Melissa Gorga Agrees Filming RHONJ Separately From Teresa Giudice ‘Isn’t Sustainable’


Melissa Gorga admits that filming RHONJ separately from enemy Teresa Giudice “isn’t sustainable” for future seasons of the franchise.

Andy Cohen recently made it known that the current state of the Real Housewives of New Jersey franchise “isn’t sustainable” with the series having “two camps” aka “Team Teresa” and “Team Melissa.”

On Sirius XM’s Andy Cohen Live, Andy Cohen doubled down on his statement that RHONJ isn’t sustainable with Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga not on speaking terms.

“Want to clear something up or want to add to a comment that I made that has made some news this week and I don’t know when I said it, but apparently, I said it to Brice from Entertainment Tonight, and I don’t know when. I haven’t seen him since BravoCon, I don’t think. Apparently, I told him and it got picked up all over the place that Jersey, the idea of having both Melissa and Teresa on the show, that it’s not sustainable because they’re not speaking and there are kind of two camps on the show. What I want to clarify is that I maintain that statement.”

“It isn’t a sustainable universe to have kind of two camps on the show and I think you see that with Potomac this season and why a lot of viewers, including me, were frustrated with it, but I will say this. It somehow worked this season. We got through the season and it worked and it’s interesting and as I think you see from the trailer, the season is not about Melissa versus Teresa and I think that’s great, yet they’re both still on the show and we want to see them on the show.”

Andy concluded by saying that while Teresa and Melissa’s lack of communication worked this season – it won’t work in the future: 

“They’re both, you know, they’re both stars and they’ve been on the show, you know, forever, so it worked this season, but I stand by what I’m saying that for the future, it’s not sustainable. I don’t want you to think that what I said was a condemnation on this season.”

As RHONJ fans know, the series is currently split into two camps. One camp consists of Teresa, Jennifer Aydin, and Jackie Goldschneider.

The other team is made up of Melissa, Rachel Fuda, Danielle Cabral, and Margaret Josephs.

Dolores Catania and Jennifer Fessler have remained neutral amid the divide in the cast.

After Andy’s comments made waves in the Bravoverse, Melissa Gorga chatted with The U.S. Sun about his declaration and it turns out the longtime RHONJ star couldn’t help but agree.

“I one thousand percent agree with him on that,” she revealed.

While she couldn’t go into detail, Melissa teased that a “huge twist” comes out during season 14.

“I’m excited. I think it’s a good refreshing season,” she shared. “I know everybody’s seeing the change in dynamics and friendships, and it’s actually going to be quite shocking.”

“I think people are so used to Jersey being about family,” the 45-year-old continued. “It’s a huge twist this year – plot twist!”

Melissa went on to name the RHONJ co-stars she trusts the most and who had her back while filming season 14.

“I have my girls on the show that I trust and I love. Love Dolores. I love Margaret and I love Rachel. I mean, I am getting to know Danielle a lot better this year,” Melissa remarked.

“She seems like a really down to earth, awesome person. So I am also forming new friendships, which I’m happy about.”
