'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Season 4: Teresa Giudice at the center of the storm

real-housewives-of-new-jersey-teresa-giudice-bravo.jpgA storm is brewing in the Garden State when "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" returns for its fourth season Sunday (April 22) night, and thanks to Twitter and tabloid headlines, we all know what the messy aftermath looks like.

Filming had already begun for the current season during the Season 3 reunion show, at which Jacqueline Laurita was absent for reasons relating to fellow housewife and former friend Teresa Giudice. And Sunday's episode starts building the tension for what is sure to be a huge blowout among the ladies.

The show begins with a clip from the now-infamous reunion show before rewinding to happier -- though still tense -- times four months earlier with Teresa and fam gathering for dinner with Jacqueline, Caroline Manzo and crew before heading off to the Jersey Shore with Melissa and Joe Gorga and Kathy and Rich Wakile.

And interestingly the "real" world starts colliding with the "Real Housewives" world as an In Touch story Teresa did about her family plays a key role in the episode.

Tune into Bravo at 10 p.m. for the full episode to watch the drama unfurl and relationships start to unravel.

Are you excited for the new season?
