The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Danielle Staub and Caroline Manzo stepped out together the night before their show ends its tumultuous run on Tuesday (10 p.m. ET on Bravo) with what promises to be a jaw-dropping season finale.

“It’s been a wild ride,” Manzo told PEOPLE at the premiere of Jack Black‘s new caveman comedy, Year One, in New York City Monday night. “Something like this I could never have imagined in my lifetime doing and to share it with my children is unbelievable.”

Manzo attended the premiere with her sister Dina, their pal and costar Teresa Giudice and Staub, whose dirty laundry came out in the wash when the other Housewives uncovered a book about her past.

“I did the show for a whole new experience of trying to start my life anew and I really wanted everyone to come on the journey with me,” Staub said. “I hope everyone is buckled up. It’s not over yet.”

In a promo for the season finale, Giudice is shown turning over a table at a dinner attended by Staub.

Are the ladies getting along now? Manzo would only say, “We’re here.”

Despite the drama, Staub says she has no regrets about doing the show. “We’re just allowing everyone to see what goes on all over the place,” she said. “We’re just letting everyone else see our drama. That’s why are relating to us so well — because it’s what’s happening with them. People are acting like that everywhere. We’re making it okay.”

On a happier note, Manzo says that her sister-in-law and costar Jacqueline Laurita, who had a baby boy named Nicholas Francis last week, is thrilled to become a mom again.

“He was born Thursday and came home yesterday,” Manzo says. “Mom and dad are so happy.” — K.C. BakerMichael Caulfield/WireImage
