Melissa Gorga teases “toxic” drama with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice in her tagline for “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” Season 13.
“You’ll never see how toxic someone is until you breathe fresher air,” the Envy by Melissa Gorga boutique owner, 43, says at the start of the new intro, released by Bravo on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Giudice, 50, uses her own tagline to share her feelings about her ongoing family strife, which also involves her younger brother, Joe Gorga.
“Blood may be thicker than water,” the OG “RHONJ” star says at the end of the clip. “But it’s hard to clean when it spills.”
The ladies are likely referring to the discord that took place in the summer of 2022 as production on “New Jersey” wrapped.
A falling out took place in August when Joe, 47, and Melissa did not attend Giudice’s wedding to Luis “Louis” Ruelas after an explosive fight broke out while filming the Season 13 finale of the Bravo reality series.
Tensions flared when Giudice brought up rumors that Melissa had an affair with longtime friend Nick Barrotta, which a source previously told Page Six the Gorgas “laughed off.”
“Sometimes when things are too toxic and you try over and over and over again and it just keeps coming back around to the same thing, even if it’s family, you have to let it go,” Melissa said on her “On Display” podcast shortly after.
There is more to Season 13 than the Gorga-Giudice feud, however, if the other cast members’ taglines are any indication.
“This Jersey girl has the luck of the Irish, and nobody’s screwing with my pot of gold,” Dolores Catania says in a nod to her new romance with Irish boyfriend Paul “Paulie” Connell.
Catania’s onscreen adversary Jennifer Aydin suggests that she will be engaging in plenty of conflict this season, too.
“Payback’s a bitch,” she says. “So start barking.”
Elsewhere, Margaret Josephs makes it clear that it’s not good to be on her bad side.
“I’m a loyal friend,” she states. “And a lethal enemy.”
Additionally, newbies Danielle Cabral and Rachel Fuda seem eager to shake things up in the Garden State.
“I may be over the top, but I’d rather be bougie than basic,” confesses Cabral, while Fuda says with sass, “I’m too busy running a business to care about yours.”
“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” Season 13 premieres Tuesday, Feb. 7, at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
