Given the particularly toxic ending to season 4 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the reunion show wasn't likely to be cordial.
And it's not.
Judging by this preview, it's going to be a loud and nasty sequence of epithets, curses, insults and degradations.
The stage was set at the end of season 4, when Teresa Giudice was suspected of setting up her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, after a man claimed he'd once employed Gorga as a stripper.
That drama and plenty of others are dredged up, with special insults reserved for Caroline Manzo, and Jacqueline Laurita surely not the only one reduced to tears. Even the husbands mix it up, as Joe Gorga and Joe Giudice end up screaming obscenities at each other.
Part one of the three-part reunion, filmed recently in Atlantic City, premieres this Sunday at 10/9C on Bravo.
