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.

Teresa Giudice has always had a way of getting into trouble on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. And based on a first look at the show's fourth season, it seems like she's at it again.
Giudice has already publicly clashed with costar Caroline Manzo, who accused the Celebrity Apprentice contestant of trying to destroy her family by exposing a feud with her sister Dina Manzo, a former cast member who remained friendly with Giudice.
Will they make up in season 4?
