Fraud. Fights. Facelifts. Infidelity. And that was just part one of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion on Sunday night.
Host Andy Cohen kicked things off by asking Teresa Giudice, 41, if the other housewives – Caroline Manzo, Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita and Kathy Wakile – had been supportive since learning that she and husband, Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice, 43, could face 50 years in prison after being charged in a 39-count fraud indictment.
"They all reached out to me," the mother of four revealed. "It's touching."

The Real Housewives of New Jersey finale may have ultimately ended in peace, but it didn't last long.
The stars of the reality series bring the drama – and plenty of tears – when they sit down with Andy Cohen for the season 5 reunion show, which airs Oct. 6 (8 p.m. ET) and Oct. 13 (8 p.m. ET/PT) on Bravo.
In an exclusive first look at the upcoming two-part special, the cast discusses some of the season’s most talked about moments, including the status of Teresa Giudice's tumultuous relationship with her brother Joe Gorga and her feelings toward sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. Plus, Dr. V makes an appearance to talk about the outspoken cast's trip to Lake George where they attempted to make amends.

They're as thick as thieves and now, they've got a show to prove it.
Caroline Manzo and her brood will be followed by a crew of cameras in Manzo'd with Children, a spin-off pilot that Bravo announced Tuesday.
The show will follow Caroline's doting husband Al, her son Albie's exploits on the dating scene, daughter Lauren's deliberations about marrying long-term beau Vito Scalia, and son Chris's latest entrepreneurial schemes – you might remember his infamous stripper/car wash idea from Real Housewives of New Jersey.

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.

The most dramatic crop of reality TV women in the Garden State are returning to Bravo, as The Real Housewives of New Jersey comes back for its fifth season, which premieres June 2 (8 p.m. ET).
All five of the main ladies – Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, and Kathy Wakile – are slated to star in what Manzo tells PEOPLE, is "our best season yet."

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.

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.

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.

When celebrity chef and designer Jaime Laurita wed his husband Rich Lane last summer at their home outside Chicago, his sister, Caroline Manzo, gave a poignant speech that brought tears to the grooms' eyes.
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."
