Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice's conflict reaches a new level on the upcoming episode of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" season 8.

Titled "The Public Shaming of Melissa," next week's episode will see tension mount between Giudice and Gorga as the latter's restaurant opening nears. The sisters-in-law are then forced to work together professionally for the first time.

Elsewhere, Danielle Staub dishes a secret to Giudice that could ruin the latter's friendship with Dolores Catania. Siggy Flicker organizes a cocktail party, while Gorga is still haunted by Flicker's anger over the cake that was destroyed during their trip in Boca.

Giudice recently shared a series of social media posts remembering her mother on what would have been her 67th birthday. On Friday, the reality star shared a picture of the late Antonia Gorga, who passed away in March.

"Happy Birthday Mommy," Giudice captioned an image featuring her brother Joe Gorga and Antonia. "I love you so much and miss you so much. I think about you all the time every second every minute of the day."

She added, "Still cannot believe it, my heart breaks everyday that you are not here with us. Love you more than I can express."

Aside from her reality show, Giudice has been busy with the promotion of her new book, "Standing Strong." Despite her projects, reports note the Bravo celebrity is going through financial issues. A source revealed to Radar Online that Giudice is afraid she would not be able to pay her daughters' college tuitions due to her expensive lifestyle.

"Teresa is flat broke and she spends all of her money on her cars," said the insider, adding the ex-felon has no idea how she is going to send her girls to college.

"She is pretty desperate," the source continued.

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" season 8 airs every Wednesday night at 9 p.m. EDT on Bravo.
