The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 3 premiere brought the drama from the very start, and viewers ate it up. Last Monday night’s premiere was watched by over 2.87 million people – the highest rated season premiere in the network’s history!

Last Monday’s episode was also Bravo’s best Monday night ever. Newcomers Melissa Gorga and Kathy Walkie attended the show’s premiere party last week, along with Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita. Looks like Simon van Kempen also showed up. Melissa said that watching the premiere episode was emotional and she didn’t know how anyone could watch it and not cry. Ho, it wasn’t that serious!

Ticket prices for the premiere party were going for $75-200. Anyone know why?!?
