Bravo has announced the highly-anticipated seventh season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey will debut Sunday, July 10 at 8PM ET/PT. The show is returning following a two-year hiatus, as Season 6 aired all the way back in Summer 2014.

The veteran Housewives starring on the next season are Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita, while the newbies are Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker. Although not full-time cast members, sisters Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri will make appearances on the series.

The next edition of The Real Housewives of New Jersey will follow Teresa after her prison release hoping to start fresh with Melissa, her sister-in-law and Jacqueline looking to repair her friendship with Teresa as she continues to focus on her autistic son.

Dolores is a divorced mom of two trying to recover emotionally and financially from two failed relationships. Siggy, another friend of Jacqueline's, will fit right in with the Jersey group due to her dynamic personality and high energy. Siggy's children apparently accuse her of being overbearing at times.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey is produced by Sirens Media, LLC, A Leftfield Company, for Bravo. Andy Cohen, Rebecca Toth Diefenbach, Valerie Haselton, Lucilla D'Agostino, Caroline Self, Omid Kahangi and Tess Gamboa Meyers serve as executive producers.

Below is a full bio description for each of the two new Housewives supplied by Bravo:

- Dolores Catania: She redefines what it means to be a housewife. The Paterson-born Jersey native is the quintessential modern day Renaissance woman. This corrections officer-turned-surgical technician-turned Realtor and owner of multiple fitness centers is not only a mother of two, but is also an active executive member of several charities, a pastime fueled by her devout faith. Though divorced for 15 years, she and her ex-husband and business partner, Frank, maintain a close friendship. Their two kids, Gabrielle (20) and Frankie (17), keep Dolores on her toes by making sure there is never an empty house. Whether it's the multitude of kids or array of stray animals they bring home, the Catania household is never dull, and Dolores is mom to all. Known lovingly as the "real deal" by her friends, Dolores is not one to sugarcoat anything and always brings blunt honesty to the table, along with unwavering loyalty and a great sense of humor to match.

- Siggy Flicker: She is a relationship expert, professional matchmaker and TV personality whose professional opinion has been sought out by a variety of TV programs, syndicated radio shows and publications throughout the country. Most recently, Siggy added author to her impressive resume with her first book, Write Your Own Fairy Tale: The New Rules of Dating and Relationships, and Finding Love on Your Own Terms. What makes Siggy unique to the matchmaking game is that she truly practices what she preaches: Siggy wrote her own fairy tale. She met and married Mark Flicker, and after eight years of marriage and two children, Siggy and Mark chose to get divorced with no lawyers, no bitter arguments, and no traumatized children -- a divorce done right. Managing to remain her friend, Siggy’s first husband Mark stood up as best man to her new husband, Michael Campanella, when they were married. Now, clients and friends ask for Siggy's help not only in finding love, but also in ending a marriage without collateral damage to family and peace of mind.
