Rachel Fuda Thinks RHONJ Cast Changes Are ‘Needed’ After Season 14

Rachel Fuda has thoughts about the cast for future seasons of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. 

The RHONJ newbie isn’t particularly close with Teresa Giudice, the series’ longest-running cast member, this season. Before the Season 14 premiere, she cropped the vet out of a promotional cast picture, showing exactly where the two currently stand. As the first few episodes have aired, viewers can see Rachel and her husband John Fuda’s drama with Tre, calling her a “has been” despite being on the show that she helped build. 

Their beef stemmed from Tre repeating an allegation that John used to be the biggest drug dealer in Bergen County. They will continue to go head-to-head this season, but Rachel hopes it’s the last year she has to fight with Teresa. In an interview with Distractify, she called Teresa New Jersey’s “bad apple.”

It’s no secret that Season 14 of Jersey was difficult to film, with Teresa and Melissa Gorga refusing to speak to each other. However, for some reason, Rachel thinks it’s just Teresa who’s causing the issues. She said she’s a “bad apple,” impacting the rest of the group’s relationship. 

When asked about future cast changes, she said there undoubtedly has to be a shift. 

“I don’t even think it’s a question of if there should be,” she said. She even said Bravo should consider bringing “new apples” into the mix. “I think it’s needed.” 

Well, sis, I think many can agree there should be a change. Unfortunately, the fan base seems to be split entirely down the middle when it comes to who should stay, and who should go. With Bravo putting RHONJ on pause while Tre was away serving time, though? They may just want to keep their marquee player around no matter what.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey continues on Sundays at 8/7c.
