Season 4 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey ended on a super dark note (with Teresa Giudice ambushing sister-in-law Melissa Gorga over her alleged stripper past), but with new producers on board, Melissa promises a major shift in tone for Season 5.

Earlier this month, she told the Huffington Post that the whole cast would be back for another season plus a few fresh faces — and now she’s promising that there are also fun times ahead. To quote Mrs. Gorga, “Praise Jesus!”

“There are a lot of fun scenes I have taped with my husband and family that I think are going to be hysterical,” she teases.

If anyone can make us laugh, it’s those playful Gorgas. Who can forget Melissa’s kayak tumble or Joe’s rousing game of Truth or Dare from last season? We’re still laughing about that one!
