‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ Episode Guide (July 10): Theresa Released From Prison

“Jingle Bells And Prison Cells” Season 7 Premiere (07/10/16) – Melissa spreads her entrepreneurial wings as she breaks ground on her new boutique despite her husband Joe’s desire to keep her at home.

Jacqueline catches with her close friends Dolores and Siggy, and later hosts a holiday cocktail party where she shares a secret message that she is surprised to receive. Finally, after nearly a year in prison, Teresa returns home to her family just in time for Christmas.

There won’t be any lazy days of summer when Bravo Media’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” returns for its much anticipated seventh season. Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are joined by new Housewives, Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker, along with the return of a true Jersey veteran, Jacqueline Laurita. Also appearing this season are sisters Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri.

This season, Teresa looks to repair fractured relationships with her family and friends. Although her release from prison brings the Giudice family back together, the reunion is short-lived as they only have a few months before Joe begins his sentence. After growing closer to the Gorga family while Teresa was away, Melissa now fears it may all crumble and hopes she can start fresh with her sister-in-law, permanently putting the past behind them.

Meanwhile, Jacqueline, whose main focus continues to be helping her autistic son, longs for the “Lucy and Ethel” friendship she had with Teresa and is willing to bury their history if it means a more lighthearted future. Teresa and Jacqueline’s longtime friend, Dolores, is a divorced mom of two, focusing on a road toward independence as she emotionally and financially recovers from two failed relationships.

Siggy, another friend of Jacqueline’s, fits right in with the Jersey group with her dynamic personality and high energy, as she navigates her relationships with her children who find her overbearing at times. But just as these five ‘wives begin to form strong bonds, relationships are on the verge of breaking – and when old friends meet new friends, it may mean no friends for some.
