Remember that Lindsay Lohan movie "Freaky Friday" where the mom became the kid and the kid suddenly morphed into the mom role after they were both struck by lightening or something? Yeah – that was last night's episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey!

As the adults continued to behave childishly and bicker pettily over everything imaginable, the kids were able to give them a little lesson in communication, letting bygones be bygones, and focusing on the positive! 

Before we get to all that, things begin with the cast recovering from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. While none of them lost their primary homes, Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga both had their shore homes damaged. "My house… what happened??" they both wail – as a flood of last summer's empty bronzing bottles and sequined bikinis wash over their feet. 'All my marble deck furniture like suuuunk! Waaaah… and what about my rhinestone encrusted jet ski Joeeew' Ok – so the editors cut that out, but you KNOW that's what really happened!

First of all, yes we heard the rumors that Teresa Giudice's alleged cooking-based spinoff is happening and in the casting phases, buuuuut… we're still investigating that! 

Regarding a so-called Madame Juicy spinoff, Andy Cohen was questioned and played coy. 

“Maybe, you never know,” Andy hinted to Wetpaint. “We don’t like to spin everybody off, we like to go slowly.”

In other words; brace yourselves because you know – and I know – it's coming. Teresa will be spun-off! Rumor has it, Teresa doesn't want a spinoff based on her personal life, but Bravo is hoping to capture the Joe Giudice's trial and how that will potentially affect Teresa's family and life. 

In other news concerning the Real Housewives of New Jersey star: tonight is the season premiere! Teresa will not only be torturing or gracing us with her presence (depending on how you look at it) on tonight's epic premiere, she'll also be appearing on WWHL. Pace yourself with the Fabellinis, kids!

Real Housewives of New Jersey has some of the best "extras" in the Housewives business. C'mon… what would this show be without Kim D? Nothing and you know it!

Oh the desperate hanger-ons that will do anything for a slice of Bravo camera infamy. They're nefarious, they're brazen, they will stop at nothing to take down a Housewife! 

As we are T -1 day until the epic premiere, we count down the best extras ever to appear on this show!

Remember Season 1 of Real Housewives of New Jersey? When all was sweet and innocent. Ok, no I don't remember that either, but we can pretend!

Way back when, the ladies seemed just a tacky hotmess of over-spending, leopard print, and polyester. Little did we know, little did we know… 

With T -3 Days to go until the premiere, today we celebrate the origins of species, and by that I mean the beginnings of an era known as New Jersey Housewives. Behold their evolution…

Celebrity Sightings In New York City - May 30, 2013

The cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey stopped by the Today show this morning to chat with Hoda and Kathie Lee about what we can expect this season. 

Kathie Lee points out right away that Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are peacefully sitting side by side.  She asks if there has been any thawing between the volatile sisters in law.  Teresa shares, "we're in a good place now.  When you watch the show you'll see how we got there. You'll see our journey."  Melissa chimes in with, "it was a long road to get to where we are.  When see us in the premiere, you see us how we left off at the reunion."  So, expect fighting and hostile insanity. 

Kathie Lee asks what initially caused the rift between them.  Melissa says it was "the whole strippergate thing and the set up" and Teresa jokes that it was all over "sprinkle cookies".

Last night Andy Cohen sat down the ever-so-crazy ladies of Real Housewives of New Jersey for a little tell-all dish session and some word association. Word association was the best part and if Teresa Giudice's skill at the game is any indication of how she did on the SAT's, well… errrr… yeah. 

Other than word association, the flashback photos were A-MAZ-ZING. Lord knows I love an 80's Jem & The Holograms hairstyle. And speaking of 80's, 'Vacations all I ever wanted; Vacation time to get away… from RHONJ before it even started!' (Courtesy of The Bangles).

There's been a lot of speculation as of late about what Housewives earn. A recently published report claimed that Teresa Giudice was far out-earning her Real Housewives of New Jersey peers.

Well, a very reliable source just confirmed EXCLUSIVELY to Reality Tea that the recently reported RHONJ salaries are not true! In fact – they're totally off base. 

"All 5 RHONJ cast members, Teresa, Melissa, Caroline, Jacqueline and Kathy made the same amount this season – $600k. That wasn't always the case but for season 5 they are all on the same salary," our source shares.
