Snooki, aka Nicole Polizzi, won’t be joining the Real Housewives of New Jersey anytime soon, thanks to the Big Daddy of Bravo, Andy Cohen.

Melissa Gorga, who is good friends with Snooki, recently revealed on her podcast ‘Melissa Gorga: On Display’ that Andy refuses to cast Snooki on the Jersey Housewives franchise.

This news came to light when Melissa’s podcast guest Danny Pellegrino asked if Snooki had ever been approached for RHONJ.

Melissa explained: “Andy Cohen gives her such a hard no… he’s just like ‘don’t even say it.’”

“Whenever I would go to him and be like ‘hello! She’s married now; she has three kids, she lives around the block. She’s great for this, I think,’ and he just looks at me like ‘no,’” she continued.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 12 premieres on Bravo on Tuesday, Feb. 1, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
