The best thing about "The Real Housewives" franchise is that at the end of the day, they're regular people. Once you cut through the manufactured drama, the extensions and the gallons of bronzer, these women are normal -- they have families, pay some bills, yell at their kids, and attempt to live their lives as normally as possible in spite of the cameras. I'm willing to bet these ladies are a blast when the camera stops rolling and Andy Cohen stops asking awkward questions. In honor of the return of my favorite women from the Garden State, click through to see the reasons why these women would make great friends, and tune in to Bravo this Sunday at 8/7 C to check out the fifth season premiere.
This post is sponsored by Bravo's "The Real Housewives Of New Jersey," but the author's favorite Housewife is DEFINITELY Teresa.
