Shocking: Top #RHONJ Executive FIRED Amid Ratings Slump & Production Manipulation Allegations! (Exclusive)

Posted on Feb 12 2018 - 1:53pm by BeachSpin

An Executive VP of Sirens Media, the production company behind The Real Housewives of New Jersey, has been allegedly fired.

An insider tells AllAboutTheTea.com that Bravo had a hand in the move to replace the bigwig, one of the driving forces behind RHONJ’s ratings.

Lucilla D’Agostino is out. Bravo knows that viewers are growing tired of the fake storylines and manufactured drama that now largely define ‘Housewives,’” our source tells AllAboutTheTea.com. “Bravo leaned on Sirens to make the change.”

The reality show has failed to rake in the ratings in recent years, and steady viewer decline might hint to what triggered the decision to shake up production. For the Season 8 premier, viewership fell by 44% with a staggering 1.25 million viewers tuning in.

Former RHONJ cast member, Jim Marchese, previously sounded off about production interference, after leaving the show.

“If we missed a beat, production wanted more drama, or a direction changed, we would be pulled into the kitchen and redirected.” Marchese told AllAboutTheTea.com exclusively. “The emails [from producers below] give an outline of the scenes, but once on set, the producers would literally feed each cast member lines to repeat…word for word.”
