The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 6 premiere featured plenty of drama and a handful of new Housewives, yet somehow brought in some of the most dismal audience numbers in the series' history.

Bravo producers had hoped the drama surrounding the Teresa Giudice court case, and the addition of several new cast members would draw in viewers who had abandoned the show in past seasons.

But not even the return of Dina Manzo proved sufficient to boost RHONJ's ailing ratings. 

The season 6 premiere turned in just over 2 million viewers - about the same as when the series premiered in 2009 and all of the ladies were unknowns.

Worse, RHONJ's numbers in the key 18-49 year old demographic were lower than they've ever been.

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.

Teresa Giudice pled guilty to fraud back in March and is likely to face prison time.

Teresa's sentencing was delayed just last month following the death of her father-in-law, and along with her husband Joe, the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star will now have to wait until September to find out her fate.

Teresa and Joe Giudice Head to Court

The troubled mother of four opened up about her upcoming court date in a recent interview and not surprisingly, she says she's overcome with fear about the possibility of being locked up.

"No one can ever prepare themselves to go to prison," Teresa tells In Touch. "How could I ever prepare myself to be away from my kids? It's too terrifying for me to even think about."

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:

  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.

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 ...

Teresa Giudice is facing possible jail time due to financial fraud perpetrated by her and her husband.

So you'd think the reality star would have provided The Real Housewives of New Jersey with prime, entertaining content for the show's latest season.

But, according to a new Radar Online report, you'd be mistaken.

The Giudices Leave Court

With filming have just been completed, a Bravo insider complains that Giudice didn’t “didn’t bring it,” refusing to get into fights with her colleagues out of fear of her real-life situation.

Joe and Teresa Giudice are headed to jail but first they have to get their financial affairs in order...by screwing over their creditors to the tune of $13 million!

Teresa and Joe Giudice Head to Court

So how did the Real Housewives of New Jersey couple rack up such massive debt? By living like royalty despite the fact that they haven't had a dime to their names for years.

Court documents reveal that the Giudices live in a $1.7 million house with a Maserati, an Escalade and a Ford 350 in the garage.

Oh, that garage also houses toys such as a Sea Doo boat, Kawasaki quad and 2 go-carts.

As you may have guessed, Teresa and Joe have yet to make a single payment on most of those items and acquired them by lying to lenders - a practice that resulted in the couple's recent fraud convictions.

Teresa Giudice is probably going to jail.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her husband entered a plea of guilty this morning inside a Newark courtroom, agreeing to terms of a plea bargain in which Teresa could face under two years behind bars and Joe a minimum of three.

Details are still coming in, but TMZ reports Teresa copped to four counts (including conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bankruptcy fraud) and Joe to five (the same as his wife, plus failure to file tax returns).

Giudices Go to Court

The stars were originally indicted on a total of 41 criminal charges last year  - yes, 41! - as a result of allegedly illegal actions that took place between 2001 and 2011.

It was entertaining while it lasted, but Radar Online has now confirmed: the rivalry between Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice is over.

The sister-in-laws - who have gone at each other hard for many seasons on The Real Housewives of New Jersey - enjoyed a holiday dinner together over the weekend, with Gorga posting a photo of the event on Twitter and writing that the meal "makes me smile."

Melisa Gorga and Teresa Giudice Smiling!

“You will NOT see any Teresa and Melissa fights this season on RHONJ. Those feuds are over,” an insider tells Radar.
