Bravo’s planning wasn’t the best and Andy Cohen does not return to Watch What Happens Live until Monday, July 11th, meaning there is no after show for the RHONJ season 7 premiere! Therefore, Bravo decided to do something different and announced on Thursday that Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga will be getting up close and personal following the episode on Facebook Live!
The night will kickoff with BFF’s Brandy and Julie (from The People’s couch and VPR Aftershow) at 7:50PM. According to Bravo they will be “recapping all the great Jersey moments thus far and previewing what’s to come in a special Pre-Show.” The episode begins at 8PM and throughout commercial breaks the pair will be doing what they do best, providing hilarious commentary on the return of our favorite franchise!
Our source revealed that we will actually see a preview of the famous sisters-in-law around 8:40PM, and at 9 sharp they will go Live on the RHONJ Facebook page with Brandy and Julie, right from Melissa’s house! The ladies also announced the event on social media yesterday and the response from fans has been nothing but excitement; good move Bravo!
Our source dished that the kids won’t be on camera, it will just be Melissa and Teresa. They will be sharing their reactions to the episode and answering fans’ questions in real time, as they are asked on Facebook Live. Our RHONJ insider also disclosed that actually Brandy and Julie will be choosing the questions, not Teresa and Melissa. In fact, they “most likely will not even be looking at the Facebook screen!”
We found out that the other ladies were not asked to take part in this special RHONJ event and it is specifically for Teresa and Melissa only; therefore it’s safe to assume if WWHL was airing they would have been the guests!
If you were lucky enough to catch the RHONJ “first look” last night you got a real treat! We saw mostly Melissa and Jacqueline, and our source confirmed that the moment that brought Andy Cohen to tears is not until the end of the episode, so we won’t be getting much Teresa time this week! We’re told (and saw) there are also some “heartfelt moments between Jacqueline and Nicholas,” and we “should be prepared with tissues for all of episode one.”
The calmness won’t last for long however, we’ve been assured RHONJ season 7 is “full of fireworks, for sure the best season yet!”
We are only 1 day away from the epic RHONJ season 7 premiere and we’ve got lots more RHONJ scoop coming your way on Monday morning! Make sure to Live Tweet with us during tomorrow night’s premiere @AllAboutTRH!
