THE GARDEN STATE BLOOMS WITH FRESH FACES AS BRAVO MEDIA'S "THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY" SEASON SIX PREMIERES SUNDAY, JULY 13 AT 8PM ET/PT

Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga Welcome Back Dina Manzo, Newcomers Amber Marchese and Identical Twins Teresa Aprea and Nicole Mauriello

NEW YORK - May 14, 2014 -Bravo Media's watercooler hit, "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" returns with a super-sized premiere on Sunday, July 13 from 8-9:15p.m. ET/PT as Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are joined by new "Housewives" Amber Marchese, identical twin sisters Teresa Aprea and Nicole Mauriello, and the return of fan-favorite Dina Manzo. Also appearing throughout the season are sisters Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. A preview special of the upcoming season will air on Sunday, June 1 at 10p.m. ET/PT.

This season, Teresa and her husband, Joe, fight to keep their family intact as they embark on a very public legal battle for their freedom. Teresa's oldest friend, and veteran housewife, Dina, returns to help her soul-sister, but ends up revealing her own private pain. With a divorce on the horizon and her daughter, Lexi, heading off to college, Dina attempts to face her fear of dating in the 21st century. Things do not come up smelling like roses this season for Melissa, as she partners with her husband, Joe Gorga, hoping to begin a career in the sanitation business. Melissa's friend from the past, Amber, a no-nonsense Jersey native and breast cancer survivor, tries to rekindle their friendship, but stirs up trouble in the process. Nicole and Teresa are identical twins with an over- the top Neapolitan style. Teresa and her husband, Rino, own one of the most prestigious Italian restaurants in Little Italy. Nicole is a two-time divorcee, struggling to balance her career as a jet broker and her new relationship with a man her family doesn't approve of. The six wives begin to form a strong bond, but when shocking rumors of infidelity and backstabbing surface it threatens to tear their friendships to pieces.

Meet the new "Housewives":

Amber Marchese: Born and raised in the great state of New Jersey, Amber is married to James Marchese and is the mother to Corbin and Isabella, and stepmother to Michael and Sebastian. She puts her family above everything else and ingrains in them traditional values. Amber graduated with a BA, then acquired a Masters in Bio-behavioral studies/Exercise Physiology from Columbia University. Cancer free for five years, Amber was diagnosed with breast cancer at 31 and attributes being a better mother, wife and person to her battle. With a passion for health and wellness, she created her own fitness brand called "Vici fitness." Amber is a philanthropist, raising awareness for young women with cancer and assisting them with the emotional and financial impact of the disease.

Teresa Aprea: Teresa, a resident of Colts Neck, NJ, is one half of a dynamic set of twins. Her twin sister, Nicole, is her best friend and together they exude positive energy, love and are always ready for a party. Teresa lives with her husband, Rino, and their son, Giovanni, 18. Teresa first married her husband Rino back in 1991, later divorced and after 11 years apart did it all over again. In her free time she helps her husband run their award-winning restaurants Angelo's of Mulberry Street in Manhattan, and Areo in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Teresa loves to travel from one end of the globe to the next, and believes there is nothing better than traveling the world with family and meeting new and interesting people along the way.

Nicole Mauriello: Nicole is the ying to Teresa's yang. She is the mother of two teenage boys, Joey, 14, and Anthony, 16. Nicole, fashion-forward and ahead of every trend, prides herself on looking and feeling her best. One of her biggest joys is cooking dinner at home and spending time with her family. Nicole is extremely ambitious, as she ran a family restaurant at 20-years old, and studied at St. John's University, as well as at the American University of Rome. After her divorce, Nicole started a brand new career in private aviation and works for a premiere jet charter brokerage handling high-profile clients helping them globe-trot around the world to exotic and exciting places. While Nicole may have a heart of gold, do not mistake her kindness for weakness.
