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.

We have an update on The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast salaries.

According to Radar Online insiders, new cast members Nicole Napolitano, Teresa Aprea and Amber Marchese are making $60,000 for Season 6; Dina Manzo is pulling in $100,000; Melissa Gorga is taking home $250,000.

And Teresa Giudice is making $700,000. For one season of work.

Bravo really has to stop exploiting her, doesn't it?!?

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!

Teresa Giudice on Season 6

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.

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."

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.

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.

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?

Returning stars Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga, former member Dina Manzo, and newcomers Teresa Aprea, Nicole Mauriello, and Amber Marchese!

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 ...
