There was less screaming than usual but a lot more tears as part two of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion focused on Teresa Giudice's legal troubles.
Teresa and her husband, Joe, are facing the possibility of 50 years behind bars for multiple counts of fraud, and it's clearly weighing heavily on the mother of four. "Of course this bothers me. I'm human. There's a lot of nights I cry myself to sleep," the 41-year-old admitted. "I'm worried for my family. If I fall apart, the rest of my family's gonna fall apart … I don't want them to feel any pain … I'm just like every other mom."
"I don't believe in karma. I’m Catholic. I don't know why this came to us," she continued. "The best thing you can do is learn from it … It's in God's hands."

Caroline Manzo, one of the original Real Housewives of New Jersey, has announced that she is leaving the series after five seasons.
It's been wonderful guys," the mother of three, 52, who was often the voice of reason on the show, posted on her Twitter exactly one minute after the show's reunion finale aired Sunday on Bravo.
"I've decided to leave #RHONJ this season was my last. Love and kisses to you all. Xoxoxo"

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.
