Andy spilled the tea about the direction of the show post Teresa Giudice’s conviction and addressed casting rumors. Specifically, the absurd rumor that Snooki formerly of the “Jersey Shore” will join the “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Shortly after the rumor first emerged, Andy told a Twitter follower “She ain’t joining.” To which Snooki added, “You can say that again.” Thank you Jesus!

In addition to opening up about Snooki not joining the series, Andy also dished about the show’s status now that jailbird Teresa Giudice is serving a 15-month prison sentence for fraud.

“I can’t imagine not filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Andy told Us Weekly. “It’s a big franchise for Bravo, and I think whatever we do, we’re going to do it the right way, so we’re still figuring that out right now.” Andy adds, “Anything is possible,” He teased. “There’s a lot of people in New Jersey.”

When asked could Teresa’s daughter, Gia, who’s an aspiring pop star have a shot someday as a future as a Housewife. Andy snarked,

“Maybe!” Cohen adding, “Anything is possible.”

    Andy needs to amend his statement to: “There are a lot of trashy, desperate famewhores in NJ.”

    Well, why not Gia now?. Her grandmother married at 14. It’s time she married and started a family, too.

    Damn.. Snooki would have been fun with that group. LOL If you think about her in the context of them? Hysterical!

    I’m not interested in anymore Giudices filmed for the show. Past or future cast members. One of the reasons it was so popular is because EVERYONE knew what CRIMINAL FRAUDS that are and watched just to see how far the Giudices would go before being held accountable. I wanted to see Teresa admit her mistakes and be held accountable. I saw the legal accountability and sentencing, but she’ll never admit what she did.

    I don’t even want to see the kids being kicked to the curb when their home is repossessed or sold. Watching it happen to Teresa/Joe would be entertaining, but the collateral damage is just sad and the adults refuse to get it.

  • She Stinks!

    So sick of this d-bag Andy. He’s had a talk show for a while now, and he never improves. His show is a juvenile embarrassment. No more Gorgas, Giudices, Manzos, Lauritas or Wakiles. So tired of having uneducated felon trash represent my home state!

    He’s a wordsmith, that one. 😉

      More like a Turdsmith. He creates turds by turning thirsty famewhores into “housewives(TM).”

    RHONJ is circling the drain. We the viewers, need to make our voices heard in the form of the ‘off’ button. Bravo has gotten worse and worse. The are the stripper pole of television.
