The second half of the new season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is going to be an explosive one! Shocking, right? This afternoon Bravo released a mid-season trailer to get fans excited about the upcoming episodes and it doesn’t disappoint.
First, we have the return of Jacqueline Laurita. Jacqueline will be there for Teresa Giudice as she faces the outcome and repercussions of pleading guilty to fraud in Federal Court and also to share more about her family’s journey with autism and the struggles (and triumphs) that accompany it.
Teresa deals with the aftermath of pleading guilty and her potential sentencing and also contemplates sending the Giudice head of household, aka Milania, off to boarding school. She’s kidding. We think.
The much anticipated sixth season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey kicked off Sunday night on Bravo. While most of us sat in the comfort of our own home for free (well, save for the cable bill and mortgage, unless you’re living the Bravo lifestyle and have stopped paying your bills) to watch the premiere, a bunch of fans paid $100 to drink Fabellini and watch the premiere almost in the same room as Joe and Teresa Giudice, Jim and Amber Marchese, Joe and Melissa Gorga, and Dina Manzo. Crazy.
Velocity 1 Media hosted the Real Housewives of New Jersey premiere party at the Pure Restaurant and Lounge in New Jersey. Proceeds from the tickets go to Project Ladybug, Dina‘s charity, and the Deborah Hospital Foundation.
According to a local news source, Dina was the only star who went out of her way to mingle with the guests. She regularly came out of the VIP room, where the RHONJ stars were stowed away, to meet and pose for pictures with fans. Melissa and Amber mingled with guests at the end of the event only. Juicy made a brief appearance by the ropes guarding the VIP room, looking like a bouncer, I’m sure. Teresa hid in the back of the VIP room all night.
UPDATE: Several party attendees reached to tell us that the local news report was not accurate. Many have shared that Teresa did not hide from the guests and that all the ladies mingled.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey ladies have been on a media blitz this week to promote the premiere of season 6, which kicks off on Sunday night.
Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and Dina Manzo stopped by to chat with the ladies of The View this week. Teresa Tweeted the photo above, “Great interview at @theviewtv with @JennyMcCarthy @SherriEShepherd.”
During her interview Teresa shared that she’s focused on her family and grieving her father-in-law. “This past year has been like a roller coaster. It’s been an amazing education on the way our legal system works. Right now what I’m focusing on is my family. I just lost my father-in-law. My husband, not only did he lose his dad but he lost his best friend…that’s what I’m focusing on my family.”
Jacqueline Laurita returning to Real Housewives of New Jersey for season 6? According to daughter Ashlee Holmes' new blog post, yes!
Jacqueline was reportedly done and over the craziness of the show after five long drama-filled seasons, but it looks like that isn't so! We heard reports of film crews at her home, but many assumed she was possibly filming bits for Caroline's spinoff show or another project of her own. But Ashlee seems to confirm that Jacs will be on the show.
Last week, the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast gathered for a charity event for Project Ladybug. Dina Manzo launched Project Ladybug in 2007 “with a wish to bring financial and emotional hope to children and their families undergoing rigorous medical treatments."
Following the event, Melissa Gorga tweeted many thanks to those who helped make the event a success, including a shout out to DJ Pauly D. "@DJPaulyD thank you for being so generous with your time and donating a meet & greet to Project Ladybug!! Much appreciated!"
We hope this event was as successful and drama-free as the one in November. Dina Manzo, Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Nicole Napolitano, Teresa Napolitano, and more shared a few snapshots of the event. Check them out below – and let us know what you think of Teresa's dress. We're not feeling it.

I admit my surprise over the official admission. Bravo normally loves to keep those rumors flying right up until the season premiere of the Housewives shows, never confirming or denying the new and/or returning cast members.
