With the start of filming on season 14 of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” next month, both Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are expected to return, along with the rest of the current cast.
It would seem that the seemingly insurmountable feud between brother and sister (and sister-in-law) isn’t enough to shake up the central cast of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” According Peopleboth teresa guidice and Melissa Gorga they are expected to return.
The outlet says both women received extended offers to return to the show, along with the rest of the season 13 cast, which includes Jennifer Aydin, Danielle Cabral, Dolores Catania, Rachel Fuda, and Margaret Josephs. Jennifer Fessler and Jackie Goldschneider have been asked to come back as “friends,” according to The Daily Mail.

However, the offers at this time are verbal as the contracts have reportedly not been received yet. How that will play out remains to be seen after Teresa and Melissa suggested at one point or another that they were ready to go. Filming for season 14 will reportedly begin next month.
Despite how ugly things got between Teresa and Melissa, as well as between their respective husbands Luis Ruelas and Teresa’s brother jose gorga, the drama was big news for Bravo. The dramatic finale to the reunion set a new ratings record for the network with 3 million viewers, according to People.
The one-two hits of “RHONJ” and “Vanderpump Rules” suddenly made Bravo’s actual lineup more into the cultural zeitgeist perhaps than it has been since the “Real Housewives” it was a fresh concept seemingly inspired by ABC’s then smash hit “Desperate Housewives.”

This latest season of “RHONJ” featured the preparation for Teresa’s wedding to Luis, which was filled with increasing tension between family members. The culmination came in the finale when Melissa and Joe opted not to even go to the nuptials after feeling disrespected over and over again over things like Teresa not asking Melissa to be a bridesmaid.
Things came to a head when Melissa found out that Teresa and Luis met Joe behind his back to tell him about the rumors they had heard that Melissa had cheated on him. She denied the accusation and never forgave the couple.
Ultimately, the family that fights together on reality TV builds boffo ratings on reality TV and can negotiate bigger contracts, or something like that. Bravo certainly has incentives to keep this train (wreck) running as is. And it’s not like this family hasn’t been at each other’s throats for years.
This time, however, it started to feel different, much like the latest cheating scandal in “Pump Rules.” That cast has been plagued by infidelities for a decade, but the so-called “Scandoval” somehow rocked the nation and created more enmity than ever among the cast, with once again the uncertainty of whether the show could go on.
RHONJ’s chaotic meeting ends with everyone attacking Louie, Andy yelling at Teresa, and zero resolution.
But, as “RHONJ” is said to be about to do, the cast of “Pump Rules” is mostly reunited and currently filming its own season 11. Just raquel leviss is anyone’s guess right now after she checked herself into a mental health clinic after cheating on her best friend. ariana madix with the latter’s boyfriend Thomas Sandoval.
As for “RHONJ,” rumors had started flying even before Part 3 of their epic reunion aired that the show was taking a break to restructure and recast. Andy Cohen However, he cleared up those rumors by saying that the show always went on hiatus, and in this case, considering how contentious the reunion was, a breather was definitely the right move.
Now, it looks like the recast won’t be necessary. Instead, fans can expect an almost guaranteed unhealthy amount of drama the moment any of those four individuals (Teresa, Melissa, Joe, and Luis) share the screen.
We’re sure there will still be plenty of drama left for the rest of the cast, though nothing is likely to match the family feud that has become the dominant storyline of each season.
