After months and months of waiting, Season 5 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey finally begins this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo, and now we have our first look at the upcoming episode. In the sneak peek clip below, Caroline Manzo confronts Joe Gorga about his damaged relationship with his sister, Teresa Giudice.

Telling Joe “I know what you’re going through,” Caroline also warns the younger Gorga not to let his problems with Teresa affect the relationships the Giudice and Gorga children have with one another.

Caroline who has been feuding with her sister Dina Manzo for years — lets Joe know that he is “doing the right thing” by bringing the cousins together, and later tells the Bravo cameras, “I've been there. I’ve been arguing with a sibling and it hurts, but it’s much bigger than the four of them.”   

Because Caroline knows that the fighting is really hurting both families, she agrees to go talk to Teresa on Joe’s behalf. We never thought we’d see the day when Caroline and Teresa spoke again, but we’ve gotta give props to Mama Manzo for doing the right thing.

Check out the sneak peek below and then share your thoughts!
