Andy Cohen gives context on Bravo’s decision not to film a reunion for season 14 of RHONJ.

On Monday, June 3, Andy Cohen called into SiriusXM’s Reality Checked with Kiki Monique to give context on the recent announcement that the RHONJ cast will not be having a traditional reunion for season 14

Andy said: 

“I do want to give some context to the announcement over the weekend that there was gonna be no Jersey reunion because I feel like there are a lot of theories about what this could mean. I think that the main thing is this will all make sense once you see the finale. It is one of those classic Jersey finales that people will be talking about for a long time to come. And when all of us producers saw the last cut of the finale, we all came to the decision separately, and then we talked. We all had the same thought, which is the finale is kind of the finale and the reunion all in one.”

Melissa Gorga, Andy Cohen, Teresa Giudice, and Jennifer Aydin discuss season 13 drama at reunion.

He continued: “It’s in the great tradition of absolute shocking, dramatic Jersey finales and they have this final epic group encounter, which is like, it feels like the Last Supper and is just so Jersey.  And it’s shocking, and it’s dramatic, and it’s amazing TV. I’m telling you, when you see it, I think that you’ll feel complete. I really do. And there will be something that Bravo is cooking up in place of a reunion, and so that is to be announced.”

“This season, it is really catching fire. There’s stuff happening with everyone. I feel like this announcement about the reunion came without much context, and so I just wanted to fill in some of the blanks for you. The reason that you guys heard about it. If you think about the timing of when we tape reunions, typically, we tape them about six weeks before the end of the season, which means that we would’ve been taping this one in a couple [of] weeks, which means you have to let the cast know, okay, what date are we taping it and what kind of clothes and whatever. We were letting the cast know. And, of course, it leaked as things do,” Andy Cohen added.

As AllAboutTRH EXCLUSIVELY reported on Saturday, June 1, Bravo has canceled the RHONJ season 14 reunion.

The cancelation comes as the hit Bravo show has drastically declined in ratings in the last four episodes. Our inside sources reveal why this decision was made, saying, “The reunion is all about resolution, and there is so much divide amongst the cast that Bravo feels like they would be wasting everyone’s time filming a reunion that would mirror season 13’s reunion.”

So what does that mean for the future of the Real Housewives of New Jersey?

“Sadly, the cast have been so divided with many refusing to film with each other that Bravo thinks it best to take a long pause on Jersey,” our inside source admits.

The reunion was set for June 27th, but production notified each RHONJ cast member that it had been canceled.

Our sources reveal that all of the ladies are in complete shock and are worried that they will be fired.

The only other Real Housewives franchise that did not have a reunion following a season was the Real Housewives of New York season 13 cast. This resulted in Bravo completely revamping the New York Housewives franchise with a new cast.

Real Housewives of New Jersey airs on Sundays at 8 pm on Bravo.
