Teresa: This Past Year Has Been a Roller Coaster
Plus: Dina and Melissa also spill secrets of the new RHONJ.
We're just a few days away from the season premiere of the Real Housewives of New Jersey and the details on the upcoming season are starting to spill out.
This highly-anticipated season will feature three completely new faces as well as the return of Dina Manzo. Dina, her BFF Teresa Giudice and Teresa's sister-in-law Melissa Gorga stopped by The View and opened up about their ongoing family dramas.
"This past year has been like a roller coaster," shared Teresa who, along with husband Joe, pleaded guilty to fraud charges in March, "right now what i'm focusing on is my family."
The Guidices sentencing has been pushed back to September, which gives the couple more time to be with family while healing from the unexpected death of Joe's dad Frank last month.
"I just lost my father-in-law," said Teresa, "my husband, not only did he lose his dad but he lost his best friend...that's what I'm focusing on my family."
As for her rocky relationship with Melissa, Teresa says "I love her, I love my brother - that's all that matters.
In the years since her RHONJ departure, the relationship between Dina and sister Caroline Manzo, who is no longer on the show, has been strained. "I'm kind of over talking about it publicly, said Dina. "What goes on privately is so different. If I wanted to talk about family issues on the show I would've joined last year."
And what about those new cast members? When asked if she thinks feisty twins Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea will bring the drama, Teresa G replied, "With me on the show? Are you kidding me?"
The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns Sunday at 8/7c.
