The three-minute sneak peek starts, perhaps appropriately, with Teresa Giudice and Dina Manzo getting bird poop all over their faces. On purpose! We also see a mini dessert war between Teresa and Kathy Wakile, who will be making only occasional appearances this season. Kathy’s sister Rosie also returns, showing off her 30-pound weight loss. Melissa Gorga, on the other hand, shows off an extreme fear of camels (!).
Newbie Amber Marchese is apparently going to stir many pots this season; at one point she spreads the word that Joe was engaged before marrying Melissa, which was apparently news to Melissa. Even Amber’s own friends say she’s closer to “Fifty Shades of Amber” than Leave It to Beaver.
Amber’s hubby is just as drama-prone. As Dina calmly puts it to the cameras at one point, "Amber's husband Jim seems f--king nuts."
Dina is a goddess, and it’s so great to have her quiet, self-assured shade back in business. At one point, one of the new twins (does it matter which one yet?) goes around sharing her first impressions of the group; she says she likes everyone, then calls Dina an “ice princess.” Dina softly responds to the camera, “I know this b-tch didn’t just call me an ice princess. I prefer ‘ice queen.’ Get it right, if you’re going to insult me.” Damn right. Queen Elsa is ready to rule.
Of course, Season 6 will also focus a good amount on the Giuidice’s legal woes, which could include jail time for Joe. Toward the end of the video, Teresa tells her husband, “Me without you doesn’t work. This family cannot function without you." The promo ends with young Gia sobbing in her father's arms, saying she loves him so much.
So we’re in for a dramatic, emotional season. There may not be any table flipping, but they’ve already teased some hair pulling — it’s just from the newbies, not the OGs like Teresa, who have enough real-life drama without having to amp it up for the cameras.
Watch the extended sneak peek below. What do you think? Who are you most excited to see in action, or are you shrugging this season off?
