The Real Housewives of New Jersey drama is about to explode on TV on July 10. But in the meantime, they're bringing it backstage, too! An insider close to production revealed exclusively to RadarOnline that tensions have gotten so high, crew members were forced to separate the ladies during a recent photo shoot to avoid any arguments.
Promotional footage for the upcoming season was shot shortly after the cast's explosive trip to Vermont, where Teresa Giudice, 43,and Melissa Gorga, 37, decided to sever ties with Jacqueline Laurita, 45.
As a result, RadarOnline.com has learned, three of the ladies got ready for their shoot in an upstairs room at the facility — equipped with bottles of top-shelf alcohol.
Meanwhile, the rest of the cast got ready on an entirely separate floor!
The cast's Season 7 looks were released on May 24, along with the explosive trailer.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker will be joining the RHONJ alums this season — and Kathy Wakile is also returning to the show.
