Following a season of lackluster ratings, ridiculously transparent producer and editing manipulation, and a déjà vu storyline, Wendy challenged Andy about making changes to the formerly successful show.
Wendy straight up called out this season as "not the best." Andy agreed and admitted, "We need to make some adjustments." When Wendy suggested "new Housewives" and "no more Manzos" or Wakiles, Andy said, "alright, alright" but he seemed off-put and annoyed. I think he's also realizing this show is doomed without MAJOR shakeups!

Wendy also put him in the hotseat over so-called decent (for famewhores!) families being destroyed by the show. Andy denied this, of course!
"You don't have to be pulled down," he said defensively, "you can also be frothy and bubbly." Andy laughed at the notion of more Penny Karagiorgis and more Kim D, however. I need more KIM G! HELLLOOOOO – How are you?!
Andy and Wendy also discussed his upcoming WWHL sit-down with Teresa and Joe Giudice to break down their massive legal problems! Describing the interview as "no holds barred," Andy insists "We really went there."
"They're at a very serious point right now and things are rough, but they seem to be fixing it with strength together," Andy revealed. "Teresa presents such a strong exterior, so it was interesting to me… just talking to her, like when does she allow herself to get scared. Does she allow herself? And do they think they're gonna beat this thing?"
Andy seemed unconvinced that Teresa and Joe would scrape by unscathed and admitted he asked them if they were in denial. Andy and Wendy both agreed a large part of their hard shell had to do with protecting their daughters.
Andy and Wendy went into detail about other Bravo shows – you can check out the interview below!
Teresa and Joe appear on WWHL next Sunday at 9pm EST following the RHONJ finale!
