Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has been a fixture of pop culture since 2009! She exploded onto the scene with MTV’s Jersey Shore. For the last few years, rumors have been circulating that she will join Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey. But Bravo executive Andy Cohen didn’t want her on the show. 

But now, he is strongly considering it. 

Snooki Isn’t Joining RHONJ Season 11

Earlier this month, Snooki was visiting the Jersey shore at the same time as RHONJ’s Melissa Gorga. As New Jersey natives, the two know each other and hang out often. And it seems every time they do, rumors begin again that Snooki is joining RHONJ. 

Snooki caught wind of the latest rumor and quickly shut it down. She replied on a social media post that she hasn’t been asked to join the show. “Sowwy,” she says to disappointed fans. Those include Melissa Gorga, who replied, “Damn it!!” to Snooki’s comment.


The Jersey Shore star used to be completely against being a Housewife. But now she is “so interested,” Celeb Magazine reports. 

It seems Snooki isn’t the only one who has had a change of heart about her joining RHONJ.

But Bravo’s Andy Cohen No Longer Hates the Idea

Andy Cohen has been shutting down rumors about Snooki joining RHONJ since 2015. But he recently told Kelly Ripa that he isn’t against the idea anymore. On September 17, the Live With Kelly and Ryan host had an Instagram Live chat with Andy Cohen. 

The former soap star brought up the rumors about Snooki and RHONJ. During the chat session, Andy Cohen revealed his previous thoughts on the matter. He considered Jersey Shore and RHONJ “two different shows.”

Additionally, Snooki is more likely to fit into the Bravo show now that she is married with kids. As fans likely know, Snooki wed Jionni LaValle in 2014. They have three children together. 

Speaking to Kelly Ripa, Andy teased that Snooki joining RHONJ is “something to keep our eyes out for.” He even joked maybe next season. Season 11 is already in production. 

RHONJ Season 11 Still Under Production

Season 11 of RHONJ began filming earlier this year. Like many shows, production was shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the show is filming again now. In fact, the ladies took their drama out of New Jersey and into Lake George, NY over the summer. 

Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, Jackie Goldschneider, and Jennifer Aydin are all returning for Season 11. They join OG Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga. An Instagram fan account @rhonjobsessed shared a photo of some of the RHONJ stars filming a group event earlier this week.


Bravo has yet to announce when the new season of RHONJ starts. In the meantime, RHOC’s Season 15 begins on October 14, 2020. Additionally, an all-new Housewife franchise, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City debuts on November 11, 2020.
