Andy Cohen Reveals Explosive Drama Between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga on ‘RHONJ’ Season 13 Reunion Nearly Made Him Walk Off Set
Andy Cohen Reveals Explosive Drama Between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga on ‘RHONJ’ Season 13 Reunion. The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s season 13 reunion taping on April 20, 2023, was so intense that Andy Cohen, the host of Watch What Happens Live, almost walked off-set due to the heated feud between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga.
During the April 24 episode of Andy Cohen Live on SiriusXM radio, Cohen revealed that the bickering between the sisters-in-law got so out of hand that he struggled to moderate the discussion and even lost his temper with Teresa. “The gloves are off. I’ve never seen anything like it,” Cohen said. “It was that thing of neither wanted the other to have the last word in any petty fight.”
According to Cohen, the hate between the two women was so palpable that it was hard to regain control of the conversation. “There were a lot of new allegations being made, and there was a lot of new material,” he said. Cohen added that the new episodes of RHONJ would make for “very compelling television” and promised that the reunion, which took nine hours to film, would be “monumental and upsetting.”
Cohen revealed that the drama got so intense that he nearly walked off-set and lost his temper with Teresa at one point. “I think I lost my s–t with her in a way that I haven’t maybe ever,” he said. However, he later apologized to her.
Cohen noted that the feud between Teresa and Melissa has been ongoing since Melissa and her husband, Joe Gorga, declined to attend Teresa’s August 2022 wedding to Luis “Louie” Ruelas. On the April 11 episode of RHONJ, Teresa’s involvement in a cheating rumor about Melissa came to light, with Melissa later revealing plans to skip her and Louie’s wedding.
RHONJ fans can catch the drama unfold every Tuesday at 9 p.m. on Bravo. Meanwhile, Cohen Live airs on SiriusXM radio from Monday to Friday at 10 a.m. ET.
