“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” Season 4 to premiere April 22 (video)


Real Housewives fans, have you been missing your Jersey girls?

After a 6-month hiatus, Caroline Manzo, Teresa Giudice,  Melissa Gorga, Kathy Wakile — and yes, Jacqueline Laurita — return to Bravo for a fourth season beginning April 20. And if you think all has been forgiven from the fiery Season 3 reunion shows … ah, you don’t really think that, do you?

Looks like even wayward Jersey housewife Dina Manzo makes at least one peacemaking cameo appearance, as well (hurray!!!), and Housewife hanger-on Kim DePaola continues to hanger-on whilst sporting some serious Lady Godiva hair extensions.

Promising to “break down the walls to reveal the truth behind all the tabloid rumors” and then some, the new season will tackle everything from the continuing implosion of Jacqueline and Teresa’s friendship (thought the season’s sneak peek photos show them jamming together hippie-style in the vineyards of Napa); Theresa getting along swimmingly to the point of tata-touching — well, and sometimes not (see video below) — with her aspiring pop star sister-in-law Michael-Jackson-to-Melissa-Gorga; Caroline refusing to get along with anyone or anything, including the number her daughter Lauren sees when she steps on the scale and the lily pad that landed on her head at her brother Jamie’s wedding; and Kathy trying desperately to keep her mind on her boundary-testing teens and her growing dessert business.

New episodes of The Real Housewives of New Jersey air Sundays beginning April 22 on Bravo.
