Review | The Real Housewives of New Jersey

Us Rating: ***

Think The Sopranos meets Snooki. The brassy clique in this franchise -- tough Caroline, her pretty sis Dina, mouthy Teresa, scrupulous Jacqueline and divisive Danielle -- engage in enough backstabbing, rumor-mongering and table-tossing to satisfy even the most jaded reality fan. Extras include an unedited cut of the lively finale! (Bravo, $30)
