Andy Cohen admits that he is torn over RHONJ stars Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. Right now, filming for Season 14 is on hold as things get sorted out. It seems that the biggest issue is what to do with Teresa and the Gorgas. Fans are just as torn as Andy is over who should stay and who should be let go. More so, some believe that both should no longer be on the long-running series and maybe start fresh. So, what does the man of Bravo have to say? Read on for more details.
Andy Cohen Torn Over Melissa & Teresa, Both ‘Really Popular’
It has been a long ride for Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice. Melissa came onto the scene in Season 3 as she was Teresa’s SIL. During part one of the Season 13 reunion, host Andy Cohen admitted why the Gorgas were initially cast. He shared that he found Joe Gorga hilarious and loved that Melissa had a double staircase, much like Teresa. So, he felt that they were the perfect addition to the show. Now, after ten seasons, the families have consistently butted heads, alleged they are lying, and Teresa now believes that her SIL sent her to jail. What is Andy and Bravo to do?
According to ET, Andy Cohen opened up on the Let’s Talk Off Camera podcast about the whole situation, admitting that RHONJ is “at a crossroads.” The father of two went on to say this about Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice: “There are several options. They’re both really popular. I think they’re both walking around with the institutional knowledge that they both have and the institutional hurt feelings, especially Teresa. Teresa let out at the last reunion that she was mad at Melissa for not changing her wedding date because Teresa was pregnant at her wedding and she was a bridesmaid. She didn’t like how she looked. So this is now going back for 15 years.”
Andy Cohen makes it clear that both women are actually right in some ways. More so, he acknowledges they have valid points that are really good so that makes the struggle real as to which team to pick. There are fans who have allegiance to Teresa since she is an OG. One person tweeted: “She’s been the face since Season 1. The table flip is still the most iconic hw moment.”
What’s Next For The Show?
As aforementioned, RHONJ is on hiatus right now as they apparently try to bring it back to its core of family. Usually, they film over the summer but that is not happening. Now, if they film from September through early winter, the hope is that Bravo will get more family-friendly content. As to whether the network will choose Melissa Gorga or Teresa Giudice is yet to be seen. They may choose one, both, or neither but, as Andy Cohen said, both women are “really popular.” Time will tell but the reunion has just begun and allegations are being thrown left, right, and center.
