Forget flipping tables -- Teresa Guidice has just flipped the entire show. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, a mother of four daughters and an audience favorite, is entering season 4 as a full-on villain. Watch the preview below!
So it looks like nothing has changed since that very heated season 3 reunion, which ended up with Caroline Manzo, Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile all pointing fingers at Teresa for creating rifts between them. (The fifth housewife, Jacqueline Laurita, was too upset to even come to the reunion; at the time, she claimed that she was quitting the show.)
Among Teresa's alleged crimes: insulting the Manzo family in her best-selling cookbook; telling lies about the Gorgas and Wakiles to turn the other Housewives against them; and ambushing her sister-in-law Melissa on-camera by revealing that she once worked at a strip club. (Gorga swears she was a fully-clothed bartender, but that's not what comes across in the preview.)
Guidice has pleaded "not guilty" to all of this, chalking up the other Housewives' reactions to jealousy. And she certainly has her defenders -- including Caroline's sister, former cast member Dina Manzo (who's in this season's preview -- yay!).
"There are evil people out there, and sometimes they come in the shape of your friends," Teresa snipes in the clip, while Jacqueline and Caroline are shown standing their ground against her.
But it's not all Teresa, all the time. The preview also shows Melissa Gorga working on her singing career, Caroline reluctantly wearing a royal-wedding-style hat as she attends her gay brother's lavish wedding, and the whole gang visiting Napa Valley on a getaway to California.
Caroline tells People that this season is "absolutely riveting, and gets very personal on a lot of different levels." Lucky for us, we don't have to wait very long: Season 4 premieres April 22 on Bravo. (And meanwhile, you can also catch Giudice on TV every Sunday on The Celebrity Apprentice, where she's hung on for five weeks and counting.)
