Andy Cohen Denies ‘RHONJ’ Cast Shake Up Amid Low Ratings! 

Andy Cohen swiftly dismissed recent speculation suggesting a major cast shake-up for Season 15 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, despite low ratings.

Teresa Giudice

The executive producer directly addressed a report from Radar Online, published on Wednesday, alleging that the Bravo reality series was undergoing a “total revamp,” with only Teresa Giudice, Dolores Catania, and Rachel Fuda being retained.

In response, Andy Cohen clarified to Entertainment Tonight, “There was a bunch of casting news about ‘Jersey’ that was reported today. None of it is true. No decisions have been made. We haven’t even had any serious conversations about next season.”

Melissa Gorga

The 56 year old reiterated a crucial point, emphasizing that any casting rumors circulating within the next “six months is fake, so don’t believe it.”

Andy Cohen further elaborated on the decision to deviate from a “traditional reunion” with the Season 14 cast, describing them as “divisive.” He expressed confidence that viewers “will understand” the rationale behind this choice.

“The finale is epic, and it’s great, and I’m excited for everyone to see it, and we all came to the same understanding after watching it, so I don’t think it’ll be a big surprise,” he divulged.

Earlier this month, Page Six verified that producers had informed the women of “RHONJ” that a “traditional reunion wasn’t happening this season” due to ongoing conflicts among them.

An insider provided insight, stating that the cast — including Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs, Dolores Catania, Jennifer Aydin, Rachel Fuda, Danielle Cabral, as well as “friends of” Jenn Fessler and Jackie Goldschneider — had been informed that producers were exploring alternative ways to wrap up the season.

Additionally, the source hinted at an unprecedented level of drama during an upcoming group dinner in the finale. Andy Cohen later confirmed the departure from the usual reunion format, explaining that producers were taking “time” to determine the best way to conclude the season and progress.

“Right now, we’re just kind of focusing on, ‘OK, well, if we’re not doing a conventional reunion, what are we doing and what is something different that we could do?’” he stated on SiriusXM’s “Reality Checked.”

“Things take time, and we want to take a minute to figure things out. There’s no point in rushing into something just to rush into something,” Andy Cohen emphasized.

As the seasons roll on, the once-sizzling reality series, Real Housewives of New Jersey is facing a cold front in viewer engagement. The latest episode, airing this past Sunday, June 9, saw a stark drop in viewership, with only 699,000 tuning in. This decline marks a troubling trend for the show, especially when compared to the numbers from earlier episodes this season. The premiere garnered 837,000 viewers, while the second episode managed to retain 740,000.
