Season 8

Returning for another roller-coaster ride are Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker, who are joined by new housewife Margaret Josephs.

When thrown into the Jersey scene, the self-proclaimed "powerhouse in pigtails" holds her own, even if that means clashing with some of the other women.

Also, the highly anticipated return of Danielle Staub (Seasons 1 and 2) shakes everything up this season when she comes back ready to reopen old wounds and reveal new secrets.

This season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the women are faced with new trials and tribulations that test their close-knit friendships.

In the midst of their newfound familial peace, Melissa is thrown a curve ball when Joe and Teresa decide to open a family restaurant without consulting her.

Dolores has finally found the man of her dreams, but when her ex-husband asks to move back home, it jeopardises her own romantic future.

After finding overwhelming success with her book and speaking engagements, Siggy decides it's time to take her career to the next level. Ironically, this causes relationship issues of her own as her husband questions her commitment to work-life balance.

Meanwhile, as Teresa comes to terms with life as a single parent with Joe in prison, her world becomes further fractured by the heartbreaking and sudden death of her mother.

The dynamic of the group gets thrown off-course when Danielle Staub re-enters the picture after years of total absence, threatening a 20-year friendship between Teresa and Dolores.

Tensions rise even more between Siggy and new housewife Margaret on a ladies trip to Boca, forcing all of the ladies to quickly choose sides.

After years of rebuilding old relationships and establishing new ones, will these women rise above the obstacles thrown at their friendships, or will they realise that some bonds are, in fact, meant to be broken?

Meet the new housewife:

Margaret Josephs

Margaret Josephs is instantly recognisable with her infectious smile, big lashes and trademark blonde hair worn in pigtails, earning her the nickname "Powerhouse in Pigtails."

Born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, Margaret moved to Tenafly, New Jersey at 24 years old to raise her three stepchildren with her first husband, Jan Josephs. She soon gave birth to their own son and they lived happily ever after... until they happily divorced.

Margaret then met the love of her life - "Super Joe," the ultimate motorcycle riding plumber and contractor - and they eloped in 2013.

After graduating from FIT with a degree in Marketing and Fashion Design, Margaret worked at the heart of the New York Garment Center as a dress designer.

In 1999, Margaret launched her line of home accessories, Macbeth Collection by Margaret Josephs, and the company has since grown into a global lifestyle brand.

Margaret is a lifestyle expert and can be seen regularly on TV sharing her tips and picks for organising, accessorising and glamorising. Margaret is sure she is ready for whatever this New Jersey crew throws her way.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey is produced by Sirens Media, LLC, for Bravo. Rebecca Toth Diefenbach, Valerie Haselton, Lucilla D'Agostino, Luke Neslage and Amy Kohn are executive producers. Andy Cohen also serves as an Executive Producer.
