Last week the explosive (and ulcer-inducing) trailer for the fifth season of Real Housewives of New Jersey erupted upon us. Let's just call it the Mount Vesuvius of reality television. And that's not a compliment.
Through the bulk of the filming the status quo fights of the last two seasons continued, but somewhere in the middle of things the show took an abrupt left turn and the ladies started to work hard to patch things up.
I'm not complaining – even if it is totally fake! Our source shares that although the Gorgdice family has suffered some serious damage, the desire to make amends is very real. Teresa Giudice and her parents are making an ardent effort to at least get along with Melissa Gorga because they care about Poison and want to be a part of his life. Well, that's how family works y'all! Or at least should…

"You will see Teresa's parents in this season. They refused to film last season, but they will be on this season. You will see them trying to mend their family," our source informs us. "[Teresa’s] parents will 'pretend' everything is ok because they love their son and grandchildren."
"They will never forgive Melissa. They will never like Melissa. They just have to put up with her and try," our source explains. "Joe wants them (including Teresa) to love and embrace her but, he needs to accept that is not going to happen."
"It's a pride thing with Joe Gorga. He is always looking for his parent's approval. He's never going to get it with Melissa and that is that. His parents never approved of Melissa." Yikes – that's a difficult thing to accept from all sides. Melissa has been accused of having a sketchy past and allegedly some of her previous behavior – including scheming to get cast on RHONJ – is what caused the rift.
Interestingly, the family is coming together for events at a surprisingly harrowing location!
"Melissa's daughter is making communion next weekend and the party is back at where it all began…The Manor in West Orange, NJ. That's where the famous fight was filmed between Teresa and her brother." (S3, christening!)
"Why would you go back to the same place where such bad memories were made," our source wonders? Simple: cost! "Melissa loves a 'freebie'!
"You will see her tweet and post on FB about her daughter's communion dress. Of course, the boutique gave her the dress for free. I am sure Melissa will were something from Reve (which is the main source of all her borrowing)."
Melissa works hard (or typically makes her PR do it) to get everything for free in return for a tweet or some acknowledgement to the business," the source explains. "The other woman are known for paying what they get. Melissa, is known for not paying!"
As for the other ladies, apparently Jacqueline Laurita recently went under the knife!
Should she be spending money on that? "Jacqueline has plastic surgery when she went to visit her daughter in CA. I am not sure if it was filmed or not. She had a tummy tuck."
So that's the latest RHONJ drama!
