Here's some spoilers to get fans prepped for the bumpy ride which will will supposedly include "downs" like dealing with cheating rumors & home foreclosures and "ups" like rekindled relationships between the housewives.

While rumors have been circulating that housewife Caroline Manzo's husband Albert has cheated on her, the outspoken matriarch will allegedly confront the rumors on the upcoming season of RHONJ.
Although seemingly having the most stable marriage in past seasons (and therefore sticking her nose into the other women's marriages), All Things Real Housewives, has recently reported that Albert Manzo's extramarital affairs will be part of Caroline's storyline in Season 5, as the tables unexpectedly turn.
"Women are coming forward revealing Albert cheats on Caroline," the insider reveals. "Caroline knows of Albert's infidelities, but she turns the other cheek and ignores what's really going on."
In an interview with NY Daily News, Caroline spoke about the infidelity rumors surrounding her man, who fathered her three children, "I know the man I married. He's a good man. But he's a man. I don't believe there were any long-term affairs. If that were the case, this story would end differently," Caroline said.
It was previously reported that back in February, notes Wetpaint, that "troublemaker" Teresa Giudice (who was also rumored to be a victim of infidelity while married to her husband "Juicy Joe") enlisted the help of her friends Kim D. and Penny Drossos to find out who Al was cheating on Caroline with. When the ladies encountered Caroline, it's said that Caroline refused to speak on the subject. Caroline threw the blame on the ladies who were trying to look out for her, but sources now say that these undercover activities are going to be brought to the light during Season 5.
"There are so many people talking about Albert's affairs it was definitely a hot topic while filming," the source explains. "It has gotten to the point where it was unavoidable and had to be addressed on-camera."
Caroline Manzo recently released a self-help book, Let me Tell You Something where she gives tips on how to keep your families "thick as thick as thieves!" However, with these recent cheating reports, it looks like Caroline will be forced to rip a page out of her own book.
As for the other relationships between the Jersey gals, mama Caroline has spoken out several times to the media stating that she's "working on her relationship with Teresa", reports Reality Tea. Maybe Albert's alleged affair somehow brings the girls closer together this season?
Teresa is also working on bettering her estranged relationship with sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. Gorga recently told the Examiner while at an appearance in NJ, "We are trying to work things out for the kids."
Husband Joe Gorga added, "Everyone's getting along," which seems to be a rarity amongst the Jersey-natives.
Unfortunately housewife Jaqueline is not "getting along" as well with her recent finance issues. Last month it was reported that Laurita was facing foreclosure on her Franklin Lakes mansion. The Lauritas are in default on their $1.8M home and also owe over $300,000 in back taxes to the state of New Jersey.
To make the financial situation even worse, TMZ recently uncovered that Jacqueline and Chris are being sued by Hudson City Savings Bank. According to the suit, Jacqueline took out a $1.6M mortgage in 2007 on the home. One of the conditions of the loan stated that they could not miss any payments or the bank has the right to demand the entire balance in full.
In February the couple failed to make their $10,175 monthly mortgage payment - and the bank wants its money. All of it. Since the bank claims the Lauritas owe them they asked a NJ judge for permission to foreclose on the home. The home is currently listed as "In Default" on Zillow, states Reality Tea.
While previously rumored to have more of a "zen" feel in Season 5, with all of the drama occurring in the Jersey housewives' lives, it seems like this season of RHONJ will be packed with just as much drama as the past four seasons.
Melissa foreshadows, "It's everything the fans want. It's a lot of crazy yelling, a lot of love ... there's a lot of comedy."
With the filming for season 5 currently wrapping up, we can finally start counting down the days until we are reunited with our favorite Jersey housewives.
