New Jersey 'Housewives' poised for ugly, epic reunion fights

August 23, 2010 |  5:20 pm

With the Emmy Awards on the horizon, we can all expect a wave of glamorous red carpet looks, celeb-packed after-parties and over-the-top acceptance speeches. That's why the Ministry has decided a little counterprogramming would be nice off the bat.

While Hollywood does Pilates and primps ahead of the big show, let us check in on the humble ladies of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey." After a season of big hair, threats of bodily injury and screaming matches in restaurants, Bravo has brought them all together in Atlantic City for a two-part reunion special.

The villainous Danielle Staub faces off against the foreclosed Teresa Giudice in, natch, a physical altercation. Even moderator Andy Cohen gets a shove. 

Though we don't smell an Emmy in their collective future, this is still must-see TV. Check out the reunion teaser clip above.
