Andy Cohen hinted at what fans can expect given the ongoing estrangement between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga on season 14 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
During the “Ask Andy” panel at BravoCon 2023 on November 3, Cohen was asked about the upcoming season. “I think what’s refreshing about this season, and I actually found it kind of refreshing last season, is that they’re not even pretending,” he explained of Giudice and Gorga. “I mean, they just hate each other.”
“Once that’s done, it actually takes the energy out of the whole thing, and then you can move on and tell other stories about what happens this season,” he teased. “I think it will be really interesting for people [to see] because there are many new alliances. All the places change this season and I think it’s really interesting to watch.”
