recent feud with Andy Cohen over comments the Bravo president made on Watch What Happens Live may have been the final straw.

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

Of course, Teresa and husband Joe are on the hook for a lot of financial fraud, facing an upcoming prison sentence and unable to splurge like they used to with this cash.

You've really gotta love/completely despise Teresa Giudice.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member could be facing years in jail for financial fraud. She's lucky to be a free woman at the moment, let alone someone earning six figures for starring on a reality show.

But Giudice still has something to whine about: she feels exploited by Bravo!

According to a Radar Online source, Teresa can't believe producers are taking advantage of "her legal trouble for ratings,” which may be the most ridiculous complaint we've ever heard.

What, exactly, did Giudice think the show would center on when she signed up for Season 6?!?

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.
