The series follows sisters (who happen to be married to brothers) Caroline and Dina Manzo, their sister-in-law, Jacqueline Laurita, long time family friend, Teresa Giudice and the always unpredictable Danielle Staub. Whether they are throwing a family function, out for a night on the town, or just gossiping with the girls – the ladies always find a way to be over the top and stay true to their own Jersey style.
"The Real Housewives of New Jersey's" freshman season ranks as the highest rated first season series of the Real Housewives franchise ever in all demographics, averaging 2.55 million total viewers and 1.91 million adults 18-49.
