REPORT: RHONJ Cast is ‘Blaming’ Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga for Low Ratings and Potential Reboot

63 comments

A new report claims that the RHONJ cast is “blaming” Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga for low ratings and the show’s “uncertain future” after the season 14 reunion was canceled.

The RHONJ franchise is used to bringing in big numbers for Bravo, but the tides have changed this season due to the drama on social media and among the cast. Days after news broke that Bravo canceled the RHONJ season 14 reunion, the series experienced its lowest-rated episode in the franchise’s history, bringing in less than 700,000 viewers.

Now, sources reveal that the RHONJ cast believes Melissa Gorga‘s estrangement from Teresa Giudice, which has led to a divide among the cast, is to blame for the series’ less-than-stellar season.

“It seems like the cast is in part blaming Teresa and Melissa’s feud for the poor ratings and the uncertain future,” the insider revealed to The U.S. Sun. “Fans followed their relationship since Melissa became a housewife in season three and they want to continue to see the ups and downs.”

As RHONJ fans know, Melissa and Teresa did NOT interact at all while filming season 14, forcing the rest of the cast to take sides. Fans aren’t enjoying the divided cast and some call for Bravo to overhaul the franchise for season 15.

Viewers have made it known on social media that they are not happy with the “change in dynamics and friendships” on the New Jersey Housewives franchise.

“And as of last week, the cast each got a phone call from the network and said to no longer hold the date because they’re not going to have a traditional reunion,” the insider shared. “There’s no resolution to how this season ends.”

The source adds that once the “dramatic” season 14 finale airs, “it will become clear why there’s no reunion.”

“All of the cast is in the dark about the reunion and even what’s going to happen after this season is over. It’s still too early to know about season 15, but everyone has no clue,” the source continued. “[They have] no clue if there is another season or even who is safe and who is on the chopping block.”

“It seems like the cast is more anxious about what’s going to happen next and just waiting for another update,” the insider said. “Everyone is walking on eggshells. They’re scared of speaking out and possibly having it backfire and putting their job on the line.”

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