The drama never stops on the Real Housewives of New Jersey and, even though it's often trivial and petty, sometimes the show touches on some serious topics. In a recent sneak peak, a man is seen asking Albert, Caroline Manzo's hubby, if he was ever abused.

We're hoping the answer is no, but based on a recent interview with Us Magazine, we can't help but speculate that there may be a story there.

While discussing the upcoming season, Caroline reveals, "My husband opens up a little bit about things … and I think the viewers will be shocked..."

She goes on to elaborate that people will be surprised to hear him sharing so much about his personal life, considering he's been pretty quiet the first four seasons of the show.

Do you think Albert has a troubled past?

Watch the interview below and then tell us your thoughts.
