Bravo fans, it’s time to head back to the Garden State because The Real Housewives of New Jersey is officially returning for season 14.
Season 13 ended on a heated note when costars (and sisters-in-law) Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga nearly came to blows over their ongoing feud at the tell-all reunion. Rumors previously circulated that Melissa cheated on husband Joe Gorga, which the “On Display” singer denied and claimed was spread by Teresa. The Gorgas then skipped Teresa’s wedding to Luis “Louie” Ruelas in August 2022 following the drama.
The family members even ceased communication, but executive producer Andy Cohen did not think they would opt out of season 14. “I can imagine anything,” Andy exclusively told Us Weekly in June 2023, before noting it was “hard” to picture RHONJ without mainstays Teresa and Melissa.
The talk show host quipped to Us at the time that Teresa and Melissa’s “hatred” for one another was “at a 10” during the season 13 reunion.
Despite the feud, neither Bravolebrity planned to walk away from RHONJ for good.
