After months of reading about the legal woes facing Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe – including her pleading guilty to four counts of fraud – viewers were finally able to see the drama that went on behind the scenes on Sunday's Real Housewives of New Jersey.
The most heartbreaking moment came when the Giudices' 13-year-old daughter, Gia, broke down, telling her mother she understood everything that was happening.
"I obviously know what's going on," Gia said. "I'm old enough to understand."
It looks like even more drama could be in store.
Dropped star Jacqueline Laurita is returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey for a few episodes, a source confirms to PEOPLE.
"Jacqueline wasn't happy to not be returning to the show [as a cast member]. She was sad about it," an insider said.
After last week's hair-raising The Real Housewives of New Jersey in which Nicole Napolitano yanked out Amber Marchese's hair, it was the husbands' turn to brawl on Sunday.
They may be rookies, but the three newest Real Housewives of New Jersey certainly brought out old-school Jersey drama on Sunday.
The housewives attended a First Responders-themed costume party, only to witness a five-alarm fire breaking out when hostess Nicole Napolitano confronted Amber Marchese about the rumors that she heard Marchese was spreading about her being a homewrecker.
Trash, trash talk and talk Teresa Giudice didn't want to hear filled Sunday's Real Housewives of New Jersey.
"I don't go to psychics regularly," said Giudice, who went to see BFF Dina Manzo's friend and spiritual medium, James Van Praagh. "It is weird, right?"
Maybe she should have listened to her own intuition, because she didn't like what she heard about husband Joe's fraud charges.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey celebrated Christmas on Sunday night, and Santa certainly seemed to have a naughty and a nice list.
"There's something nice about being home for the holidays and out of the public eye," said an emotional Teresa Giudice, who faces possible jail time along with her husband, Joe, after pleading guilty to fraud charges. "It's all just hanging over us."
While the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast celebrate the holidays in the second episode of Season 6, cameras catch Teresa and Joe Giudice discussing the possibility of serving jail time before their fraud sentencing hearing in September.
Sunday's Season 6 premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey was filled with new blood, old blood, bad blood and – as always – big hair.
Front and center, of course, were the legal woes plaguing Joe and Teresa Guidice, who pleaded guilty to four counts of fraud in March and await sentencing in September.
"Our money's going to attorneys," said Teresa. "I had a normal life, and now I'm in this nightmare."
