The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 14 trailer is here, and by the looks of it, drama is growing in the Garden State this spring.

On Wednesday, Bravo dropped a sneak peek at the latest installment in the long-running franchise, which premieres Sunday, May 5.

Teresa GiudiceMelissa Gorga, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, Jennifer Aydin, Danielle Cabral and Rachel Fuda will all be back as Housewives, with Jackie Goldschneider and Jennifer Fessler returning as Friends.

Though its the same cast the series had for season 15, the dynamics between the women have changed since last year's epic fallout between Teresa and Melissa. In fact, the conflict between the sisters-in-law appears on the back-burner now, with the two not even interacting at all in the trailer.

But Teresa, 51, still appears to be a hot topic of conversation. "Teresa is distraught because in the house, there's not a lot of calm," Danielle says, before Jennifer Aydin adds, "Every time I talk to her, her stomach is in knots."

The comments are cut with clips of Teresa walking with husband Luis "Louie" Ruelas. "She's not doing great," says Dolores.

Then, a voice — unidentified in the trailer, but appearing to come from a phone held by Margaret's husband Joe Beningo — drops a bomb of an allegation. "Louie pissed her money away," says the Housewife.

Right thereafter, the preview cuts to and argument between Louie and Teresa. "I want it to be better," he says, as she notes, "It's not going to be better. I don't want to talk about it."

While the context of those scenes are left up for debate, others are more straightforward. The clip teases shifting friendships between Margaret and pals Jenn Fessler and Jackie, both who have formed a newfound bond with Teresa.

"That's who you want to associate yourself with?" she asks Jenn, later referring to Jackie as "Judas" while discussing their rift in a conversation with Joe. "You want to tell Teresa everything you've been doing behind her back?"

"I'm being friends with whomever I want to be friends with, and I don't care!" Jackie says.

Jenn Fessler is also on the outs with Rachel, who herself is feuding with Teresa. "You're a f---ing bully, Teresa," she says, before Teresa warns her, "Don't poke the f---ing bear."

Even John Fuda, Rachel's husband, gets in on the argument. "You're the the poster child for mortgage fraud" John tells Teresa. "When I need my money laundered, I'll call ya!"

Elsewhere, Jennifer Aydin and Danielle have seen their friendship fall apart.

"That is nobody I want to be friends with. I'm not looking her way again," Jennifer says behind Danielle's back, while Danielle directs her ire to Jennifer's face. "You're dirty. Everybody was right about you. You're a piece of s---," she says.

Superfans of RHONJ know that things get so bad between Jennifer and Danielle this season that both were suspended from filming for several days back in September after the two go into an "altercation." The exchange started verbally and allegedly became physical when Jennifer pushed Danielle, a source previously told PEOPLE. Danielle, in turn, allegedly threw her drink at Jennifer. The plastic cup hit Jennifer's face, and the back of her earring "cut into the back of her neck," the insider said.

Footage of the fight didn't make it into the trailer, but the conflict between the two and the remainder of the cast was so tense that the RHONJ's cast panel at BravoCon 2023 had to be split into two for the second year in a row. Teresa, Dolores, Jennifer and Jackie appeared on one panel, while Melissa, Margaret, Rachel, Danielle and Jenn appeared on the other (all the Housewives alongside their respective men).

Viewers will have to wait to see if there's any resolution come reunion time. Until then, here's Bravo's official description of what's to come this season:
