We are less than two months away from the Season 6 premiere of the Real Housewives of New Jersey on July 13, and the anticipation is sky-high. Stars Dina Manzo and Melissa Gorga recently chatted with E! News about what's to come during the Upfronts, plus Dina dished on what made her finally return to the Bravo hit.

Actually, Dina revealed that Andy and company had been after her for some time now, but that it was her strengthened friendship with bestie, Teresa Giudice, that sealed the deal.

"This year, it kind of felt right between the changes going on in my life, and Teresa and I have organically gotten closer this past summer because of what she's going through… And they asked me last-minute. I came in last-minute," she explained.

Meanwhile, Melissa is also on good terms with Teresa, but feels that the cast's newcomers will provide plenty of drama.

"Obviously with what my sister-in-law is going through, I think the drama is irrelevant at this point and it's nonsense. When push comes to shove, we're family and I'm here to back her up, so is her brother," Melissa said, adding, "I think where you're going to get drama is with these new girls that are coming in."

Dina agreed, chiming in, "They're a lot to handle, but they're a lot of fun. They're great TV. Their one-liners are amazing and they don't even realize how funny they are."

We can't wait to meet them!
