The Real Housewives of New Jersey The Season 13 reunion had the reality TV world in a stranglehold when it first aired. Not just the reunion itself, but the impact it had on the future of the franchise. Fans were eagerly waiting to see what would happen to their favorites.
The bitter divide between them Teresa Giudice, her brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa Gorga made viewers nervous. And Teresa’s husband Luis Ruelas didn’t improve the situation either. It became unclear whether Teresa and Luis would ever film with Melissa and Joe again. And if that were the case, would a couple have to leave?
Even the fates of the other housewives were thrown into question as each star was essentially forced to take sides in the Teresa vs. Melissa drama. But to the relief of some and the chagrin of others, when the contracts came out it was said that everyone would come back. And Teresa has demonstrated amazing malicious compliance ever since.
Why Bravo wanted to punish Tre
Despite everyone coming back for season 14, Teresa has refused to film any scenes with Melissa and is unlikely to change her mind before the next reunion. Melissa, on the other hand, said that it would be good for her to film with her sister-in-law. The defiance doesn’t look good on Teresa’s part.
Plus, Teresa just took a trip to Switzerland in the middle of filming. She brought Luis with her, but no other housewives. It’s hard to imagine that the producers would be too pleased with such antics. Before the contracts were announced, there were rumors that Teresa had been offered a reduced role for season 14, but had only agreed to return for a full-time role.
Tre and Mel split the fan base after Season 13. And while Teresa may have a minority of fans on her side (mostly thanks to Louie), they’re still a vocal minority. The Tre-Huggers or Stumps would scream in outrage if she were demoted. Bravo would face potentially unprecedented backlash. As it stands, nothing is likely to change.
Real Housewives of New Jersey season 14 is expected to air on Bravo in early 2024.

Could this be true?
