Bravo has released the first trailer for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and you may not believe this…

… but it looks like a lot of drama is on the way.

First, the series will bring back Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, Jennifer Aydin, Danielle Cabral and Rachel Fuda as lead cast members… with Jackie Goldschneider and Jennifer Fessler returning as Friends.

As is so often the case for this franchise, Giudice appears to be the main focus of upcoming episodes… although her feud with Melissa Gorga isn’t referenced at all.

Instead, it’s Teresa marriage to Luis Ruelas that has everyone talking — and speculating.

“Teresa is distraught because in the house, there’s not a lot of calm,” Danielle says in the preview, before Jennifer Aydin chimes in as follows:

“Every time I talk to her, her stomach is in knots.”

These remarks are cut with footage of Teresa walking with Ruelas, while Dolores says of her colleague:

“She’s not doing great.”

It doesn’t us long to learn why not, either, as an unknown voice claims “Louis pissed away her money.”

There’s been concern about Ruelas almost as soon as Giudice started dating him, with various critics trashing Luis as a fraud or a schemer.

We don’t learn any more details about what he may or may not have done with his wife’s money in this trailer, however.

At another point, the emotional and suspenseful promo goes over to argument between Louie and Teresa.

“I want it to be better,” he says, as she notes, “It’s not going to be better. I don’t want to talk about it.”

Once again, mystery clouds the scene. Producers sure know how to build intrigue, don’t they?

And even when Teresa’s relationship with Ruelas is not front and center, her relationship with others still dominates coverage.

For example, video teases shifting friendships between Margaret and pals Jenn Fessler and Jackie, both of whom have formed a surprising bond with Giudice.

“That’s who you want to associate yourself with?” she asks Jenn, later referring to Jackie as “Judas” while talking about their rift in a conversation with Joe.

“You want to tell Teresa everything you’ve been doing behind her back?”

“I’m being friends with whomever I want to be friends with, and I don’t care!” Jackie fires back.

Elsewhere, Jenn Fessler is also on the outs with Rachel, who, naturally, is ALSO feuding with Teresa.

“You’re a f—ing bully, Teresa,” she screams, as Teresa warns her, “Don’t poke the f—ing bear.”

YIKES, huh?

We can’t wait.
