If the trailer is any indication, the fifth season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey will be full of its signature screaming matches, brawls and tears.
Or as Teresa Giudice put it on her Facebook Friday, "Um, wow. My heart is racing."
This season, Melissa Gorga seems to be the root of everyone's problems. (Watch the full trailer below.)
"My parents come to the house and they look at you like you're the devil," Melissa's husband Joe says in a clip in between tears and Melissa's provocative dancing.

Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Jacqueline Laurita, her husband Christopher and Joe Gorga are facing criminal charges after a bloody, sink-throwing brawl reportedly broke out at a grand opening party for Kim DePaola's new clothing store in Ridgewood, N.J., on Saturday.
The trio allegedly attacked a guest after he made fun of the Lauritas' son Nicholas, 3, who suffers from autism, the couple revealed last year. Bravo cameras were reportedly rolling throughout the fight.
According to the Bergen Record, Ridgewood Municipal Judge David Pfund determined there is probable cause to charge the Lauritas and Gorga with assault and terroristic threats after the alleged attack against John Karagiorgis of Paramus, N.J.

It wouldn't be a Posche fashion show without the drama, and in the season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, there's plenty of name-calling, finger-pointing and bleeping to go around.
After last week's episode, during which a man appeared claiming to have employed Melissa Gorga as a stripper, everyone is all riled up. Was Teresa Giudice involved in setting up her sister-in-law? Joe Gorga seems to think so.
But he's also steaming mad at Posche owner Kim D., who manages to insert herself in all the drama, too.
"You're the scum of the Earth," Joe tells Kim D. outside the show, while Caroline Manzo and Melissa look on.

Jacqueline Laurita had tried for years to have another baby, so when she finally welcomed son Nicholas three years ago, the proud mom celebrated his every achievement.
But then, at around 18 months old, Nicholas began regressing with his speech and motor skills, then refusing to answer to his name or notice people enter a room.
"We had no idea what was going on," the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who hid her son's medical issues from the reality cameras as she continued taping season 4 last year, tells PEOPLE exclusively.
After an agonizing wait to see multiple doctors, the Lauritas got a diagnosis: Nicholas is autistic.

Who's Joe Giudice talking to?
The husband of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has been caught on camera using some highly offensive language while speaking about his wife.
While the New Jersey cast, including the Manzos, the Lauritas, the Wakiles and the Gorgas, are all in Napa, Calif., to celebrate Caroline Manzo's 50th birthday, Joe excuses himself to take a phone call – for work, he says. (Watch a clip of the footage below.)
What he says on the phone at first – in English – to the person on the other end isn't necessarily incriminating. But once he sees his wife walking over to him, the name-calling begins.

Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita haven't exactly been close lately, but no one could have predicted that their issues run this deep.
Case in point: On last night's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, viewers were treated to a hefty Teresa vs. Jacqueline showdown which started innocently ... but ended disastrously.

That speech, which you can watch below now, will air on Bravo's The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sunday (10 p.m. ET).
"I was thrilled," New Jersey's tough yet tender matriarch Manzo says of finding out her brother was going to tie the knot. "Everybody wants to feel accepted, loved, at peace, at home in their life choices. It was great ... for him and Rich to finally feel like their relationship is recognized."
