A major cast shakeup was predicted for The Real Housewives of New Jersey after Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga‘s latest falling out, but Bravo decided to stick to the status quo again for season 14. The network brought in some new Housewives for season 13, and while most of the drama still focused on the Giudice-Gorga family troubles, all of the season 13 ladies will be back — even the “friends of” the cast (Jackie Goldschneider and Jennifer Fessler).

Filming for RHONJ season 14 began in August 2023, later in the summer than when production normally begins. On September 24, US Weekly reported that Jennifer Aydin and Danielle Cabral were “suspended” from filming after they allegedly got into a “physical altercation.” Bravo is reportedly investigating the incident, though the network hasn’t addressed anything yet.

Here’s the latest updates on season 14 of RHONJ.

Premiere Date

Bravo hasn’t announced the premiere date for the next season of RHONJ. The past three seasons filmed over the summer, premiered in February, and concluded in May or June. Since filming for season 14 commenced in August, fans probably won’t see RHONJ season 14 air until sometime in the first half of 2024.

AllAboutTRH and PEOPLE both reported in July 2023 that the entire cast of RHONJ was invited to return to the show for season 14. “No contracts have arrived yet, but filming for season 14 is said to begin in August,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. The entire season 13 cast has been seen filming the upcoming season, with a few newbies whose roles are not confirmed.

The cast of RHONJ season 13 featured returning Housewives Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, and Jennifer Aydin, newbies Danielle Cabral and Rachel Fuda, and “Friends Of” Jackie Goldschneider and Jennifer Fessler. Several of the ladies previously addressed their futures on the show, with both Teresa and Melissa saying they had no intentions of leaving amidst their feud.

“I never run away when the going gets tough, that’s not my personality,” Melissa said on the May 4 episode of her podcast, On Display with Melissa Gorga. When she appeared on Elvis Duran & The Morning Show in March, Melissa said, “I don’t think I’m ready [to leave the show] just yet. I feel like I have a couple more in me. Unless, you know, Bravo has other plans.”

Teresa shut down the possibility that she would be leaving the show before the season 13 reunion started airing. “That’s not true,” the mother-of-four said in an interview with E! News. “Honey, I started this show, I am not going anywhere,” she added. “I am not going anywhere.”

The sisters-in-law are no longer speaking, which may make it difficult for them to film together. Their drama has only been heightened by the tension between Joe Gorga and Teresa’s new husband, Luis Ruelas.

Jackie was demoted from a full-time Housewife to a “Friend Of” for season 13. Jackie told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY on the Pay Attention Puh-Lease! podcast in April 2023 that she’d be happy to continue doing the show. “If they ask me, no matter what role they ask me, I would come back,” she said in the April 14 interview. “I love the show. I really do. This season I had a great experience. I wouldn’t mind coming back full-time, I wouldn’t mind coming back as a Friend. I’m not gonna push for either one — whatever happens, happens.”

RHONJ Season 14 Drama

There’s always drama when the Jersey ladies are in front of the camera. In late September, news broke that Jennifer Aydin and Danielle Cabral reportedly got into a “physical altercation” while at a party at Teresa’s house. A source told Us Weekly that Jennifer “allegedly pushed” Danielle, who “threw a beverage in a plastic cup” at her co-star. Jennifer and Danielle were reportedly suspended from filming as Bravo launched an investigation into the incident, per US Weekly.

The Rumored ‘Pause’

In May 2023, Page Six reported that RHONJ was going on an indefinite hiatus because of Teresa and Melissa’s falling out. “Bravo does not know how to proceed under the current conditions and that no one has been offered a contract – or been fired – for next season,” the outlet wrote in the report. A production insider told Page Six that “no official decisions on Season 14 have been made.”

Andy Cohen pushed back on the “pause” rumor in an interview with E! News in May. “I mean, we always take a break between seasons, so I don’t know why [that is out there],” he said.

When he appeared on Kelly Ripa‘s Let’s Talk Off Camera podcast, Andy said that RHONJ is “at a crossroads,” and that there are “several options” on how they can move forward with the franchise.
