The only H'Wives whose brawls even hold a candle to the Real Housewives of Atlanta are the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and the First Ladies of the Armpit of America will return this summer to Bravo on May 16.
The Season 3 premiere will be a super-sized 90-minute episode that catches up with matriarch Caroline, plus Jacqueline and Teresa, along with new cast members Melissa Gorga, Teresa's sister-in-law, and Kathy Wakile, Teresa's first cousin.
Yikes, it looks like the Giudices are taking over — this isn't a Manzo-run show anymore! And as you may or may not know, Teresa's originally from Paterson (aka, the wrong side of the tracks for those of you who don't hail from the Garden State), so hopefully her family members are equally trashy.
We'll see the New Jersey Housewives celebrate the holidays as well as get to see their reactions as their precious little 23-year old-babies finally leave the nest. And, of course, what would any sector of the Real Housewives franchise be without the obligatory cat fights. Unfortunately, Danielle Staub is off the show (booo), but Bravo assures there will be plenty of drama left in her wake.
