Cast and synopsis[edit]

"Well, I'm asked back pretty much every year to be honest with you. It never felt right. This year, it kind of felt right between the changes going on in my life, and Teresa [Giudice] and I have organically gotten closer this past summer because of what she's going through... We became close friends again, hanging out, and it organically just happened. And they asked me last-minute. I came in last-minute."

Two of the five housewives featured on the fifth season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey returned for the sixth installment.[5][6] Caroline Manzo, one of the series' original housewives, announced her departure shortly after the fifth season concluded in October 2013, and began filming for her spin-off series Manzo'd with Children.[7] Jacqueline Laurita and Kathy Wakile, who respectively joined the series during the first and third seasons, confirmed their exits from the program in February and May 2014.[8][9] Bravo officially announced the cast for the sixth season, which consists of six housewives, on May 14, 2014.[10]

Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe handle the fallout of their highly publicized legal difficulties, while Melissa Gorga and her husband Joe embark on a business venture in the sanitation industry. Breast cancer survivor and new housewife Amber Marchese wishes to rekindle her former friendship with Gorga, while twins Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano join as the second and third new Housewives of the season; Teresa and her husband Rino own a successful restaurant in Little Italy, Manhattan, while the single Nicole balances her professional pursuits with a budding relationship.[6] Caroline Manzo's estranged sister Dina Manzo announced her return for the sixth season later in October 2013; she was originally included as an original Housewife during the first season, but she left during season 2.[11] Manzo is depicted strengthening her longtime companionship with Giudice, beginning to date while continuing with her divorce, and sending her daughter Lexi to college.[6]
