Andy Cohen Comments on Potential RHONJ Reboot

It’s a strange time to be a Bravo fan. Reality stars are refusing to film with their castmates. Some of the longtime staples, like Real Housewives of New Jersey, are flopping right in front of our eyes. It’s a lot, and with all of the nastiness and the rumors, Andy Cohen was forced to comment. We needed him to ease all of our concerns.

The future according to Andy

Ahead of Season 14, we knew that the rift between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga caused the two to film separately. Then, after only a few episodes of the season aired, Bravo confirmed that the season wouldn’t have the traditional reunion episodes we’ve come to expect. That news has made the future of the show seem uncertain.

Elsewhere in the Bravo universe, Real Housewives of Atlanta stumbled through a disastrous Season 15. As a result, Bravo did a cast overhaul to breathe new life into the once-iconic franchise. With that in mind, Andy confirmed that RHONJ could have the same fate. They just haven’t decided for sure. He dropped in on Sirius XM’s Reality Checked with Kiki Monique and dished on the future of the show.

“There was a lot of play with [the idea of a reboot], and I think the answer is, I was talking to a cast member about this today. We are gonna cross next season as that comes,” Andy admitted.

Finishing Season 14 is the current focus

Right now, Andy said their main priority is finding a way to cap off Season 14 without doing a traditional reunion. When it’s time to start thinking about RHONJ Season 15, he said that the network will take their time to make a final decision, just like they did with RHOA.

“We came out of that last season [of RHOA], and we knew, ‘Okay, we want to do extensive casting and we want to just give this some time,’” Andy explained.

“We gave it time and a lot of people were saying, ‘Well, where’s Atlanta? What’s happening? There hasn’t been any announcements,’ whatever. I’m so happy with what’s going on down in Atlanta right now,” he continued.

It sounds like he wants us to be patient. For now, let’s just focus on getting through Season 14 of RHONJ in one piece. We’re only five episodes in, and things have already gone downhill. Plus, Andy said that the explosive finale is going to be one for the history books.
