The Big Daddy of Bravo is addressing all the gossip and rumors surrounding season 14 of RHONJ! Find out EVERYTHING Andy Cohen has to say!
Andy Cohen is tackling the gossip about season 14 of RHONJ head-on. The Watch What Happens Live host sat down with E! News to discuss what’s going on with the Garden State Housewives franchise moving forward.
When it comes to reports that RHONJ is being put on “pause” for the summer, Andy denies the claim. According to Andy, Bravo always takes a break in between filmed for the RHONJ franchise.
Of the rumored Real Housewives of New Jersey “pause,” Andy said:
“I mean, we always take a break between seasons, so I don’t know why that is out there.”
However, longtime Bravo fans know that is not the case. For the last several years, RHONJ has infamously begun filming their new season just weeks, maybe a month or two at the most, after filming the previous season’s reunion.
Last year, the season 12 reunion was filmed in February, and the cast began filming season 13 in June. However, in seasons prior, the cast filmed the reunion in April and started filming in June. RHONJ is known for filming their seasons back to back, much like the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Sources close to production tell AllAboutTRH that filming for season 14 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey isn’t expected to start until October at the earliest. This means the RHONJ cast would have nearly six months off in-between filming. Depending on how things go filming for season 14 might not start until November/December or early 2024.
“We will see. I don’t know. We know how they feel,” Andy admitted, acknowledging that both Melissa and Teresa have said they are not leaving RHONJ.
When it comes to casting changes and contracts for season 14, Andy says that no decisions have been made regarding the next season of RHONJ.
He explains that the network is waiting until after the RHONJ season 13 reunion airs on Bravo to decide who is returning to the show.
Andy also hits that viewers’ reaction to the reunion and the Housewives will play a role in who stays and who goes for season 14 of RHONJ.
The 54-year-old said:
“We haven’t even sent out contracts yet. We’re waiting for the season to end. It hasn’t ended yet. We like to do a little deep dive on the season, see where we land, see where the viewers are, and then we can determine where we’re at.”
RHONJ currently stars Teresa Giudice, Jennifer Aydin, Dolores Catania, Danielle Cabral, Rachel Fuda, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga. Jennifer Fessler and Jackie Goldschneider also appear as friends of the Housewives.
As AllAboutTRH has previously reported, the entire RHONJ cast wishes to return for season 14.
Part one of the RHONJ season 13 reunion airs Tuesday, May 30 at 8 pm on Bravo.
