"I cry a lot on the show," the tough Jersey girl reveals.

Teresa Giudice and husband Joe Giudice
When it comes to family, Teresa Giudice is letting her guard down. "You're going to see a totally different side of me. It's really sad," the Fabulicious author confides to E!Online about what fans can expect this season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. "I cry a lot on the show and it's very hard for me."

RHONJ returns tonight for its third season, and viewers will meet Kathy Wakile, Teresa's cousin, and Melissa Gorga, who's married to Teresa's brother Joe Gorga. Viewers will get a glimpse of the bad blood between the sisters-in-law and the Joes, but they didn't start out as such bitter enemies. "I wanted [my brother] to get married so bad," Teresa explains. "[My brother and I] always said we wanted our kids to grow up together. And I really wanted her to become the sister I never had."

It may be hard to believe now, but years ago Teresa asked Melissa to be Gabriella's godmother. My how times have changed; on tonight's extended 90 minute premiere episode, viewers will see the siblings and their respective spouses square off in an explosive confrontation. "RHONJ premiere tonight," T tweets. "Saw it this weekend...unbelievably heartbreaking...wow..."

We are all pulling for you Teresa. No idea why both of the new wives are related to you, but hope you stay strong and don't let others try to push you down. You were on the show first, and no one should be so jealous of you and take so much out on you and your family. I was a big Danielle fan last season, but I am pulling for you this season!

Teresa, you handled yourself very well. All families come with their own drama at times, but the one who speaks and treats kindly ultimately is the bigger person. You handled yourself with grace and love tonight. Keep loving and hopefully the other side will reciprocate.

Teresa fan!

Teresa you showed so much class tonight. You are a survivor and a winner, and a wonderful role model for your girls. You stand by your man and Joe makes me smile when I watch you two on the show. I am sad for your brother and his wife. Your sister in law seems so jealous of you. I know you will figure out a way to make things work for you and your brother. I look forward to watching you win at life this season and overcome any and all obstacles thrown your way. BRAVO! To you and Joe.

I felt so bad for your husband in tonight's episode!! You guys are still my favorite. It seems like your brother and sister in law came on the show just to bash you guys and its not fun to watch. Melissa seems like the knew danielle.

From just a glimpse into this family tonight, it seems to boil down to assumptions and misunderstandings. For example, Teresa' brother and his wife seem to think Teresa and Joe are just showing(or not showing)up late because they don't really care. From watching the episode, that is not the case. Then combine the pent up anger from the miscommunications and misunderstandings and the fact Teresa's brother is just plain drunk when Teresa goes up to congratulate them.... Of course, chaos ensues. It's too bad, but you can tell this family loves each other a lot. As long as they start to talk and work it out it will be fine. No one is perfect!

I wrote a comment however, it didn't show up. I watched the opening of the new season of the New Jersey Housewives. I was shocked and sad to see Teresa's family treated as they were by her brother and his wife's family. I won't watch anymore as I think they act like criminals. Teresa doesn't deserve this nor her precious mother and father. Her brother is a thug just like Danielle's men friends are. I am shocked Bravo felt like they needed to show such an awful part of Teresa's family. Joe is a fine husband and father and it would have been great to continue watching Caroline, her family and Teresa and Joe's life without the thug of Teresa's brother and wife. So sad for her father. It broke my heart. I refuse to watch this type of family behavior. It is abnormal.

Team Teresa!! :)

Teresa, That was heart-wrenching! To see you and your brother tore apart like this especially when you two are so close in age. But when you watch it on tv...you see exactly why...HIS WIFE! Oh and then her sisters I'm sure just added more and obviously are still really big problems. God bless and good luck! Juicy Joe rocks and her brother Joe shouldn't have been so rude to her when she was coming up to congratulate. HE DRANK TOO MUCH. And should have been thinking about his father. Regardless, Teresa you rock and are gonna keep on rocking!
