Get ready for The Real Housewives of New Jersey!

The newest cast of Housewives is close-knit and includes friends, a pair of sisters -- who married brothers! -- and their sister-in-law. The show is set to premiere May 12 (11 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

From left to right, the women of The Real Housewives of New Jersey are ...

Jacqueline Laurita: A former cosmetologist, she is now a stay-at-home mom, but still loves to pamper herself. She has a teenage daughter from her previous marriage and a 6-year-old son with her husband Chris, who owns wholesale apparel businesses and is brother to Caroline and Dina.



Teresa Giudice: Born and raised in New Jersey, her husband Joe owns a successful construction company. Together they have three young daughters, who take up much of her time. A friend of Dina and Caroline, she also loves to shop, get spa treatments and spend time at her beach house on the Jersey Shore.

Danielle Staub: "You either love me or you hate me, there is no in between," says the single mom of two daughters. She prides herself as one of the first female American Express Black card members in New Jersey. She is also active in her local parish and regularly attends mass. She and Jacqueline are friends.

Dina Manzo: Founder of the nonprofit Project Ladybug, which helps children with cancer, she's also an interior designer, an event planner, mother and best friends with her sister Caroline. Her husband Tommy works with his brother (Caroline's husband) at their family's catering business.

Caroline Manzo: She's a mother of three and own a real estate firm and a line of children's accessories. Described as a "feisty spitfire," she's Dina's sister and is on the board of Project Ladybug. She's married to Albert Manzo, brother of Dina's husband Tommy. Dina and Caroline's brother is Jacqueline's husband Chris.
