"I am very excited to be back," Teresa, who got released from prison in December after 11 months behind bars, told Bravo's The Daily Dish. "For me, this season is all about letting go of the past and embracing the future. People are calling me Teresa 2.0."
According to Bravo, Season 7 will feature Teresa as she repairs fractured relationships with her family and friends and prepares for her husband Joe Giudice to leave the family and surrender to his 41-month prison sentence.
Teresa, 43, just spent the Christmas holiday with her sister-in-law Melissa, and the pair seem ready to bury the issues of their past.
"We're back! This season for me is all about family, fun, friendships and fashion," Melissa, 36, said in a statement. "I can't wait for you to see what we've been up to and how much our [three] kids have grown."
Meanwhile, Jacqueline, 45, is focused on Nicholas but would love to become best friends with Teresa again. The two women were original cast members together.
"I'm baaaaack! I can't get enough of my Bravo family!" Jacqueline, who made many guest appearances in Season 6, added. "Sometimes a little break is all I need to jump back in and bring my best! Looking forward to new beginnings. XOXO."
The rest of the cast and the premiere date will be disclosed at a later time. It's unclear whether Season 6 stars Dina Manzo and twins Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano plan to come back to The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
The series' sixth edition wrapped in November 2014.
