Will ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ Return For Season Seven? Andy Cohen Weighs In
The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s sixth season wrapped on Tuesday night, and already, Bravo exec Andy Cohen has spoke out about a possible seventh season. On Tuesday during an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session on Reddit, the Real Housewives creator weighed in on the future of the show.
“We have not made any plans relating to the future of the Jersey Housewives,” Cohen explained, according to a November 11 report by Bravo’s The Dish. “The final reunion is airing tonight, and we’ll go back and meet and talk and re-evaluate soon.”
In the weeks since Teresa Giudice’s fraud sentencing, which occurred on October 2, rumors have continued to swirl in regard to The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s seventh season, and who would be on board. On Twitter, as the Inquisitr reported, Dina Manzo told a fan she had no desire to return to the show because her soul couldn’t take such “horrible people.”
Jacqueline Laurita also spoke of season seven on Twitter, telling fans, via the Inquisitr, she’d like to face off with Manzo during the series’ next installment. Following Laurita’s confirmation of her return, a source told Radar Online producers would like to have her back in an upgraded role, as a full time housewife, on season seven.
“Production has made it very clear that they want Jacqueline back, and they don’t want her back just for cameos, either. Production is planning to offer Jacqueline as a contract for a full-time housewife. It was very clear with an examination of the ratings that Jacqueline’s appearance had a huge impact on the show,. Bravo is certain that with her back on the show, the ratings would continue to be strong.”
When asked, during the Reddit AMA, who was the easiest New Jersey housewife to work with, Cohen said, “There are many that are easy. I mean, there are a whole lot that are easy to work with, actually! I’d have to say Teresa, for all she’s been through, has been very professional and easy to work with.”
While working with Tersa on The Real Housewives of New Jersey is often tons of fun for Cohen, he admitted to struggling with her and Joe’s legal issues during the show’s sixth season.
“What’s happening now with Teresa and Joe, was challenging and unusual and just—you know—surprising. But I don’t think that it’s fair to say that there have been tragedies that have been associated with other people’s pursuit of fame. In other words, Teresa and Joe are being prosecuted for something that happened before they were even on [The Real Housewives of New Jersey].”
