‘RHONJ’ Producers In PANIC MODE After Drama Fizzles As Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice Go Radio Silent!
Real Housewives of New Jersey producers are in a mad scramble to stir up drama amid a Season 14 standoff between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga.
The sisters-in-law gave each other the silent treatment during one of the cast events filmed for the upcoming season according to the outlet’s source, who revealed that the two “did not speak to say one word to each other,” the U.S. Sun reports.
Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga, who last faced off during a fiery Season 13 reunion, continued to ignore each other at subsequent cast events and to this day “refuse to speak to each other,” according to the insider. The dynamic has been a challenge for producers, who have purportedly been struggling to capture drama for Season 14.
The insider told the outlet—”The drama has shifted from Melissa and Teresa to the other cast because there is no drama between Melissa and Teresa since they are not talking whatsoever. Producers have to still make a show that’s entertaining and need the ratings, so they’re pulling strings to make it work.”
Jennifer Aydin’s physical altercation with co-star, Danielle Cabral, has been the most dramatic teaser of the season, thus far. The women were suspended from filming after they sparred during a bash hosted by Teresa Giudice, on September 21. Jennifer reportedly “pushed” Danielle, who “grabbed a drink and threw it upside Jennifer’s face resulting in blood.”
Page Six went on to report that production company, Sirens Media, and Bravo investigated the incident. The women returned to filming a few days after the probe concluded.
Danielle spoke to the U.S. Sun after the cast brouhaha, assuring the outlet that she was “good.”
She said — “My friend group saves my life because what I have is – you know when they say, ‘When the bones are good, the house doesn’t crumble?’ Bones are really good.”
Danielle added — “Everything else is noise. At the end of the day. I have an army that shows up to my house every day. ‘You good?’… ‘I’m good!’”
Cast members, Margaret Josephs, Dolores Catania, Rachel Fuda and Jennifer Fessler were all present for Danielle’s Boujie Kidz party on September 27. Jennifer Aydin did not attend.
Jackie Goldschneider and Margaret have also been at odds this season, but an insider claimed that the conflict was actually a “minuscule fight” that was “dramatized for cameras.”
“Margaret and Jackie got into a big argument over her book [The Weight of Beautiful],” an insider told The U.S. Sun.
“Jackie gave out copies of her book to a few cast members, like pals Jennifer [Fessler] and Melissa, but Margaret did not get one,” the tipster explained. ”Jackie believes Margaret is trying to give herself credit for getting the book deal, but really it was their shared publicist, who Margaret introduced to Jackie, who helped get the deal.”
