Some good and some bad news for Real Housewives fans.
It seems that Bravo has decided to push season 12 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey until 2022.
The latest season of the Garden State Real Housewives franchise was set to premiere in November following the completion of the four-part Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 reunion.
Now, Bravo has decided to postpone airing RHONJ until 2022. Instead, the network has moved up the premiere for season 16 of the Real Housewives of Orange County.
RHOC will now premiere in November as the cast just finished filming their intros and taking their cast photos. Season 16 will see the return of fan-favorite Heather Dubrow.
She will be joined by returning Housewives Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, and Gina Kirschenheiter. RHOC fans will also be introduced to new Housewives Noella Bergener, Nicole James, and Dr. Jennifer Armstrong.
At the moment RHOC is still filming while RHONJ has been finished with filming for months. It’s odd that Bravo would postpone RHONJ since the season will most likely be shorter than RHOC and is more highly anticipated by fans.
I think Bravo is doing all they can to salvage the RHOC franchise following last year’s horrible season. Perhaps they think the show will benefit from debuting right after such a successful season of RHOBH. Only time will tell. Either way, I’m looking forward to seeing a revamped RHOC and I can’t wait to have my Jersey Girls back on Bravo! I think season 12 of RHONJ will be worth the wait!
