Where Teresa Giudice goes, family drama seems to inevitably follow.
During her tenure on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, heading into its ninth season tonight, the Bravolebrity has spent a good chunk of that time embroiled in feuds that cut deeper than your usual Real Housewives spat because they tend to involve her blood relatives (or those who've married into the family). And this new season looks to be no different.
While sister-in-law Melissa Gorga has assured E! News that the fighting between the two this season won't be "knock-down, drag-out fights," the trailer for season nine does show the two going at it. "I really don't know if you're ever really gonna like, love me like your real sister," Melissa tells her at one point. So much for those past few seasons of relative peace.
It's with that in mind that we present to you the definitive guide to Tre's family drama. After all, there's a lot of history here. Someone's got to keep track of it all. You're welcome.
What does season nine hold in store for Teresa? With the promise of more fights between her and Melissa and a newcomer, Jackie Goldschneider, whom she accuses of coming between her and her family—not to mention the looming threat of Joe Giudice's deportation—the easy answer is: plenty. Stay tuned!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
(E! and Bravo are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
