With Teresa Giudice out of jail, guilty pleasure “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” will return on Bravo later this season. Original housewife Jacqueline Laurita will join Giudice, Melissa Gorga and additional cast members.
The logline: This season, Teresa looks to repair fractured relationships with her family and friends. As her release from prison brings the Giudice family back together, the reunion is short-lived as they prepare for Joe to begin his sentence at the end of March. Hoping to repair relationships with her brother and sister-in-law, Teresa reconnects with Joe and Melissa to permanently put the past behind them. Meanwhile, Jacqueline, whose main focus continues to be helping her autistic son, longs for the “Lucy and Ethel” friendship she had with Teresa and is willing to bury the past if it means a more light-hearted future.
