the housewives of new jersey filming season 4 on the jersey shore, june 2011.
Everybody knows Bravo TV shot Season 4 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey early with no casting changes because they hoped to capitalize on Joe Giudice’s bankruptcy fraud trial, before the Giudice’s dropped the bankruptcy claim to avoid prison.
But the season 4 premiere is out of order, it’s time for the Real Housewives of New York to debut. Rumors of this change were making the rounds last month;
Last year, when production problems postponed the New York season, Bravo gave us the Real Housewives of Miami, to the disappointment of many viewers. I don’t know about anyone else, but the New Jersey housewives burned me out on their drama last season, not anxious to see them again so soon.
Bravo’s watercooler hit, The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns on Sunday, April 22 at 10pm ET/PT. Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, and Kathy Wakile return for a season full of sun, fun, and loads of drama. Everyone's favorite Garden State ladies prove there are no lazy days of summer. Melisa continues to focus on her music career and gets help from celebritychoreographer Chris Judd. Caroline keeps busy with her brother's gay wedding and helps her daughter Lauren with her weight loss issues. Kathy has her mouth and hands full as she expands her delicious dessert line and keeps her two high school teenagers in check. Struggling with certain friendships and loyalties, Jacqueline finds herself at a breaking point. This season is not all work as the ladies also have some time to enjoy themselves with trips to the Jersey Shore, lavish outdoor parties, and even a trip to Northern California.
It’s a win-win for Bravo, May is an advertising sweeps month.
Many spoilers for Season 4, stay tuned.
