The drama in the Garden State has reached a fever pitch!
According to the BravoCon app, the Real Housewives of New Jersey panel is being split into two due to the ongoing drama between the cast.
Jackie and Evan Goldschneider, Melissa and Joe Gorga, as well as Margaret Josephs and Joe Benigno, will now appear on Friday, October 14, from 1:30-2:15, while Jennifer and Bill Aydin, Dolores and Frank Catania, and Teresa Giudice and Luis Ruelas will appear on Saturday, October 15 from 3:15-4:15.
This comes after the cast endured an explosive showdown while filming the finale event for season 13 in the spring.
As we previously reported, things got ugly at the season 13 finale party when Melissa and Joe got into a heated altercation with Teresa and Louie over rumors that Melissa cheated on Joe. Things got so ugly that Joe charged Louie and had to be restrained. Days later, Melissa and Joe announced they would not be attending Teresa and Louie’s August 6 wedding.
Since the fallout between the Gorgas and the Giudices, Teresa has made it clear she has no intention of mending fences with her brother and sister-in-law.
According to Teresa, Joe and Melissa have taken advantage of her for years. The RHONJ OG also admits that she has no regrets about cutting Joe and Melissa out of her life.
“I’m totally fine [with it]. Totally fine. I got taken advantage of for so long, for over ten years. I got taken advantage of, and finally, [husband Luis Ruelas] came into my life, and it was like, ‘That’s not happening anymore.’ I think [everyone is] going to see the truth of everything that’s been really happening,” Teresa recently told Us Weekly.
As for what caused her fallout with Joe and Melissa, Teresa teased that it will all play out in the upcoming season of RHONJ.
“It’s gonna blow your minds away,” Teresa confessed. “It’s very sad. People thought a certain way about me, and then they’re gonna be like, ‘Wow, we were so wrong.’ I think when you watch this season [you’ll see that], I kept my mouth shut a lot over ten years.”
“Don’t forget, my parents were around back then. So, I tried to keep the peace for a long time, and you know, somebody could only take so much for so long. It’s not happening anymore. I think everybody’s gonna be blown away,” she continued.
RHONJ will return for season 13 in early 2023.
