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?

Would Teresa Giudice have the guts to flip a table on Victoria Gotti? Can supermodel Cheryl Tiegs outlast former Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza, who is four decades her junior? Who'll face the music first – Clay Aiken or Debbie Gibson?
Those are just a few of the mouth-watering matchups expected on the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice, premiering Feb. 12 on NBC. PEOPLE confirmed several of the contestants back in October, but the cast was officially revealed Wednesday.
"I just think we have a major group of celebrities, and we have a very iconic group," says the show's host, Donald Trump. "This is the best cast we've ever had, the biggest cast, and it's going to be special."

There's trouble brewing this Christmas for Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa and Joe Giudice.
On Tuesday, a grand jury in Passaic County, N.J., handed down a two-count indictment against Joe Giudice, a former developer. The charge includes one count of wrongfully using identifying information of another, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, and one count of impersonation, which can carry up to 18 months in prison.
The indictment alleges that last year, Giudice used his brother Pietro Giudice's information, including a marriage and birth certificate, to obtain a driver's license at the Paterson, N.J., department of motor vehicles. His own license had been suspended at that time following a DUI.

Teresa Giudice may be known as the main chef in her family, but sister-in-law Melissa Gorga also enjoys time well spent in the kitchen.
In fact, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star tells PEOPLE she can cook up a mean linguine dish – and mix an equally delicious cocktail.
"I love cooking in the kitchen with my family, with everyone picking at the food before it makes it to the table," the Voli vodka ambassador tells PEOPLE.
As for her signature dish, she says it's "a traditional family recipe" best sipped with a pomegranate Voli martini, which she calls "light, refreshing, sweet and sour."
She also says Teresa's been a big help and teacher in the kitchen. "I am a good cook, but nothing compares to my sister," Gorga says. "She is a pro. She sometimes teaches me her secret recipes."

Everyone's always pressing Dina Manzo for dirt about her old show, the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Now, the former cast member is coming clean – in what she claims will be the last time she'll ever speak about the Bravo show.
"It's a shame this TV show used to be about our lives and now some lives are just about a TV show. That's not how it should be," Manzo, 39, writes in a lengthy blog post on her website.
Manzo, now host of HGTV's event-planning show Dina's Party, recaps why she left the Housewives – she needed to escape "all of the toxic behavior" – and admit she distanced herself from all of the housewives after her exit.
She then briefly weighs in on the current war between Teresa Guidice and Caroline Manzo.

Talk turned especially explosive when Caroline Manzo revealed that Giudice confided in her that she never planned to make up with her brother, Joe Gorga, and had called him "an a------."
"I don't get Caroline's problem with me," Giudice tells PEOPLE in a new interview. "I never did anything to intentionally hurt people."

"eww getting some MEAN tweets," Dina, who left the show in season 2, Tweeted. "I didn't take sides, don't assume~didn't even know they were not getting along until recently~I'm not involved."
After previews of an explosive – and emotional – New Jersey reunion hit the web, there was speculation that Caroline and Dina's relationship was strained because of disagreements over their friendship with Giudice.

Oh, how things have changed!
In a sneak peek at part one of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion show, one-time friends Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice are at each other's throats.
The only two original Housewives in attendance (Jacqueline Laurita refused to participate) shed tears, shouted insults and accused each other of lying and their turning backs on their families. They also tackled Teresa's husband Joe's legal problems and Caroline's relationship with her sister, Dina Manzo, who quit the show in season 2.
