After 14 years, Teresa Giudice is still carrying the New Jersey franchise of the hit Real Housewives on her back. Whether you rally in her camp of supporters or not, her family drama has long been front and center on Bravo. That continues to be the case for The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13. 

The brand new season once again pits Teresa against her brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa, except this time, the feud reaches a fever pitch that sees family members crossing cringeworthy boundaries. 

Even with the Guidice/Gorga rivalry serving as the main event, there are other things going on in Jersey that are sure to make viewers tune in. There are even two new housewives in the mix that look to make a name for themselves in the new season. 

Check out what else you can expect from The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 premise

As we previously mentioned, the feud between Teresa, Joe and Melissa serves as the anchor for this season's drama. While Teresa tries to plan a dream wedding to her then-fiancé Luis Ruelas, Melissa and Joe find themselves bothered by what they perceive to be snubs (one such snub is the fact Melissa wasn't invited to be a part of the wedding party). The minor issues are only exacerbated by the fact Joe and Luis have some heated confrontations, and an infidelity rumor about Melissa makes its rounds among the group of women. 

In terms of Dolores, she is no longer grieving for her breakup with David. In fact, she has a brand-new boyfriend, and things appear to be getting serious. Unfortunately for her this go around, her new beau isn't too keen on having her ex-husband and friend Frank so heavily involved in her day-to-day life. 

On a Margaret and Jennifer front, the two have their metaphorical knives out and they are sharper than ever as they continue to go after each other. The pair are like oil and water, and it seems they'll keep taking swipes at each other's marriages and personal lives, staying on trend for them since Jennifer's arrival on the show. 

Speaking of arrivals, Danielle Cabral and Rachel Fuda are the newest housewives to arrive on the scene, and their personalities are anything but boring. They'll likely ruffle their fair share of feathers in season 13.
